Hello, so I am planing to buy myself a laptop. I am going to use it for schoole, games and work. I don't want to spend more than ~1000 eur. For now I have to options:
MSI GP72 2QE Leopard Pro
LENOVO IdeaPad Y50-70 Black
Which one should I choose. Could you help me? Thanks in advance.
If these are the machines you're considering,
MSI (CAD 1,437 or EUR 982)
Lenovo ($ 1,219 or EUR 1,084)
(Scroll down and locate the Lenovo Y50-70 Laptop - 59445918)
- my advice is to go with the MSI. The MSI has the proper gaming credentials, and although 2 GB of GPU is a bit cheap, the 5th gen i7 Intel CPU does a very good job. In fact, you could consider this MSI an entry-level machine with a 17.3-inch screen in a dedicated gaming design.
The Lenovo Y50 in my link above has a 15.6-inch UHD screen and it's pretty much maxed out on the specs. But based on my experience with my own Y50, I genuinely doubt it's going to be noticeably faster than the MSI. The Y50 is essentially a very stylish and capable multitasker, and as such I like it very much. It plays most modern games, but it will struggle to keep up with GTA V and Tomb Raider.
In my opinion you're basically choosing between a "shaved-down Ferrari California" and a "pimped-out BMW 6 series". I mean no offense to owners of either car, of course, but I think you know what I mean.
Best of luck,
