Hello guys, I'm a little vague about what laptops should I choose from, so I put my eyes on the new model of Lenovo Legion 5 Pro 16ACH6H but I'm not so good at the components they have. There are 3 versions of this model with different components that are;

Ryzen 7 - 16GB - 1TB SSD - RTX 3070
Ryzen 7 - 32GB - 1TB SSD - RTX 3060

and
Ryzen 7 - 32GB - 1TB SSD - RTX 3070

I wanted to get the one with 1TB ssd rtx 3060 and 32gb but someone told me that this version is slower than the version with 16gb ram, but I can't find why. And now I was thinking about the 3070 one with 16gb, the price difference it's not much, but what do you guys think? Which one of the versions has better configurations?
Also I will use them to play games like red dead redemption 2 and metro exodus. Thank you!

PS: I also watched a lot of reviews before posting but no one mentions about one of them being slower of faster

RTX 3070 can handle new games better than RTX 3060.
32GB RAM can help you run more programs simultaneously than 16GB.

RAM is upgradable on Legion 5 Pro, meaning if you get the variant with 16GB right now you can upgrade it to 32GB may be after a year or so. Whereas GPU (i.e. RTX 3070 and RTX 3060) is not upgradable on the laptop, meaning, if you purchase the variant with RTX 3060 right now you'll not be able to replace it with RTX 3070 down the line.

In my opinion, if there is very less difference between the price of RTX 3070 and RTX 3060, and if you are looking for a laptop that can run new games at good framerates then you'll be better off with the RTX 3070 model. Although it has 16GB RAM, that's still plenty to run most of the new games without any issues. If there comes a need of more RAM in future then it's easy to swap out 16GB RAM stick(s) for 32GB. That upgrade would cost you around $150.
