Hi guys
I need your help
I'm going to buy a new laptop
I need it for daily usage (movies,music,internet)
And mainly for engineering programs such as( Revit, Autocad,) because I'm a civil Engineering
And I wanna play some heavy games like gta v or Battlefield...
But I don't know what to choose
I have two options
i7-8550U with Nvidia mx150 4gb - 8gb ram- 1 tera hdd
Or
i5-7300hq with Gtx1050 4gb - 8gb ram - 1 tera hdd
Which one should I choose and why?

The combo 7300Hq and GTX 1050 is clearly much better suited for games, since the GPU is much more powerful!
But for the rest of the stuff, the 8550u is a better choice, but not by the same margin as the 1050 vs the mx150.
So, if I were you I would choose the 7300hq+GTX 1050 since the realtime performance in games is dependant on the GPU.
For the other stuff, that it is a bit slower on, it won't matter that much since it is not real-time dependant. That is, it won't hurt your experience as much as a stuttering game (or a game with bad visuals). The final output will be the same!
