Hello there,

 

Im looking for a laptop that can get me through College. 
The laptop has to be 3D modeling capable with triple A gaming on the side.
 

Usage:

-3D modeling,

-triple A gaming,

-taking notes,

-programming,

-watching movies

 

My budget is around €2500 incl. VAT and shipping fees.

The laptop store has to support shipping to Slovenia.

The sleeker the look the better.

 

Below are the specifications im looking for.

-GPU: GTX 1060 6 GB or better

-CPU: i7 8750H with 6 cores or better

-IO: 2x USB type-A port, Ethernet port

-Storage: 1x m.2 Samsung 970 EVO 256GB or better + 2,5" storage bay

-RAM: 8GB (upgradeable), 16GB(non upgradeable)

-Screen: 15,6" or better, 75Hz or better,  sRGB - is not that important
-Battery: 3 hours of note taking, 1 hour with gaming 
-Keyboard: EN-US international layout + backlight

-Weight: 3kg (6,61 lbs - max weight)

-OS: None - Trial version

 

Laptops I was looking at so far:

-ROG Zephyrus S Thin and Portable (2019)

Would probably recommend having a 1250€ ultrabook with some capability and then a 1250€ desktop to do the heavier tasks on.

You don't need a thin and light


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

The laptop only needs some 3D modeling capability since I already own a capable desktop back home. 

The problem is that I will only have access to it over the weekend.

I recommend one of these:

 

Custom Built ASUS ROG Zephyrus S GX502GW-XB76 - 15.6" FHD 240Hz - i7-9750H - RTX 2070

Custom Built MSI GE75 9SF Raider-286 - 17.3" Thin Bezel FHD 144Hz - i7-9750H - RTX 2070

EVOC High Performance Systems P750TM1-G - 15.6" FHD 144Hz / QFHD 60Hz - i5-9600K / i7-9700K / i9-9900K - GTX 1060 / 1070 / 1080

Custom Built Dell G7 15 7590 - 15.6" FHD 144Hz / FHD 240Hz - i7-9750H - RTX 2060 / 2070 Max-Q / 2080 Max-Q - 60WHr Battery

 

HIDevolution ships internationally and have great quality control so you get a laptop that works great out of the box as they do rigorous stress testing before shipping out a laptop.

In the laptop configurator, make sure to choose "Thermal Grizzly Conductonaut + Fujipoly Extreme Thermal pads" for the best cooling. That small upgrade on its own reduces temps by 15C to ensure the laptop doesn't overheat or thermal throttle.,

 

I live in Dubai and always order my laptops from them for years as all the laptops that I purchased with them worked perfectly.
