(Im from australia so if suggestions are made could you please use links from there . Thanks) Hey guys, so I'm in a dilemma. I don't want to spend 3k on a laptop but its looking to be that way.

 

I want a laptop that can do low level vr development, c++ encoding, unity development. And also from time to time play some games(I don't mind play mid low settings and play a lot of games from 2015 and before)

 

Can someone please help me to figure out laptop suggestions?

problem is, I have no info on online stores in AU

 

Budget? Need Quadro? Any preference on weight and battery life?

Hey sorry, so some stores that might include some of the laptops you recommend are msy, pc case gear, mwave, Harvey Norman, good guys, jb hi fi.

 

No quadro is needed, most of the stuff I do is comparable to what a gamer needs but more cores I've heard is better(and I've noticed can be better but a 4 core minimum is good)

 

My budget is ideally 2k Australian and I can go up to 3k but I'd rather not. That roughly translates into 1500-2300k usd.

 

I'll mainly be using the laptop before I go to bed or during uni or whenever I'm out so a nice battery is good, so at least 6 hours would be good. With weight, id rather it not be some huge bulky piece of kit. And id rather something a bit more slim. Um if you need any more of the details just reply back?

As long as it has 300 nits 72% NTSC display or 144Hz display, the colour quality is good

 

Since both models don't have reviews yet (actually there is, the thermal performance is questionable), I suggest you to wait for reviews first
