Lenovo Y710 or Asus G20 CI?

Oct 13, 2017 7:04AM PDT

Hi everyone,

I'm about to buy a mini pre-built gaming pc and I'm hesitating between the Lenovo Y710 with gtx1080, 32 gb ram, I7-6700 and the Asus G20 CI with gtx 1080, 16gb ram and i7-7700.

The first one is 1799 and the second one is 1969. I love Asus so I usually go for that brand but the Lenovo one is pretty powerful for the price, never own a Lenovo before though. Any recommandation here?

Thank you for your time

I like both but the Lenovo is not on my list.

Why? Most of the Lenovo's to date use PWM on the screens and on certain colors it flickers. Since I can avoid that with other makers, my nod is to the Asus.

It's part of the reason they can deliver for less but it's an area I don't like to cheap out on.

That seems to have to do with the monitor and/or gpu drivers.
What does that have to do with a desktop brand?

I had to google the y710 to see what you meant. In that case, go with the lower price?
