Looking for a gaming/dev laptop - Thought & Suggestions
Looking at purchasing a Gaming laptop primarily for gaming and learning game/app development.
I'm currently comparing the
MSI - GX63VR-NE1070
MSI - GE73 Raider-008
(Not sure if this link will work for everyone but HERE to see the new-egg comparison(Don't know any better comparison websites))
Storage is a big thing for me as visual studio alone apparently has to be installed to C: drive which takes up a good 80GB, the bigger screen size also would be good and wouldn't mind being able to play the likes of GTA V on high or close to high settings.
Components marked as follows:
Green - Desirable
Red - Undesirable
Orange - Same
- 16GB RAM
- 15.6" Screen
- GTX 1070 8GB
- 1x 256 GB M.2 SATA SSD
- 1x 1TB HDD @ 7200RPM
- 16GB RAM
- 17.3" Screen
- GTX 1050 4GB
- 2x 512 GB M.2 SATA SSD [NON-RAID]
I am open to suggestions of other laptops but they must follow the folowing specs
Up to $2200
Relatively good screen.
Lots of storage (Min 256GB SSD + HDD)
Don't want it to be laggy (Min 16GB RAM)
Weight/size isn't an issue however the larger screen would be a positive.
This was my other shortlist
