ROG G14 or New XPS15 9500?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

i'll start off by saying that consumer electronics are up to 36% more expensive in my country as compares to North America/Europe, so both of these laptops will cost me USD 2000 + . I will be starting college this year and these will be my requirements:

    EDC to classes, Auto CAD, programming, content consumption, and occasional gaming 

Which one should i go for? There are some pros and cons that i found out from reviews of both laptops:

    G14 has only a single ram slot and m.2 slot whereas XPS 15 has 2 of each

    XPS 15 battery is rated for only 1000 charge-discharge cycles

    G14 is obviously cheaper and has a better CPU and GPU

 

Thanks in advance

G14 hands down.

that 1 m.2 slot still allows for upto a 2tb drive.

you can also still get 24gb of ram with the fixed ram which is usually enough.

 

only issue maybe no webcam

its the ryzen 4000 chips they are so power effect. I'd love to compare the new 445 G7 to my gen 6 with a 3500U vs the 4500U both in performance and in battery life

it doesn't have anything left. that chip draws more power than a 9590. intel is just dumping power into what really is 2.5 6700Ks

i mean yeah its at the edge. intel cant push anything more out. but as powerhungry, as expensive, and waste of  everything it is, its still undeniably the top performer for gaming cpus, and apparently that satisfies intel lol
