But a 1060 at 80-85K was worth a shot(plus I am reluctant to go over that budget). They are back at the regular price now though.

i7 8th gen launching in a couple of weeks? They would be much costlier too right?

Is there any harm in going for 7th gen now? My work mainly involves, programming, coding, compiling work, with audio/video/image editing, Android Studio etc., and some gaming (Overwatch, FIFA etc.)

Was hoping that a 1060 would run current and some near future games, right?

Same specced Legion and Omen are upwards of 1.6L.

Yeah! The Intel Coffee Lake processors are going to be worth the increased price especially for your workloads of compiling code, and editing. Gaming too will see an uplift in performance and relatively good performance going forward as games become more accustomed to higher core counts. 

 

If you are looking at games like Overwatch and FIFA primarily then even a GTX1050Ti should hold you in good stead. What future games are you interested in, what level of performance and settings do you plan to implement in those games?

Apart from Overwatch and FIFA, there isn't any particular list. Mostly interested in Open world ones.

Not thinking to max them out, even if they run at respectable 40-50fps at 1080, without stuttering, I am good.

A GTX1060 would be ideal in that case, yes. 

 

What is your budget?

I think I've seen alienware aurora with 1080 go for 1300 or so. Better to get that, no? 

Alienware aurora is a desktop not a laptop. And it's heavy. Like sh*t heavy. Better to go for laptop. Unless you want a desktop then go ahead. All upto you. Not sure if you can change CPU etc in the future

That is a tower, not a notebook.

You can upgrade the add-in components but stuff like CPU generally does not get changed because the motherboard is incapable of higher series chips.

Yup. That's what I said. So I would prefer buying laptop for portable factor. But depends on person to person.
