Asus ROg Zephyrus GX501 OR MSI GS65 Stealth THIN-068?


Jan 16, 2017
Alright here’s a comparison I cannot seem to find anywhere at all of these two laptops with the current specs (most show the 1060 models)...So right now I sold my old bigger 17” asus laptop. It still was great but I want something smaller and doesn’t scream gamer when I open it up in a room. Thus far both these laptops fit the category of professional and powerful. Here’s the links to both I’m looking at. Here’s my dilemma... the MSI is going to be 3 grand with a 1070, 1tb Nvme and windows pro with 32gb ram.

On the other side weighing in at just over $2800 significantly less cost, we got the Asus ROg zephyrus sporting a 1080 but half the ram and storage at 16gb and 512gb ssd and is not windows 10 pro to my knowledge....

ROG Zephyrus GX501 (8th-Gen) 15.6” Ultra Slim Gaming Laptop, 144Hz IPS-Type G-SYNC Panel, GTX 1080 8GB, Intel Core i7-8750H Processor (up to 3.9GHz), 512GB PCIe SSD, 16GB DDR4 2666MHz with Microsoft Office 365 Home


MSI GS65 Stealth THIN-068 144Hz 7ms Ultra Thin 4.9mm Gaming Laptop i7-8750H (6 cores), GTX 1070 8G, 32GB DRAM, 1TB NVMe SSD, 15.6", Black w/ Gold Diamond Cut, RGB KB, Win 10 Pro 64 Bit

They’re both great looking. But idk if the storage and windows pro is worth the few hundred more in the MSI model. I need some tech help from everyone please!
