Total budget and country of purchase: My budget is 1000€ (~1.100$). I can possibly get to 1500€, but it will have to make a bid difference and be a total VFM. I'm from EU, Greece specifically. (Which means I cannot order from Wallmart and Bestbuy afaik, from a few sellers of Amazon too, while NewEgg will likely have a high VAT-Shipping price).
Do you prefer a 2 in 1 form factor, good battery life or best specifications for the money? Ideally I'd like it to have a proper battery life. I'm also concerned about its "longevity", which I guess it has to do with proper cooling system, build quality and sturdiness.
How important is weight and thinness to you? Not that important.
Do you have a preferred screen size? Yes, 15.6".
Are you doing any CAD/video editing/photo editing/gaming? List which programs/games you desire to run. I will mostly use the laptop for my college, I'm studying physics, so I don't think that there will be a program that has high requirements. I think I will mostly using programs like Wolfram, Origin etc. I'm also starting getting into programming so that would be an activity too. A good keyboard will be a big plus for me (I think one of those Eluktronics mechanical is the best regarding this?). Second most important aspect will be gaming, I'm mostly into online games (MMORPGs) and generally I don't mind setting graphics to minimum in order to get a fluid and lagless experience.
If you're gaming, do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want? As I said I'm mostly into MMORPGs, but not into ones that are heavily graphics based (at the moment a tleast) I don't like/play BlackDesertOnline for example. I mostly care for the gameplay/features/experience and not the graphics. I love some indie 2D ones for instance. Although there are some MMOs that will release in the future and are kinda requiring afaik (New World, Magic the gathering MMO- those 2 just got more info revealed, Ashes of Creation etc). Also I'd like to be able to play games like GTA V, AS:O etc or Cyberpunk when it gets released. I don't really care for 4k high HD ultra max-graphics, I just want a smooth and pleasant experience-gameplay.
From my reaserch I've concluded to these options: Eluktronics Mech 15, MSI GS65, Dell G5 and Aero 15. But looking for opinions or any available deals!
Thank you for reading, any input is appreciated!
