Which one to choose! (Or makes most sense) Definitive Edition TM

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I need an opinion my BOIIIS.
Looking to get a laptop.
I'm aware RTX laptops are coming out and prices will be insane, so...
I'm looking at some used ones with warranty.
1st: 8750h 6 core CPU / GTX 1060 / 16GB RAM / 120Hz G-Sync Display £950 (small plus on this one, it has Thunderbolt 3 so GPU enclosure is possible I'm the future) (128GB SSD + 1TB HDD)
2nd: 6700hq 4 core CPU / GTX 1070 / 32GB RAM / 75Hz G-Sync Display £935 (256GB SSD + 1TB HDD)
3rd: 7820hk quad core CPU / GTX 1080 / 32GB RAM / 120Hz G-Sync £1375 (2x NVME SSD, 1TB HDD)

Which one makes most sense here?

 

I kinda want to stream but I don't know. It would be nice to have that option and quad cores might not be up to par.

 

Leaning slightly forwards the 1060 one due to CPU, but for £15 less I can get more ram and better GPU in exchange for worse CPU. 120Hz screen is also compelling with the 1st one. Enclosure can save this laptop in the future as CPU is pretty much best (for a mainstream laptop not inc. i9)

 

3rd one basically no compromises but huge price tag.

 

I had 8750h with 1050 Ti but to play The Division at 1080p 60 I had to reduce all to low settings.

No requirements. I want people to see it based on specs.

I'm leaning torwards HP one with 1060 because of Thunderbolt 3.

Not necessarily. 1060, so if this will start becoming underwhelming in games I could stick in graphics amplifier with a GPU and continue to game since CPU is really decent.

Others have 1070 in them, but I don't know if they're Max-Q or just 1070. Also, CPUs are not 6 cores, are quad cores instead and are older ones. 6700HQ is kinda old now, 7700HQ would probably be passable and 8750H is something I'm looking for and I'd love to have it together with 1070, but none of these laptops have that sort of combination.

 

So I have to compromise. 6700HQ + 1070 is a good choice? (even though CPU is older) or should I get the one with 6 cores and just less powerful 1060 with options to make it work later on still.

Or just go all the way with 1080 and 7820HK and not worry about both.

 

Another option I found is £1060 and it comes with 7700HQ and GTX 1070.

 

You catch my drift?

If the games you play isn't that CPU dependent and your main usage is gaming, then it might be a good choice. But need to see the price too

 

Also I need to know what models are they

Not really. Every 6700HQ will perform same as other 6700HQ if cooled right. They are all Clevo based. Same chassis.

 

I play CPU dependant games, mostly. And if I pick 1060 it will also not play at 1080p ultra or even high, so 120Hz display makes 0 sense. Although, I do like the smoothness and maybe I'll try eSports titles and they should utilise the screen.
