Hi, I've been offered a new laptop through the DSA scheme. The basic choice is below.

There seems to be very little to choose between them. The important specs are identical and the screens more or less equivalent. Some business reviews rate the Satellite Pro keyboard very highly, which drew my eye because I'll be doing a lot of typing. But the webcam isn't so good, and we live in the age of Zoom.

The Asus worries me because I thought they had a reputation for poor quality. Also, I can't find any mention of what it's like to type on. The Satellite, being a business machine, perhaps puts more emphasis on that feature.

It'll be easier to get the Asus. Getting the Satellite Pro will involve some bureaucratic hassle, first.

Any thoughts? Cheers.
