so which one is the better laptop to buy? or maybe is there better laptop with better price? thanks.

by the way does PCie SSD is worse or same with NVME SSD?
Both are very good, but i would go for the MSI. It has a newer and better CPU (6 cores). Also, the NVMe protocol is better than PCIe (and the newest).
