Hello I am student who will be attending my local college to study game development, and I’m looking for advice on what type of laptop I should get. I’ve whittle down my choice of laptop to two choices both are fairly close in terms of price so it mainly just comes down to the specs and what I should go with.
First Option is a Lenovo Legion 7 model : with a AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX / 3.3 GHz CPU, a 32 GB DDR4 SDRAM RAM, a 1 TB SSD harddrive, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 with AMD Radeon Graphics (is that really good to have that Radeon Graphics?) , and comes with Windows 10 Pro 64-bit OS.
Second Option is an MSI GE66 Raider: comes with a Intel Core i7 10th Gen 10870H 2.20 GHz CPU, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 GPU with 8 GB GDDR6, 32 GB Memory 1 TB NVMe SSD, with 32 GB DDR4 3200 16 GB x 2 memory, and Windows 10 OS.
Both seem comparatively similar (I suppose it is worth noting the Lenovo is more expensive but that’s not a deal breaker.) and I’m fairly certain both reach system requirements to real UE4 I would just like feedback on which someone with experience or more insight feels is the superior and prevailing model that would do better lasting a few years. (and before anyone says yes I am aware that it would be better to get a full fledged PC but I need a laptop for easier transportation between home and classes.)
