This has a 60Hz. Screen only I would recommend the Acer Predator hilos instead .

[-]r/SuggestALaptopu/The_Adviser100

This acer is definitely a better choice a much stronger GPU and a 144Hz. screen .

For under 600~750 I would recommend either this Lenovo Ideapad L340 or Asus TUF both have very similar specs and price thanks to the current BF deals on them.

And for under 1000 I would recommend either this [Omen by HP] (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07SL76NHH/?tag=bkadamos_alltest-20) or this Acer Predator Helios 300 2019 version because it comes with everything you need, great value for money, 144Hz screen which is great for fast paced games, easily upgradeable, Latest CPU and GPU, Very good heat management, and here is a more detailed review :

  • The top of the laptop plus the keyboard and palm area are metal.
  • Screen bright enough for using outside in the shade but not in direct sunlight.
  • GPU is powerful enough for LoL, Overwatch, Black Desert, Civ, and Borderlands to be played on high settings.
  • Here is benchmark for the GPU perfromance.
  • Laptop comes with Optimus to conserve battery.
  • Keyboard is great, quiet, and have a nice feel.
  • Keyboard has a numpad but narrower than the rest of the keyboard, and the arrow buttons shifted.
  • Speakers are at the bottom and kinda muffed so a headset is recommended for when you are gaming.

Assuming he still wants a laptop, consider going the AMD route, it's really worth it for decent price/performance.

If you prefer high quality visuals and higher frame rate and you're looking for bang for the buck, Radeon RX5700 all the way, it's cheaper, at least where I live, and it easily beats the 2060. For thermals, the RX5700 Red Devil handily wins.

If you are talking about this one then I don't think so, this is a hard gaming laptop, nad you are saying you are not going to play anything major so it would be waste of power.

Your budget and usage allows for several good options, you want one that is good enough for your usage or rather spend most of your budget on something more future proof ?

Amazon.com also has the Helios 300 with similar specs to this, but with a 144hz IPS panel.

Price is roughly the same, even with duties calculated.

Defiantly this Much better GPU for less money .

[-]r/SuggestALaptopu/The_Adviser100

Again this is a far better option .

[-]r/SuggestALaptopu/The_Adviser100

I think the Acer could be a good option as well as the Meck-15 .

[-]r/SuggestALaptopu/The_Adviser100

The GL75 Will have a smaller screen bezels However I think that this is a better deal than both

[-]r/SuggestALaptopu/LonerIM2

For under 800 I would go with this asus tuf mainly for the 120Hz screen, and for around 900 I would go with this acer deal which has better CPU, much better GPU, double the ram, and 144Hz screen.

[-]r/SuggestALaptopu/LonerIM2

Are you talking about this Acer if so then that is what I would go with because the Helios has better build and better heat mangement. Not sure which Zephyrus can you link it ?

[-]r/SuggestALaptopu/gummibear049

O haven't seen anything smaller with similar performance in that price range.


And it looks like the price went up on that model too, at least at Best Buy.


Here are some other's I found, albeit with a little less powerful GPU.

The laptop linked above only has 8GB RAM, but it should be upgradeable to 16GB RAM if you wanted.


Here are some other options too.


[ASUS TUF 15.6" Gaming Laptop (AMD Ryzen 7-3750H/512GB SSD/16GB RAM/NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660Ti/Win 10)] (https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/asus-tuf-15-6-gaming-laptop-amd-ryzen-7-3750h-512gb-ssd-16gb-ram-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1660ti-win-10/13620827)

I assume you are talking about this acer if so then it is not just all hype or because of the price it was already a good catch before the sale, not it is a great catch, it has good build quality and very good heat mangement.

***

However, if you want to check out other options then I would recommend this Eluktronics mech g2 because it has great combination between value for money, weight, battery life, and performance.

  • It comes with GTX 1660Ti GPU, You can check the below link to see how the GTX 1660Ti GPU (scroll down for the FPs and settings expected or ctrl+f then type the name of your game).

    https://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-1660-Ti-Laptop-Graphics-Card.386426.0.html

  • It weighs 4.5 lbs which is light like you want.
  • The outer shell is made almost entirely out of metal so it matches your needs of reliable build quality.
  • Keyboard is mechanical with RGB backlit.
  • It has 3 USB type A, Ethernet, and mic and headphone jack and on the back an HDMI, and USB type C.

  • Screen is IPS with 144Hz refresh rate, with impressively small bezels, and a professional design.

  • Lid can't be open with one hand.

  • Fans get loud under intensive work, but that is normal with every good gaming laptop.

  • Plenty of upgrade options as the chassis supports up to 32GB of ram, and 2 SSDs and 1 HDD.
  • Heat management is great, it can get hot but it gets cool again pretty quickly once the fans kick in.

  • Main con of the laptop is the trackpad, it is mediocre at best when you compare it to other laptops in the price range.

  • Battery life during normal usage is around 3.5-4.5 hours and 1.5 hour during gaming.

  • Speakers are down facing so during gaming, it is best to wear headphone since the fan gets loud during gaming as well.

I asked in the discord and was suggested this Acer Helios 300 deal off of amazon. The main reason I wanted to go with costco is because I've had an excellent experience with their support/warranty.

  • Slim, sleek.

  • the lid of the device has a matte finish on its aluminum material. On the other side, the plastic material on the rest of the chassis is retained.
  • its lid cannot be opened with a single hand. On the bright side, it is sturdy and prone to flexes. Moreover, we see an upgrade in the hinge department that leaves them a lot stronger than before.
  • The narrow-bezel design offers more real estate for amazing images. Crisp, true-to-life colors come alive on a 15.6” Full HD IPS display with Acer Color Intelligence.

  • Battery life advertised Up to 9.5-hours Battery Life and you prefer a long battery life.

[-]r/SuggestALaptopu/The_Adviser100

it's very tough to compare with the current Acer deal performance wise I think it can out perform the much more expensive GS65 with the RTX 2060 and it's not that much bulkier however it will all come down to battery life and if you care about it I would recommend the Aero 15 .

1000 - I would go for the Acer Predator Helios 300 Gaming Laptop PC. It is currently on sale for a great price and you won't get much better value for money at that price range. It is easy to upgrade, gets decent temps when gaming and has fairly future proof specs.

  • 15.6 inches Full HD 144Hz 3ms IPS Display,
  • Intel i7-9750H,
  • GTX 1660 Ti 6GB,
  • 16GB DDR4,
  • 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD,

    2000 - Eluktronics MECH-17 G1Rx would be my pick, it has a better build quality and is also much more powerful

  • NVIDIA RTX 2080
  • Intel i7-9750H
  • 17.3" 144Hz
  • 512GB NVMe SSD + 16GB RAM

    ​

    You can't compare a laptop and a desktop especially at this price range, a desktop will get better performance, thermals etc but it is not portable

It says that it's 1350$ if that's right then I would definitely recommend This Acer Instead .

This now dropped below 950 if you can get it before it sells out then it is the one to go for, better heat mangement, better build, higher refresh screen.

This dropped to under 950 so you should go for this now because they usually sell out fast :D

They are definitely not overkill, especially if you want it for the next few years. The Acer Predator Helios 300 will drop $200 in price very soon, so perfectly within budget.

[-]r/LaptopDealsu/legos45

Hi, the Acer Predator Helios 300 will drop $200 at any moment at this point... definitely the best value in your price range. Great specifications, backlit keyboard, and 144Hz display.

[-]r/LaptopDealsu/legos45

Hi, if you could extend your budget a small bit, the Acer Predator Helios 300 will drop by $200 either later today or tomorrow. Otherwise, the Lenovo Y540 at Walmart is your best choice

[-]r/LaptopDealsu/legos45

I think you might want to hold off, the Acer Predator Helios 300 will be dropping $200 later today or tomorrow. The GTX 1660 Ti performs similar to the RTX 2060

i mean, i dont know how much traveling are you doing, but monitor+case isnt gonna be friendly to carry, especially the monitor with the stand plus its size, not to mention i imagine you would had other baggages together, so it can get heavy, and messy...

i dont know what you budget is like but i would focus on laptops nevertheless, no hassle no worries, at least travel wise, stick it in the same backpack as your cloths and its done...

again, dont know you budget but here are three i found looking quickly around amazon:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07VBBKCGZ
https://www.amazon.com/MSI-GS75-Stealth-205-Gaming-i7-8750H/dp/B07QMGRCF6
https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-i7-9750H-Keyboard-PH315-52-78VL/dp/B07QXLFLXT


the first one its more mid to high end, with better screen, better processor and huge storage space, the second one its more mid end and tho similar specs, with lower storage space and more mid end processor and graphic card, and the last one its more budget friendly with smaller screen, though it seems a little bulkier built... anyway, im sure there are better options out there, bu i hope those help

Hi, the Acer Predator Helios 300 will drop another $200 for Black Friday (either later today or tomorrow). It is well within budget and has overall good specifications that should be able to handle 4K footage.

[-]r/SuggestALaptopu/ysiaD01

Hello! If you are choosing between these two specific laptops, I'd consider going with the ASUS.

- GTX 1660ti and RTX 2060 are not very different in performance. (Here is a link comparing the two GPU's.) (The RTX 2060 averages a 100% when benchmarked while the GTX 1660ti averages a 92% when benchmarked.) (You will barely notice this 8% difference.)

- You could either save the $200 or invest into a larger SSD in case you need more storage space (as that is what the ASUS lacks in comparison with the Dell.)

- Another use of the extra $200 could go towards a different laptop with a 120hz-144hz screen. This is because with internals like these (Intel i7-9750H & GTX 1660ti) it would be a waste to have a 60hz panel. (But this is just my personal opinion as for what would be more worth it.)

​

- A few laptop suggestions with a 144hz screen.

- Acer Predator Helios 300

- Lenovo Legio Y540

​

- As always, if you have any further questions. I have no issues with trying to help you make a decision. If you have any further questions, please feel free to ask.

Should I get the Legion By Lenovo Y540 15.6" Gaming Laptop, Intel Core i7-9750H, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660Ti 6GB Graphics Card, 16GB RAM, 512GB PCIe SSD, Black, 81SX00B5US

Acer Predator Helios 300 Gaming Laptop PC, 15.6 inches Full HD 144Hz 3ms IPS Display, Intel i7-9750H, GTX 1660 Ti 6GB, 16GB DDR4, 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD, Backlit Keyboard, PH315-52-78VL

I don't like the y540 cause of the plastic bulid and the fact it runs hotter than the helios 300, but I like it because it is much quiter.
And I don't like the helios 300 because of the noise level, but it runs cooler than the y540. Any suggestions please :)

Right there in the link, Amazon. It was that price on Prime Day. You can track price history here to see the lowest price. It will probably be a flash sale, limited quantity, again. I'm guessing about the price drop, but I think it's a very safe guess.

Hi, I think you should watch the Acer Predator Helios 300, it will definitely be on sale for Black Friday. You'll be able to run AAA titles at high-ultra settings 1080p with over 60 FPS, so first person shooters will run just fine.

The y540 from Walmart, or the newer version of the Helios 300 are better options. The Helios will drop to under $1000 for black Friday. It sold out pretty quickly last time.

They perform nearly identically (after tweaking y540), so just decide which look your son would prefer. Y540 is understated, the Helios is gamer. Other differences, the y540 comes with a larger SSD (512 vs 256), and the Helios comes undervolted and OC'd out-of-the-box (minor to do yourself, but be aware). I'm sure he'll be thrilled with either!

And, no, he doesn't need more than 16gb of RAM. Although, both are easily upgradeable in the future.

Lucky kid!

Hi, I think that going for strongest specifications in your price range would be a good idea for your use unless you need good battery life. The Acer Predator Helios 300 is a device to keep your eyes on, it is definitely going to be on sale for Black Friday.

I am not sure if it has DPC latency or not but usually I would recommend this Acer Predator Helios 300 2019 version because it comes with everything you need, great value for money, 144Hz screen which is great for fast paced games, easily upgradeable, Latest CPU and GPU, Very good heat management, and here is a more detailed review :

  • The top of the laptop plus the keyboard and palm area are metal.
  • Screen bright enough for using outside in the shade but not in direct sunlight.
  • GPU is powerful enough for your games to be played on high settings.
  • Here is benchmark for the GPU perfromance.
  • Laptop comes with Optimus to conserve battery.
  • Keyboard is great, quiet, and have a nice feel.
  • Keyboard has a numpad but narrower than the rest of the keyboard, and the arrow buttons shifted.
  • Speakers are at the bottom and kinda muffed so a headset is recommended for when you are gaming.

The only reason why I have been put against the Y540 is because in comparison to the Acer Predator Helios 300 is because they are similar in specs, but majority of reviews favor the Helios 300 over the Y540.

Not always, video editing use more CPU than GPU, most games use more GPU than CPU, but in most cases laptops with great CPU also come with great GPU :D in this case the 1650 GTX on the Omen is a little weak than your average gaming GPU but the great screen make up for it, if you want something with more GPU power then I would recommend this Acer Predator Helios 300 2019 version because it comes with everything you need, great value for money, 144Hz screen which is great for fast paced games, easily upgradeable, Latest CPU and GPU, Very good heat management, and here is a more detailed review :

I thought I would give you a little more in-depth review, so here it goes:

  • It’s equipped with Intel Core i7-7700HQ which is commonly used in gaming laptops, most convertibles use low powered dual core processors. The processor of capable of delivering enough power for most of work’s intensive tasks and gaming.

  • Full HD (IPS) 15.6 4K Touchscreen, which is very rare for this budget range and great for watching movies/videos. With color range of 90 % sRGB and 59% Adobe RGB it’s one of the best for this price and it’s suitable for average/mid content creators. Viewing angles are great with the IPS panel but with its glossy finish it’s not the best choice for outside usage.

  • NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 2 G is one of the most common GPUs for mid prices gaming laptops.
  • Heat management isn’t the best as the device heats up under load and CPU throttles to maintain reasonable temperatures, but it doesn’t reach the point of hurting the internal components

  • Good upgrades available, can change the SSD. It’s relatively easily upgradable which isn’t the case for most convertibles.

  • It’s good on connectivity with 2 X USB 3.0 ports and a Thunderbolt 3.

  • Battery life is from 7 to 8 hours of normal non-gaming usage.

  • Minimal bloat-ware, speakers have excellent quality but not so loud, Keyboard is excellent as you would expect from Lenovo keyboards, Trackpad aren’t much different with windows precision driver, It has fingerprint scanner which is fast and accurate, The body is sturdy and feels premium as it’s all aluminum.

Hi, it is possible that a good deal will pop up at Costco during the next few sales to take advantage of their warranty. But if not, websites like Amazon and Newegg are also very good options for purchasing a laptop. You should keep your eye on the deals on this subreddit, as well as the Acer Predator Helios 300 in particular because it almost always performs the best in its price range during sales.

Not sure if this is the best place to ask (or I should start a post) but I have a list of laptops that seem to be great deals for the specs that they're carrying. Just having a tough time deciding. They range from USD 1000~1600. There's one ASUS that could get as low as 1030 for a GTX1080 but the responses to it have not been so good. Just wanted some good advice on which ones I should get and ones I should be more concerned about. At least I hope others will find this list useful.

  • *Sager/Prostar Clevo w 9th gen i7 + RTX 2060 for $1299 - 500GB ssd, 16gb RAM, 144hz (no gsync but eh)Probably the most tempting laptop. It's seems super cheap for a RTX 2060; might be the best bang for the buck laptop out there. But some others seem good enough and a bit cheaper such as the Helios and ASUS w AMD. Anyone think the extra $300 over 1660ti laptops is worth for this? I feel like this one I could use for a good three years before changing set up. That it'll last a bit longer. Any drawbacks with Sager/Prostar from anyone else's experience?
  • Acer Helios 300 for $1088 - GTX1660ti; 144hz; 16GB DDR4; 256gb PCIe NVMe SSDMost affordable and well regarded option but I'm not sure abut the 256gb ssd. The higher storage ones cost a few hundred more but they were only a bit more expensive a few days ago. I like playing FIFA, Witcher 3, Metro, TW3K and some relatively newer games. Just not sure if the 256gb ssd is enough. Might have to constantly install and uninstall. The price-tag is really hard to resist, though. But maybe it's worth spending a bit more on the Sager with better storage and graphics card.
  • ASUS ROG Strix GL702VI for $1100 but through some discounts I can get to as low as $1039; i5-7200HQ; GTX1080; G-Sync (but 60Hz); 256gb SSD + 1TB HDDThis seems like an amazing deal. But the responses have been mixed. But a $1k laptop with gtx 1080 that will last about a year or two seem too good to be true. A bit suss but hella cheap. But again... for the lowest pricetag, a gtx 1080 that will last me a year or two.
  • ASUS w AMD Ryzen 7 + GTX 1660 ti for $1134Seems like another cheap good deal. But are ASUS laptops just not that well regarded? A lot of mixed reviews. But I like the design, the thinness. Plus it has a good entry graphics card.
  • ASUS ROG Zephyrus for $1311 - This one has a GTX 1070, 7th gen i7, 16gb ram, and 256gb ssd. Once again, ASUS isn't well received in amazon. This one's a bit more expensive than the Sager/Prostar. But I like the slim design and the GPU cards should be more or less equal, right?
  • ASUS ROG Strix Hero II for $1372 - 8th gen i7, RTX 2060, 16 GB RAM, 521gb PCIe SSD
  • Acer Helios 300 for $1384 - Only difference is bigger storage, 512 gbs this time. Same GTX 1660 ti and everything else. Considering there are cheaper laptops with seemingly better specs, maybe not worth the extra $300? Plus the others around this range seem to offer better bang for the buck.
  • Acer Helios 500 for $1400 - AMD Ryzen 7 2700, Radeon RX Vega 56; Vega 56 seems like a really good card. But should I be considering this when there are rtx 2060 n gtx 1080 laptops available for cheaper or around the same price?
  • Sager RTX 2070 for $1499 - Seems like a great deal for a 2070 card. But might still be pretty pricey for me. Yet considering some of the others, for value, this seems really good
  • Acer Triton 700 for $1502.49 - GTX 1080 w G-Sync 120Hz, 512GB SSD. Again, like teh Sager, this seems like an amazing deal for the card and monitor. Only drawback I see is the trackpad
  • ASUS ROG Zephyrus GX501 for $1549 - GTX1080 w 144Hz G-Sync, 16 GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 8th gen i7Similar price range as the previous two. I like the Zephyrus design better but that's really about it. But like the other ASUS laptops, it has mixed responses.

    Just for reference, I bought my previous laptop (now blue screened and unusable) four years ago. I wasn't (and still am not) very tech savvy so I wasn’t sure if it was a good gaming laptop back then. But these are the specs for my ASUS A501U: 6th gen i7; GTX 950M; 126gb ssd + 500gb hdd. I'm sure any one of these laptops will be great compared to my mingy 950M.

    Which one of these would you guys recommend? Thoughts on how black friday might change the price? Should I wait for BF or just get one sooner?

If you do not mind carrying a few pounds heavier laptop, I recommend you check out Acer Predator Helios 300. https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-i7-9750H-Keyboard-PH315-52-78VL/dp/B07QXLFLXT/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=helios+300&qid=1574051261&sr=8-3

It actually priced at just $1,100

​

Then again, if you plan to do heavy video / image editing, pay attention to the color accuracy. This laptop has: 300nit Brightness and 72 percentage NTSC. You don't have to pay attention to this if you are planning on having a dedicated monitor which you will be using for editing.

​

Edit2: You know what, if you don't mind spending a few hundreds dollars more, go ahead get the Aero Gigabyte. It has certified color accuracy, huge battery, and most likely lighter.

Found two laptops that you could be interested in Acer Predator Laptop

Asus Rog Strix

1st one is cheaper but has a smaller 256gb m.2 ssd drive in it but is upgradable and has a secondary storage drive available to put a hdd in for larger capacity.

The 2nd laptop is a little more expensive than your 1500 budget but provides much better GPU power. Comes with 512 m.2 sdd and another storage drive slot.

The Lenovo ThinkPad P52s would be the laptop to go for if you want decent specs and a laptop that will be able to last you for yours

Screen Size : 15 inches

Processor : Core i7-8550U

Graphics : NVIDIA Quadro P500

RAM : 32 GB

Weight : 4.3 lbs

Storage Type : 512 GB SSD

This laptop will be able to handle Engineering software, VMs, and modeling, etc. It comes with a quad-core CPU and lots of RAM which will be able to multitask well and handle intense programs without issue. While it is not a gaming laptop it will be able to manage modern titles at decent fps at low settings including overwatch). The battery life for this laptop is great as its CPU is low power which means you won't have to travel with your charger on a day to day basis. It has an internal battery as well as a removable battery which can extend the battery life up to 25+ hrs. Its port selection is good as well as it comes with a thunderbolt port so you can use an external GPU if you plan to run AAA titles in the future. If you want something more gamer oriented the Acer Predator Helios 300 would be the one (the fans will get loud when gaming and they are maxed out )

[-]r/SuggestALaptopu/LonerIM2

I would recommend the lenovo. Are you set on a price under $1000? If not I would aslo consider the Predator Helios 300 which was the single best budget laptop I ever owned.

Definitely not running rust on an integrated GPU. You'll need at least 8gb of ram and I would recommend a GTX 1060. you might be able to get by with a 1050 on potato quality. For a gaming laptop I would recommend the Acer Helios 300. Probably the single best bang-for-your-buck gaming laptop.

I am not sure, how about you get this acer and then you wouldn't have to buy a seperate screen, because most of the other lightweight laptops either have USB C or HDMI for external screen support plus the TB 3 for eGPU.

Hi, I think you keep your eye on the Acer Predator Helios 300. It is already a good value for the price, but you might be able to get it even lower during the next few sales.

Check out the Acer Predator Helios 300 aside from its 3-4 hr battery life

Screen Type: 15.6" Full HD 144Hz 3ms IPS Display,

Processor: Intel i7-9750H,

Graphics: GTX 1660 Ti 6GB,

RAM:16GB DDR4,

Storage Type: 256GB PCIe NVMe SSD

Comments: An improvement on the 2018 version as it has a much better cooling system. This laptop provides great specs for the price and is ideal for gamers who do not want to overspend. Its battery life is not that long so you will have to walk with your charger. The GPU in this laptop won’t go stale for a while as it is fully able to run new titles on max settings and get great FPS.

Hi, those laptops you listed are overall getting old. 9th generation Intel and 16xx graphics cards from NVIDIA are in your price range. The Acer Predator Helios 300 is probably the way to go, and it is very likely to drop in price for Black Friday or another sale. You get an i7-9750H processor and GTX 1660 Ti graphics card.

I have a suggestion, if you can increase your budget a bit then go with the helios 300, tech is kinda my hobby, i love tech hence i know about laptops and stuff and i searched the whole internet when i bought my laptop, no company comes close to Acer Predator helios 300 series in terms of values...

Currently it costs about 226k with shipping and you have to add duty on top of that but it will definitely go on sale this year because it does every year, make sure to get this version cause it is the latest one.. https://www.amazon.com/Acer-Predator-i7-9750H-Keyboard-PH315-52-78VL/dp/B07QXLFLXT/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=helios+300&qid=1573141680&s=electronics&sr=1-3

A similar spec laptop costs over 300k here in SL. It is absolutely worth for the money.

They usually discount it $100 bucks but then sometimes they do $200. If they do the $100 then you could get it for 207k + tax... if they do the $200 deal which is rare but they do it from time to time then you could get it for 188k + tax.

Hi, I think that the Acer Predator Helios 300 is your best option for your use, since it has the best performance plus a display that can make do considering the price range. You get an i7 processor, GTX 1660 Ti graphics card, and 1080p 15.6" 144Hz IPS display with 90%+ sRGB.

[-]r/LaptopDealsu/legos45

Hi, since you'll be heavy lifting with your laptop (as in engineering programs, gaming, editing, etc), I think you should go for a laptop with the best specifications. During Black Friday, the Acer Predator Helios 300 should get fairly close to your price range. You'll get an incredibly strong package for the price.

Some gaming laptops are ok, there are some good deals for around $1000 like this acer helios 300 with a 9750H, 1660 ti and 144hz screen. At one point I saw it on sale for $800. Obviously still not as good as a PC though.

[-]r/SuggestALaptopu/LonerIM2

I agree with the previous comment this acer is your best option, it would be worth it if you go over budget for it, or even it buy it used if that is your absolute max.

[-]r/LaptopDealsu/legos45

Hi, currently the Acer Predator Helios 300 is a tad bit over budget, but I think it will fall into your price range during Black Friday or Cyber Monday. The i7 processor and GTX 1660 Ti GPU is great for playing games.

[-]r/laptopsu/JagSKX

Based on the following benchmarks, you need at least a GTX 1660 Ti or a Radeon Rx 580x GPU to get over 144 FPS at 1080p with medium settings. If you want to get over 144 FPS using high settings at 1080p then you will need a laptop with a GTX 2070 or better which is definitely going to be out of your range.

I see people recommend the Acer Predator Helios 300 pretty regularly. It currently sells for $1,100 for the moment, but wait for a Black Friday sale.

You already have some good choices, same from the other comments, but personally I would go with this one.

[-]r/SuggestALaptopu/LonerIM2

Then I think this acer is your best option, because it has great value for money and it has everything you are asking for.

[-]r/LaptopDealsu/legos45

Hi, just to elaborate on the other poster, I don't think a device aimed at professionals will be possible in your price range. However, a device that is powerful enough for those uses is available. The Helios 300 with a GTX 1660 Ti is very likely to drop into your price range during Black Friday or another sale. The display is a 1080p 144Hz 15.6" IPS display, which is good for gaming, and acceptable for professional work (since it has 90%+ sRGB coverage).

A bit more expensive but a better built laptop is the Eluktronics Mech-15 G2 Pro

Screen Size : 15 inches

Processor : 2.6 GHz Intel Core i7

Graphics : NVIDIA GTX 1660 Ti

RAM : 16 GB

Weight : 4.5 lbs

Storage Type : 512 GB SSD

Comments: This a good gaming laptop that has a clean and professional look. It has a fast SSD, full size keyboard andthe keys have a nice feel to them. This laptop is a cut above other gaming laptops at this price range because of its cooling system. If you are a student this may not be the ideal laptop for you as its battery life is around 4 hrs so you might have to find an outlet a few times a day.
