Hi all in a dillema,

I recently purchased a gming laptop its a - MSI 17" Leopard Pro GP72MVR So 17 inch screen, 1060 3GB graphics and 7700HQ processor-This cos me £1k exactly

However i have recently seen a HP omen 15 inch but witha 120Hz screen (the MSI is only 60Hz) with 1060 6GB instead of 3GB and the same processor-This is for 1.1k.

Im wondering whether to send the MSI back as it is still unboxed and pay the extra £100 for a better screen although smaller and the better graphics card, will i notice a 120HZ screen on a laptop?

Also considering scrapping all this and just getting a gaming rig to hook up to the monitor and mechanical keyboard i already have?

Would appreciate any advice or comments

Do you absolutely need the mobility of a Laptop? If not, a desktop is way better in every aspect. It will last longer, better performance for less money and its soo much better to play on a proper rig with keyboard, mouse and monitor separately. So if you don't need a laptop, get a desktop for sure.

I suggest you buy a desktop instead of a laptop
