Hello to all !

Currently in India on an exchange semester by laptop broke down and I want a new gaming gear, I had a GE60 2PC Apache MSI before that, and I want to upscale a little with a limited budget.
I came across 4 laptops, what do you think of them ?

This is my all-go around laptop, I move a lot for studies and work, and I play a lot, I just never have a flat for more than 6 months so I can't invest in a desktop for gaming and a light laptop for work :)

Price range 1300$-1700$

Alienware looks great but no SSD and a bit more expensive, I don't really no much about processors...

Thanks guys :

nonw of those are great options but if you have to go with one the alienware 15 is the best value performance wise, with the 960m 4gb of video ram doesnt matter as its limited by the bus, so it cannot use all 4 anyways. But my top 2 picks are the lenovo and the alienware 15.

NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 965M

Is quite a bit faster than the 960, so thats why i recommended it. But the lenovo has a great display and 16gb ram.

Isn't the CPU better on the Lenovo ? Doesn't that make for the Graphic Card difference ? + the 8 Gb RAM and SSD

your just gaming right? you wont see really that much if any difference with a i7 over a i5. That means you getting a faster gpu is the better choice.
