Looking for a Laptop for gaming/programming

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am currently selling my razer blade stealth 2018 model as it was not that good for gaming and heavy use of 3D editing software and am looking for a laptop that can handle just that.

 

For programs i run:

Cygwin

Visual studios

Eagle

Autocad

creo

Lightroom

 

Requirements:

Small and compact

Smaller bezels 

Handle your typical FPS games

Decent battery life

GOOD LOOKING (least priority)

 

Budget is 3k

Where are you from? 3k in what currency? Need Quadro? Preferred max weight in kg/lbs and min battery life in hours?

What do you mean about no links? Doesn't Singapore have Lazada? 

Lazada overprices their items

Okay then if so could you recommend between the Razer Blade 15, MSI GS65, Asus Zephyrus S or Gigabyte Aero 15

Skip the Razer. I've read to many bad things on them including Linus Tech Tips.

Asus Zephyrus S

This if you don't mind poor battery life. Keep in mind that it's very hard to open up the laptop and be aware of Asus poor QC and warranty
