Looking for a (light) content creation notebook which can also handle games


I am currently looking for a notebook for content creation (mostly audio stuff) which should also not be terrible at gaming.

I know notebooks are probably not the best device for that, but the most important thing for me is portability. Here is a list of my priorities in order from most important to "least":

  • Portability (that's why it should be a notebook)
  • Fast CPU (for audio content creation)
  • 15-inch form factor
  • Simple and elegant Design ("MacBook Pro"-like design would be the best, but I couldn't find anything, so compromises must be made :/)
  • Price should not go over 1500€ or equivalent (I know, it might not be enough for the top-of-the-line stuff, but I still have to live from the little money I make)
  • Gaming-ability (ofc not modern AAA titles at ultra-settings but at least decent results, games would be GTAV, Rocketleague, ...)


So far the XMG Core 15 (https://www.mysn.de/xmg-core-gaming-laptops/xmg-core-15) has caught my eye.

Unfortunately I couldn't find any reviews so far, since this device just came out a couple weeks ago.


If anyone has some experience with this device or any other suggestions and can post these, that would be really great :)
