Pros

  • Better performance than AMD models
  • Works with G-Sync monitors
  • Two GPU options available

Cons

  • Costs more than AMD models

Though you rarely find models with a Core i7-8750H CPU at varying (often unrealistic) prices, 8th Gen Intel Core i5-8300H CPU models are readily available and priced competitively. Intel models also come with optional NVIDIA GTX 1050 or GTX 1050 Ti GPUs. You’re going to get similar or better performance from these GPUs, but you’ll likely end up paying more.
