I have come to two laptops in which I am confused as to which one I should go for, so I will just list them. I did some research on the processor and found it can turbo boost to 3.1 GHz on the 3rd laptop, but I still don't know how the 2.2 GHz would do. Also, how future proof are these laptops?

If you know of any other future proof laptops no more than $1600, a link is appreciated!

Not very future proof. The GTX 560M is generally a bit too weak for 1920x1080 if you are looking to max out the graphics. It should be fine for medium quality graphics I suppose. Of course you can always lower the resolution to 1600x900 or 1366x768 if necessary,

Realistically, if you play games with a mix of mostly medium and some low graphic settings, then it should be okay for about 3 years. Maybe 4 years if the settings were mostly set to low.
