I'd pick one of these two,

DELL Inspiron 7577
• Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ Processor
• RAM: 16 GB / Storage: 1 TB HDD & 128 GB SSD
• Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4 GB
• Full HD display IPS
https://www.notebookcheck.net/Dell-I....196454.0.html

or,

ACER PREDATOR HELIOS 300

• Intel® Core™ i5-7300HQ Processor
• RAM: 16 GB / Storage: 1 TB HDD
• Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB
• Full HD display IPS
https://www.notebookcheck.net/Acer-P....242962.0.html


The Dell has a better cpu and comes with a 120gb ssd and 1tb hdd.

The Acer has the better gpu but has a worse cpu and no ssd.

Both of them have 16gb system ram which I consider worth the upgrade over 8gb.


I'm not into laptops so I'm not sure what all is out there but knowing what I know about specs I can say out of the 5 listed, those are the best options.

Looking over the parts again, this one looks good too,

ASUS STRIX G502VM
• Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ Processor
• RAM: 8GB / Storage: 1 TB HDD & 128 GB SSD
• Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB
• Full HD display IPS
https://www.notebookcheck.net/Asus-R....187341.0.html


Though it would be nice if it had 16gb system ram. Has the i7, 1060 and an ssd/hdd.
