Buying laptop for 1000-1350€. Suggestions/opinions.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. So I've decided to award myself with a brand new laptop. I'm planning to spend around 1000-1350€ for it. So far I have come up to two options.

1) Asus N550JX. Specs:
15.6" screen with resolution of 1920x1080 (full HD);
CPU: Intel Core i7-4720HQ @ 2.6GHz (max freq @ 3.6GHz);
RAM: 8GB DDR3, 1600MHz;
HDD: 1.0TB
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M (4GB DDR3 VRAM);
+ other stuff (USB 3.0 and so on..)

Price: 1200€

2) MSI GE62 2QE. Specs:
Screen: 15.6", 1920x1080 (full HD);
CPU: Intel Core i7-4720HQ @ 2.6GHz (max freq @ 3.6GHz);
RAM: 8GB DD3, 1600MHz,
HDD: 1.0TB;
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 965M (2GB GDDR5);
+ other stuff as well (USB 3.0 and so on..)
Price: 1250€.

You can see that they are quite familiar, with the only difference of GPU, of which I'm not sure. Which one do you think is better?
Or maybe you think that these two laptops are not worth their price and have any better options for me? which I would be glad to hear that!
Any suggestions between these 2 laptops or other possible options are welcome!
Thanks in advance.

Yours Sincerely,
Moilius

P.S. The laptop would be mainly used for photoshop CC, various visual programs and a bit of serious gaming.

I would personally spend the extra €50 and get the one with the 965M. It should perform quite a lot better than the 950M in gaming. You should also have a look at Sager laptops. You might be able to get something with a 970M in your price range.
