Better option than Acer Nitro 5 w/32 GB Ram

Hey guys,

My MacBook with 8 gb ram just isn't cutting it anymore so I am in the market for a new machine. I need a laptop since I am on the go, but also prefer it for the main workhorse in the studio as well. Looking at the Acer Nitro 5 with 32 gb Ram and 3.5 ghz i7 for 1099, is there a laptop that can beat it? Any thoughts on the nitro would be appreciated, looking on a budget so no another MacBook won't cut it since they are atrocious in performance for the price.

After some research, I have found the lenovo y700 17.3 inch with 32 gb, all metal chassis......anybody gig with a 17.3? my MacBook weighs like 3.5 pounds and im worried for my back lugging around a 7.7 lb beast.....17.3 would be nice for on the go arrangement views in ableton though....

Big fan of Acer here FWIW. Been using Aspire's since about '04. Reliable, long-lasting. You can't go wrong.
