Laptop choice?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I'm about to purchase a laptop, and I've narrowed it down to two choices. I could use some help deciding which of the below laptops to choose, please.

Asus ROG GL502V

Storage capacity: 1TB
NVIDIA GTX 1060
Backlit Keyboard
Screen Resolution: 1920 x 1080 ( Full HD ) WiFi: WiFi Module Built-in
Processor Type: Intel Core i7-7700HQ Operating System: Windows 10
Processor Speed: 2.8GHz


GE62VR Apache PRO-466US

• Windows 10 64 bit
• Intel® Core™ 7th Gen i7-7700HQ Processor (2.8 - 3.6Ghz)
• 15.6" Full HD Anti-Reflective Display (16:9; 1920 x 1080) IPS level Screen
• NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 (3.0G) GDDR5 (Pascal) w/ Optimus Technology
• Full Sized Chiclet Color Programmable Backlit Keyboard by SteelSeries
• 1TB HDD 7200 rpm (Open M.2 SSD slot open for expansion)

Thanks.

Even though I like the ASUS design and brand more, I'd go with the MSI for the simple addition of the M.2 SSD slot.

Seems like the MSI may have a tad nicer screen as well, and the steel series keyboard.

This.

And honestly even though I am kind of an asus fan boy, I have been more impressed with MSI products than I have with asus products in recent years.
