Alright lads, I'm looking for a new laptop as my current one is dying on its arse. Basically I'm looking for something lightweight and small since I travel a lot, but something I can still run some games on in my downtime. I'm in the US at the moment too so my maximum price range is $1200, so I was thinking of picking up the new Alienware 13, which for $1200 gets me this:
Intel® Core™ i5-6300HQ
Windows 10 Home 64bit English
8GB DDR4 at 2133MHz
NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 with 6GB GDDR5
Apparently it's VR ready too but I'm not too bothered about that. For roughly the same price I can get a slight older model but the specs are: Core i7 6500U (2.50 GHz) 16 GB Memory 256 GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 2 GB GDDR5
I figure I might as well go for the newer one but if I could find something decent for cheaper that'd be great. I've looked around for others but haven't found much though, so I'm just wondering if anyone can give their input on this or give me some ideas on other models. The main focus I suppose is going to be gaming, and I figure anything that can run some decent games will allow me to do a little bit of video editing and run Office too, as well as streaming the occasional movie.
