Linux compatible laptops with nvidia gpu 1000$ and below?

HI everybody.
I've been looking for a laptop for some days now, I have hard time finding one because everything I find one with specs I like users seems to have issues with them when running Linux.
It feels really risky to buy a laptop and then it might not fully work

Do you guys have any laptops you know works well with Linux you could recommend?

Also look at phoronix. Apart from that, fedora magazine introductory "How do you Fedora?" articles give reasonable examples of notebooks used. some of them used may well be available now under $1000 certified refurbished

Why the need for nvidia gpu hardware specifically? these days Intel Core integrated Iris 540 graphics are as powerful as low end nvidia hardware which is all you'd get for less than $1000 new

Dell sell Ubuntu workstation notebooks that can be supplied with RHEL media instead so any of those models are guaranteed to run a supported distribution of Linux

I was most going to use it for Blender and some steam games.

Let's say if I increase my budget to 1200-1300$ and get a laptop with an i7 7700HQ and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti.

Do you guys think I will have a lot of issues with drivers and stuff if i install fedora?

Or does hybrid graphics works quite well nowdays with prime?

a driver issue with the GTX1050 is highly likely at the moment

Intel® Core™ i7 Quad Core Processor 7700HQ (2.8GHz, 3.8GHz Turbo)
NVIDIA® GeForce GTX 1050 Ti
16GB RAM
1TB HDD

Too late for now, but I've bought 4 or 5 computers (desktop and laptop) from Zareason and can recommend their quality and compatibility with Linux.
