hello...im about to buy a new laptop for gaming and video editing...which one will be better and is the asus model worth the extra 200 pounds over the msi model?? also what can i get if i build my own pc build (i need monitor but no mouse no keyboard and no windows)....my budget is 1250 pounds...help
If you need as in need the performance on the go, or if it will help to be mobile then laptop. But from a performance/budget, pc would yield far greater results than a laptop. Laptops are a lot better than they used to, and a 870m880m are very good and can play high/ultra game setting. But those laptop graphics come in around a $1500-2000 price, and a desktop $200-250 card can do the same.
If you need it to be mobile, the asus g750 jm/js/jz models are great. A little more expensive than an msi with same specs, but cooling is the one thing the asus excels at. And I can tell you that video editing on a laptop or anything for that matter is very demanding, and will yield thermal throttling from the msi. That's not a maybe that's a for sure thing, the asus will far much better without any throttling. Yes not as top notch specs for the same price as msi, but you'll get 100% of your cpu/gpu while rendering, vs the msi while throttling will bounce between 100%-50%-100%-30% ect.
But for desktop, average rough guess will yield 50% better specs and performance vs any laptop at that price.
