I'd be using one of them as a replacement for my gaming desktop because I travel a lot. I'm not looking for the highest end laptop, but one that can play games well (Skyrim, TF2, maybe Farcry, Crysis 3 possibly) and do some light photo editing with photoshop. Thanks though!
I was thinking they would be gaming laptops! :-) If they can game they can photoshop exceptionally well.
Okay so they both seem to have the same
Full HD matte displays
DVD Super drives
Differences (from what i can see)
MSI - 8GB Ram... Asus - 16GB Ram (wouldn't make a difference unless you'll ACTUALLY utilise 16gb, you could always upgrade the MSI if it's not enough)
MSI - 1TB HD......Asus - 1tb + 256gb SSD
Basically the main differences.. I used to have an MSI gaming notebook with the same Dynaudio speakers, and honestly they're the best builtin laptop speakers.. Very loud as well. like really loud for a laptop, real clear too. No experience with Asus sorry!
They're both the same specs from a gaming/ working aspect, i would personally go with the MSI Because i have experience with them. 2 of my local friends have MSI Gaming Notebooks and they love them. I loved mine too!
Realistically you could always upgrade the MSI with the 300/400 dollars you save from getting the Asus, plus it gives you room for getting accessories too!
thank you! I think I am going to get the MSI, the only down side that I see is not having 2 fans. I can't find many videos about MSI, only Asus, but from what you said, I think it'll be the perfect laptop!
