Help me choose a laptop!

I want to ask something about a laptop i want to buy. The main use of the laptop is for programming/video rendering/autocad. I have two choices. The first one is the Asus Gl702Vs and the second is the Msi Gs63vr 7rf stealth pro 4k. Both of them come with the i7-7700hq. The difference is that the msi has a 4k screen with a gtx 1060 whereas the Asus has a Fhd screen with the Gtx1070. Also the Asus has 24Gb of ram whereas the Msi has 16Gb of ram. What do you think? Should i prefer a 4k screen with gtx1060 or a Fhd screen with gtx1070??Help me please!

I will not use the laptop for gaming. Just for autocad and video rendering. Should i prefer the Asus with the 1070?

How patient are you?

For screen redraw the 1080 screen and GPU will seem to snap compared to the UHD and one model down. If you are patient then the UHD may be fine.

As always do not buy on spec. See the laptop display to see if any anomaly exists.
