Resolved Question

Deciding between these 2

Hello! In a past post I said that Recently, I have been searching on the Internet and in stores for a new laptop that I need for my work.
I want to use these programs together with varied gaming (light to heavy games)

-3ds Max (modeling and rendering)
-Unreal Engine (Design and programming of video games).
-Any photoshop
-Small video editing

After browsing the stores and stores, my options are reduced to 2 other finalists.

Both have the same price in store.
NOTE: I could not improve any component in the near future

Hp omen:
1060 GTX
8GB of RAM
Does not have SSD


Lenovo Legion Y720
1060 GTX
16GB of RAM
128 GB SSD

What do you think? Thanks: D

Go with Lenovo

Go with Lenovo, you will definitely need that extra 16GB of RAM for both gaming and the programs you want to run, while an SSD will also help with reducing the loading times and improving the overall responsiveness of the system.
8GB of RAM in a computer that carries a 1060GTX is useless and a huge bottleneck.

I've had problems with HP and warranties.

So between that and the SSD the Lenovo. BTW I have the Acer Predator with the i7, 1060 GTX and SSD so I can tell how well that works.
