Laptoo for cybersecurity

I’d like to ask which laptop is better for cybersecurity.
Which one is better from a gamer and student standpoint.

Asus would be the better buy.

If your at home and not going in, desktop is 100x better.

Instead of spending upwards of $2k for one laptop, I’d buy 2 different computers.You don’t need a gaming laptop for cybersecurity unless you plan on doing intensive things like bulk password cracking. You also want your cybersecurity laptop to be light, flexible, and running Linux.

If you want a gaming laptop, then get a gaming laptop. But you’re not going to want to lug around a heavy 15″ laptop out in the field. You’re also not going to want to take your $1700 laptop and risk it….depending on what kind of work you’re doing.

When I do stuff out in the field I want a laptop that’s light, nondescript, powerful enough with battery life, and that I also won’t miss if I drop it, lose it, have to ditch it, or snatch out the hard drive. IOW, disposable if it needs to be.

Any laptop that can run a VM &/or multiple VMs is all you need… VM for Kali or any Linux OS and a few vulnerable VMs to practice on
