I'm looking at these 2 laptops and I'm wanting to get a few opinions on which one is better and why.

The Dell looks to have a better Graphics card ,and the Asus seems to have a better processor.

the link to the Asus:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0146DD02G?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

specs:
ASUS K501UX-AH71 15.6" FHD (19201080), matte, Black / Silver (metal), Intel Core i7-6500U 2.5GHz (Turbo up to 3.1GHz) Sky lake, 256GB SSD, NVidia GTX950M 2GB GDDR3, 802.11AC, Bluetooth 4.0, Windows 10 (64bit)

Link to Dell:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015PYYDMQ?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_2&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

specs:
ntel i5-6300HQ 2.3 GHz Quad-Core (6M Cache, Turbo up to 3.2 GHz)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4GB GDDR5
8 GB DDR3L / 256 GB Solid-State Drive
15.6-Inch FHD IPS, Wide-Angle, Anti Glare Screen

The Dell has access panels for HD and Mem where as the Asus does not. This is not a deal breaker as I do not have any fears about opening PCs up.

The Asus also comes with a 1 yr accident warranty which is kind of nice.

The Dell has a quad core CPU while the Asus only has a dual core CPU. Plus the GTX 960m is a lot more powerful than the GTX 950m especially considering the Asus laptop only uses DDR3 VRAM instead of DDR5 VRAM for the graphics chip. That alone imposes around a 15% - 20% performance penalty, then you need to take into consideration the GTX 950 is a weaker GPU.
