Hello, I am looking for a gaming laptop that is relatively light and has decent battery life (when off the charger and not gaming). So far I really like these options

I own a gigabyte laptop currently and after a boatload of problems with it I really don't want to purchase another gigabyte latop. What are your opinions on these two and are there others that you would recommend?

Hello, whats the budget?
anyway, here's some suggestions (these are better, more powerful than the ones you shortlisted, not to mention cheaper as well)

I don't really want to spend more than $1300. Looking at this computer it seems like a great deal. Will the 3gb vram make a difference when playing games like world of warships?
