    Mac book Pro alternative

    Hey guys,

    Next month, I am moving abroad for a year/two contract and thus selling my Gaming rig and old surface so I can purchase a strong laptop on which I can do both work and occasional gaming.

    I am looking to spend $2-2.7k USD (Around $2.5-3k CAD)on this machine
    15" screen. HD is ok, but has to be a solid screen
    Desktop replacement laptop, but one that can still be used for 3-4 hours outside for non-intensive work (Coding, Emails, Watching Udemy...)
    I'd like to play PUBG, Starcraft 2, FarCry 5 on High, but I am ok with Medium if it's a good machine otherwise
    I do a lot of coding, which isn't too CPU intensive, but I would like to be able to connect 1-2 extra monitors without slowing down the machine too much
    Plan on keeping this laptop for 2-3 years
    I do not need any optical drives
    I had a dell XPS 13" recently, which was a great machine, almost powerful enough for my needs, but I have sold it. I am open to any brands, except maybe HP, I had their laptop die on me after 1 year in 2010
    I live in Canada at the moment, but that will change in a month

    So far I like Razor Blade 15" and XPS 15", is there anything else that you have experience with that would fit my requirements? Something as thin as possible but still powerful would be best.

    More gaming orientated laptops obviously, if you were after an IPS screen i'd say the Dell XPS if your best bet.

    I think Skidu is right. ASUS ROG Strix Scar II GL704GM-EV001T 17.3" 144Hz 3ms Gaming is really awesome, and would fit your needs.

    How about Alienware?

    15 R4 Intel Core i7-8750H, 6Gb GeForce GTX 1060, 16Gb DDR4 RAM, 1Tb HDD & 256Gb SSD, 15.6 inch FHD G-Sync Gaming Laptop

    You can get it for ~£1450 in the UK, should be cheaper in Canada/US.
