Should I get an Acer Helios 300 or Lenovo Legion 5?
I’m thinking of buying between these two laptops, both of which are I believe 2021 models. The specs are as follows
CPU: Intel Core i5-10300H
Display: 15.6 in FHD IPS 1920 x 1080, 144 hz
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6
AMD Ryzen 5 5600H (6C / 12T, 3.3 / 4.2GHz, 3MB L2 / 16MB L3) |
15.6in FHD (1920×1080) IPS 300nits Anti-glare, 165Hz, 100% sRGB, Dolby Vision, Free-Sync, G-Sync, DC dimmer |
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050Ti 4GB GDDR6, Boost Clock 1485 / 1695MHz, TGP 95W |
The Legion specs are cpu, display and graphics from top to bottom. Both of these laptops can be configured with 8, 16 or 32 gb of ram, depending on which one the buyer prefers. For the storage, things change. The Legion always comes with 512 gb ssd while the helios can be configured with 512 ssd with an additional 1 tb of storage, hdd or ssd depending on the buyer
For the price of each, with 16 gb ram, the Legion is $1330 usd while a helios with 1 tb hdd $1300 usd. I need the storage since I’m also gonna use it to store my files so if I’m gonna get the Legion, I would have to spend around $100 usd for another 1tb ssd and install it myself
As for uses, my main concern is in csgo. That is the main game I play right now and since I’m gonna get a new one, I might as well make sure that it will perform better than my current one. My current one runs at 100 fps so can both these laptops with those specs run at least 250 fps? Aside from CSGO, I would also play games like GTA V or maybe CoD Warzone. I’m also gonna use the laptop for studies related to computer science
So, my question is, should I spend more money on the Legion 5 just so I can get the mux switch for the performance boost or would the Helios 300 suffice for those purposes I mentioned?
