Looking for recommendation on a good (non-Mac) laptop for grad school in financial engineering/financial math. Most of the time I will be using Python & C++ on this machine. Not a gamer. Do you think a separate GPU is necessary/important for computationally intensive tasks, e.g. machine learning in finance? (I’m looking at X1 Carbon and X1 Extreme, but not sure if the separate GPU in Extreme is needed for this major).

You’ll want a lot of processing power. Not sure if a separate GPU is necessary, but might be worth the investment.

These were the specs I had for MSFE and they were plenty, definitely suggest a lighter version for grad school

Won’t you be using it mainly as a virtual PC? If so, ultra books are the move.
