Looking for upgrade suggestions, please?

Jul 26, 2022
Hi guys.

So I'm looking at upgrading my current gaming laptop and have answered the required questions below:

  1. What is your budget? - Around the £1000 mark but can maybe go to £1200 (ish).
  2. What is the size of the notebook that you are considering? - 17.3-inch size screen.
  3. What screen resolution do you want? - 1920x1080.
  4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop? - Portable.
  5. How much battery life do you need? - 6 hours.
  6. Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low, Medium or High)? - RDR2 (medium to high settings), FIFA 23 (medium to high). Preferably a setup that's able to play upcoming games relatively well for the next few years. I'm not overly bothered about playing games on high or ultra settings, although these are a bonus.
  7. What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo/Video editing, Etc.) - Music production (Ableton Live).
  8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need? - Preferably at least 1TB.
  9. If you are considering specific sites to buy from, please post their links. - https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/ct/laptops-and-netbooks/laptops/gaming
  10. How long do you want to keep your laptop? - 4-5 years.
  11. Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons. - I'm not terribly clued up on what brands are good and what aren't. I currently have a PC Specialist gaming laptop so would be happy to stick with them, but I have heard good things about MSI and Medion.
  12. What country do you live in? - UK.
  13. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
