    I'm mainly a desktop user, but I have to move around sometimes and it's nice to have a decent laptop. What I'm mostly looking for in a laptop is a good quality screen, build quality, and a dedicated GPU. I've been looking on my own for a couple weeks and I haven't found anything, so I'm hoping you guys can point me in the right direction. All the laptops that meet what I'm looking for seem to be in the $2000 range, so maybe I need to lower my standards. My main focus is the nice screen.

    Yeah, I should've clarified. I'd be looking more for the sRGB over refresh rate. I'd also be comfortable with something less than a 1060. My desktop is my main, so I don't need killer graphics on this thing.

    The sRGB is over 90% on that panel.
