So I'm trying to get opinions on these laptops.

Asus Rog GL502VS-DB71
Display: 15.6" FHD (1920*1080) hardware G-SYNC 160° View-Angle
Processor: Intel Quad-Core i7-6700HQ 2.6 GHz (Turbo to 3.5 GHz)
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX1070, 8GB GDDR5 G-SYNC
Memory: 16GB DDR4
Storage: 256GB M.2 SATA3 SSD + 1TB (7200 RPM)

VS

MSI GP62
Intel Core i7-6700HQ Processor 2.6GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 8GB GDDR5 VR Ready
16GB RAM
1TB HDD + 256GB M.2 SSD
Microsoft Windows 10
Secure Digital Card Reader
Killer Gaming Network E2400
2x2 Killer N1435 Combo Wireless
Bluetooth 4.1
15.6" Full HD eDP IPS Display

I can buy either one for literally flat $1400 and they both have the same specs, MSI Laptop has a full RGB keyboard but I use a usb keyboard so that doesn't entirely matter to me. I'm wondering which is better? I'm thinking of MSI due ot the "brand" Also is it worth it go pay $100 more for i7-7700HQ?

My bad, forgot to put an ITX graphics card and the part picker list didn't pick up on compatibility issues.

I've never used a 120hz screen and I don't care about anything above 1080p, personally 60hz is totally fine. and for $1400 and no tax, I think having a 1070 is nice even if it might be a bit overkill for current gen games in general. I appreciate the suggestion tho and will look into it.

Where does 120Hz come into the equation? Never mentioned it.
I'm saying if you get a 1070 it'll be a waste because you'll have performance you won't use at all.
Its a matter of being smart with your money rather than just because its nice to have.

Well being locked to 60hz and 1080 is the downside so the only upside to get more performance would be getting something higher than 60hz or something higher than 1080p with the 1070. Thing is im not doing heavy traveling so I can just buy a monitor to fix that "locked" issue, having a 1070 will somewhat future proof it for a bit. Overall I'd rather have a computer but I don't have the room for that currently. Thanks tho I appreciate it~

personally i'd choose ASUS as i prefer it more plus it has GSync.
not to mention in gaming Kaby Lake doesnt really provide any significant improvements over the last gen, so i wouldn't worry abt 7700 too much
Lastly, $1400 seems like a really good deal for a 1070 laptop to me, so i'd definitely recommend it

btw the 1060 laptop suggested above is "refurbished" and not brand new
