So i manage to choose a laptop that i got from the guide in the community thanks to @Alex Glawion . but i still have some doubt about the laptop that i have chosen so i need your reviews on this before i make any purchase. My activities on a laptop are (2D & 3D) Animation with Blender, VFX, Video editing, Programming & Gaming. The laptop that i have chosen is

GIGABYTE AERO 15 - 15.6" - Intel Core i7-10870H - NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Laptop GPU - 16 GB DDR4 - 512 GB SSD - Windows 10 Home - Gaming Laptop (AERO 15 XC-8US1130SH) Plus a​

Looks like a great Laptop for your needs. Great GPU, strong CPU, a Numpad, good-sized SSD, decent amount of RAM. It'll depend on the current price tag if it's the deal your looking for.

Take a look at the Lenovo Legion Laptops as we recommend those often. They have great value and come in a variety of configurable specs.

Everyone keeps recommending me Lenovo laptops I have checked the out and there cool too but the problems are the prices which are too high and some of them have the graphics card between RTX 1668 & 2070 , since I am new in the animation and gaming space this worries me a lot if the RTX 2070 or 16series are right for my needs because I want to learn many things with that laptop but my first priority is 2D & 3D animation in Blender then followed by other animation softwares like Unity, Cinema 4D and others that I feel like exploring them too with the same laptop 💻. But I managed to get one in new which is Acer Predator Helios 300 - 15.6" 240 Hz - Intel Core i7-10750H - GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q - 16 GB Memory - 512 GB PCIe SSD - Windows 10 Home - Gaming Laptop (PH315-53-71QX). IMG_20210522_125422.jpg The graphics card is RTX 3060 but since the it is out of stock I can still wait for it to back again and purchase it . 🙂🙂🙂 IMG_20210522_132004.jpgBut I would love to here your review on it about the issue of graphics card should I go for it or not .?
