I am currently stuck between two laptops, the MSI PS63 and the Acer Aspire 7. The Acer Aspire 7 has an "8th Generation Intel Core i7-8750H 6-Core Processor (Up to 4.1GHz)" while the MSI PS63 has a "Processor: Intel Core i7-8565U Quad Core Processor (8MB Cache, 1.8GHz-4.6GHz) 15W." I plan on using a laptop for Unity, AutoDesk programs like Inventor, programming, and some light gaming. The PS63 is lighter than the Acer aspire 7, which is why I'm leaning towards the PS63 more. My only problem is that the PS63 has a lower wattage CPU and is only quad core while the Acer Aspire 7 is 6 core. I wanted to ask if it would make a huge difference for me in performance if I were to go with the PS63 instead of the Acer Aspire based on the programs I use.

I'm in California. I would like it to be under 4 pounds but I'm open to other weights.  3-4 hours min battery would work.

under 4 pounds, open to other weights

3-4 hrs

US under 1000

For your usage I'll go for something more powerful

 

Lenovo Legion Y540 15 81SX000KUS: not HF CPU (which means it has iGPU for better battery life), since gaming isn't primary - 144Hz can be excluded. Just under 5 pounds.

Lenovo Ideapad S740 15 81NY0000US: Ultrabook packed with powerful hardware (1650MQ though) and big battery, but no reviews (therefore cooling unknown). Should be similar to S940 15

 

Let me know if you have other options in mind
