Hello, I am looking for a 15.6" laptop for my daughter who is starting college so I would like for it to be able to meet her needs for the next 4 years.
I would like an Intel i7 processor with built-in webcam, 16GB memory and a total of at least 1TB with at least 512 of it SSD, preferably 1TB SSD.
The problem is she wants the touchpad to have the 2 mouse buttons, which almost nobody makes anymore. She also wants a black (or other dark matte) rather than silver finish if possible.
Price point is under $1500 if possible. She does play a bunch of Steam games on it so a separate graphics card (NVIDIA preferred) would be nice but not essential.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide! Since we don't live near a Micro Center store, we would have to be able to buy it online.
You're quite welcome! Happy to assist!
Welcome to the community! Thanks for providing such helpful insight about what you're looking for!
My first recommendation that comes to mind is the MSI GF65 Thin. It's a 15.6" laptop that meets all the specifications that you've mentioned. It also comes with the latest NVIDIA 3060 mobile GPU and it's still under your budget.
Just in case you're looking for more recommendations I've compiled a list of the laptops that would match the specifications that you're looking for!
Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about anything! I'm happy to help!
Thank you for your response! As far as I can tell that recommendation doesn’t have the touchpad “mouse” buttons that we are looking for, but I think one of the ones on your list does. Thanks!
Ah, I did not interpret your meaning correctly, apologies!
Another that would have two physically individual buttons would be the GL65.
Apologies again for missing that!
Thanks so much! That seems to be the only one I can find right now that fits all of her criteria. Thanks again for your help!
