I’m still searching for a creator laptop.  I want there to be at least 128gb SSD with a 1TB HDD, 16gb of RAM,  at least a GeForce GTX 1660 ti,  Windows 10 Pro if possible and a 15.6” display.  I plan on spending no more than $1,800 or less hopefully.

 

I have several ideas:

Razer Blade 15 Base Model https://www.razer.com/gaming-laptops/razer-blade/shop. Possible the 144Hz version-https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07X4C1PKX/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_k8JhEb1J1N4ZV. 

 

Lenovo Legion Y540 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VT4RJ51/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_y9JhEbK9659JG

 

Acre Predator Helios 300 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07QXLFLXT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_j-JhEbTC71RPH

 

MSI GS65 Stealth https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07ZX1QSGK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_1-JhEbCG56GGF

Any help or opinions would be much appreciated!! Thank you!

I’m in the United States.  I want it to be portable so I can take to school and other places but also powerful.  Battery life isn’t the biggest concern because I’ll almost always have a outlet.  I also want it to last for at least 4 years.

In terms of mostly performance but reliable in the long run.

So I may be in the minority here, but I have had a Dell XPS 9570 15 going on 2 years now, and I have loved it ever since. The newer XPS line is great for creators IMO!

Preferred max weight in kg/lbs? Also, fine without HDD? (eg 1TB SSD)

No more than 7-8 lbs I guess

7-8 lbs isn't that portable IMO, are you sure with this max weight? Or prefer as low as possible?

Thanks for the reply but I’m not the biggest fan of the Dell XPS 15.  Thanks for the advice!
