Hey, so I've been looking for a laptop around 1k for a while now, and I'm stuck between 2 laptops specifically

ASUS Vivobook Pro 15 OLED M3500QC
RTX 3050 (35 watt TDP ) (50 watt overclocked)
16GB Ram at 3200
Ryzen 5 5600H
DCI-P3 100% Color Range
512GB nvme storage
1080p display

vs

Acer Swift X SFX14-41G
RTX 3050 (35 watt TDP)
16GB RAM at 3200
Ryzen 5 5600H
sRGB 100%
1TB Nvme storage
1080p display

Both are very similar in price (10 dollar difference more or less)

Can you help me pick one of the two or give me better recommendations?

Note :
Laptop preferably has a good display with good color gamut (preferrably a good resolution over 1080p), 16GB of memory, and a 3050


Thank you

The Asus's selling point would be the OLED display, which would be much better in terms of display quality. If you factor in that both laptop's storage can be upgraded, I'd get the Asus one. If you want everything out-of-the-box, then get the Acer but it's not an OLED panel. Primary use for this laptop, might I ask?

I'll be using this laptop (sooner or later) when I get into uni for engineering in about 3 years? I mean electrical engineering in itsself don't need any good specs or such but I'm planning on doing some light designing and maybe editing with it, music production, and also light gaming

oh and I don't mind getting storage upgrades in the future, I was looking for one with a 2,8k display too but the problem is with the vivobook or the acer is that both (the 2,8k variant) don't have a 3050 or have 8GB RAM that's unupgradable
