Hello,
I need advice on choosing a laptop.
Choice 1:
XPLORER CUSTOM LAPTOP
15.6" Full HD 1920x1080
i7-3630QM Mobile Processor 2.40 GHz 6M Smart Cache, Max Turbo Freq. 3.40 GHz
8GB (4GBx2) DDR3-1600 SODIMM Memory
NVIDIA GT 640M 2GB PCIe Video
128GB SanDisk SATA III 6.0Gb/s SSD - 490 MB/s Read & 350 MB/s Write
+ free carrying bag

@ total price $800 + 50 shipping=$850

vs

Choice 2:
LENOVO
15.6" 1336x768 res
i7-3630QM Processor( 2.40GHz 6MB)
8.0GB PC3-12800 DDR3 SDRAM 1600 MHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX660M 2GB
500GB 7200 rpm

@ total price 849 + 72 tax = $921

having only 128gb is fine for me.

I want to play aion decently without much/any lag. my current laptop is horrible. i get like 10-15fps at lowest settings.
I am a college student and want the best bang for buck as well as long term usability. so basically, the best overall package.

im reading that 1336x768 completely sucks and doesnt do the hardware justice. choice 1 has a much better resolution, but at the same time a worse graphics card. however it has ssd for booting times,etc, and is a bit cheaper.

Which should I get??

If you are looking for durability both in terns of build quality and the ability to play games in the future too with greater ease, go for the 660M.
And you can later upgrade to SSD if faster boot time becomes an issue in the future.
Go for Lennovo eyes closed
