Need some help choosing a new laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Okay, hi.

I'm trying to get a new laptop as my old one is nearly dead. My budget is around $1000. I've been looking around online but a bit confused with so many choices. It'd help a lot if I could get some recommendations. It will mostly be used to work and some very light gaming. The Lenovo Legion Y530 seemed perfect for me but I'm not sure if 8 gigs of ram is the way to go in 2019.

I'm also pretty sure I won't be using the 1050ti that much. I play some light games (CSGO, League of Legends etc.) so something like the MX150 would be enough for me. Not too familiar with laptop GPUs so that's a bit confusing. My current 920M is enough for all my gaming needs. Just how bad the Intel UHD graphics cards? Thing is the 8th Gen i7 is important to and I can't seem to find one with a low-mid tier graphics card.

I would love to have a good display. I read some review about Y530 and people are saying the display is mediocre, thoughts? I'm fine with small displays. The smaller the better.

I am going to carry it around a lot so I'd prefer it if it was a bit light and thing but it's optional.

Thank you for your time.

Y530 has 3 display options - only the 250 nits panel is low sRGB. I'm using high sRGB 144Hz IPS in my Y530

 

Where are you from? Usage? No preference on weight and battery life?


Feel free to ask for recommendations if you're looking for a new lappy!

Is the brightness just the problem with Y530 screen? I always use the lowest brightness possible as I have really bad light sensitivity. 

Going to be buying from UK. I would love it if it isn't bulky. Battery life isn't that much of a concern.

Like I mentioned, the 250 nits display in the Y530 has low sRGB. The other 2 are 300 nits high sRGB, 60Hz or 144Hz

800 pounds I guess. Not sure what standard weights are but maybe something under 2kg. Weight is not THAT much of a concern.

I don't think you can get a decent model with good display and at least 1050TI
