Hey folks. You guys helped out a bunch earlier today with recommendations, so I'm back for more.
I'd like to find a laptop around $1,000 with the following:
Primarily for multimedia (music, videos)
Moderate gaming, enough to play current games at about medium quality or better
At least 16 GB max memory
SSD boot + larger HDD
Full HD screen preferably with IPS
Don't care about touchscreen or 2-in-1 or anything like that. Just solid, generally fast, and casual gaming.
I think I'll recommend looking at the MSI GE60 Apache Pro-003 although you might go over budget with customizing. A slightly less expensive option might be the MSI GP60 Leopard-1053 which will give you a little more headroom for customization.
