I need a new laptop since my macbook does not support the apps I need for my classes, those apps being autoCAD and mathlab. My budget is around $1000 and was hoping for a laptop that can handle light gaming like 2d fighting games. Mostly I hope there is one that has reasonable battery size and somewhat lightweight.
 
HP High Performance 15.6" Touch-Screen Laptop (15-EF0023dx) AMD Ryzen 5 3500U 12GB Memory 256GB SSD - Natural Silver https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087YVDX4L/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_5YK7VB8EJW33139HWN5F?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

I bought one for my son and he loves it. You can get larger SSDs and pay closer to your $1000

2021 HP 17.3" HD+ Touchscreen Business Laptop, AMD 6-Core Ryzen 5 5500U (>i7-1160G7) up to 4.0GHz, 12GB RAM, 512GB SSD+1TB HDD, HDMI, Fingerprint Reader, Webcam, WiFi, Win 10 with ES 32GB USB https://www.amazon.com/dp/B09FCR3R9M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_RXQ08VBN3KGJ3WZS2FSM?psc=1

They both have way better integrated graphics than anything else out there in their class
