I need to change my laptop, and I would like to buy something that is portable but still powerful enough to run touchdesigner very well. My budget is around 2000€ (i am based in Europe).
Scraping around, I found the Asus G14 with the following specs:
- CPU: AMD Ryzen 9-4900HS.
- GPU: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Max-Q.
- RAM: 16GB.
- Storage: 1TB SSD.
I also found the Asus G15 with the following specs:
- CPU: Intel Core i7-10750H 2.6GHz (Turbo up to 5GHz)
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 8GB GDDR6.
- RAM: 16GB DDR4.
- Storage: 1TB PCIe NVMe SSD.
Design / portability wise, I think I would prefer the G14. My doubt is on the GPU: is the 2070 making a huge difference in comparison with the 2060?
Also, Asus recently announced the 2021 version. This would come with a RTX 3060 for the new G14 and a RTX 3080 for the new G15. Are these new versions worth waiting?
Finally, would you have any other recommendations? I am a bit lost, and I would greatly appreciate your help! Thank you so much in advance!
