Which Laptop Should I Buy? Macbook15 Inch 2018, Razer Blade 15, or Any Other Thin Laptop

I am having trouble deciding which laptop to buy. Price isn’t a problem. I just want decent battery life on the go with good performance. I will mainly use it for web browsing with video editing at sometimes and maybe waiting around somewhere I will play some games. Which one should I get?

Well the only instance where the MacBook would be better than something else is if you are using FinalCut Pro or iMove to edit, or want battery life as the priority. Its Graphics are enough for light gaming at 1080p or an equivalent 16:10 res. 

 

I would personally go for the MacBook Pro, if you can get a student discount you can save about $300

This config is really solid imo, but its $2,800 retail.

If you really need macOS, your choice is obvious

 

If not, may I know your:

Location?

Preferred max weight?

Preferred minimum battery life?

I am located in the US in a hot climate, and I prefer the laptop to be under five pounds and the battery has to last at least eight hours.
