Can't decide between gaming laptops!

Hi everyone,

I am looking to pick up my first gaming laptop.

I'm more into AAA titles and RTS games than Esports titles and need to have a balance of performance and portability, as I will have to carry the laptop around to and from work.

I have narrowed it down to the following after the ASUS ROG Zephyrus G15 stopped being on sale here in the UK and just got too expensive for me.

The ones I am thinking of are compared below. I'd really appreciate it if anyone could help me deciding which one I should get! Thanks!

If it's for gaming, I'd probably go with the HP omen due to it's stronger GPU. 1TB SSD would be nice, however, you could upgrade it later on and buy an external ssd enclosure for your old 512gb and turn it into an external drive (if a second slot isn't present). If there's a second pci-e m.2 slot for a second NVMe ssd then it'd be easily upgradable with another 512gb or 1TB if you wanna keep a big gaming library on your laptop. It's rather heavy but all gaming laptops pretty much are...that's why I bought an ultrabook (I don't play heavy games tho). Assuming the price is the same across all products, the CPU's are the same really, it comes down to having a stronger GPU or a bit less weight and possibly less drive space.
