Lightweight but somewhat powerful

Recommended Posts

I don't need a powerhouse laptop running a xeon rtx 2080 ti... but I would like a decent laptop for work, light gaming when I am not home, portable... unlike my current 8 year old msi that weighs 10 pounds and is bulky. I was looking at the msi prestige, the razer (thanks to ltt videos naturally) or do I just go towards a dell or hp. I was thinking of putting 1500 on a budget.. but I have been out of the laptop game for so long i could use some direction.

When you say gaming, what titles are you going to be playing? A 10 year old online MMO or AAA titles?

I only play runescape, both osrs and rs3 now a days to just mess around. If I play any other titles it will be on my desktop. But usually cant get too involved when not at home. Some slight editing, website development, then the basic word, pdf and excel of course. Rather spend the money and get something a little more than I need to not run into issues and just be able to go with it.

Something with a 1650 and an i5 would probably be fine.

 

I have two Lenovo laptops that have been solid since I bought them.  One is a cheap ultrabook (i3 4030u) from ~2014, the other is a Legion Y520 (i5 7300HQ/1050 Ti).

I have newer Lenovo laptops and have used a newer Thinkpad.  The new Thinkpads are just another generic laptop, nothing like the quality they had when IBM was still making them.
