Motherboard on my old gaming laptop crapped out suddenly. Pity as I enjoyed it.

Looking for a new one, obviously, but I want something portable as I often play in more than one room depending on how much comfort I need for long sessions of play. Not exactly married to a laptop though, and am willing to see what smaller PC towers are out there.

As for my needs:
- I don't ever play with the built in keyboard so that is a non-issue outside of casual typing.

- I would like a blu-ray drive as I have use for those.

- Has to be high-end specs as I don't upgrade more than every half-decade or so. That said, the ability to upgrade is nice. My last laptop had a replaceable cpu and gpu, which is rare.

- I don't do vr, as I know that factors into specs.

- I do heavy image/video editing, computation, and solid modeling besides gaming which greatly factors into specs. My last computer ran with amd stuff and did all of the above like a champ.

- Would like it to handle 4k.

- Needs a good wireless card as I won't bother with anything that doesn't.

- I don't build my own pcs (which somehow offends people, but I don't care)

That is all I can think of off the top of my head.

Another thing I would like is some usb 3 ports.

I do need an sd card slot also.

A good sound card is very much needed requirement too as I forgot about all the recording gear I need to hook up also.

Completely forgot about cooling too.

Unless you want to spend a lot of money with those needs, you should just get into building a PC.
Laptops normally dont have Bluray for what I saw and gaming in 4k specs would be on par of VR ready ones.

I use a MSI GS43VR 7RE and I love it.

I am noticing about the expensive thing.

My recently dead laptop was msi also @Solhdier

On second thought if you want 4k get a 1080.
