ANY OTHER GOOD LAPTOP IN MY BUDGET?

I would choose the first one based on the CPU since, it is faster, and also has same GPU.

The issue with laptops is that they overheat when gaming, you need to buy an external laptop fan 20-50bucks.
Another issue is the graphics card is not the highest quality type but the gpu in those two laptops they are "good' because your screen is small and its not 1080p.

Do you have any other choices, you also did not state your budget.

Also you are stating that you will keep your laptop stationed on your desk always
have you considered building a PC? You could build one for 900 bucks and have better performance than laptop.

Well my budget is 800$ or 50000 Indian national rupee. I would have loved to get lenovo ideapad 510p which is exact 800 dollars in USA but in India it's price is 70000 INR almost 1100$.

I will buy a laptop fan if needed. Yeah and though the gpu I have got in my budget is okay but as the screen isn't 1080p, I guess I will get better framerates.

Well though building a pc is a good idea, I may have some work in college which is why I need a laptop.

Thanks for your reply, could you recommend me some other laptops on my budget with similar specifications as I have in my two probable laptops??

Have you looked at Asus laptops?? A bit pricer but good gaming laptops as well.

If the Lenovo Y510P is over your budget, you can consider Lenovo G505s, it comes with 15.6 inch, AMD A10-5750M 2.5 GHz, 1TB 5400RPM, 6GB DDR3, Radeon HD 8650G, Windows 8
