Take RTX 3070 because you need a better GPU than a better CPU for machine learning-related stuff.

If you want to learn ML and AI, I recommend the i7-12700h cause it has more core and thread. And you can run any game in this with medium settings or even ultra and high in some games. But anyone purchasing a laptop for Gaming then goes with AMD (gamers' choice with more power and 7 nm processor).

Noob, I believe Tensor cores are much more important for ML, so should go for the better GPU, instead of the CPU.
