    Hello, I bought the Razer Blade Pro with an extended warranty but Best Buy emailed me a 20% off coupon on the Asus Zephyrus M GU502 with basically the same specs.

    I7 9th Gen and 2060. Both have 144Hz screens and both are 1080p. I do like the extra real estate of the 17" Razer and I like the look and feel of the Razer.

    From what I understand the Zephyrus also has a good build since it's implemented this honey comb design in the chassis.

    Do I...

    A)Keep the Razer at the $1000 premium or
    B)Save the $1000 and just go with the Asus

    I am happy with the Razer right now. So it's kind of hard to decide. I am not familiar with the Asus. There doesn't seem to be any reviews or anything.

    I did already by a spare charger too for the Razer. Which is past the return date.

    Asus laptops look like kids toys to me.

    If you don't mind the smaller form factor, have a look for any Amazon deals on the early 2019 RB15 with the i7-8750 and 144hz panel.

    If you're happy with what you currently have, keep it.

    There is kind of a weird look to them.
