I'm looking to buy a new laptop in the next week or so somewhere in the 800-1200 dollar range. I have been out of the laptop market for about 10 years now so no idea whats a good value.

will only be using for some light gaming (WOW, LOL etc) and some streaming and excel uses.

I have gotten a couple recommendations from some friends but wanted to post here to get some other opinions.

and https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CTHLX8C/ref=cm_sw_r_other_apa_i_eBqoDbFB0R56N

are the two I have had suggested to me thus far. My only reservations with those options are that I would generally like a more reserved and sleek design (a la the razer laptops)

thanks in advance for all your help!

Acer Predator Helios 300 is a high end gaming laptop and not great for portability.

For e-sports gaming, any Ryzen-5 laptop would work but if you really like gaming, then don't think of anything less than GTX 1050.

Check out the Asus FX505
but if looking for a light weight gaming laptop, then get the MSI GF63.

and if you need a workhorse, then the new Acer Predator Helios 300 will be the best for you.
