Out of interest, what kind of work will you be doing on the laptop?
Both the laptops that you’ve chosen looks slightly aged, but should be perfectly fine for video work.
My overall recommendations are:
Check that they can run the latest version of Windows 10?
Will you be able to add a 24′ or larger monitor for work – can the Graphics card handle it?
(Both Graphics cards are older than 7 years, so do not expect too much.)
Is the memory expandable? (64GB is my recommendation – but anything 16GB or above should be fine, depending on what work you are doing?)
The Asus looks great on storage, but it depends on how much the 1TB HDD has been knocked around. Depending on connectors, I use a Samsung T7 1TB SSD as an external extra drive.
I suspect both of your choices are out of warranty. Which means either keep an eye on how to get spare parts, or when you’ll need to buy another one, maybe a new PC.
You may want to have an external back-up, or some kind of cloud storage.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck – and above all, if you have work for it, or something else to use it for, do not sit on the fence, just go do it!
