I’m looking to maybe change my MacBook Pro for a better laptop m. I’m a 3D character modeling and concept artist and will be majorly working with programs like Maya, Belnder, Substance, Zbrush, Photoshop and the Adobe Suite. My question is: since for the next approximately 5 years I’ll be very mobile and will not be able to get a desktop computer, I’m looking into the possibility of changing my laptop for a supposedly better one. I’m working with a MacBook Pro at the moment and I’m sad to say that I’m not met with an outstanding workflow. Would any of these laptops serve me better for the next 5 or so years, will they do a better job than the Mac and is it worth the investment at this point? The laptops: Acer Predator Triton 500/700; MSI GE66 Raider.

Performancewise, it could go either way.

You could spec out a Windows laptop equal or better than a Mac.
Or vice versa.

The software is the difference.

Even though it is 'the same', it is not the same.
Blender/Maya/Photoshop is not exactly the same.

Same functions, different buttons to get there.

And of course, you'd likely have to buy all new if changing from Apple to Windows.

I am student still so I’m using student subscriptions hence why the cost of the software is not a concern. I have mainly stated them since they will be softwares I’m using and was wondering if performance wise someone could advise me whether the investment in a new machine is worth it.
