I'm searching for a replacement laptop of the one I have right now. (Lenovo Y50 2014)
It's going to be used for standard schoolwork, running multiple virtual machines (3-4), watching movies and gaming. My school has as recommendation that I have 16gb RAM, a big harddisk with good speed and an I7. (Or something comparable.) I also am looking for good build quality since it's going to go through much abuse in my bag and at school, a nice IPS screen and good speakers.
I would like for it to not look too "gamer". And have an RJ45 network port. (But this is not essential since I can also use an adapter.) It would also be nice if it is lighter and thinner than my old Lenovo, but I could live with it not being that.
Battery life isn't that important. It's nice to have good battery life, but I was always tethered to the wall with my old one, so I'm not that bothered.
I live in the Netherlands and my budget is max 1300 euros, but it is preferably around the 1000-1100.
I myself am looking at something like this: click here
