Laptop Spec, which one is more worth it?

Q: Laptop Spec, which one is more worth it?


Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX531 GS Version
- i7-8750H
- GTX 1070 Max-Q 8GB GDDR5
- Up to 8GB RAM
- M.2 NVMe PCIe x2 512GB SSD
Asus ROG Zephyrus S GX531 GM Version
- i7-8750H
- GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5
- Up to 8GB RAM
- M.2 NVMe PCIe x4 1TB SSD

So I want to buy this laptop, first I thought that I want to buy the GS (GTX 1070 Max-Q 8GB) one, and then I saw that the storage device is different between GS and GM (GTX 1060 6GB) version.

The only difference between the two is its Graphic Card and Storage Device.

1. GTX 1070 Max-Q vs GTX 1060 (Laptop)

2. M.2 NVMe PCIe x2 vs M.2 NVME PCIe x4
- M.2 NVMe PCIe x2 speed up to 1050 MB/s
- M.2 NVMe PCIe x4 speed up to 2100 MB/s

I wanted to know, from your personal preferences, which one is more better (On the same price)? And why?

Thank you

Preferred Solution: Laptop Spec, which one is more worth it?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


Hi, I'm new here, just wanted opinions on buying parts to buy my own PC and if it would hold up for a couple of years for gaming?

Cpu: AMD FX-6200 3.80GHz 6-core
Memory: 4GB DDR3 1333MHz
Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 AMD 970

I've not included the power supply and hard drive etc. because they didn't seem relevant much.
All suggestions are welcome but I'm limited by a budget of £400.

A:Is this computer spec worth buying?

That's not a great gaming setup, games are mostly dependant on the GPU and the 6570 will likely only play games on low details.

Is the budget just for those 4 components or does it include everything (PSU, hard drive, case, etc.)

I just got a new laptop as a second computer. It has 1.8ghz processor and a gig of RAM. Everything is so stable, not one error yet. My Playstation emulator plays every game with full smoothing on with it's 32mb graphics card perfectly. DVD's are good quality. Task switching is smooth. Menus pop up instantly.

My PC is a disappointment. Unhappy with its performance from the word go, I upgraded its RAM to 2 gig. 256mb of that is eaten by what appears to be the most unstable graphics card in history. I have Vista on this one. I can't start the thing without an error or two appearing. It runs at a could crash any second state all the time, is constantly loading and more often than not has a display driver error. I need ReadyBoost to make it run at an acceptable state! The latest driver seem to fix one issue and break another (for instance I now have less display crashes but slow as anything graphics performance). It does work well for my music apps as its processor allows for lots of soft synths but its support for ASIO is awful. Do you reckon going down to XP will make it an impressive machine? As for DVD's, they are grainier than a bowl of shredded wheat!

So the Flex 5 (15") 81CA's spec sheet says it uses DDR4-2133 RAM, but the RAM in the machine I received is definitely DDR4-2400. That's good, but I'm just wondering what's going on here. With DDR4-2400 RAM installed, does it actually run at 2400 MHz or 2133 MHz? And if it runs at 2133 by default, is there a way to change that to 2400? Per Intel's official CPU specs the CPU and chipset should support 2400. Any ideas?

Go to Solution.

A:Flex 5 (15") 81CA spec sheet RAM data rate doesn't match parts spec

Hi jdrch,
The 81CA does run on 2400 MHz as shown in the general specification sheet, 16GB max / 2133MHz or 2400MHz DDR4, one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket. 
Checking on the general category for Flex 5 1570 here shows 80XB models had the 2133MHz and the 81CA had 2400 MHz. The same goes in the parts lookup page using model numbers 81CA here.
I hope this helps answer your query.

Hello there everyone! A newbee in here and also not much a smart *** in the realm of tech so kindly bear with me!

I have recently upgraded to a new laptop of the following specs:

DELL Inspiron, i7, 16GB Ram, 1 Tb HDD, Win 10 (genuine)

from an older laptop with following specs:

HP Pavilion, i3, 4GB Ram, 320GB HDD, Originally Win 7, later updated to Win 10 (genuine)
(Used this bad boy for almost 7 years!)

I still used my older laptop for work purposes until the HDD in it died on me last week for some particular reason. I have a spare SSD (500 GB) that I am thinking to replace the damaged HDD with. Since I am new this, I have a couple of doubts that I hope you lot in here can help me with:

1) Can I clone the HDD in my new laptop to the spare SSD and install the SSD in my older laptop, given the major differences in specs?

2) If the answer to (1) is yes, is there a particular set of steps I need to follow in this case or do I just follow the steps of a basic cloning process?

3) Assuming I could do the above, would I have to reinstall Windows in the older laptop? I still do have the Windows 7 Home product key that was originally installed on my older laptop.

Also do suggest if you think I should avoid the all-in-all idea of cloning and just freshly install Windows on the SSD and later just copy the files I need from my new laptop.

Thanking you in advance to taking the time out to read my post and helping me out!

A:Copy HDD from high spec to SSD in a lower spec system?

You can't clone a 1TB hdd into a 500GB ssd due to size limitation.

It is also illegal to clone one Windows to be used on more than one computer.

You can just replace the dead hdd with your 500GB ssd now and install its original Windows 7 on it if you have the license.

You can pass the data between computer via a network or USB devices but the operation is not cloining. If you clone something it ends up with a mirror image of the original.

A ssd can be used in exactly the same way as a hard drive. It has nothing to do the high spec. In a higher spec PC things move just faster and the fast ssd is therefore put to a better use.

Hi everyone, Not sure if this belongs here or not so if its in the wrong place then by all means please correct it for me

anyway I had my comp build just over a year ago but when it was built it was considered to be high end, im not sure if its still considered to be high spec anymore but its not performing the way it should. I dont really play lots of games so im not sure how long the problem has been around for but its been in place for at least a couple months thinking back. heres my specs:

Thermaltake 600W Power Supply
ASUS P5N32-SLI DELUXE Motherboard
Intel Conroe E6600 2.45Ghz CPU
RAM 2 x 1Gb Kingston PC5300 667MHz DDR2RAM
HDD Seagate Barracuda 320Gb 7200rpm SATA Hard Disk Drive (16Mb)
VGA eVGA GeForce 8800GTX 768Mb PCI-E VGA Card (169.25 driver)
Vista Premium
LG 194W 19" Wide LCD Monitor

Ive been getting really weird FPS drops during gameplay. CoD4 for example with start out at 90 but will settle down to 60~ sometimes and dip as low as 30~. Team Fort 2 does the same, but it will dip as low as 20-15fps

I just reformatted and all basic updates have been done. AVG also doesnt detect any viruses. I ran 3D mark Vantage (free trial run) and this is what I got.


I was gonna update the bios but i couldn't figure out how. If i don't find a solution by monday i'll be taking it back to the shop that built the comp and see if they can... Read more

Looking for a Dell laptop but the online shop and phone sales are both impenetrable. What I'm after is:
15" MATTE screen @ eg 1920x1080
i5 7th gen CPU
Ideally a supplementary graphics card (though maybe an Intel 620 would do - it's for video creation for web projects so needs decent video performance but not excessively so).
Weight/thickness unimportant. Mid-price budget
Can anyone point me towards a suitable machine, if one exists please. The Matte screen is the number one priority.

I'm currently choosing my new laptop, and I have a few questions :

1 - I won't be using it for games, however I will be editing photos and viewing DVDs and downloaded videos. Do I need a dedicated graphics card for these, or would an integrated one be fine ?

2 - Assuming the laptop is shipped with Vista, and bearing in mind the usage outlined above, would a memory of 1GB be sufficient, or is 2GB recommended ?

3 - I'll be getting an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Would I notice much difference between, say, a T5450 at 1.66GHz and a T7300 at 2.0GHz ? As I mentioned, I won't be using it for games.

I'm not limited by price, but I do want to make sure I don't over-spec the laptop and pay for stuff I don't need.

Many thanks.

This is kinda odd question maybe, but for my sisters birthday the family are clubbing together to buy her a laptop. One of her fave games is Sims 2 and she will need to be able to play it on that. I only know about desktops, I have never used a laptop. Any idea what sort of spec laptop can play the Sims 2 comfortably ? Bare in mind the monitor size will only be anout 15.1 inches (17" at most).

Given that we are on a bit of a budget, would a 256mb laptop be okay ? I know where I can get one for about £180. It has a 1.6mhz celeron I think, I am unsure of the graphics, it is approx 2 years old with Windows XP.

I am looking to buy a new Dell 6400 (E1505) or 9400 (E1705) but would like some advice on a few things.

Basically I want my laptop for internet, music, photo & video editing, multitasking & no gaming & running Home Vista Premium.

I will definitely be going for 2MB ram and was thinking of 120 GB hard drive - is this a good size and is it worth paying extra for the 160 GB hard drive?

Also, I need to decide between the 15.4 inch widescreen 1280 x 800 or the 17" 1440 x 900. I have heard that text/fonts are very small on the larger screen - can anyone advise? Also, is it worth going for the "Truelife" screen considering i will use the laptop for video/photo editing? This is a glossy screen compared to the normal matt screens.

Is it better to go for the 256mb graphics rather than 156mb?

Last but not least, does anyone know if you can purchase an extended warranty with Dell when the year's guarantee is up, or do you have to purchase it when you buy the laptop.

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Well I would consider it if you are going to do some major video editing. Pictures, and music take up a decent amount of storage, but video will bog you down fast.

Well this is more of a personal choice. Yes the text and other things will be smaller with a higher resolution, but if you are going to be using this for movies and the like, a bigger screen will be nicer. However, consider that a bigger screen sucks more power.

is the x64 version worth it for the laptop centrino with 1 Gb ram??

how much speed and better memory usage can i expect?

A:is X64 worth it for a laptop

Hello Ollie,

You can get more of an idea about the differences between 32-bit and 64-bit with the articles posted in this thread below.

64-bit: More than just the RAM

You will not see any gain with your RAM since you only have 1 GB of RAM. You would need to have 4GB or more to see a gain with your RAM using 64-bit instead.

I would say that if you have a 64-bit CPU, all of your devices have 64-bit drivers available, and your software will support and run in 64-bit (most do, but some utility programs may not), then you could see a small gain of performance using the 64-bit version.

Hope this helps,

My Laptop is one year old. My HDD's write speed never exceeded 28MB/s. Now it got drastically reduced to 17MB/s . My Lap takes nearly 90 seconds to reach desktop which is far worser than before . After reading lot of reviews, opinions and user feedback, I have concluded that HDD is biggest bottleneck of XPS 15. Also my HDD goes upto 48 Celcius at Idle and 57 Celcius while gaming .
Some people say that switching to SSD will propel XPS performance to a great extend. So What about getting 200GB SSD for program files and a 500GB external HDD for media files(since i cant have both in a laptop) ?
Please tell me, if you have a better suggestion.

A:Is it worth to buy a SSD for my laptop?

You can never go wrong adding a SSD to your laptop a 200 GB would be plenty for the OS and programs and 500 GB external for data would work just fine.

Hey guys,

I am investing in buying a new laptop recently. I went on newegg and checked out refurbed Core I7 laptops to see which ones are the best for me. I have found these 3 laptops off of newegg that I really like and I am really not sure if they are worth the price. They have the specs I'm looking for, the ports I need, and the webcam that I am looking for in a laptop. I'm just not sure if I can maybe get something better for the price or maybe if these laptops are a rip off. Anyways, here are the links to the 3 laptops I'm eyeing currently.

Laptop #1

Laptop #2

Laptop #3

If there are any laptops I can get better for the prices,please post links. All 3 of these have the specs I'm interested in. The only down side is their weight. If anybody has any laptops with similar or even better specs for better pricing, please post the links. Thank you

A:Laptop: Worth Upgrading?

did you do a 'restore' to factory new? that should get rid of a number of the bugs caused by the previous owner
yes, doubling the amount of ram to 2 gb versus what you currently have would help
and a number of the start-ups and services can be set to manual to help also
this software usually helps some people's units
- be careful when using the program - DON'T just click yes - READ the instructions

Currently I have an Advent 7302 Laptop, when i click view system Info i am told that it runs at 1.73GHz and has 896 MB of ram, also when i look at the C: Drive properties i only have 22.4GB of space left (With a total size of 63.9GB)

Basically i started thinking about buying a better laptop as i was going to buy and download some new games, but I don't think my current laptop could handle many more games. (orange box for steam)
The laptop i have been looking at is Acer Aspire 5536G-744G32Mn Laptop, this website gives a full list of stats for it,

Really I want a decent, fast laptop where i don't need to seriously worry about how much space I have when I download something. I'm not a hardcore gamer, i would only have a few games on my computer at a time.

So is it worth upgrading to a better laptop, or is there no point in spending the money?

So Basically i need to know if it is worth switching from my current laptop to a new one (the one I have linked)
I am also open to suggestions for similar new laptops to the one I have linked.

Thanks in advance :)

Hi there

I am trying to mapping the keyboard for the Linux and i find soooo hard to do this and starting to give up and deciding that i want normal keyboard back,

I changed because last (two past keyboard) which have sticky key of oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo so changed to new one but most of buttons didnt work (well sometimes they work) As far i remember 5 button didnt work.

Decide to buy another keyboard but this time only Space and M isnt working, which need to be mapped.

Im using Acer Aspire D150

Hey everyone,

Its been a while since ive posted here. I was looking into getting the Hp touchsmart tm2t. I love the multitouch and tablet forum that it provides, but it isnt very high on the specs for the cost it is. I upgraded the processor to 1.6, the harddrive to a 500GB and the videocard is an ATI.

I was just wondering if it should get this laptop, or another that is around the same price of $1500.00USD

Thanks everyone,

Here is the specs sheet

Processor and GraphicsIntel(R)Core(TM)2 Duo SU9600 (1.60GHz, 800MHz FSB) w/512MB ATI Mobility Radeon(TM) HD 4550 Graphics

A:Hp Tm2t multi-touch laptop worth it?

The multitouch isn't all that useful. Keep in mind the vast majority of application interfaces are designed with no touch interaction in mind.

That said, I own three tabletPCs. They are only most useful with OneNote and Internet Explorer. I use it mainly when typing or having a screen flipped up in front of my is inconvenient, like while I'm standing over someone's shoulder or at a meeting table.

Hello Everybody in the Community Forum + Specially, HP Employees, Experts and HP's Marketing Executives. HP's UK Online store is promoting special offers on new laptops with £420/- worth of Gaming Software bundelled. But, what about those Customers who are "not into" Gaming Software? do they loose out? Surely, it makes "marketing sense" for HP to offer it's customers a "Choice" that in case some who are not interested in Gaming Software should have the Choice of getting the same amount of money (£420/- in this case) off the price of the laptop if they choose not to take the offer of free bundelled gaming software. When HP was considering this joint-offer with the Software providers, they should have thought of those Customers who might not be interestned in Gaming Software. Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all. Regards,Saeed

I'm looking for a *small* notebook that has gaming capability so that I can also take it, (outside of college) for example, to my relatives or friends houses.

I'm looking at Alienware's M11x, but am (VERY) open to anything else in that nature. Under 14" is very much preferred.

I'm looking at Asus' offerings on Newegg, and their smallest ones are running Intel IGP's.

Any suggestions?

I keep reading it's mediocre in performance compared to many others and i can't afford the 700 series, right now i just have a 5400 rpm hard drive that came with the laptop.

Thanks folks

A:Is the Intel 530 SSD worth buying for a two and half year old laptop?

Any SSD will be a massive improvement over the HDD. You won't notice much difference in performance if you buy a top of the range model or a cheap one other than benchmarks.

The Samsung Evo's seem to be the hot drive at the moment that won't break the bank. I recently got a 250GB one myself and know many other people that are very happy with them.

I am about to buy a new laptop to replace my desktop (I move about a lot)

Anyway I have found two great deals which I'm now torn between because of the price and whether the extra money spent on one of them will really be worth it

?810 Medion erazer 15,6 size

i7 3630qm
gtx 670mx 1.5gb
16 gb ram
full 1080p screen


?1000 Medion erazer 17,3 size

i7 4700mq
gtx 770m 3gb
8gb ram
full 1080p screen

I'm not bothered about laptop physical size, 17 or 15 is fine, so ignoring that, my main question is, is it really worth the extra ?190 for the 770m 3gb over the 670mx 1.5 and the 4th gen i7 over the 3rd gen? and if i did go the for more expensive one, would the drop in ram to 8gb even be noticeable?

I ask on here because my knowledge of gpu's and such are slightly clouded and I have heard that 3gb gpus can be a bit of a gimmick. Also, when I checked on gpu boss the i7 4700 seemed to be about the same performance as a 3630qm anyway

I want to future proof myself really.

I will use it for everything i mainly do in life: Gaming, making music, 3d modelling/rendering (but im not getting a quadro workstation..way too expensive)


A:770m worth the extra money over 670mx in new laptop?

For 190 more i would go with the bigger one. 770m is an updated version of the 670mx, and the i7 4700mq will offer same level of performance but with less power and less heat.

I was thinking of buying the Cisco Linksys E4200 router for £120, my laptop has a built in N adaptor, i was just wondering if it is worth buying a premium usb N adaptor and will it make any difference? Would appreciate some advice as i am a noob! Thanks.

A:Is it worth buying a premium internet adaptor for laptop?

It will still be wireless either way, but the limiting factor for speed will be the bandwidth on the USB port. Stick with the internal.
