Long time lurker, first time forum poster!
I was hoping I could get some decent advice on picking a new gaming laptop/school laptop. I've narrowed it down between two laptops that I can pick up for discounted near me:
Option 1: Alienware 17.3 ($1295.99 )
Intel core i7 8th gen - 16gb Ram
RTX 2070 MaxQ - 1080p 60hz -
1tb Hybrid HDD with 512 SSD
Option 2: Razer Blade 15 ($1177.99)
Intel core i7 8th gen
16gb ram - RTX 2060
1080 240hz (I think) - 512gb SSD
Any help would be much appreciated as I'm unfamiliar in the laptop space and deal more with desktop PC's. What matters to me most is battery life, screen, and a little portability. But I do know you have to sacrifice some things for the power a gaming laptop brings. I just want the best performance for the best buck, and something to last me the next 2-3 years. Thanks!!!
