Please help me choose a laptop

I just wanted to ask if you might have any ideas about this.)

Around the New Year, I want to buy a laptop for studying, because I realized that taking notes in certain files is much more convenient than carrying around a bunch of notebooks. Moreover, you can make certain inserts in the files, go to the IPR book (this is an electronic library). Plus, I realized that the system operator anchors the person. If there is a laptop, I can always study anywhere, not just at home) And in this regard, I need your advice on what you would do) And what should I do?

You will need to quickly turn on certain programs; with all this, of course, you will need to turn on movies often, and I would like to watch them in a fairly comfortable environment, with a pleasant color reproduction.

I define approximate techs. indicators like:

Processor: Intel Core i3-i5, or normal AMD, which will be responsible for performing all operations;
RAM: 8GB+, which will give the appropriate boost to the processor and speed up all processes
And a video card… here the main question is: will it be required in principle, if the laptop will not be used for games? Another question is-if the map is just integrated - will I be able to watch movies in good quality?

As for the models: I choose between ASUS VivoBook M433IA-EB575, 14", because there is, as a friend told me, a good percentage of AMD, 16 GB. RAM, 512 Gb. SSD. As for the card - it is integrated, AMD Radeon. IPS.

For a while, I even looked at the MacBook Air, which in fact have a very good battery, and this is very necessary on a pair; and for sure they will last a sufficient number of years. At the same time, I constantly look in the direction of the MacBook… there’s something about them… special) at least-even their operating system, their design. But… in my opinion, this technique is more for professionals (support for a huge number of Photoshop, Fine Cut other professional programs). It is sad enough, probably, to use such a “machine” for the most basic tasks. It’s like driving a Ferrari through the countryside

There is also an option with ASUS M509DA-BQ1126, 15.6", IPS, AMD Ryzen 5 3500U 16GB, 1000GB, 128GB SSD, AMD Radeon Vega 8. As for me-a cool option)

I can’t go into more specific models yet, but I just say that a video card is not only for games.
This is a device that responsible for all video operations, starting from desktop image output, comfortable films viewing and finishing with videogames.
If you need to watch videos/movies on your new laptop among other things, personally I would consider an internal video card, not built-in.
For my taste this is much better in all aspects than limited built-in graphics

Get an IBM compact model from 1986.

Best “Laptop” you can get, has all the ram you’re going to need.

I have a Razer Blade 15 with GTX 1060 max Q and I’m very very happy with it.
The problem is it costs a lot and the battery doesn’t last that long like more or less 6/7 hours. But it does run all the games.
There is Razer Blade 13 inch. Small yet very powerful with a maybe 10 hour battery life, 120hz screen, GTX 1050, 16 of ram. Take a look into it.
