Hello everyone,

I'd like your help choosing between two laptops (or if you have a better suggestion close to my price range do say so) which are:
Asus Rog Strix G15 &
Asus Tuf Gaming A15
Both cost about 1.200 euro each

Any help appreciated

There are different versions of G15's and A15's, so we need to know the specs of each. Generally speaking Asus makes relatively okay laptops.

Well, the listed RAM on the GPUs is incorrect. If both systems have the 3060 then on most laptops they have 6 GB. I suspect that the first one you listed actually has some variation of the RTX 3050. If that's the case, you definitely want the one with the 3060. Other than that, the only difference I see is that the first one has a bigger SSD, which is good, but a 512 GB SSD may be fine for you if you are only going to have a few games installed at a time.

Overall, the stats for these laptops is fine other than the first one probably having a different GPU that I wouldn't recommend.

My preference for gaming laptops is the HP Omen, which are very good with heat for a laptop. Those should be about the same price if you want to check them out. You might be able to find one with a 3070ti GPU, which would be better, at about the same price.

I found it weird too but it does say 4GB ram, could be an error as you say. Thank you for your suggestion I will check Omen out
