Hi everyone! This post is a little off-topic but I think it may help others as well.
So, I will go to university next year (computer science) and I think it's time for me to get a new laptop. I don't exactly know if I need something really powerful but I want such one. My budget is ~1200 USD. Moreover, I like gaming and it would be nice if the laptop has a good GPU. So, these are my questions:
Does the weight of the laptop really matter much? I reviewed the brand new Acer Predator Helios 300 which has great specs but the laptop itself is 2.3 kgs and it's probably >3 kgs with other stuff (adapter, mouse).
Will I have some free time to play games during university time? I don't play much, but let's say I will play for 3 hours each week.
Should I avoid playing games and do other stuff instead of it? Maybe sports.
Do I still need a reasonable GPU if I don't play games?
Do you suggest having a touchscreen laptop?
Is spending $1000+ on a laptop worth it?
