    Hello! So im studying mechatronics engineering and i use programs like solidworks, autocad, etc and also i do some programming.
    I read that i need a laptop with an i7 h or hq type and at least 8 gb of ram .
    As i was searching, i found these 3:

    *Asus vivobook pro n580gd (1tb hhd, 17 8750h, 8 ram + 16gb optane, fhd, 5 lbs. US$999) (this laptop has some pretty bad reviews about the screen, the hard drive, the trackpad and the battery life)

    *Dell g3 (i7 8750h, 1tb hdd+ 256 ssd, 16gb ram, 5.7lbs which makes it heavy for me. US$1129)(also has some bad reviews about screen).

    *Lenovo ideapad 330 15-ich ( i7 8750h, 16gb ram, 4.8lbs, (another model has 8gb ram + 16 optane) , 128 ssd+1tb hhd (other model has 1tb hhd) (this one has bad reviews about quality of how it is built. also, it may be a little old, considering that i wanna make some changes to the laptop in the future. most models doenst have backlit keyboard and all the ports are on the left side)

    One of the things that concern me is the weight, as i think 5.7 lbs is too heavy, but if it is the best out of this three i can try. Also, is there is one better than these and not so expensive (1200) I would love to check it out.

    Thanks a lot in advance.
