So, since I am in computing school, there is lots of programming. I also like to play games. Though I do have a PC with GTX 1070 and i5 2400, I need a portable PC, that I can bring to school. So I was thinking about buying HP Omen (2018) 15" with 1050. What do you guys think about it and what laptop should I be looking for?
Carrying a gaming laptop to the computing school can become a hurdle for you after some time. I would suggest you, buy a gaming laptop which weight as light as possible. HP Omen (2018) weighs near about 4.5 pounds (if I am not wrong).
You can check out "ASUS S510UN-EH76 VivoBook" if you are comfortable with NVIDIA GeForce MX150
My personal suggestion would be Dell XPS 15-9570, as for programming and gaming both we need a large screen, better processing speed. This machine has got both the features. for graphics purpose it uses Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti so it would be more easier to use it.
