I travel a lot for a job change, but I always want to be able to gamble. I have to partially connect the device to an LTE / 5G router when on the go. That is not optimal, but sadly there is no other way. I have yet to read which devices are suitable.
Thanks in advance for your help with the laptop.
1. What do you want to use your laptop for? Commercial or private use?
I only use the laptop privately.
1.1. Do you want to use primarily mobile or stationary laptop? How mobile should the laptop be? Should it be a 2-in-1 laptop / convertible?
Mobile only. I have a stationary desktop PC.
1.2. If you want to play: what games? What level of detail?
Warzone, Battlefield, Diablo, New World and occasionally new games coming out. (most recently Resident Evil and Werewolf).
1.3. Music / Image / Video Editing or CAD – Which Software? Professional or hobby?
2. How big should the screen be? Would you like a touch screen or a particularly high quality of display?
No touch screen. But it should be good quality, because I also want to use the device for Netflix / Disney + (the usual streaming services).
3. How long should the battery last?
I almost always have a power source. But it should last three to four hours.
4. What operating system do you want to use? Is there a license? Should the laptop already have an operating system pre-installed? Do you get Windows from college?
An operating system must be included.
5. Do you have any wishes regarding design, quality of workmanship, material, or color?
As compact as possible and well done.
6. Are there other special requirements that were not consulted? Big hard drive? Numeric keyboard? Keyboard backlight? Pen holder? Docking via USB-C / Thunderbolt 3? CD / DVD drive? Discounts (educational)? Service and warranty? Maintenance options? SD card reader?
I think a 1TB hard drive and 32GB RAM should be fine. Otherwise, there are no special requirements.
7. How much money are you willing to spend? Is a used purchase an option?
I have budgeted 2000.00 euros.
So far the Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16 (AMD)
and the Alienware X15 R1 (I get good discounts at Dell through my employer; also for me as a private person)
But I am also happy to be open to other suggestions.
