Great all-around value
Bottom line: I would recommend this laptop to anyone. It's a great all around machine; it's light and small enough to travel well, but powerful enough to handle Adobe/CAD/GIS software--and gaming! It's a great value for around $1000. The battery life is really impressive too. Pros: -Light -Long batt...

I love the Swift X specs. 5800U and 3050ti but 14" is too small for me. I love what Lenovo and other manufacturers are doing with 16" QHD displays, but a 15/17 1080p would be enough. I'm not much of an avid gamer, but I like to game every once in a while, so I don't need much GPU power, just enough to run any game in mid detail 1080p, or something like that.
Requirement: College work (MS Office/CAD/CAE) and occational gaming + Good Battery + DualBoot into Linux/Win10. Based on that I have narrowed down on, Acer Swift X (5600U+RTX3050) and HP Victus 16 (5600H+RTX3050).

I'm looking to do schoolwork (browsing, note-taking etc.) and some moderate gaming, mostly AAA single-player games and some Warzone. Acer Swift X: $1,069 on Amazon, r7 5800u & 3050ti 40W.
Acer Swift X (AMD) Review
The latter fills a kind of neither-fish-nor-fowl niche—it's a bit heavier than an ultraportable and falls short of a full-fledged gaming rig or workstation—but it's a speedy compromise at a fair price. The Swift X doesn't earn Editors' Choice honors, but it definitely has its attractions, if you need a little bit more power (CPU and GPU alike) for the money in a mainstream machine

Laptop for aerospace engineer
Check out the Acer Swift X. It's a thin-and-light with good battery life, a 3050ti which is a pretty good GPU and a Ryzen 7 5th generation.

Decent design with adequate cooling. Shipping times are reasonable, because they only seem to list configurations that they actually have.
