12. Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons.
Never used a laptop as my daily since i only bought them to make profit. I bought a lenovo ideapad 3 for my sister and it looked pretty good. I dont mind brands as long as the laptop im lookin into is good and reliable.
13. What country do you live in?
UK (but europe not a problem also)
14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
Will be using using it daily at work and at home. I wont buy a desktop for atleast 1-2 years so it will be my main. . A good keyboard would be nice. I know my budget wont fulfill all my wishes but i think smth in this range could do.

so edit :
was doing a bit of research and found out i dont need a dedicated gpu for these games... Intel iris xe gpu has become very much capable and after checking some youtube benchmarks about i5-1135G7 ,, 7 5700U/5 5500U and thought i can cut my budget on gpu and go straight 512m2 16gb ram.
