So i need a laptop primarily for entertainment music, games, and school. Budget is under $800 the less the better, Games i play are minecraft, and RTS's also maybe upcoming shooters who knows. i dont really care about anything concerning screen res, weight or bettery life. i just want a reliable machine that won't blue screen in a month or two and is the best for what money i have. I heard great reviews on both but im a little sceptical on the Dell. What do you recommend or is there a better laptop i should consider?. thanks

To be honest with you, if all you play are minecraft and RTS games, I would prioritize battery life and portability, as almost anything can run the games you play. As a student, you can appreciate having a light laptop that has a long battery life. I would recommend the Dell xps 13, as the thing is powerful yet super light.

However, if you value gaming over portability and battery life, you should get the dell.

Not sure about the Lenovo but someone i know just got that exact Dell laptop and they love it. The screen is really nice and the speakers are pretty loud so for entertainment the Dell is pretty good. And almost anything can play rts and minecraft so i wouldn't worry about that. The only cons about the Dell is that under full load the battery dies in about 1.5 hours.
