    Hello guys,

    My name is Renur and I am from Belgium (a student) and I need a new laptop ( a second one). The one that I am using right now is Acer Aspire 7560, 17 inch.

    I am not a heavy gamer but I do play games like Dota and League of Legends if I have some free time. Movies are important for me so a good quality screen is needed. I read the newspaper daily, thus having a touchscreen makes things very easy. Programs like Powerpoint,Word and SSPS ( software for statistics) will be used heavily.
    As you guys can see I don't need a laptop that has specs from another world, I just need a durable device that will last long enough ( at least 5 years ) and it will be easy to use.

    I looked up a few hybrids and I "decided" to buy the newest inspiron 17 7000 2-in-1 and here are the specs

    - 7th generation I5
    - 12 GB Dual Channel DDR4 2.133 MHz (8 GB x 1 + 4 GB x 1)
    - H1 TB, 2,5 inch Seagate Rosewood 5.400 rpm 7 mm, HDD
    - NVIDIA® GeForce 940MX 2 GB GDDR5
    - 17,3 inch FHD (1.920 x 1.080)

    PRICE 900€ (that's how much I can afford)

    and here is the link (but keep in mind that it is in dutch )

    So here are my questions:

    (1) What do you think about the price to built quality ratio. Will it last long enough?
    (2) Does anyone have any experience with this particular model ?
    (3) Would you recommend me this one or the Inspiron 15 Gaming given the fact that i am a student and play games like Dota and League of Legends?
    (4) Are there better options on the market (Lenovo, Asus or Acer) ?

    Thank you guys in advance. I hope i can find the answers here !

    Well, if you're looking for a durable laptop, I'd ignore consumer-class laptops altogether and look into business-class laptops (Dell's business laptops being the Latitude line), though they might be out of budget if you don't go OEM-refurbished. Otherwise, with consumer-class laptops, you need to treat them very carefully if you want them to last for a while.

    I'd steer towards 15.6" laptops rather than 17.3" laptops since the later are a dying breed and are a lot harder to find than the former. That said, the 15" Gaming seems to be a decent laptop for the price; I haven't used one personally but LTT apparently likes it:
