Advice on laptop


Oct 15, 2016
I'm struggling to find a new laptop, hoping I can get some suggestions.
I do a lot on my computer and is used as a desktop, I generally always have a lot open and running at any given time from photoshop, to many webpages and also usually a game (football manager) or while playing poker and my computer generally slows down quite a lot I want something that will prevent this and I don't mind going a bit overkill for my needs.

I would really appreciate any advice or suggestions, the few I have come across and been considering are the following but I'm really unsure which is best:
Asus G752VT-T7022T (£1,399)
MSI GT72 6QD(Dominator G)-048UK (£1,529)
Asus ROG Strix GL702VM-DB71-HID2 (~£1,500)

Go with a laptop with a gtx 1060, that should suit you since none of the games you are going to be playing from what you have listed will be particularly demanding in the graphics department.

A i7 6700hq should be good enough
and 16gb of ram for futureproofing.

4k gameplay wont be possible on the 1060 but will playback movies and other stuff in 4k.
