You'll be cutting down more on the performance than the price, just sayin'. Ultimately it's your choice.

The 4GB is on the desktop 960, cause Nvidia is gonna phase out the 2GB version of it.

I really wouldn't worry about the 6GB being too much or anything, cause a 970M is still (barely) beaten by a desktop 960. So it's not like it'll dwarf a desktop GPU by any means.

It confuses me a little bit though, why some mobile GPUs have more VRAM than their desktop counterparts. A 980M has 8GB.

Then again it is kinda nice future proof wise. My 780M has 4GB, so I can still run ultra textures and shit, which I wouldn't otherwise do on a desktop 780.

That and the number of possible combinations for one single model of laptop is just overwhelming.
Seriously the Aspire V Nitro has HDD, SSHD, SSD, SSD+HDD for storage; the Ghost Pro has similar configs for both the Broadwell and the Skylake i7, even though they perform pretty much the same.
And my criteria for the chart were pretty restrictive, there are a lot more for each model than what I listed.

The laptop market is such a weird market, I just don't get it.

And then people ask "what brand is your laptop ?" => topkek

Anyways, once again, thanks a lot sniffy ! I'll probably go with the Ghost Pro.

Yeah, the laptop market is a very tricky one. Tons of combinations, but not as customizable without being extra expensive.

Apart from if they have a general bad or good quality about them, brands mean fuck all at this point.

I do like how MSI still does a lot of whitebooks (without OS), which is a big plus for me cause I'd rather install stuff myself and have the choice. And it cuts down the price so much too.

Well, it IS also the lightest one of all in your list. Just under 2kg at 15.6" with an i7 and 970M is absolutely ballin'. So you're kinda getting the best of... all worlds, if you will. That and being much better priced than the Asus ones.

I can't say for sure, but that 960M Crysis 3 run seems a bitplausible. I barely get that FPS on the 780M in my laptop. Also keep in mind the 960M and 965M have 2GB of VRAM while the 970M has 6GB.

I don't use any AA either except FXAA or SMAA, but still I'd say you're better off with the 970M in the long run, considering it's still the same weight.

Jesus christ. You and sniffy need to calm the fuck down.
I'm with sniffy though on the laptop choice. I would've bought the ghost pro myself if i had a chance.

What are you going to use it for? Gaming? Video editing? If video editing is it real video editing or just some personal meme youtube thing?
#45755 - sniffythebird (01/23/2016) [-]
Well, gaming on an ultrabook is a pretty steep requirement. The UX305's are by no means suited for gaming or demanding video editing, though very nice for just simple work and browsing, and having amazing battery life because the Core M CPUs are so low power. Dell is flat out overpriced with most of their products, and I've heard some pretty bad things about their customer service / warranty, so I'd steer clear of them.

Asus and MSI are generally what you want for performance/gaming laptops, though lately it seems the ROG brand has started to carry a price premium.

Personally I'd pick one of these three I've highlighted, preferrably the MSI with the i7-5700HQ and 970M. I'm sure most people know by now that mobile GPUs are a lot weaker than their desktop counterparts, but it's still often underestimated. 4K displays on laptops are kind of a gimmick IMO, not practical for gaming as you'd be doing that at 1080p anyway, and it would look better at native 1080 rather than 1080 upscaled to a 4K display. Some of the Acer models like the 2nd one from the top seemed to have a good value, though I personally would never sacrifice having an SSD on a laptop. RAM isn't a huge issue, even on laptops it's easy to upgrade if you're ever gonna need more than 8 gigs.

Another reason why I'd pick the MSI I mentioned is it's the lightest despite somehow pulling off both the highest end GPU of all, and having both an SSD and HDD. Having no OS is good too IMO, as it really cuts down on the price too, hence why it's still cheaper than the Asus ones with 960M's and 4th gen i7's. On top of that, no worries about bloatware or your storage drives being partitioned in any way you might not want. I'd say it's the ideal combo for a lightweight gaming laptop.

Of course preference plays a huge role here, though I really wouldn't go for a 4K display for gaming. Even if you'll be gaming at 1080p it'll look fuzzy. The GS60 is a 15.6" and even on that size 1080p looks very crisp. I'd take QHD+ or 4K if it was purely an ultrabook for web browsing / simple work, but not for gaming. 1440p at 17" could be nice if it had a very strong GPU setup like SLI 970M/980M or a desktop 980 GPU.

Chill man, no need to wear the letters off your keyboard x)
Though I really appreciate your opinion.

But I'm not looking for a purely gaming-dedicated laptop.
I want a lightweight portable computer that will follow me anywhere I go, that I will use as much as a web browsing device as a gaming laptop (for long and boring day offs) or a workstation (for audio recording/editing or video editing).

4k is good for web (not for the battery tho), 970M is really good for gaming if the benchmarks are right and the 960M runs Crysis 3 on High at 57fps, I reeeeeaaaally don't need the 970M, also when the ppp is high I prefer not using AA , Broadwell/Skylake i7's are good for work.

Like I said, change the cooler, you can get some pretty decent ones for dirt cheap.
One 120mm fan in the front+stock cooler is not fit for a gaming rig of any kind.

Then feel free to upgrade anything you want.
