For 1660TI, yes
Different Ideapad model have different pros and cons

There are other slight differences of course like input devices quality since it's a different model
Yes, but don't buy from Acer directly (never buy at MSRP price)

Very low end - definitely not old AMD APU, some have Celeron CPU, 4GB non-upgradeable RAM, 768p TN panel, very small battery

Hi everyone.
I'm looking laptop for my sister.
My last laptop purchase is 5 years ago and I couldn't catch up the latest line models.

Budget :
Rm2500-3000 (+RM200 if necessary)

Usage :
- Mostly for typing
- Light gaming (mainly on emulation games eg PSP, DS, GBA)
- IDK what's more,but better if can render video or editing photo

Requirements :
- 1080p screen
- High quality display (no TN screen or any low quality screen crap they give it to you)
- I don't want to have eye fatigue or eye strain for prolonged usage
- Good quality and high durability keyboard (or maybe just HQ keyboard if budget is constrain for it)
- Lightweight (possible < 1.2kg ?)

Extra note:
1. Which CPU you guys recommended for notebook lineup? For desktop is definitely Ryzen but for notebook what are your experience?
2. IDK if this spec is able to get dedicated GPU, but if able which is better MX, GTX or Radeon series?
3. Need to purchase within one week.

Thank you very much

EDIT:
I looked some of custom laptop
- Illegear Raven and Raven SE seems a good deal
- I'm quite tempting with Raven with mechanical keyboard. Is it good for typing?
- Can you recommend me any other custom notebook brand?

I'm terribly sorry for wall of text. I'm really need to have full satisfaction when purchasing >RM1k gadgets.

CODE

1. Budget : <5K
2. Usage   : Light editing, Daily Gaming
3. Requirements :
Screen Size : 15"
Battery life : β€”
Weight : <2.2kg
Video Card : GTX 1650 or any better
CPU : i7-9th gen
Display : Good IPS (accurate if can bezel less)

Consideration : I would like to use it at least for 6 years and no gamer accent on chasis.


Some with 1650 that I already look:
Acer Nitro 5 (cheap)
Illegear Raven SE (cheap premium portability)
Illegear Raven (cheap)
MSI GF-63 9SC (portability premium)

Please give some advise which one better for me in long-term performance (or any other laptop that might be better).

Define high quality display - high sRGB?
Is dGPU a must?
No preference on battery life?
Max weight preferred in kg? (ignore possible <1.2kg)

If you want good quality keyboard, Thinkpad keyboard is the first thing I can think of

Budget cannot extend further?

6 years of usage is asking too much tbh

Might want to consider Illegear Raven/Raven SE or Level51 Forge 15, however Raven SE and Forge 15 don't have high sRGB option for now

Compare Y740 15 or 17? What's your budget? What games do you play? Any preference on weight and battery life?

How light weight? Give max weight in kg

Mind non-upgradeable RAM?
