    I would have a look at the GS75 or msi gs 66 both solid laptops with dedicated graphics and nice screens, unfortunately finding a gaming laptop that is thin and light with dedicated laptops that does not overheat is difficult if not impossible. but I would seriously look at the MSI rtx 2060 GS75 its a 17in thin and semi light laptop with decent battery life and good build quality

    My Maingear Vector doesn't overheat. It's not super powerful, only has a 9750H and a 1660 TI, but still pretty solid performance for how thin it was. I paid $999 for it at Microcenter last year. I think they sell newer revisions of it now, but don't think they're quite as cheap anymore.

    EDIT: Missed the touchscreen part, don't think the MSI JRE recommended is touchscreen either, that requirement removes a lot of otherwise good options.
