Hey everyone. I'm heading out to college this year and I don't know what I need to buy. I'm going in for computer science and business. I also want to learn and do some game development. I was thinking maybe a gaming labtop. I need one with good battery life like the razer edge. I read that it has like 6-7 hours on battery without gaming. Or I had an idea that if i got a gaming labtop with bad battery life id just buy more batteries, but then I'd have to shut the computer off. Can you guys give me some recommendations or advice?
