Hi all,

Like the title says...I've been racking my brain the last couple of days and am stuck with the following products:

ASUS ROG Strix GL702VM
MSI APACHE GE72VR
ASUS GL753VE
MSI GT72VR Dominator

They are all almost the same but that is because I excluded the ones with 1050Ti in favor for 1060 so at that price range they all seem identical.

I never game on Laptop - that's what my PC is for but I prefer a powerful GPU just in case I need to stay somewhere and need to pass some time..(Also future proofing)
I am mostly getting it for development (web & desktop) so visual studio etc..nothing too demanding but the more powerful the better...


Thanks..

Cheers guys
The processor difference is about 10% while the GPU would be more like 50-60% and additionally VR-ready (even if I am not planning for VR at the moment).

Does that make a difference?

Then get the one with the more powerful gpu as games become more intensive very quickly. Also 10% is not that much that you will notice it.

As for gaming gtx 1060 can get you on 1080ultra at 60fps. Its a very solid GPU.
Gtx 1060 vs gtx1050ti
-6gb vs 4gb vram.
-way higher core count - 1280 vs 768 CC
-higher bus widrh - 192bit vs 128bit
-higher bandwidth and 192gb/s vs 112gb/s
Gtx 1060 offers more than 60% performance over of a gtx 1050ti https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/ASUS/GTX_1050_Ti_Strix_OC/29.html.
And for devs I believe you need better GPU .
7700hq vs 6700hq is irrelevant. There aren't apps/games to stores out 6700hq that much anyways.

Acer predator is a very powerful and well cooled machine that you can reliably game on. Also make sure you buy a laptop that has the 6gb version of 1060.
