Looking for a new work and gaming laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi all new here!

 

I am in the market for a gaming & freelance machine. ( I do graphics and some light video editing ).

 

I need a laptop for both work and gaming on the side, I travel quite frequently for meetings and I need a good workstation that I can take on the go. I am looking for a machine that does not have the gaming aesthetics and good build quality. I have been looking at the Razer Blade 15 and on paper seems like a great laptop and just what I need!

 

However... I did see some videos where people have had bad experiences with their blades. (Quality Control, Customer support etc..) But then there are people who absolutely have no issues with their blades and love it!

 

Battery life is not a concern because where I usually have meetings are in businesses with wall plugs near so I can easily plug it in!

 

Any advice? No Mac options please :)

Avoid Razer laptops - bad QC+QA (thermals used to be bad but now it's decent)

 

Where are you from? Budget? Usage? Preferred max weight in kg/lbs?

I am from Malta. 2,200 euro budget. Graphic design & light video editing + some good gaming time (world of warcraft, pubg, overwatch mostly), weight to be light as possible since i will carry it allot. (This is why I really liked the Razer model as it had everything i needed)

 

15 inches is a sweet spot as i had a 17 inch with a 1070 graphic card and was to big for me since i started serious freelancing.

 

Thanks!

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.
