So I already have a beast setup as some of you may have seen here:

Setup

[ Register or Signin to view external links. ]


I'm looking for something I can take with me on business trips. I travel often. I usually take trains as I'm not a fan of flying so just from where I live in St. Louis Missouri, To Chicago, Its about a 5 Hour train ride via Amtrak. I just need something I can do some light gaming and my basic to intermediate graphic design work. I just saw this [ Register or Signin to view external links. ] on Linus Tech Tips and it seems so be able to Handle GTA On High settings at 75 FPS. I'm not by any means looking for a 4k Gaming laptop, Just something to help pass time and can match Console graphics.

What's your budget?

Gaming laptops are more expensive (which I'm sure you already know) so I wouldn't expect desktop graphics for the same price.

I see the price of the laptop you linked is around $800 with a 960m

Here is an i7 1050 for just under $1k - What do you think? [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

While I really don't have a budget, I do want to keep it as cheap as possible while still being about to pack a punch. $800 Is where I really wanna stay around as ill probably only use it a few days out of the month

You were slightly off on the choice, the one i linked is the LTT one. I got to mess around with it the other day, it is worth it either way they are both good choices.

Fairly priced, and the reviews on it are good for what it is.
