    I have two options for buying a laptop:

    1. Acer Nitro 5 with 8th gen Core i5 8300H, 8 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD + 256 GB SSD, and 4GB nVIDIA 1050 ti

    2. Dell Inspiron 15, 10th gen core i5 10210U, 8gb RAM, 512 GB SSD, and 2 GB nVIDIA MX250

    Which one will perform the best as in fast boot up, launching and running programs, and also which one among these two has the best display?

    These are the performance ratings for the processor(CPU) and graphics(GPU) in those 2 laptops.
    The Acer Nitro 5 appears to win there.

    I'm disappointed that both laptops have only 8 GB of RAM.
    At least 16 GB would be preferable.

    I'm not a hardware expert nor a gamer, so I'll leave you with the hardware/gaming experts here to give you more advice.

    If you can provide webpage links to those 2 laptops, it will be helpful to them.

    Thank you for your reply! I have another 8GB ram with me. Maybe if there's another RAM slot, I can use that as well.

    Thanks for editing post #1 and adding the webpage links for those 2 laptops.

    The Acer Nitro 5 supports up to 32 GB(16 GB X 2) of DDR4-2400 RAM.

    The Dell Inspiron 15 5590 also supports up to 32 GB(16 GB X 2) of DDR4-2400 RAM.

    Depending on whether they come with one 8 GB module or come with two 4 GB modules will determine if you can add that 8 GB module (if it's compatible) and increase the total amount to 12 GB or 16 GB.
