Hey there , so i'm currently in process of buying a gaming/work laptop.
I'll be studying at Uni soon and need myself a mobile gaming station that I can carry on a plane.

So my choice is between:
(1) Dell core i5-8300H
Geforce GTX 1060(6gb) GDDR5
12GB DDR4 RAM
128GB SSD and 1TB HDD

(2) MSI core i7-8750H
Geforce GTX 1050Ti(4gb) GDDR5
12GB DDR4 RAM
128GB SSD AND 1TB HDD

I'm leaning toward the Dell for the 1060 since it seems ideal for better gaming, but I have heard MSI has a much better cooling system and has a better processor.
I've had past issues with a lenovo that was overheating and caused CPU throttling , so i'm just wonder how well Dell's cooling systems fair against MSI.

If anyone could give their opinions and expertise , I'd highly appreciate it.

The CPU will not matter as much to most games as the video card. You can always find an MSI system with an i5 and a 1060 for about the same price.

The Gtx 1060 perform much waaay better than 1050 ti. And the cpu won't bottleneck it anyway.
