  1. Hello and welcome to the forums ! :)
    Between those,the MSI one is better because of having a better GPU.
    A decent alternative would be the newly released Clevo P170EM which has a more powerful graphic and costs less too

    Hey thanks for the help! I checked out the Clevo p170em and yea that's def a good rig stock! Too bad I'm stuck using my BB Credit card....otherwise id jump on that rig ! So looks like i'm gonna go with the MSI based on GPU and it being cheaper by 20 dollars less....
