The MSI has:

- More RAM
- A bigger hard drive
- An extra USB 3.0
- A better webcam
- A better battery

For the same as the ASUS actually because of shipping. Everything else is identical.

Most importantly the MSI has better graphic card. The ASUS model's 2GB 560M is actually a 'gimped' version of the 1.5GB 560M found in MSI.

So unless you want to show off a stealth fighter modded laptop to your new uni friends, there is no reason not to buy the MSI.

The Asus it better functionally were it counts like an Effective cooling system I would never consider any other laptop other than an Asus G series for the quality and cooling.
