Hey. So I'm buying a laptop, and after much research I've found two which are in my budget and have the kind of specs I'm looking for.
One, is the Toshiba Satellite L850 Satellite L850-Y5310.
The other is the Dell Inspiron 15R Special Edition.

Although the Dell has a better processor and graphics card, I'm worried about heating up, chipset problems and durability. Please give me ideas on which laptop has fewer heating problems, and their solutions, which chipsets would be more prone to manage future games, and basically of the two would last long.
I'm a gamer, and I don't really intend to use the laptop for notepad :kaola:
