Hello community,

I'm looking to get myself a new gaming laptop. My budget isn't huge: around $850.

After searching, i found these two laptops:

1. ASUS: http://goo.gl/XYHg9
- Intel 3rd Generation Core™ i5 (2.6GHz)
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M (2GB GDDR5)
- 8GB DDR3 RAM

2. Lenovo: http://goo.gl/vyfMp
- 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7-4700MQ (2.40GHz 1600MHz 6MB)
- NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 750M 2GB (Don't know if it is GDDR5, can anyone help))
- 8GB DDR3L RAM

There you can see the specs, I believe they are pretty similar, but I am not all that tech-savy to know for sure what's best.

Which of these do you think is better and why?
Do you think I could obtain something better with my budget?

Thanks in advance

The ASUS has a better GPU, the Lenovo has an i7 which you don't need for gaming, get the Asus. You probably could obtain something better, I'll check for you. The only problem is that all the Laptops are prebuilt, meaning less of a lenience in what you want in your system.

Since you asked for advice, mine is to do a little research on people who are posting here daily with problems on their "gaming laptops" , specifically over heating but not exclusively. I just hate to see people waste their money.

Like I said, listen to other's horror stories. If you're willing to take the risk, great. Otherwise build/buy a capable desktop for gaming. Cheaper, more capable and serviceable.
