Howdy! I am currently in the market for a new laptop, and my goals are to replace my aging desktop, and my current laptop which is falling apart (seriously held together by epoxy right now). I will go ahead and list what I am looking for in a laptop below. Intended usage: I will be using this laptop at work, mainly to use as my own personal computer. I want to be able to use my DAW at least as well as my desktop (which is an aging 5 year old AMD processor, so that won't be hard). I will also be programming and gaming off of this laptop, and while I know it won't be as great for gaming as XYZ desktop, I really don't spend enough time in one room at my house to warrant a desktop. Mine only gets used for an hour or less every week. As far as games go, I really don't play anything too graphically intensive, and running things at max settings isn't a must. Needs: OS: Windows 10. I do not want a mac, and will not consider a mac. Form Factor: I need it to be between 15-17 inches. Also, the thinner the better. Processor: Latest I7 generation, doesn't have to be top of the line. RAM: at least 32GB. HD Capacity: 1TB SSD or more, and the more, the better. USB: At least a few USB ports, preferably something with C and a few 3's Budget: Under $4000 USD. I know that's a lot of money, but my wife said spend up to that much, and so I am not afraid to spend it. It doesn't have to be that much, but if there's a killer laptop for 3999.99 don't exclude it just to exclude it. So if you have any suggestions please let me know. I'm looking all over right now, but chances are I will miss something that someone else may find.
