Recommend a laptop which is portable, good display, backlit and ergonomic keyboard in a price range less than 1500$. It should have i7 quad core or higher, 8gb or 16gb ram, 256 gb ssd or more, touchpad should be as large as possible. Companies preferred : Dell, HP, Apple, Lenovo and maybe asus. Decent graphic card for ml and dl purposes is good but it should not hinder portability.
Maybe Dell G7 7588 is good to you. Product Specification - Dell G7 7588
