    Hi folks,

    I'm looking for advice. Both of these have the same price ($1499).

    Many of the components are the same, e.g.:
    9th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-9750H Processor
    16GB DDR4 at 2666MHz
    500GB Western Digital Blue SN500 M.2 NVMe​

    NP8957-S (CLEVO P950RF)
    15.6" FHD 144Hz, Wide View Angle 72% NTSC
    Matte Display
    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 8GB GDDR6 (Max-Q design)
    0.78 inches thin slim design​

    NP8451-S (CLEVO PB51RC)
    15.6" Thin Bezel 4K OLED Glare Display
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660Ti 6GB GDDR6​

    The slimmer size doesn't really matter to me.

    It feels like the choice then boils down to the GPU. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    The lower power but larger 2070 is going to perform very consistently and has some nice perks.

    Unless you need a 4K panel for something I'd go with the NP8957-S. 1080p/144Hz > 4K/60Hz IMO.

    For gaming that's certainly true and the non OLED will offer better battery life as a bonus.
