hi guys, I have been contemplating to buy a new laptop for a while since my laptop is 7 years old, and it cannot play most of new games anymore, and not to mention, it can only use 8 gb ram at maximum, since my job is a data analyst, I figure I need to buy a more powerful laptop but can play new games at least in medium quality with 1080p resolution.

my verdict goes to gaming laptop that uses GTX 1650 + AMD Ryzen 5-3550H since the price point is just right (less than $1000)
(spec is something like this https://www.asus.com/Laptops/ASUS-TUF-Gaming-FX505DD-DT-DU/ )

I read that the GTX 1650 has a slight better performance than GTX 1050 TI despite a cheaper price point, which is a sweet spot for me. However I have never used AMD processor before, so I am not really sure whether I will have any trade off when purchasing an AMD laptop.

I would love to try new emulators such as CEMU/RPCS3/Citra with this laptop and maybe play recent games with medium setting.

Can anyone share their experience of using something with a similar setup? Unfortunately because US dollar is very expensive at the moment, I cannot really afford to buy a laptop more expensive than this. :(

btw my old laptop was using GT640m, I didn't really research beforehand and just thought something with a larger number on the serial would indicate a better performance. I kinda regret my purchase since I could have bought a better laptop. I hope I won't make the same mistake twice.

You can get a RTX 2060/Rysen 3600 Desktop for around 1000$ or even less, it can run almost all the games at 1440p 60fps, and you can also play at 4K 30fps on some titles. I say this because i own one. Laptops are not that good for gaming.

Edit: I see you bought a laptop, if you like it thats what matters, if not, you can always return it and get your money back.

I wish it's the case, unfortunately rtx 2060 laptop is quite expensive here because of tax and strong dollars. It will be good for me for while

I chose a laptop because I move a lot.
