Hi all, I am going to college soon and I need a new laptop. My needs:
A Graphics Card to run some demanding games (like Dark Souls 3 or Outlast 2)
Touchscreen (don't care if it flips or not)
Lightweight (have to carry it around)
14-inch screen preferably (I found it best for me)

I can go to $1100 but that is it... So, any recommendations?

Thanks a lot!

Hi guys, I wanted to buy a new laptop and I have thoroughly searched the internet to find the perfect one for me. In the end, here are my picks:
Lenovo Thinkpad T480s 14inch; MX150 2GB; i5-8350U; Touchscreen; 8GB RAM; and 126GB SSD (1.37kg).
ASUS Zenbook Flip 14 Convertible Laptop 14inch; MX150 2GB; i7-8565U; Touchscreen; 16GB RAM, 512GB PCIe SSD (1.49 kg).
ASUS ZenBook Pro UX480 14Inch; GTX 1050 2GB; i7-8565U; Touchscreen; 8 GB RAM; 256 GB SSD (1.6 kg).

My needs: Good build quality, 14 inches (or 13.9 inches) screen, Touchscreen, Light-weight (college-student), graphics for playing games and editing videos.
All of them are at similar prices for me and the only good ones on my budget but I can't decide which one to get. I have a Lenovo laptop and I am happy with its build quality but it has some heating issues. I don't know about ASUS and how are their laptops. So, which one of these should I get?

According to your needs, Zenbook Pro 14 will be the best for you.

No Thunderbolt-3 but it will serve you better than the other 2 laptops.

No big difference in portability
but if build quality, durability or battery backup is your top priority, then get the Lenovo Thinkpad T480s. Avoid the 1366 x 768 model.

Hi guys, I am looking for a new laptop. So, my needs:

  1. I wanna do audio and 1080p heavy video editing (using Mixcraft and sony vegas) on it.
  2. I want to play some light games (CSGO) (Maybe Dark Souls 3) [P.S. I was a huge gamer about a year ago but now I have stopped playing most new games and just play sometimes with friends; also I think gaming will be a good distraction from my engineering studies].
  3. I want it to be light and have great battery life (will be carrying it around on campus).
  4. I want a touchscreen and good build quality.
So, I searched the entire internet for the best match and I found these:

Lenovo Flex 14 (it is cheap and basic, will just replace RAM with 16GB stick)

Dell XPS 15 9560 (Will Replace the RAM to 16GB) Also, is it worth the best build quality?

So, this is it. Which one should I get? My budget was around 1100 but should I go the extra mile for Dell XPS?

Please help! And also, please don't drop your suggestions cause I have seen every laptop out there and I don't think I need suggestions now. It will be one of these...



Thanks!
