    I assume you are a gamer. The Eurocom will more fun to tweak (and overclock) with the unlocked BIOS and CPU, but unquestionably the MSI will have better overall performance. The Core i7 chip is hyper-threaded, giving you 12 threads instead of 6 on the Eurocom's Core i5, and the RTX 2070 is noticeably faster than the RTX 2060. It also has 8GB of VRAM instead of 6GB, which is important for demanding games. Even Rise of the Tomb Raider from 2015 can use 7-8GB of VRAM with higher texture settings.

    Other things to consider are fan noise and overall quality. I can't speak for the Clevo but I have used that MSI. It's not that solidly built, with thin aluminum and an all plastic frame, but that shouldn't be a problem if you take care of it, don't pick it up at odd angles, etc. Its fans also aren't particularly quiet if you are sensitive to that. It's pretty easy to hear them across a living room. I use headphones while gaming so I don't consider it a big deal.

    Gaming with the MSI will be superior until it throttles, not sure how much that would be so you may want to check that . The Eurocom also has an upgrade path and better servicability which will matter with out of warranty defects and if you want to upgrade to something like a i9-9900 and the RTX-2070, 2080 or possibly even better down the road, it is also very reliable.

    Charles is right that the MSi is loud and while the Clevo is by no means silent you could probably do better than the MSI at least with Obsidian fan control that allows you to save different user profiles for exmple for gaming, browsing/multimeida and office work.
