Hello all,
I am trying to purchase a laptop since its due for an upgrade.
I've managed to pick out 2 laptops of my interest and was wondering if you guys can give me some advice
on which laptop would be good for me.

https://www.newegg.com/royal-blue-asus-zenbook-15-ux534ftc-nh77-gaming-entertainment/p/N82E16834235471

From what I can see, they are both
-15.6 in laptop
-I7 10510U at 1.8 Ghz processor
-16gb RAM with 1TB SSD
-Dedicated graphics card GeForce GTX 1650 Max-Q
-Windows 10 Pro/Home
-Both released May 2020

Their differences are
-Asus has 4K/UHD 3840x2160 // MSI is 1920x1080
-Asus has 16 GB LPDDR3 // MSI has 16GB DDR4 (I've seen that LPDDR3 has lower latency but -its somewhat outdated compared to DDR4)
-Asus does not have thunderbolt charging// MSI does (how critical is this when it comes to charging?)
-Asus has 802.11 ax Wireless LAN// MSI has AX021 (2x2 ax) (not sure what this is but as long as they are both compatible with 2.4ghz and 5ghz wifi)

My main concern is the DDR4 vs LPDDR3, is the LPDDR3 laptop specific?
Would buying LPDDR3 be a bad choice since its successor DDR4 came out and even DDR5 is available but not yet for laptops
Only articles I've found was DDR4 vs DDR3 wasn't sure if LPDDR3 would fit under DDR3 criteria

I would be mainly using my laptop with a monitor for dual screen for streaming/ very light gaming (1650 Max-Q would suffice) and I tend to have multiple Google Chrome tabs opened when working. I would be carrying my laptop often my workplace and other areas in order to work.

I would appreciate any feedback and hopefully you guys can guide me in the right direction.

Thank you very much in advance.

The DDR3 laptop would be kept to one corner if you're asking us to decide between the two, since DDR4 ram at the same speeds as DDR3 will still be faster than even the highest overclocked DDR3 ram kit. I'd pick the MSI(only because that's the only other option here).
