private use

1.1. Do you want to use the laptop primarily mobile or stationary? How mobile should the laptop be? Should it be a 2-in-1 notebook/convertible?
The laptop is 95% used at home and is an addition to a powerful stationary PC. Therefore, it is almost always operated without an additional monitor, etc. without convertible

1.2. If you want to play games: what games? What level of detail?

2. How big should the screen be? Do you want a touch screen or a particularly high display quality?
15-inch matte screen. A good shine would be important. No touch screen.

Without games, only with Office applications or YouTube 8h.

No “gamer” look with colorful logos on the casing. It shouldn’t feel cheap.

Not too heavy (<= 2.4kg)

Nice to have:
