Hello,So i want to know how big is the difference between these 2 because my friend 6 years old pc isn't working anymore and he wants to buy a laptop but i know laptops are slower than pc right now his budget is 2000$ he can build a pc or get a laptop
pc
rtx 3060 ti,5600x,16gb,1tb ssd ,etc (locally) (without monitor)
he can get a lenovo legion 5 (rtx 3070 130w,ryzen 5800h,16gb,1tb m.2)
I told him to wait because gpu prices are crazy right now but he doesn't have patience
He will use whatever of these for editing and gaming
 
If he wants an overheating laptop that will thermal throttle. The PC will be superior in that aspect. Not only that but a RTX 3070 Mobile is like 20% slower than a RTX 3060TI not mobile.

If he does editing he won't want a laptop that will melt on the table.

The only reason to buy a laptop is if your friend want to go to places with his laptop. If not...PC all the way.

Lenovo legion 5 provides a 12 hours without throttling,so 20% difference in gpu what about the 8c vs 6c wouldn't that make difference in editing?

Of the samples they've ran, it looks like the 3070 is slower by about 25% on average in most cases down to 50% in one or two titles.

If he wants to buy a laptop, consider why he wants a laptop.
He wants a good gpu and a powerful cpu if he wants the 5800x he will have to downgrade to an rtx 2060 super but the laptop provides a good combo 5800h which isn't far away from 5800x and an rtx 3070 laptop which isn't bad

I believe you forget the factor that with a desktop you can always upgrade. You can buy a 5600X now and after a year or two go to a 5900X or a 5950X with 16 cores just by swapping the CPU while with a laptop you will have to buy a brand new laptop. As Nemesia already mentioned the only reason to buy a laptop is if you move frequently or need to work outside of your house besides that a desktop will be superior in every aspect.

That’s right i will tell him that,You know it’s pretty sad that he will pay 750$ just for the gpu
 
750 for a RTX 3060TI? That's nothing. They go for around 1400 dollars on Ebay.

I recommend you check some pre-built with a 5800X in it and a RTX 3060TI.

Just make sure the parts in that pre-built is not cheap low quality parts. Like a cheap PSU.
