Im currently using a macbook pro 13 inch, but it's borrowed, in my opinion its a good laptop but it's more suited for graphics designers than a lawyer who does a lot of reading and some stress relief gaming

13. What country do you live in?
I travel frequently between Mexico, the US and Canada, but my family live currently at Mexico, so it would be easier to buy one there.

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
I spend most of my time with my laptop so portable should be the choice, but I also need it to fill the role of a desktop
I was thinking about Dell inspiron 14z but I'm not totally convinced by it

I'll appreciate any help and suggestions you can give me
