Before someone makes a recommendation, I have a comment. A laptop isn't a laptop. When you mentioned the sofa, I was concerned as operating on your lap or any soft absorbent surface can cause the unit to overheat. A Tabletop would be a better name for it, but I guess that will never happen.
As far as the cancer and reproductive scares I've seen, I have no comment.

That message sometimes means street address as they won't ship to P.O. Box etc.

For $500 you should look into a USED gaming laptop, if your sure a laptop is what you want. Gaming laptops hold their value TERRIBLY aka you can get a good deal on a few gen old. I spent 1800 on mine in Dec 2016 and its worth like ~$700
