I can recommend a used ZBook 17 G5. If you can get it with WX-4170 MXM GPU, you'll get 99% of a 16" MacBookPro, and as far as expansion/ports/thermals, it runs circles around it.
And less than 1/3rd the price

My old 15" has died and I need to replace. I'd like to know what makes and models are the simplest to get a Mac OS on. I have two requirements; a HD 17" screen, and backlit keyboard. I do some 3D work so a good video card would be great too. Cost is less of an issue, but I do have a limit.
You should probably get a MacBook again. For what you want, a pc will cost as much, not to mention the steps for macOS installation.
