I have the Asus TUF Dash F15 with an RTX 3050, and it's a great laptop choice for 2021 – the quality is impressive. However, keep in mind that the 11300H is an older CPU with only 4 cores, so you might want to consider that aspect as well.

Should I buy a second-hand Asus TUF Dash F15 (i5 11300h, 6GB RTX 3060) for $550 (2 years old and in good condition from my friend), or should I go with the new Acer Aspire 7 (i5 1240p with GTX 1650) for $670? I mostly do programming and design work, and I'll only play games occasionally. Since money is also a concern for me, can I go with the Asus TUF, which has a bottlenecked CPU due to its 4-core 11300h, to save about $100? Or should I opt for the latter, which has the new 12th-gen processor with a decent 4GB GTX 1650? Please reply. Thanks in advance!
