Sooo, I've been looking at this laptop for a couple weeks now. I was very close to making a purchase, buying a used G14 with a 1650Ti for $1300, but then I realised that there could definitely be a better deal which could appear within the next few days.
First of all, I'd like to hear what you guys think?: Of this laptop/Of the upcoming deals
I've studied through literally everything for the laptop in terms of specs and reviews, and I've also just gone through and found out about price history. There has been a few deals on OzBargain for this laptop. I'm really hoping that in the next few days there will be a deal here which I could pick up. I need this laptop for Uni, and it seems absolutely perfect due to the small size and the excellent battery life (Something you'd never expect from a gaming laptop). It also packs quite a bunch for such a small laptop. I'm hoping to get the older, 1660Ti & 4800HS configured version as it seems to be the perfect balance between performance & expense. I'm hoping the deal will be around the $1400 price range (I've seen another Oz user say they got it for ~$1490 in the comment section of a deal).
Soo… What do you guys think? Any other laptop recommendations which I should have a look at while waiting around for a good deal?
Keep in mind these requirements:
- Good battery life (About the same life as the G14 - 10-12 hours of light use, 6-8 hours of medium usage)
- Good build quality (Keyboard and touchpad especially)
- Good performance (I love the 4800HS as it also means that I could get it for a better price since it's last gen)
All this with a ~$1400 budget
