I'm stuck on what to go for between the these two laptops and would greatly appreciate your views and opinions and advice. I'm going to be using it for just above casual gaming on games such as Guild Wars 2 and Skyrim, and of course Word for homework and assigments.

Core i7-2670QM / GeForce GT 650M / 1920x1080 is quite a bit higher performance gaming notebook. Isn't there a 15" version of the same specs?
