    Question 2000 Laptop worth it?

    Hey,

    I am getting a new laptop, and I don't know what to really get. I'm not looking to buy any outside of the country I live in, atm. - Denmark (awesome country.)
    I was originally thinking of getting a PC around 1400$, I got to the store, and it was fucking sold out... FFS!
    It was sale from 1700$ to 1400$!

    But now after checking their website again, and thinking and thinking I wanted to get a laptop, which right now costs around 2000$. No accessories, + standard warranty, so will easily be 2300$+ :/ when I'm done getting everything..
    The specs of the laptop are:
    Intel Core i7 6700HQ 2,6 (3,5)
    Geforce GTX 960M 4GB
    16GB RAM
    1.000GB
    128SSD
    Is that worth 2000$? For me, it looks pretty good?!
    This is really spending a lot of the money, that I have saved up. But I'm sure this would do me good. Not only will I use it for studying, but I will also use it for gaming, and many more things :P And I kinda travel a bit.

    The laptop which i am currently using is a 2013 Macbook pro, which at it's prime cost about 1000$ Not really using that much, and I need something new.. And I ain't really that big fan of Apple anyway.. Only have the 5S..... But yeah, and any good links for a good mouse and mouse pad? Not too expensive :P Under 100$ please

    This'll run Crysis 3, BF4, and any other new games ultra 60+ fps right? :P

    Nah, but around perhaps... High-medium 60 fps? Or am i just killing it? Not really the best with PC/Laptop stuff...

    Would this last for at least 3-5 years? With everyday use, 4+ hours. #studyhard

    If everything goes to plan, I'll probably get this tomorrow. Sadly the store is closed for today, but yeah.. FUCK YEAH!

    Thanks for reading, and every answer.
    If you have any tips or gr8 links, that will be appreciated THANK YOU! HAVE AN AMAZING DAY, MY <3








    *Oh, I'm sure I've been annoying with all these posts about laptops, I'm sorry, but I ain't really getting answers on any other forums. This seem to be the most active, so yeah. sry* And, If you know how to get a Paypal account back, if you have forgotten everything, please contact me. My skype is Camanic779. <3 thx

    Well I decided to get GS72 Stealth, I wanted to get GS72 Stealth pro but it has 2 better things, a better processor and 4k i think. For me it's not worth it and the gs72 stealth is going to cost me around $1600 dollars.

    Only worth spending that much money if it's a desktop pc. Otherwise I would spend $800 max on a laptop.

    Oh heeeeellll no, not a fucking chance that a laptop is worth 2000 bucks. Hell, you could buy a godly desktop with that, why even think about spending you money on that lol.

    Well, as I said, I will travel and use it a lot on different locations. not only at home. wanna be able to use it at school as well. So not worth it? Would it at least be able to play games like bf4 at least at 40 fps, at high settings.

    And will it be able to run The DayZ Mod pretty good, right?


    *EDIT.*
    Well, I kinda got the money.. so why not? I'm probably gonna use this for 5 years.. Just really wanna know what it really can do.. Is it a good idea, if I download can i run it, at the store.. before i buy it??!

    If you travel ALOT and never really stay at one place, for instance a trucker, then yeah, buy the laptop.

    I don't think it's worth imo... Waste honestly, unless you certainly can't get a computer.

    If you get computer parts for a total of $2000, with the right build, it could be worth $4000 if you build it yourself.

    A $2000 laptop is a risky take imo. Laptops don't usually last that long, well at least the ones that I had didn't, they were all $1000+ laptops, and I wasn't a fan honestly.

    A computer lasts for a long time, and they're easy to fix if anything at all goes wrong with it.

    well he travels alot and is still studying as he said, so in his case its pretty smart to buy a laptop instead of a PC

    Overpriced, shop outside of your home country and have it shipped. Costs like $30 to ship shit via fedex economy from europe to usa
