Hey guys I'm looking for a new laptop for university and some occasional light gaming (Dota 2)

Currently deciding between:

ASUS Vivobook V551LB-CJ162H $849

Asus F550LB-XO145H $925

If I chose the $925 option I would have a i7 4500U and an extra 4GB of ram, however I would be losing an SSD and touch screen option. I couldn't find many reviews on the Asus F550LB-XO145H so I'm unsure about the build quality.

For my purposes would it be worth paying the extra $75 and forfeiting a touch screen and SSD?

I'm open to any suggestions of laptops and advice.

The Vivo Book V551LB-CJ162H, has 1 slot open for ram expansion. (you could add another 4gb for ~ $40 US)

Will the touch screen be something important to you? Do you need the extra horsepower of the i7? The ssd will obviously give you faster boot times.

I've used many asus products over the years(MB's and now tablets) and they generally havent disappointed. The specs on that particular laptop look very nice.
