SW 2016 - Gaming laptop or MS SB/SP4?


I'm going to include the link to my other thread if that is ok.  If none of this thread is ok, then I understand.  Just wasn't sure where to post it to get the most exposure.


Anyway, I'm stuck on what I should buy for school for SW 2016 Student...


I either want a gaming laptop (which is bulky in comparison and maybe bigger than I need in terms of screen).  i7, 16+ GB RAM, SSD, GeForce 960m or higher, 15-17" screen.


Or I want a Surface...not sure if I want a Pro 4 or Book...leaning towards the Pro 4 though.  Biggest question is do I want the i5 or i7?  Next question is will the 256GB be suitable?  I'm not thinking I will ever fill it up, but if for some reason I need expansion, I don't see why I can't just buy a microSD for it.  Besides that, I have a desktop at home with more storage.  I don't think it's really a question as I'll most likely just get 16GB RAM, but is 8GB ok or just do the 16 and forget about that.


Thanks for your time.
