Looking for some BF recommendations on a laptop from all the tech and deal heads here. Let 'er rip!


- PLATFORM: Windows

- BUDGET: around $800. Could go to $1000 if there's some *insane* deal.

- INTENDED USE: Primarily for business school (grad level). Some database querying and programming involved (may need to pump up the RAM for this). Would also like to do some moderate gaming, moderate image editing/Photoshop work, and light video editing (gopro vids). Gaming-wise, would like to play new/modern games but not a huge graphics-file (don't need to max out graphics)

- SCREEN SIZE: preferably 15", could do 13" if there's a very good reason to do so. Not over 15".

- TOUCHSCREEN: Not a priority at all. But don't dislike them either.

- WEIGHT: around 3.8 lbs or less would be nice. Don't need an ultraportable, but don't want anything *too* heavy since I'll be taking it to school.

- SIZE: middle of the road. Definitely not big and bulky, but don't need ultraportable (although I'll take one if there's a really good deal)

- BATTERY LIFE: Average to great

- KEYBOARD: this is important to me. Would like keys that are moderately raised from surface of the laptop (i.e. not almost flush with it)

- # OF PORTS: would like a decent # (not like a macbook air). VGA, HDMI, at least 1x USB-C.

I am buying the dell g5 for 1100 dollars. RTX2060 gives me years where it wont go obsolete on me. Upgrading to 32gb of ram as well.
