Hi,

I'm in need of a laptop that I can use for development (mostly programmng) where I work a lot with realtime 3d graphics, and I sometimes play games that requires a pretty good computer.
For this I of course need pretty good components, but I also need a crisp screen with good colors.
For the visual design of the laptop, all I would really ask for is that it's minimalistic and not somthing with a bunch of rgb that loudly screams "I AM A GAMER".
I will use linux on this laptop, so windows is absolutely not a requirement.
My budget for this is around ~$1400 to $1700 (usd).

If your use is primarily development, it's better to get some thin and light laptop. These kind of laptops are not meant for gaming but a few come with dedicated graphics that can suffice your needs. For example: Hp Envy 13. However, they tend to heat more than traditional laptops.

Your best bet would be the MS Surface Book 2.
It provides the best balance between performance and portability.
