Hey Guys ,
I want to buy a gaming laptop , those two have the same price and the same specs except for the GPUs , the acer predator 15 has the GTX 980M (4GB) and MSI apache Pro has GTX 1060 (6GB) , which one do you think is better and which one to buy ?

Thanks in advance

The GTX 1060 also has a TDP very close to that of the GTX 970m. That means it produces less heat than the GTX 980m. Less heat is better for electronics. However, the GTX 1060 / 970m are pretty hot running GPUs. For example, there have been many complaints about the GTX 970m overheating in the 14" Razer Blade. However, keep in mind that laptop is only about 0.7" thick which means limited internal cooling potential.

i wanted to say that the 980M and the 1060 are basically the same, the 1070 and above are better but the 1060 is this generations 980. You would be fine with either of them. the 980 will last years at 1080p the 1060 will do the same. No real reason to get one or the other, as pascal is overclocked maxwell
