I realize that they're both in different size categories, however they're both essentially the same price and performance.
*Using Newegg for specs Canada Computers has a better price on the ASUS Laptop
I was hoping that someone could share some opinions on the MSI laptops, customer service or this laptop in particular. I had a good experience with an ASUS laptop in the past (I had an ASUS G74S that I absolutely loved even if it weighed more then my mITX rig and was the least mobile piece of mobile technology I've ever owned), however the smaller form of the Phantom (14" compared to the 15.6" ASUS) is very appealing.
One piece of information that I've been struggling to find however is in regards to the ASUS laptop and whether or not its USB C port is also Thunderbolt 3. The MSI Phantom states on the product page that is has thunderbolt, while the ASUS one has conflicting reports in reviews and on product pages everywhere, does anyone know the truth?
Also of note one of the ram sticks on the ASUS is not accessible.
Lastly, given the choice between them, which would you pick and why?
