What i want to know is which of theses laptops will be better at playing games. I'll probably play games like Total War: Shogun 2, The Witcher 2, and, Diablo 3. If you guys find a better laptop for under $1000 please don't hesitate to leave a link for me.
Between those two, I think the MSI is definitely the greater choice. A faster GPU, more RAM, and a larger HDD with a slightly slower CPU. I don't know much about mobile GPUs, but I imagine at 1080p the GT555M would help more.
