Hello, y'all. My laptop was judged as dead today, so I am looking to get some replacements. Because I still require portability, I need a laptop, but also looking into getting a gaming desktop, especially for Minecraft, AoE and a few other random games, but also should be able to do CAD. I have many builds lined up (for several months), but I want to draw upon the community expertise, so yeah. I need a full set of peripherals minus a keyboard (would be great if mouse is wireless!), and the monitor has to have 2 inputs. My budget is $2500, and I am in the USA, east coast. Because I need some features enabled, I need paid Windows 10 Pro on both devices. The laptop is preferably new (no refurbished or used), should be drop-resistant and portable, and have enough performance for light CAD, light gaming and long battery life (read: Intel Integrated Graphics are fine). Points added if the laptop is a Lenovo Thinkpad! I did these two together to see what balances between the budget of the 2 devices I can expect.
Am I rambling?
