Programming laptop for college

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

First off: Not buying for at least a few months, if not wait a year or two

I want a laptop for college around 1200 dollars. I want something with a good keyboard, and preferably a decent screen for movie watching.

 

I've been eyeing the windows laptop 2 (I don't want the pro, don't like the kickstand). I really like the alcantara and look.

The LG gram looks nice and is light.

I know a lot of people like the blade stealth.

I hear that thinkpads are really popular and have great keyboards.

Out of those, or maybe another, what should I go for?


i5-8600k, MSI Z370-A Pro, 2x 8GB DDR4-3k, MSI Gaming X 1060, NZXT S340, 2TB HDD, 750w Corsair PSU, AOC 2775 OC'd to 80Hz and CFG73 at 144hz

Yeah, didnt unbox therapy just get one? Theyre great laptops I just don't really like how they look, which isn't a huge factor, but definitely is one

The Lenovo X1 Carbon is a great computer, although for me personally for school I use the HP spectre x360 13", the screen is beautiful and the keyboard is probably among the best keyboards I've ever used on a laptop (I can't speak for the Lenovo). And the laptop even comes in a 15" option as well. And the Spectre is probably one of the best looking Windows laptops on the market IMO.
