Put away your peglegs, eyepatches and hooks. Why not try air piracy[^] for a change?
It's an old game and it may be a little hard to get to run, despite the game being from Mickeysoft. But what could be more fun than playing the air pirate with fictional 1930s airplanes and an airship as pirate ship/aircraft carrier?
I'm running a 13" HP Spectre x360 for exactly what you described, currently about a year old. It was light to travel internationally with and I've had no problems coding on it. I even use it in tablet mode with a stylus for taking notes in meetings since my recall is better with handwritten notes and then I don't have to retype them afterwards for storage!
Does most everything I need it to without complaining. Only problem I've found is that it doesn't handle newer games all that well due to the Intel video card. Guessing if I picked up an eGPU and ran it through that I'd see much better results though.
