Suggestions for RTX 3060 laptops

Hello all,

I'm looking to upgrade from my current laptop with a 1050 Ti and I believe an 8th gen i5 to something with around a 3060 mobile level of performance. I'll mostly be using it for gaming with a bit of work sometimes as it would be my only computer. And I do mostly play simulation style games so I need a decent CPU as well.

 

I'd like to aim for around $1000, though I'd be willing to go up to about $1400. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

As rule of thumb, look for min of 8C/16T beasts like the R7 5800H or the beastly i7 12700H, combined with 2x 8GB DDR4 RAM and the RTX 3060 would yield pretty damn good performance. I have a Legion 5 Pro with the R7 5800H + RTX 3070 and this lappy handles all the games I've thrown at it with ease, Metro Exodus PC Enhanced needed DLSS to run smoothly, but this was with Ultra setting + RT enabled.

I'm in the US. East Coast if that matters.

Look for deals on Legion 5/5i or 5/5i Pro (2021 or 2022), might be able to get 3070/70Ti
