Default Need a decently powerful yet portable 13" laptop, suggestions?

I'm in the market for a laptop, which is a bit of a change for me. The last laptop I bought was a Macbook Pro back in 2010. I went to the Apple store yesterday to look at the new Pros and the prices seem to have gone way up while the features have gone way down. A 13" Pro with barely any features costs more than my Ryzen 7 + 1080ti rig? That's hard to swallow.

So what I need in a laptop:
  • Lightweight/portable
  • Decent power, quad core and 16gb RAM preferred
  • 256gb SSD or larger
  • Plenty of USB ports and DP and/or HDMI out
  • "Professional" appearance, I can't go slamming a ridiculous RGB Alienware down in a client meeting
  • Primary uses for audio, photo, and some light video work, as well as some other office tasks
  • Doesn't necessarily need to be a gaming machine, but it would definitely be a bonus
  • Want to stay under $1500 if at all possible. Cheaper is better, but might be able to swing closer to $1800 for a good machine. And hey, if something under $1000 would get the job done then it's just that much easier to convince the wife.

What would KCSR recommend?
