970m hands down.

More so because I would rather have a Quad core at this point, though if you can get rid of the touch screen to possibly bring down the price then that would be golden.

Touch makes Windows 8 pretty easy to use. It made my transition really easy. Now the mouse/keyboard controls on my other computer make more sense.
