Background

I got good grades (in my parents view, considering I have Asian parents since I live in Hong Kong), and they want to get me a new computer. However, this time, they aren't going to spoonfeed me good specifications.

 

What I need help with

I never explored into what a good spec is, so I'm wondering what is. For anyone wondering, I'm getting a laptop. Windows, of course. My dad asked me to look into what's a good one, but I'm stuck.

I'm not like a hardware guy but do definitely get a good dedicated GPU/graphics card if you want to play graphics intensive games smoothly, are working with graphics-related things (3d rendering, animation, etc), or just training deep learning models (from experience).

@MainDabagain depends on what you're going to use it for
some bare minimum for a half-decent laptop
make sure its a ryzen 5/i5 or better
it must at least have a SSD
try to get more than 8 gb of ram
(considering a lot of laptops still come with 8 gb only, u prob have to upgrade it yourself)

if your budget is under 800 usds, you will probably get a very mediocre pc for use at home. (probably intel Xe graphics, 8 gigs of ram, 500 gb ssd, intel i5 7-10th gen?)

I have no idea what your budget is, so ill just list laptops with good specs ranging in price. 

On Newegg:

Acer Nitro 5 - AN515-45-R0FN
https://www.newegg.com/shale-black-acer-nitro-5-an515-45-r0fn-gaming-entertainment/p/N82E16834360083?Item=N82E16834360083

This laptop has a 144hz 1080p display paired with an RTX 3050Ti. It's not the best card you can buy in a laptop, but it is the most affordable in the GPU shortage. The CPU is a 6 core Ryzen 5 5600h running at 3.30 GHz(4.20 GHz boost) 8Gb of DDR4 3200mhz ram and a 512GB SSD to top it off.

The ram and the SSD are lacking IMO, but for 900$, it's a good bundle for the price as long as you aren't playing games at max 100% of the time. 

I might add more laptops in here later, but id rather not dig around specs and comparisons for another hour rn. 

Alienware R7 Case, Mobo & 850W PSU, 1TB Crucial MX200 SSD & 1TB Kingston SUV500 &

  2TB Hitachi 7.2k RPM & GTX 1060 6GB
I7 8700K @3.7Ghz, 2x 8GB Samsung @2666Mhz
