You can get Thinkpads like A485, E485 if you don't game much. Solid keyboard.
Not sure these models are eligible for 15% student discount or not

yeah, idk if I'll be gaming or not in future. having option to play on not is an advantage, so graphic card needed too. will check both model if budget allowed.

Hmm, ZM, what do you think of the Lenovo's warranty? Is it good?

And is their 500nits qhd hdr screen better than the 4k screen on xps13?
I'm stuck between the 2

From my experience, not bad. Carry in and onsite are good. It really depends on luck and location

You mean which model with HDR? UHD panel in XPS 13 has really slow response times. Excellent overall colour quality though.
