I have a budget of £1000 but would preferably like to spend around £800-900. I built a gaming PC 4 years ago and sold it as I need a laptop as I'm moving about and for uni and traveling etc, but there are so many that are so similar and I can't decide. I'm currently on a gap year trying to decide between doing graphic design in uni next year or doing environmental science, both will require decently demanding software such as Photoshop for graphic design or GIS for environmental science. However even if I choose to go with environmental science I would still love to do some graphic design on the side. So I need a laptop that can handle the software, I don't need a touchscreen btw. I would also like to do some light gaming, but mainly games like call of duty, FIFA, football manager, nothing heavy, and it wouldn't be all the time, just now and again when I'm bored. Also not bothered about fps or playing at the highest settings. The battery life doesn't concern me too much, easy to carry around the charger. I need a good screen for graphic design. Preferably 15", but would go for 14" Nd maybe 13". I'd happily get refurbished or used if it's in very good condition, so any options that are above my budget but could be below if used, I can consider. So yeah, good screen, good for Photoshop etc, good for light gaming, last me a while. Also don't mind amd apu's if you recommend them for what I need. Thanks in advance for any help

This is a bit over but has 500gig SSD and 7I processor. A young friend bought one at below £1000 a month ago
