  1. As I already have a desktop at the university, I am more inclined towards getting a laptop. Also what you said is true, I won't need a super high spec laptop in the foreseeable future. But it's good to have some power in the laptop. There is another laptop from Asus called Asus Vivobook Gaming. It has i7 9750h, GTX 1650, 16gb ram, 512gb SSD + 32gb optane, 120hz display and is under 1000$. But there aren't many reviews regarding its performance and thermals. So I am not sure.
  2. I will get access to a desktop once the university starts to function properly. I have remote access but it just feels laggy and if there's another lockdown (even if the possibility is really slim) I will be in a difficult situation. Hence to avoid these possibilities, I want to buy a good laptop.
  3. Thanks for your help. By light gaming I mean something like PUBG Lite with medium settings, 60fps and playing probably once or twice a week. The RTX 2060 model of HP Envy 15 comes with a vapour chamber, but as GTX 1650ti does not require cooling to the extent of RTX 2060, they probably would have swapped the vapour chamber for a traditional heat pipe cooling. This might reduce its performance. This is my speculation, hence I asked the question. The softwares I have mentioned are used for 3D modelling and simulation. Hence the load on the CPU can be for an extended period of time,
  4. I am a Master's student who primarily uses software like Ansys Fluent, Solidworks, Matlab and MS Office. I also sometimes use Lightroom and Photoshop for photo editing and I do some light gaming once in a while. Does anyone have any idea regarding the thermal performance of the HP Envy 15 2020 (15-ep0010nr) having the following specifications:- Intel Core i7-10750h, Nvidia GTX 1650ti, 16GB DDR4 2933MHz Ram, 512GB PCIe NVMeM.2 SSD, Windows 10 Home, an awesome display, good battery backup (compared to gaming laptops) and under $1300. I was thinking of buying this laptop b
  5. Fair enough! Ryzen does open up a lot more options.... I'll look into those too. Thanks, cheers!
  6. The reason I am not considering Ryzen is because it's long term performance is an unknown. I will not be buying another laptop for the next 5-7 years. Hence Intel!
  7. Alright....thanks! Do you think that Dell Vostro 15 7500 or Dell Inspiron 15 7501 are viable options? Especially their thermals. https://www.dell.com/en-us/work/shop/dell-laptops-and-notebooks/new-vostro-15-7500/spd/vostro-15-7500-laptop/smv157w10pc1003 https://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-laptops/new-inspiron-15-7000-touch-laptop/spd/inspiron-15-7501-laptop/nn7501eiivh?configurationid=fa9fa832-b164-4e35-97e4-5e285d127f41 The ram can be upgraded later on for the Inspiron.
  8. Thanks for the recommendation, but I am not primarily considering AMD CPUs.
  9. Hey guys! I am a Mechanical Engineering Master's student who primarily works with software's like Ansys, Solidworks, Matlab etc. with some photo editing and casual gaming from time to time. I need help in choosing a laptop with preferred specs as follows: Windows 10, Intel Core i7/ i5 H series chip (must), 16gb ram, 512gb SSD, a solid battery backup min 5-6 hrs, atleast Nvidia GTX GPU and good cooling. My budget is around $1000-$1300. I am not considering Ryzen CPUs. Any and all suggestions regarding laptops and specs changes are welcome!
