If I had to choose among those 3 only, then Nitro 5. None of them gets my recommendation for most people in general. QHD on laptops is nice to have, but doesn't help much. 1080p is fine.

I see, what would be the budget for entry range & decent 100% srgb screens, and could suggest some, thanks a ton

Close to 100k. Rarely I see some good spec'd RTX 3050 laptops at 80-85k with 100% sRGB panel. Else it is multimedia laptops or gaming laptops with poor thermals &/or build.

This one has 100% sRGB, I thought it was just 16GB variant of previous one. There is screen wobble on Victus when you move it or just its display forcefully, not an issue during usage. I tried out a friend's Victus yesterday, screen wobble is a bummer but else the laptop is well built for the price. At 100k, I'd pick Omen though instead of Victus for even better build.
