I want a higher end (not top) gaming Laptop (cant use PC, only laptop) with great screen (nits, ppi should be high) Ryzen processor only (not intel) and with atleast RTX 3060(or similar). I'd be playing games (want ot play RDR2 at ultra with 60fps) watching HD movies and some Video editing/processing. I've reviewed ROG Zephyrus, HP Victus, Legion etc any details however minute would be appreciated. Budget ~$1800

Stick with RTX 3070; RTX 3060 might be somewhat limited by its 6GB of VRAM, RTX 3080 felt too incremental over 3070 to me for the price delta, while high-end AMD mobile graphic cards were a bit of a myth when I was in the market couple months back - Things might have changed somewhat there.

You may need a desktop to play RDR2 at ultra with stable 60fps at anything above 1080p.

Whatever you buy, make sure to read a few reviews - Display quality matters just as much as processor and GPU, while the same RTX 3070 might well be 60% more powerful at, say, 145W instead of 80-90W, depending on the limit imposed by weight & size limit and the cooling design.

ok great. But I wonder which one would be best in terms of screen and budget to get 3070. I also wanted a bigger screen, atleast no less that 15''. Also is Ryzen 9 5900 worth it over 7 5800? I want to keep things under budget as well.
