    Hello there,

    I was wondering what is the best ASUS laptop I can get which has Thunderbolt 3 (or 4), Touch Screen, and Dedicated Graphics.

    I'm not sure, I looked at ASUS, but I am very confused which are the best ones.


    Also, can someone please explain if I can upgrade the graphics after I buy the laptop?

    And here's the copy:


    1) What is your budget?


    2) What size notebook would you prefer?
    Either of these:

    d. Mainstream; 15" - 16" screen
    e. Desktop Replacement; 17"+ screen
    3) Which country will you buying this notebook?

    4) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?
    a. Like: ASUS, Lenovo, HP
    b. Dislike:
    5) Would you consider laptops that are refurbished/redistributed?


    6) What are the primary tasks will you be performing with this notebook?

    Writing on touchscreen, playing gaming, High Video Editing

    7) Will you be taking the notebook with you to different places, leaving it on your desk or both?


    8) Will you be playing games on your notebook? (If so, please state which games or types of games?)

    Borderlands 3, Fall Guys, Overwatch

    9) How many hours of battery life do you need?

    As many as I can get

    10) Would you prefer to see the notebooks you're considering before purchasing it or buying a notebook on-line without seeing it is OK?

    Either way

    11) What OS do you prefer? Windows, Mac OS, Linux, Chrome OS, etc.

    Windows or Mac

    Screen Specifics

    12) What screen resolution(s) would you prefer? (See further below for explanations.)

    4K (or 1080p only if everything else is very good)

    13) Do you want a glossy/reflective screen or a matte/non-glossy screen? (See further below for explanations.)


    Build Quality and Design

    14) Are the notebook's looks and stylishness important to you?


    Notebook Components

    15) How much hard drive space do you need?

    At least 1TB SSD

    Timing, Warranty and Longevity

    16) When are you buying this laptop?


    17) How long do you expect to use this laptop?

    5 years

    18) How long could you afford to do without your laptop if it were to fail?

    About 3 weeks

    19) Would you be willing to pay significantly extra for on-site warranty, or would it be acceptable to you to have to ship the laptop to the vendor for repair with perhaps a week or more outage?

    An Asus ProArt StudioBook 15 or 17 would work well. They are not explicitly gaming machines, but they have GeForce graphics cards and full-gamut color screens that are good for video editing.

    No, laptop dedicated graphics cards are not upgradeable.
