Recommendations for Laptop Replacement (Gaming and Coding) - Budget $1500

Hi All

I recently killed my trusty Thinkpad S5 Gen 2 (7300HQ 1050TI 16GB) during a Wi-Fi card upgrade, will hopefully trace the short and fix it someday.

Having said it's lasted about 4 years time for an upgrade, I've shortlisted a few off OzBargain deals and eBay.

  • Acer Nitro 5 AN515-55, i5-10300H, 8GB RAM, 512GB SSD, 144Hz, Nvidia RTX 3060 @ $1,298 + $150 Credit HN
    I will salvage the DDR4 sticks from the dead laptop to bump this to 16GB

  • MSI GF65 Thin 10UE-208AU, i5-10500H 16GB 512GB 144Hz RTX3060 @ $1,199

  • DELL G5 15 i7-10750H 16GB 512 GB 120Hz GTX 1660Ti TB3 @ $1,379 + $69 cashback

  • DELL G5 15 i7-10750H 16GB 512 GB 144Hz RTX 2070 MaxQ TB3 @ $1,450 + $43.50 cashback

My primarily use is for work i.e. Coding , Adobe XD PS & AI and the occasional game.

I'd like to future proof this purchase for 3-4 years ( unless I brick it before that :D )

Let me know your thoughts and feel free to drop any suggestions.
