    Hi everyone

    I’m looking to buy my first gaming laptop. Don’t particularly want to swap out sdd or ram on laptop but can if necessary. My top budget is 1200/1300 I also have unidays discount. Any suggestions or links would be much appreciated.

    This is the laptop I am currently looking at if anyone have any personal reviews or options please leave a comment. Thanks

    Is this spec laptop a good deal for €1600 ?? I'm not sure I need a spec this high but at this price is it somewhat future proof for say 8-10 yrs ?

    I know I can pick up a lesser spec'd gaming laptop for about €1000 - €1200 but it would be at most an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H, 512GB SSD, 8 GB Ram, 120hz Screen & Nvidia RTX 3060. Is the below worth the extra investment ?
