I am looking for a new laptop that will get me through college in 2 years and i have a pretty specific set of requirements.
first though, I want to ask about resources. the biggest laptop data base i could find was on bestbuy but all my requirements were met with only one laptop. does anyone know of some other good websites to buy or even just find laptops?
my budget is upwards of 1500 capped at 3000 but i dont think i need to spend that much to get what i'm looking for. generally i'm looking for something that will age well (wont be horribly outdated in a couple of years) and is fairly portable. I do love my video games, and lastly need it to have a decent battery life and portability.
Here are the specs i am shooting for, feel free to criticize them if you think it necessary.
Ports: Ethernet, HDMI, 3 USB 3.0, headphone jack, lightning port
GPU: RTX 2060 or better with 6-8 gigs VRAM
CUP: i honestly have no idea. the more money the better?
RAM: 16-32 gigs. (prolly 16)
display: 1080p 120-240 Hz (would it be a mistake to go for 4k? i know this would take up more battery and give slower fps and tax the GPU more)
These are pretty much my minimum specs meaning that the laptop i would want to buy would probably have all this and a little more, not most of this
I'm worried about making the wrong choice. is it reasonably possible for a name brand laptop to have major pitfalls in design?
if anyone has any recommendations as to brands or models that are better please lmk. when i look for laptops everything sounds like the ultra super-duper all the time so i have no idea what is good and what is not.
