    I don't recommend a Dell XPS. I use both the desktop and the laptop versions, purchased in 2018. The desktop still works fine, but the laptop constantly fails.

    What do you use it for? I have one too that I got around the same time but only really seems to struggle with virtualization and high-workload programs…

    It has crashed on multiple separate occasions with Blender, Reaper, Photoshop and Illustrator. That being said, it was used as a daily driver for years before it was mine- though subject to the same complaints.

    Thanks again, everyone. My computer literally can't handle having this many tabs open, so I suppose that's a sign.

    To try and narrow things down further, I'd like to ask some questions about brands. Lenovo, MSI and ASUS have been showing up a lot - are they bad or good? Also Trion.

    What's better, i7 or Ryzen 7? And is it always better to go for a laptop with i7 over i5?

    When the Engineer opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth program say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Open Source Software, and Entropy was following close behind him.

    i7 is better performance, i5 is cheaper. Ryzen 7 is good for multicore, so there's stuff it's worse for. MSI is a good gaming brand.
    You want ram.

    Lenovo, MSI, Asus, Gigabyte are all known and decent brands, though Lenovo and Asus are the bigger ones across the stuff you've listed, I've never seen Trion.

    they're similar enough, it goes i3> i5 > i7 > i9, Ryzen is same that higher is better. That said, everything from a modern i3 to i9/ or Ryzens will perform the same in daily tasks, generally, the only real difference is once you actually render that video you were trying to edit.

    Don't bother too much with going as high as you can for a laptop, since most laptops are constrained by how much they can cool rather than the chips inside them. There have been cases where an i7 was competitive with an i9(from the same year) simply because it wasn't easily able to cool it, and you're not going to get incredible cooling under $2000. Just go with as good as your budget allows, while making sure you have at least 16gb of ram.

    Νo offense meant but if you use a laptop for 3D modelling and/or high definition rendering, you kind of have it coming.

    unless you know how someone does and can do their shit exactly, there's no point judging like that.

    I'm exhausted and my brain is melting. I've narrowed it down to these options, which laptop do I want
    1. Razer Blade 15 (i7 10750H/16GB/GTX 1660Ti/1TB SSD)
    2. ASUS 15.6" Vivobook 15 D1502YA-NJ091W 15.6in FHD R7-7730U 16GB 1TB
    3. MSI Modern 14" FHD Intel Core i7 1355U CPU 1TB SSD 16GB RAM Win11
    4. Lenovo IdeaPad Flex 5 14" Ryzen 7 5700U 16GB RAM 512GB SSD
    5. XPG Xenia Xe 15.6" 16 RAM 1TB i7 11th Gen
    6. MSI GF63 Thin 11UC-692US 15.6” i7 11 Gen 512GB SSD, 16GB DDR4, GeForce RTX 3050
    7. MSI GF65 Thin 10UE 15.6" i5-10500H 32GB DDR4 2TB SSD NVIDIA RTX 3060
    8. OMEN By Hp 15 Gaming laptop (Core i7 9750H/16GB/RTX 2060/1TB SSD/FHD IPS)
    9. MSI Katana GF76 11UD-001 17.3" (512GB SSD, 16GB RAM, i7-11800H
    10. HP 15s-eq2230AU 15.6" 16GB/512GB [Ryzen 7]
    11. MSI Modern 15 B13M 15.6" 5-1335U/16GB RAM/1TB SSD

    I like the look of the top three in particular, especially the razer blade, but I'm paranoid about making a wrong choice, or that there's something I'm missing.

    Kinoshita sensei just posted this, my exhaustion is gone and my brain is solid once again. Still don't know which laptop to get, but that's a problem for tomorrow. The power of the
    waifu
    secular icon
    is amazing!

    That generation of intel cpus on the Razer is pretty horrid for mobile use, especially against ones 2 years newer. 2, 3, 6, 9, and 11 are good enough(2 has kind of a shitty webcam if you care about that, speaking from experience from a relative). I'm assuming you'd like something that looks closer to a macbook with these choices, so that's understandable.

    6, 7, and 9 are particularly good value against 1, but I'd lean towards 6 on there.

    2, 3, and 11 have the most modern stuff, and are more likely to have good battery life if you wanted that too.

    I took the laptop conversation to DMs, just so no one thinks I'm being a rude scallywag. Anyway, this is how I feel about most of my favorite characters, but especially A Certain Someone. There's nothing quite like the scent of failure...

    Speaking of, the whole time I was living in Brisbane alone, I thought my dad was just being an old man whenever he refused to come visit, citing how the change in weather disagrees with him. Well, until I began house hunting, I hadn't gone back during the middle of the day before, so I was shocked to discover he was telling the truth - it starts getting noticeably warmer when you're 20 minutes out from [here], and by the time you're in Brisbane it's hot and humid. I look forward to getting used to it again.
