Hi, this is my first post so I apologize for any repetition or confusion. I am purchasing a laptop that I want to game on and work on through college. I chose a laptop because it's portable and can work where I work. I had a budget of 1 to 2 thousand US dollars and wanted something that wouldn't become obsolete even if NVIDIA 30 series cards start appearing in laptops. The ROG Zephyrus G14 and the ROG strix scar 3 looked appealing, they both have good gaming performance but I didn't want to compromise my work ability to be able to run the newest Microsoft flight sim at above 60 fps. I'm not sure what my work load will look like but lets just say I would want to edit videos for montages and maybe a little 3D CAD. The Zephyrus G14 was perfect for the Work and game, with the 8 core Ryzen 9 4900HS paired with a NVIDIA rtx 2060 Max-Q it would work fine, but with the Max-Q it was limited and even took some work to get Oculus link to work by disabling the APU. On the Scar 3 it seemed a little heavy and the specs were lower for a higher price, The 2019 model with the i7-9750H and the rtx 2070 (non-MaxQ) would have better gaming performance with the drawback of lower render performance, along with a shorter battery life and almost full budget at just $1800 US I wasn't sure the compromises on work were worth the higher price tag and slightly better gaming performance (about 51% better on average). When the AMD Ryzen 9 4900HS is paired with the rtx 2060 Max-Q I don't know if that improves the gpu's performance or not, or if it would be better to get slightly longer render times to have better gaming performance. What I'm asking is is the lower gaming performance or the lower work performance a higher disadvantage.
