Which laptop would be best suited in this situation?


Jul 26, 2015
Hi, I am planning to travel back to Korea during my university semester break, staying for 2 whole months. I was planning to get a laptop which I can do some gaming, broadcast and also rendering videos with. However most of the laptops I have looked into weigh a lot. Could anyone please suggest one that can do the above while not being really heavy? Screen size doesn't really matter as I will be plugging into an external monitor. Thank you in advance.

1. My budget would be anything up to 2000$ usd

2. I would prefer a smaller screen size, so around 15/14 inches or smaller

3. I heard that screen resolution can make an impact on battery life so 1920 x 1080 would be ideal

4. The laptop I am looking for is only a substitute for when I travel overseas as I will not be able to gain access to my PC

5. Basically the longer the better while under load

6. I'm not really a heavy gamer but I have been playing a lot of Overwatch lately and I would the laptop to be able to run it at around medium - high settings.

7. The main tasks which the laptop will mainly conduct are video editing and and live broadcasting.

8. For storage, a single SSD between 200-500 Gb would be sufficient as I will bring a portable SSD with me to hold all the files I need.

9. None at the moment, but I would prefer sites that can ship internationally and a reliable one.

10. The laptop is just a substitute so I think around a year worth of time.

11. A DVD ROM/ writer will be enough

12. Any brand other than Alienware and Aorus would be great as laptops manufactured from these two are considered really heavy

13. I live in Hong Kong atm and I'm going back to Korea to visit my family

14. Thanks in advance !
