Notebook for music, office and light games ~ €800


I’m planning to buy a laptop for the next month as I’ll likely be on the road more in the coming months and years than before. Here the focus is on Music production, office and light games.

1. What do you want to use your laptop for? Commercial or private use?
Use it on the go because I have a gaming PC at home.

1.1 Do you want to use your laptop mainly mobile or stationary? How should a laptop be? Should it be a 2-in-1 laptop / convertible?
Mobile, ordinary notebook is sufficient.

1.2 If you want to play games: What are games? What is the level of detail?
Playing easy á WoW, Genshin Impact, Valorant, Crusader Kings 3 & Co.. I’m also happy to compromise the graphics quality here.

Music production with FL-Studio, if light photo editing required.

2. What is the screen size? Do you want a touch screen or a particularly high quality display?

3. How long should the battery life be?
Don’t bother me here, about 6 to 8 hours would be desirable.

4. What operating system do you want to use? Is there a license? Should the notebook already have an operating system preinstalled? Do you get Windows through university?
Uni license for Windows available.
