Hi, i already have a desktop gaming pc. But for my job i need a laptop, so i need it to work (run softwares like STATA, R, Python and excel). However, im a gamer so it would be nice if i can play some games. Ofcourse im not specting something fancy.

My Budget is around 1100 usd. Could be a little higher

Thank you

$1100 should land you an i7 9750 w/ a GTX 1650 with a 144hz screen. Thats more than enough to power through all current games. The sweet spot range is about $1200-$1500 which can you get an i7 10XXX, RTX 20/30 series, with a 240/300hz 15.6 screen. Thats a bit more bulletproof for the future...You get what you pay for.

What do you guys think?
The first one.
Much better CPU, the GPU is similar to the 1080.
More M.2 storage and you can always upgrade ram to 32gb.
