Laptop for Programming and Light Gaming

I've been looking at a laptop that can help me with my programming / university work when I can't use my desktop computer instead. My current desktop is pretty good so I don't want to spend too much money on a laptop with great specs that I won't use most of the time.


So I'm looking for a windows laptop that Isn't too expensive (~800 USD maybe) but can still play some games on low settings. Preferably not with a "Gamer" aesthetic and light weight is a bonus.


Some games I play at the moment are Warframe, Valorant, and Minecraft (modded).

how is pricing (and availability..) for HP pavilion x360? they make for a pretty competent companion device, and tend to be fairly affordable.

i'd say check HP envy x360, but that'll most likely be outside your price range.

I'd say a ThinkPad T series. Programming will be a lot nicer with a good keyboard, and a T series would give you a very good one.
