Hello, I will be possibly starting work in the near future so I would be needing a mobile good laptop computer for everything since I am usually not in one place. I am also gaming (usually higher end games) as well as doing graphic design jobs on the side when needed (possibly will be needed for the work too) so I was wondering which laptop would be recommended considering the above? I am looking for something that is value for the price while at the same time being able to serve for gaming. I play all kinds of games from no man's sky to the witcher 3, indie titles and so on, smite for online as well as currently elden ring.

Thanks

Budget is going to play a big part here. Value for money is a bit relative. If you get 10 FPS for $100 and 60FPS for $1000. the 10FPS is the better 'value' on a dollar per frame basis....

You should be able to find some 3050, 11th or 12th Gen i5 and 8GB options for <$1,000. Should really be shooting for 16GB minimum these days, but costs can be disproportionate to upgrading the RAM - if a particular laptop allows, quite a few are soldered these days (especially thin & light)

Can just about squeeze in 16GB + 3060 for $1k too.
