I'm in the market for a new laptop. I have a $1000 budget. I know companies like Lenovo offer a military discount. So if the price after discount and before tax and shipping is $1000 or less that is fine. Right off let me say what I'm looking for specifically. 4 must haves. Metal chassis or lid (any metal ie. aluminum, magnesium, etc), 15" screen or larger, backlit keyboard, and a discreet video card. I'm not concerned about things such a as manufacturer, build quality, or storage capacity. Thanks I'm advance. I've owned several laptops over the years, but never one with the aforementioned attributes. This is my first post by the way.
Thanks for your input. I ended up going with a Lenovo Legion 5 with a Ryzen 4800H and an AMD 1650ti. I got it off of their website for just over 900 bucks after their own promo code and my military discount. I was about to pull the trigger on a Razer 15 that Amazon has for $500 off regular price, but I was unsure if it was the 2019 or the 2020 model. I heard some sketchy things about the quality control at Razer. Some folks have said they ironed a lot of them out in the 2020 models. Thanks again for the advice.
