          Win 10 has been good for me since I nuked my first attempt. Pro tip: Don't just do the upgrade, do a clean install. I was battling mystery glitches with my peripherals for ages until one day I just wiped it all and started from scratch.

              I need a new work laptop. my 3.5yro Lenovo is struggling to keep up and has served me well. Work software is very varied, some of it is really poorly optimised while some of it has never been updated since Win98. I would like to have something with decent grunt, 15" screen, dont care for touchscreen. Would like to play some games when away for work, so integrated graphics is a no-go. I havent used Win10 much, but will definitely be holding on to my old laptop for legacy software and guaranteed win10 issues.

              Some searching common brands was a bit fruitless and came across the custom laptop game. I really like this Metabox Prime P650RP.
              15.6" FHD 1920 x 1080 IPS WVA Matte 60Hz LED
              NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 VRAM
              Core i7-6700HQ Processor (6M Cache up to 3.50 GHz)
              16GB DDR4 2133MHZ (1 x 16GB)
              Crucial MX300 525GB SATA 3 M.2 SSD
              Intel 3165 AC Dual Band WIFI/BT (up to 433 Mbps)
              External USB Slim DVD-RW Optical Drive
              Win 10 Home 64BIT License & Media - Installed & Ready-Out-Of-The-Box
              1 Year Platinum + 1 Year Extended Premium Care Protection
              Spare AC Adaptor 200W

              $2,300AUD delivered. (thats with not many optionals, and one downgrade)
              It seems like a great price. almost, too good.

              Does anyone have experience or recommendations for these boutique or custom laptop companies? Similar spec (some higher) laptops for other companies didnt get much change from $3k, so I'm a bit skeptical.

                  Thanks.
                  Had a look at their website and a lot of the laptops i came across are a bit dated (DDR3 ram, older intel chips and graphics, a lot came with windows8) but still asking over $2k.
                  I've had to lower budget to $2k or less to increase likelihood of convincing boss haha
