I've started doing some initial shopping, looking at higher end gaming laptops to use with Vegas. Trying to avoid my last laptop purchase mistake of buying a laptop with a low-end GPU and short on cooling. Leaning towards Intel Processor with Nvidia GPU options which I know are more expensive than the AMD offerings, but experience has shown me the Intel/Nvidia combo just tends to be more compatible with most programs.
Would also like to know what would be a recommended level of Nvidia GPU in a laptop?
This is my current short list of gaming brand/options I'm looking at, would like to hear if anyone has any experience with them with Vegas. Good, bad or other. Currently budgeting $2K-$3K.
1. Razer Blade 15
2. Lenovo Legion 5
3. Eluktronics XMG NEO 15/MECH-15 G3R
4. Asus Zephyrus G15 or M15
5. MSI Raider GE66 or Titan series.
Must haves: 15in screen, Nvidia GPU, sufficient cooling, USB3.2 2x2 ports or faster, Up to 64GB Ram, Dual M.2 SSD bays.
Haven't done a lot of digging into comparison specs yet, but one thing that caught my attention about the XMG NEO is that it has an external water cooler add-on option to keep it running cool with no noise.
Sorry, don't want a desk-top but would like to get a laptop which pushes the boundaries of the performance of a desk-top. :D
