    One red flag for me is the "Home" version of Windows. The other specs actually look pretty good to me.

      Yep is pretty close to the laptop I have and that has everything even 1 step older (gen 10 CPU and 2060 GPU).
      Did a relatively large and complex project on that for 4 months without any issues over VPN and RDP into it and didn't even notice I was doing that.

      I would however upgrade to the Pro version of Windows like CADiva said, but you can do that on the Microsoft website for about 100 dollar or so and it takes about 5 minutes. Probably cheaper options too for an upgrade, but didn't want the hassle. You need Pro for stuff like RDP.

      project below.

        Specs are actually pretty good. In 11th gen the 11800H is what I sold. The higher end sku have the same core count but just slightly higher clock speeds. I think some chassis OEM avoided them due to the heat penalty for only ~200mhz.

        Otherwise, Pro version of windows is all that laptop would need.

        Battery size is pretty good too.
