New Laptop

I'm going to be moving around a lot over the next year so I'm looking to get a laptop. I really love desktops and as soon as I'm stable again I'll get another.

 

Looking at a laptop with:
i7-6700HQ (2.6 GHz)
GTX 960M (2 GB GDDR5)
16GB DDR4

17.3" display
Price: $1,200

Trying to keep the price on the low-side while still being able to work on OSBot, hacking, light gaming, etc. Are these decent specs for a laptop?

 

Update 1: Found same laptop but with 5700HQ and DDR3L for $200, looks convincing.

Yeah thats actually pretty good for that price, especially with DDR 4 RAM, and a decent graphics chip like that one.

 

heres my current desktop build: https://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=wish_lists&wlcId=318271&action=wish_lists

 

Only cost a few hundred extra (1400 euro) as well.

Think I can knock off a few hundred and still get about the same performance?

Well if you go for a previous generation CPU with DDR3 RAM you should get cheaper options, or go for a previous generation CPU and upgrade the graphics card, also 8GB's of RAM instead of 16GB could decrease the price as well, since the tasks you want to do don't require that much RAM anyway. Performance wise; maybe it's a 5-10% performance loss, I'm not completely sure but I think you won't suffer from that at all.

Price seems fair for a laptop with those specs.

the 16G DDR4 probs drives the price up, but it's totally worth it.

 

If it's possible to add an SSD in it, you should do it.

Speeds up your laptop by a ton ^^

Until he decides to play rust again, right after they change something which makes the game unstable as shit

 

Rust always was a bit unstable in my opinion :s (except the legacy mode)

but fun game though!

960 Will run any game I see you playing perfectly fine, RAM is fine, CPU is fine, the price is the price because it's a laptop. Overall you should be ok with it.

 

960M != 960 sadly sad.png

Edit: Whether it meets the demands you need is another story. Its a good video card for a laptop, just pointing out that "M" is a sob.

It's a laptop, the specs are going to be crap. I don't want a laptop but it's my only option.
