The laptop looks good and seems nice for the price the difference between the two is that the Acer has a nvme SSD which is a little faster than the one in the rog but not that much big of a difference. Plus the ROG has more space but its more pricey. Also, another difference between the two is that Acer has 2060 while the ROG has 2070, again its more money but if your willing to spend it then go for the ROG. The 2070 will give you more power in WoW but not that much from the 2060, it will help more in your video editing and any type of encoding that you will do. Some examples are streaming and 3d renders that you could possibly do.
