  • Total budget (in local currency) and country of purchase. Please do not use USD unless purchasing in the US:
Around 1000€, I live in France

  • Are you open to refurbs/used?
Ideally something new

  • How would you prioritize form factor (ultrabook, 2-in-1, etc.), build quality, performance, and battery life?
Build quality quite important, same for battery life

  • How important is weight and thinness to you?
Something that I can carry around in a bag pack

  • Do you have a preferred screen size? If indifferent, put N/A.
15 inches

  • Are you doing any CAD/video editing/photo editing/gaming? List which programs/games you desire to run.
Music Production (Ableton) and some photo editing

  • If you're gaming, do you have certain games you want to play? At what settings and FPS do you want?
N/A

  • Any specific requirements such as good keyboard, reliable build quality, touch-screen, finger-print reader, optical drive or good input devices (keyboard/touchpad)?
Good keyboard, an HDMI input and some USB inputs (for audio interfaces)

Since weight is not a big deal, there are plenty of options for 15 inch laptops.
Any Quad-Core 8th/ 10 th gen with 16 GB of RAM with 512 GB of SSD with possible HDD of 1TB is usually enough unless you're making symphonic/ trailor type music.

I have a Asus Zenbook Duo with 2.5 years warranty. Let me know if interested at 80K.
