Hey, I am looking for a laptop mostly for programming and some light gaming... such as FTL
I am leaning towards the XPS 15 9530 (link), as I got a XPS studio 1640 back in early 2009 and it is still working even withstanding my rough usage but quite slow due to outdated specs.
I am also considering the HP Envy 15 (link). It is cheaper and has better specs but the thing I am worried is that I used to have an HP Pavillion dv9t and it used to shutdown immediately due to overheating... Have they fixed the heating issue on the newer models?
Also are there any other models and brands that can be recommended?
The things I am looking for:
must be 4th gen Intel processor (preferably i5 or above)
must be ~15 inches
must have backlit keyboard
highly prefer with numeric keypad
prefer a matte screen
dont need dvd drive
dont need touch screen
dont need discreet video card
