What kind of laptops do the simulation dependent robotics engineers use?

My current system is a 5 year old Dell Inspiron with an Nvidia 4GB 920M and it’s sluggish at best while running ROS/Gazebo. I was looking to switch to a better system before the start of the school and wanted to know what kind of laptops do the engineers here use?

What kind of specifcations are a must before making a purchase? Also, is an 20XX RTX GPU too much of an overkill for a laptop that would primarily be running ROS or Gazebo?

Thanks in advance!
