lg gram doesnt have a gpu

razer blade is out of my budget

and i am not sure about the customer service of huawei

the reason why i am not sure with the xps 15 is thermal throttling

Any of the mentioned laptops above are good if you want the battery life.

You won't be training models locally (be better using AWS), and even if you do, you leave simulations running overnight on a plugged-in computer.

Making use of the GPU in deep learning libraries like tensorflow, keras, or pytorch at a budget of $1500 wouldn't make much of a difference.

So I guess my recommendation will be Lenovo P series (P1 for Quadro P2000 or P52s for Quadro P500) - the quadros for the extra push for data preprocessing, not necessarily for deep learning. Excellent battery life too.

I would also recommend the Razer blade, they'll likely have previous gen for around that price for Black Friday or random refurb sales.

Kindly provide more info:

Where are you from?

Min how many hours of battery life?

Max weight preferred?

Any other special requirements?

1. Razer laptops have trash quality too. The latest Blade 15 doesn't have improvements, sadly

2. Expect Xiaomi like service which can be quite troublesome since it's located in China

3. Just don't look at XPS 15 unless you want the iGPU model or, you got some really great deal and have a tight budget. Too many issues

P1's battery isnt as good

Battery life in P1 is decent, just not for the highest end spec+UHD panel

Give your preferences beyond the three you listed.  Maximum weight? Screensize requirement? Storage options?

I don't think that exists, for that price what you can get is:

A decent gaming laptop, no battery life.

Decent battery life, crap*y gaming performance thanks to thermals 

 

What I can think is a thinkpad 480 maybe? with an mx150.

Nothing compared to a 1050 but whatever..

 

Unless you choose to buy a Thunderbolt 3 capable laptop with an eGPU

Well, Thinkpad P1, Thinkpad X1 Extreme, Macbook Pro 15' are usually considered as the contender for xps 15.

Alright so i am a gradute student in san jose, california and looking to buy a laptop for deep learning

Requirements

CPu-i7

GPU

Good Battery life

RAM - 8 or more

screen size and weight do not really matter

i have been searching for a while now and the best one that i've found is xps 15

it costs me around $1400 with i7, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Max-Q, 97W battery, 8gb ram.

The only downside to xps 15 is thermal throttling

do you have any suggestions as to why i should and shouldnt buy a xps 15 with the above mentioned specs.

 @GoldenLag  - screensize doesnt matter but 14" is preffered

 @zhubaohi  - P1's battery life isnt as good as xps 15's, thinkpad x1's extreme's benchmarks scores are lower than xps' and i am looking for a windows laptop so no macbooks

@PineyCreek 

@Lukyp  - the i7 version of t480 starts at $2100

@GeneXiS_X - I am from india

You shouldn't if you don't need a powerhouse of a laptop. Otherwise, you absolutely should. It's the best all around laptop I've yet used.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

@fasauceomei need a laptop with those specs but the only issue with xps 15 is thermal throttling

you think i should go for it or keep looking for laptops?

you have any suggestions for any other laptops?

The thermal throttling is mainly an issue on the Vega model, the one with the 1050 ti is great. (the Vega model is actually great too, I've used both.) The thermal issues are minimal, not nearly on the level of the macbook.

I have a hard time answering this because the XPS15 is a great laptop. A close friend owns the new XPS 15 with the 4k touchscreen, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and the 1050Ti and he has had zero complaints.

 

I own the 2017 XPS13 and I use this laptop daily, I absolutely love it. I only ever had one issue where after the battery died on reboot the system boots before the SSD receives power so it would just send me into bios. The fix was setting a 2 second boot delay on power up and since then I have been issue free, there are only 2 other laptops I would personally 'consider' over this XPS. I think you will be very happy with it.

Even though many users would disagree, I just bought a surface laptop 2, and I love it! The keyboard is fantastic, the screen is stunning, and the fit, finish and overall polish are outstanding. I am not the biggest Apple fan, as I would assume most users on this forum are, But after having this notebook for a week I finally get it, I wasn't too happy spending $1299 on an i5 laptop with 256gb of storage, but it is swift, and just feels fast in everything that I would use a notebook for. The downsides are; No expansion, AWFUL I/O with no USB C and only one USB port, and Apple-like prices with similar performance. Luckily I was willing to spend a little bit more for a great screen and battery life. I was also looking at a Lenovo Thinkpad because I like the retro style and expandability, also the Thinkpad's keyboard was AMAZING IMO, maybe even better than the surface laptop, but the 3:2 IPS screen on the surface book was the tipping point, it is almost the perfect laptop, and gets a HUGE recommendation from me! But sadly it doesn't have dedicated graphics, so it may not work for your tasks.
