here are the 2 models, if you think another would be better please let me know
$1380 no tax
MSI GT70 0ND-202US
17.3" Full HD LED Backlit Gaming Notebook PC
Intel Core i7-3610QM 2.30 GHz
750GB HDD 7200
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit http://www.adorama.com/MSIGT70202.html
It has a better GPU, but the CPU is slightly worse.
I would suggest getting the first, because even if you were to video edit with the other one, the ram would be holding you back as it only has 8gb. The first one has 12 gb, which is more suitable for video editing.
If you record videos and such, just keep in mind that the first one has less HDD space, but a faster speed. Second one has 1 tb, but a slower speed.
Honestly check out the reviews for each laptop and try to find out any inherent problems with each laptop. Best way to decide which laptop to choose doesn't matter if its got great parts if the thing has heat, battery or other issues.
Also I would recommend the first laptop just by the hardware.
As for the website just buy it from makers site that would be the easiest.
