Hi, I need help choosing a new laptop for college. Im doing software engineering and often do some photo shooting and editing. I also plan to pick up video editing in the future. My budget is around RM6.5K (lower is better) . Im looking for something not too bulky and weighs <3kg. I plan to bring my work along with me wherever I go.

I've done some minor research before, and I've been told that i don't need such a beast of a processor like the i7-7700HQ for editing. Not that i don't want it but I'd like to go for the cheaper yet usable option. I also would prefer a nice display like thin bezels, don't really need the 4K though. Something with minimum 4-5 hrs of battery life.

I play mostly light games like League of Legends and some other titles but don't play much heavy graphic requiring games because I'm too broke to afford games on Steam (maybe one day lol). But nonetheless I'm open to suggestions and advice biggrin.gif

you can easily get lenovo legion y520 with gtx1050 and i7 7700hq, 8gb ram for 3k. 6.5k for laptop but no money for steam ? that's like saying I got money to buy BMW but no money to pay for Ex5 motorcycle

games are real cheap on steam sales, and games are not subscriptions so its still a one off thing. I can get shadow of morder GOTY edition for rm18 and less on Steam sale
