I'm in the process of searching for a replacement for my 5.5 year old Samsung laptop that is running Windows 7 and is outdated. Plus, come January 2020 Microsoft will no longer provide updates and support. I've been checking Amazon and BestBuy but the reviews are so conflicting so I'm looking for some honest opinions. Below are the specs as to what I'm looking for. Price point is no more than $1200 usd.

* preference

17.3" * / 15.6"
Intel Core i7
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 * /  1050 Ti
256 * / 128GB SSD + 1TB HD
16 * / 8GB Memory
Backlit KB & not squishy to the touch
Speakers NOT underneath the laptop
Good cooling
Good wifi
--------
Don't need or want touch screen or 2 in 1

I've looked at Asus, Acer, Alienware, MSI, Lenovo, and Dell.

Suggestions are more than welcome. Thanks guys.

I just bought one of these and couldn't be happier. The only recommendation that I have for this laptop if you are using for other games alongside lineage or playing lineage on higher than low graphics settings is getting another 8gb of ram off amazon or eBay for an additional $50. All that and you're still under 1000 USD.
