    I would try Sager. Build to your specs and quite cheap.…

    $1599 gets you
    8th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-8750H Processor
    15.6" Full HD, 120Hz 3ms, Wide View Angle,
    94% NTSC Matte Display
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB GDDR5 (Max-Q design)
    16GB DDR4 at 2666MHz
    250GB Western Digital Blue M.2 SSD + 1TB 7200rpm HDD
    Intel Wireless-AC 9560 + Bluetooth
    Color illuminated keyboard
    Windows 10 Home 64-Bit Edition
    0.73 inches thin Ultra-slim design

    Or you pretty much build your own. They have a ton of options. Plus no third party bloatware. But I also picked up a refurbed 13" HP spectre 2in1 the other day for travel/lighter workload stuff that is pretty nice. I think it was about ~1200 and came with a 1TB toshiba xg5 drive and the 8th gen 8850 chip that's a quad. Nice upgrade for the 13in form factor. Seems to last a long time on standby and fast enough for some rush emergencies. Stylus is nice can sit and watch tv and draw on it and play around.

    • If you don't mind a 7th gen intel you have a lot more options on refurbs. Stick with a grade A and do a little shopping on newegg and makers refurb sites youdeathboy
    • can probably find a well spec'd rig for a grand. HP outlet also usually runs promos like free monitor with purchase if that is something u interested in https:deathboy
