I am a computer science major looking for a computer that will serve as my personal/class/light gamin laptop. I am looking for something with 16gb RAM minimum (32 preferably) and something with at least an i5 processor. I'd like to have a decent battery life too.
I currently own an Asus and love it. I am leaning more towards the Asus but the Dell seems to be a great contender. If you own this computer, do you like it? What's the light leakage like? How would you rate the track pad? How many programs are you able to run without it slowing down?
Open to suggestions beyond these computers :) thanks!

I am interested in possibly purchasing a Lenovo chrome book or a surface pro 4 but, I was wondering which one is better wear & tear wise as I would use it frequently for research.

Lenovo is better. Surface pro is for light users who are into the two in one gimmick.

I am looking to get Adobe photoshop for beginners. Not much of a gamer. I just want something for my pictures (have a ton) and very reliable. Not sure about HDD or SSD. Any and all thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
