Laptop or Desktop?
My budget for the new computer is:
Max 1300 euros, but preferably around 1000-1100.
What are the primary uses for this computer?
Standard schoolwork, running multiple virtual machines (3-4), watching movies and gaming.
What software do you intend on using on the computer?
Virtualbox, Steam, Fairly new FPS games, office and packet tracer.
Location for online shopping/shipment/prices?
I live in the Netherlands.
Do you need peripherals? OS?
Any particular reason why you are upgrading?
Old Lenovo Y50 (2014) Screen is damaged.
My school has as recommendation that I have 16gb RAM, a big harddisk with good speed and an I7. (Or something comparable.) I am also looking for good build quality since it's going to go through much abuse in my bag and at school, a nice IPS screen and good speakers.
I would like for it to not look too "gamer". And have an RJ45 network port. (But this is not essential since I can also use an adapter.) It would also be nice if it is lighter and thinner than my old Lenovo, but I could live with it not being that. Battery life isn't that important. It's nice to have good battery life, but I was always tethered to the wall with my old one, so I'm not that bothered.
A good GPU would be great, but I'm already satisfied with my 960M. So anything around that or better is good.
I myself am looking at something like this: https://tweakers.net/pricewatch/855713/hp-pavilion-power-15-cb040nd/specificaties/
Thanks in advance.
