Does a Zephyrus G14 with RTX 2060 pays off compared to a 300€ cheaper one with 1660ti; lifespan of newer laptops

I need a new laptop and the Zephyrus G14 with an RTX 2060 and 1TB of storage costs 2000€. 
Is it worth the +300€ compared to the version with a 1660ti and 512GB of storage?
Also: there are 2 models (HE214T and HE339T) which seem to have the same specifications (2060, 1TB and 120Hz display) but the HE339T costs 30€ more. Is this one newer or a more advanced version?

I used my Lenovo IdeaPad Y510p for CAD, photo editing, office tasks etc. for 7 years now and the first 4 years were pretty intense usage. Do the newer laptops hold up to this lifespan or can I ditch them after the warranty expires?

get the stronger GPU+storage option. the GPU is much faster

the 2nd option may have the fancy backpanel with LEDs on it

I mean...I could invest the 300€ into a 3080 when available. Thats almost half of the MSRP.
I don't even know if I would game a lot. Maybe when I visit my parents for a view days but I mostly game on my desktop. Also...is a 2060 so much more future proof than a 1660ti considering they are both max-q designs. 


Pretty bad at making decisions to be honest😄

If you don't game on the laptop the type of dedicated GPU is not that important as long as there is one (you mentioned CAD which should benefit from a dedicated GPU). In this case I'd allocate the 300 Euro towards a GPU upgrade for your desktop PC. Unless of course there is a certain use case in which you actually benefit from the faster 2060.

There is no replacement for RGB except more RGB ?
