New Rig Query

Helios 300 is now 112k + 5k warranty on flipkart. It is still outta stock on acers website.
Legion 5 pro has come and gone and I am unable to find any prebook page on amazon.
Hp victus is looking lucrative at 104k but there are no reviews and too long wait.
There is also the Zephyrus g15 5800hs and 3060 wqhd unit for 136k on reliance digital but they are offering 1yr warranty for 12k.

Should I get predator or victus or wait for legion?
For just gaming, Predator is a safe choice. Victus sure looks lucrative but apparently has a 80-95W 3060 vs 100-105W on Helios which is slated to be upgraded to 115-130W via BIOS update.

Legion 5 pro is a great choice for sure, especially for its display & g-sync, which also boosts fps by 10%. The 10% boost can be replicated on most laptops by connecting to an external monitor, doing this myself.

Could you also explain how this works? I thought fps will be same on screen, in-house or external.

So, most laptops use Optimus or its AMD equivalent graphics switching. So when you are playing a game, info from dGPU goes to iGPU then your laptop's screen. Many gaming laptops (usually not budget ones) have HDMI or mini DP port which is directly connected to dGPU instead of iGPU. High-end gaming laptops have a MUX switch to disable iGPU & connect the display directly to dGPU (will reduce battery life by a lot).
