You could go for a system like this Dell XPS 15 9560 would be very nice as a study laptop that has a gtx 1050 graphics card, 8 GB RAM and a quad core 7th gen i7 processor which put together will run the games you mentioned very well. It also has a decent battery life, excellent display quality and very solid metal chassis. For cheaper though, you could get this **Aspire V 15 Nitro ** which doesn’t have a great build quality as the XPS , but is more powerful, has a decent battery life and looks quite professional as a laptop for school.

If you want an all round laptop, then the XPS 15 would be your best pick as it gives you a much better performance thanks to it’s much more powerful processor and dedicated graphics card among other components. This XPS 15 9560 for $1399 comes with the new and powerful 7th gen i7 quad core processor, 8 GB RAM, fast 256 GB SSD and of course, a dedicated gtx 1050 GRAPHICS CARD. Apart from performance, it does have a decent display, build quality, battery life and overall aesthetics.

I would definitely go for this **Dell xps 15** which comes with a far more powerful and newer Intel Kaby Lake i7-7700HQ Quad Core processor , fast 256GB SSD, 8GB Ram and a solid NVIDIA GTX 1050 4G graphics card. This laptop also has an excellent display, build quality, keyboard and also a good battery life. It is not very heavy either, weighing only 4.4 pounds and having a sleek design. With this laptop you should have no issue at all doing any level f coding and the big plus is that it will allow you to do above the average gaming which means if you are not at home and feel for some gaming, you can.

If you think you want a bit more power, I think you should look above 13” and look for something like the Dell XPS 15 9560 which you can find at various prices. It works well for light and moderate gaming with a GTX 1050 dGPU, and it’s pretty light at 4.0 lbs and has a pretty long battery life. It’s also well built, has a great display, and is one of the top reviewed windows laptops on the market.
Otherwise, maybe look into the Gigabyte Aero 14 for $1700. It’s a 14.0” laptop that comes with a GTX 1060 dGPU which is much more powerful than the 1050 and can play pretty much any game on the market. It’s also pretty lightweight and thin, and has a very long battery life given it’s powerful dGPU. You can also look into the Razer Blade as you mentioned, but you may want to cover up the logo on the back.
If you are looking for something smaller, maybe look into the Surface Book. It will be at the top of your price range if you want a dedicated GPU though, as models with a 965M are $2000+. You could also wait to see if Dell updates the XPS 13 with Iris graphics which should allow for light / moderate gaming.
