Which laptop should I buy out of this selection for gaming?

Hello, I'm looking into buying a new laptop and I think I've narrowed it down to four laptops, these are for gaming, they need to be futureproofed and able to play almost all games at decent settings for another 3 years, as a guide I try to make sure they can play every single game at at least high settings at the moment, preferably ultra on most games.

http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/ASUS_G750JW-T4042H_1385701.html - This one has a suitable processor and the graphics card is quite good, it has a 1080p display which is a must and a 17.3 inch screen which I would prefer, it's however a more expensive option.

http://www.johnlewis.com/samsung-np770z5e-s01-laptop-intel-core-i7-2-4ghz-8gb-ram-1tb-15-6-metal/p231820498#BVRRWidgetID - This laptop is reasonably priced, carries a strong processor but it's graphics card lags behind, I'm not sure if I can trust the AMD Radeon HD 8870M to play all my games for the next 3 years and I'd like advice on that front.

http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/MSI_GX70_1436489.html - This laptop is strange, it's graphics card is fantastic, an AMD Radeon HD 8970M, fully capable of what I want, but's its processor is poor, the equivalent of a second generation i5, which may have trouble handling the games of tomorrow, I'd like someone to tell me if it will be enough.

Finally the http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=LT-104-MS&groupid=959&catid=1828 - It has a strong processor and graphics card, it is a lot like the first Asus laptop except this one carries a more powerful GPU that makes quite a big difference, it is the most expensive and that is a factor, this is more of a last resort, if the rest just doesn't cut it in your eyes.

Thanks for reading so much, I'd also like to know whether these laptops may be upgradeable, that is if the one you recommend is capable of it or not, like if they can have an extra graphics card added to put them into a Crossfire/SLI situation, or if I can replace their fairly slow HDD's with hybrid drives or add a SSD. I'd like to remind you that a good gaming experience is very important and this laptop needs to be up to scratch. Also I live in the UK if that affects your decision.

Thanks in advance.

    That would leave the MSI GT70 as the only option. Why do you want me to avoid AMD graphics? From what I know I do prefer Nvidia due to the software. Thanks for the reply.
