    I'm currently using a MSI GS63VR and I love this thing. Its sturdy, sleek, light and powerful. However it's time for an upgrade and I will be handing this one down to a business partner who does not game. I would jump on the MSI GS66 but they did away with the number pad and I need that for work. With that being said here's the list.

    1) What is your budget?

    3.5k

    2) What size notebook would you prefer? D

    a. Ultraportable; 10" - 12" screen
    c. Thin and Light; 13" - 14" screen
    d. Mainstream; 15" - 16" screen
    e. Desktop Replacement; 17"+ screen

    3) Which country will you buying this notebook?

    USA

    4) Are there any brands that you prefer or any you really don't like?

    a. Like: MSI, Dell, ASUS

    b. Dislike:

    5) Would you consider laptops that are refurbished/redistributed?

    Yes if the price is right.

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

    QuickBooks desktop, MS Office, Email, Web Browsing and Adobe products.

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

    Both
    , I travel frequently.

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

    CoD, Valarant, Doom, Assassins Creed, tbh most big title games interest me.

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

    At least 3, 4 would be ideal.

    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?

    Online is fine since I can just pull it up on YouTube.

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

    Windows

    Screen Specifics

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

    1080p

    13) Do you want a glossy/reflective screen or a matte/non-glossy screen? (See further below for explanations.) No Preference.

    Build Quality and Design

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

    Yes, to an extent. It can’t be too flashy for business meetings though.

    Notebook Components

    15) How much hard drive space do you need?

    At least 1TB

    Timing, Warranty and Longevity


    16) When are you buying this laptop?
    Hopefully Mid June.


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

    3 years

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

    A day or two.

    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?

    Depends on the situation.


    Extra: I need it to have a number pad for data input. Since I travel a bit, the easier it is to travel with the better (i.e. light and not bulky).

    Maybe the current Gigabyte Aurous 15G (YB-9US2430MP). It matches most of your needs while not being too flashy. I'm not a fan of the goofy eagle logo for Aurous but otherwise it looks solid.
