I am to purchase a laptop today. I have narrowed down to 2 choices.
- An Acer laptop with 16 GB RAM (expandable to 32 GB) and with GTX 1050 4 GB graphics processor.
- A Del laptop with 8 GB RAM (expandable to 16GB) but with GTX 1050Ti 4GB graphics processor.
The prices are almost the same. The Acer has a 128GB SSD in addition to a 1TB HDD. But I am willing to compromise on that IF 1050Ti with 8 GB RAM will give me substantially good performance compared with 1050 with 16GB RAM
- Heavy gaming (2-3 hours per day) - GTA V, Witcher 3, Skyrim, etc.
- Mobile application development (1-2 hours per day) - Android Studio
