  1. I would like to stick as close to $1500 as I can, I'll be using Blender, Meshroom, maybe Maya, Krita, and yeah I'll be using a drawing tablet.
  2. I need a laptop for homework that'll consist of 3D modeling, rendering, digital painting, and I would like to do some photo scanning with meshroom this summer while I'm away from my desktop. I would like to stay close to $1500 and it would be great to have good color accuracy. The Dell XPS 15 for $1,400 has great color accuracy but only a 1050ti. I like the idea of getting the MSI GS65 that also has great color accuracy as well as a better gpu for faster rendering but it's closer to $1,800. I did find a refurbished or as amazon calls it (renewed) GS65 for $1,400 but I'm not sure how safe that is to get(also doesn't have much storage, does it have a spot for a seccond ssd?). Someone suggested the Cyberpower Tracer III TSVR2200 but I couldn't find info on color accuracy of its monitor. They also suggested the Lenovo Legion y540/740(also costco has a y545 with a 1660ti that's I think supposed to be in the middle of those but I can't find any reviews or info on color accuracy of the screen), which have alright color accuracy and might be a good mid ground of faster gpu and color accuracy. I'm really not sure what to pick, what do you guys think about the dell XPS 15 vs something with a better gpu? Is it safe or a bad idea to get a renewed GS65? What do you think about these laptops and do you have any other suggestions?

    Better CPU or better GPU?

    Yeah from the US and I was hoping to spend $1,000-$1,300. Just need something to use during summers while I don't have my desktop. Decent battery life is always nice but I'll usually be close to an outlet so not a huge worry. And something on the lighter side would be nice so it's easier to take places but I'm not worried about trying to find some really light slim laptop.
  4. I'm looking for a new laptop to game a bit and also do 3d modeling, sculpting, and rendering stuff. I'm considering 2 that are basically the same except for the gpu and cpu. The slightly cheaper option has a Ryzen 7 R7-3750h and gtx 1660 ti and the other that's $100 more has an i7 8750h and gtx 1060. Is the better cpu worth a bit of a worse gpu? Also if you have better laptop suggestions feel free to drop them R7 3750h + GTX 1660 TI https://www.newegg.com/gold-steel-asus-tuf-gaming-tuf505du-eb74-gaming-entertainment/p/N82E16834235196?Description=ASUS TUF Gaming Laptop&cm_re=ASUS_TUF_Gaming_Laptop-_-34-235-196-_-Product i7-8750h + GTX 1060 https://www.newegg.com/metal-asus-tuf-gaming-fx504gm-es74-gaming-entertainment/p/N82E16834235064?Description=ASUS TUF Gaming Laptop&cm_re=ASUS_TUF_Gaming_Laptop-_-34-235-064-_-Product&Item=9SIAEYJ8ZZ0741
  5. I got a Samsung Notebook 9 Pro (I think 2018 model) a bit ago for school so I could draw on the screen. Sadly the Wacom Bamboo feel that would have been compatible with it is discontinued so I don't have many options for a bigger pen than the tiny one included. Right now my best option I'm aware of is getting a Samsung Tab 3 or 4 pen to use. QUESTION: Does anyone know if the larger pen that comes with the new 2019 model that hasn't come out yet will be compatible with the older models or should I get one of the Tab pens?

    PC Sort Of Turning On

    It hasn't turned off yet running like this but there isn't a video signal from the mobo so I'm guessing you're right and it's a dead mobo. Thanks

    PC Sort Of Turning On

    So my PC was working fine yesterday but it's not turning on today. I powered it on and the power LED is on, the case fans are on, the cpu fan is on, and the gpu fans are on but that's it. Does anyone know what could be wrong? If you need more info just ask.
