BFA kills my old pc

Games, Gaming and Hardware
Looks like i have to replace my old desktop, and since i might go to uni in a year or less, i think a laptop will work both ways, a portable way to study and a gaming station
Just want some advice on a gaming laptop
Certified Refurbished Laptops
ASUS TUF FX504GD-RS51
Intel® Core™ i5-8300H Mobile Processor (4x 2.3GHz, Turbo up to 3.9-4.0GHz)
16GB [8GB x 2] 2400MHz DDR4 SO-DIMM Laptop Memory - G.SKILL Ripjaws [R]
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 - 2GB GDDR5 [NB]
120GB M.2 SATA SSD - [R][WD]
1 TB Laptop Solid State Hybrid Drive with 8GB MLC 128MB Cache - Single Drive [PB]

Can any tech smart guy tell me if this is worth the 800 dollars?
The GPU isn't the greatest, for a "gaming laptop" and I'm not sure I'd consider a 15" 5 pounder to be all that portable, but it's not the worst I've seen. It doesn't really feel like a good value at $800, although that's partly because you can get much better specs for about $200 more.

Consider an mITX rig + a Chromebook.
Your second choice is good, but Salhezar linked a better option.
