I am relatively new to GIS.  I have been using it for about 1.5 years for work managing data and making maps for a field crew.  I recently decided to pursue a graduate certificate in GIS from a local university.  My current laptop is out of date for ArcGIS Pro which they are using.  I have been reading up on different configurations and models of laptops but nothing is jumping out at me as the right answer.  I am looking to spend under $2000, but want something that will last at least 5 years and run smoothly (I do not imagine I will be working with unusually large data sets...).  I have noticed a lot of people talking about the Dell Precision and XPS 15 laptops although some gaming laptops, Asus in particular, seem much more affordable.  This may be asking a lot, but any recommendations from this community having much more knowledge and experience than myself would be greatly appreciated.
