Brand new laptop for friend <$1100 AUD


Recommended Posts


  • Total budget (in local currency) and country of purchase. Please do not use USD unless purchasing in the US:

$1000 AUD, Australia (possibly $1100 if it's really worth)

  • Are you open to refurbs/used?

No, his parents are buying it for "school" so it has to be brand new

  • How would you prioritize form factor (ultrabook, 2-in-1, etc.), build quality, performance, and battery life?

    Not as important as if it can run games

  • How important is weight and thinness to you?

No - Him

  • Do you have a preferred screen size? If indifferent, put N/A.


  • Are you doing any CAD/video editing/photo editing/gaming? List which programs/games you desire to run.

Gaming, Team Fortress 2, CSGO, Rainbow six siege, Doom, etc.

  • If you're gaming, do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want?

    Anything above 60fps+ on high settings is good

  • Any specific requirements such as good keyboard, reliable build quality, touch-screen, finger-print reader, optical drive or good input devices (keyboard/touchpad)?

    Good build quality for sure, and can last a fair length while gaming battery wise
