4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop? Laptop
You mean you'd like a portable laptop or would this be a laptop that would replace a desktop(essentially being sedentary throughout it's useful life)?

Apparently this would wash the other laptops away in terms of build quality;
though the Acer's would be a more value for money kind of deal considering you get the same hardware internally as you do on the Asus one you've narrowed down but the exterior would be lackluster. The Lenovo URL doesn't work for me but I did locate this using the SKU you'd provided prior;,-i7-12700h.product.4000067185.html
^ Is that it?
All laptops that you've narrowed down are good contenders for a purchase, though would you want to add additional storage internally to either of your laptops down the road?

laptop as I'm disable and unable to sit at a desk to use a desktop comfortably. Unless I can get a desktop with portable screen that i can use on my lap.

I'm leaning towards the ASUS GU603ZM but it will need to come back in-stock but I'm not in a rush currently.

yes that was the Lenovo I was looking at.

Would love more storage but its not needed as i have external hdds. The 1TB is mostly just game files i currently have a 1TB and have 222GBs free.
