    I am going back and forth on which laptop to get. My goal is to find a good gaming / everyday / photoshop laptop. Both of these laptops are similar in price and are about the same size and weight. The specs are below. I have been looking at every review I can find and I just cannot make a decision. I see pros and cons for both of them. Would love to hear opinions. Thanks in advance.

    MSI GE75 Raider 10SF
    • 10th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-10750H Processor 2.6GHz

    • 8GB NVIDIA GeForce® RTX 2070 SUPER Graphics
    Lenovo Legion Y740

    The GE75 Raider should have stronger performance with the standard RTX 2070 Super than the power-gimped "Max-Q" (and non-Super, at that) version in the Lenovo.

    You might want to save money and opt for the 2019 GE75 9SF Model.

    Most games will run into CPU limit anyway. No need for the 2070 Super version.

    240Hz screen is not needed in most cases because of the CPU limit.

    CPU is basically the same as the previous two generations, no upgrade.

    Overclocking the RAM will give you more performance boost than the 2070 Super.
