Best School/Work laptop of 2018?

 Share

I think its good time to buy 2017/2018 laptop nowadays, because of after christmas sales.

I am using ThinkPad T430 for 2 years (before T420) what I bought for +-230$ as refurbished so I have relatively big expectations for keyboard and riggidity of device.

Problem its 3th gen i5 already starting to struggles. In school we have relatively big programming projects + I am web developer.

I also want to play some games sometimes on it (not BF5, but some mid tear games into plane or bus)

 

My question is: What is best laptop for this kind of work/fun? Touch and/or dedicated GPU will be good but not nessesary.

 

I was thinking about some Dell XPS, Surface or Razer Blade, but they are not cheap :D And idk if they are worth it.

 

I would like to buy laptop under 1000$ if its possible nowadays :D

 

Edit: If you have some ideas please swns me link to amazon because I am European citizen not from USA/Canada

Link to the matebook X pro. I will say this is by far not a valueoption, but its one of the best laptops atm (according to reviews and you dont mind a horrid webcam. Edit: and according to people ive talked to who has it)

Any preference on weight, battery life, display size and display quality? Any links of online stores in your country?

Weight doesnt matter because now I am proud owner of 4kg Thinkpad T430 :D Battery-life and display quality are not major but surely 5+ hours and IPS

The Dell XPS 13 sounds like an excellent option, but you won't get much of a computer if you stay under $1000.

Maybe look at the HP Envy 13t; the 13.3" model is available with an 8th gen i7, 8gb RAM, a 256gb NVMe SSD, over 9 hours of battery life, and a FHD touch screen for just under $1000. It also has a lot of customization options, so you can get a larger and/or 4k screen, more memory, more storage, dedicated graphics, etc. if you're willing to spend more.
