Mom wrote me a check for $1,000 for Christmas and I have money saved up. Loooking around the 2-3 grand mark. I'm willing to spend more if it's worth it. I'm an online college student and I travel alot for work.

(Shooting for better than my desktop: 16gb RAM, 2 TB HDD, I forget my SSD size, I7 processor, Windows 7 Ultimate Ghetto Edition.)

My advice: don't come to a technology image board for advice on which toy to buy. Take it to >>>/toy/ or better yet just fuck off and decide for yourself and stop being a child.

Get a used laptop that already has the amount of ram you need. Buying ram separately will cost more. Insert a new hard drive, because that thing is most likely to die first.

Bruh, it's a tech board. I'm asking what midtier laptops people like. This much salt coming from a user with a name.

$1800 and only a 1050ti? At that price you should at least be getting a 1060.

Actually, you didn't ask any question in your post and simply blogged about your Christmas gift and what you were going to purchase.

/g/ is not your blog
/g/ is NOT your personal tech support team or personal consumer review site

Keep that in mind and never post here again, loser.

I've never bought a laptop. Always used a built deskptop and my phone for shit. I kinda expected to get fucked.

My OS was not exactly obtained in a lawful fashion.

Your reading comprehension is massively slow. Re-read then re-read again. You can tell Anon is looking for advice.

You can get a laptop with similar grunt for half the price, don't. That's 1070 tier. What's your desktop GPU?

Just a tip never take any of the advice /g/ gives on what products to buy. It's literally always whatever cheaply made pos is on sale at the moment.

The last laptop /g/ suggested me to buy literally melted itself apart.
