I have an MSI gaming laptop vs a Sager gaming laptop.

They're both around the $1,300 price point. I can't decide which is a better laptop based on specs.

Here's the Sager

Here's the MSI

A few things to note: although the Sager has a newer processer, cpubenchmarks.com has the CPU in the MSI laptop as faster.

The Sager has DDR4 RAM but it only comes with 8GB instead of the 16GB DDR3L RAM that comes with the MSI.

Another thing to note is that the MSI comes with Windows 10 but the Sager doesn't come with any OS. So I think the Sager ends up being more expensive once you include an OS.

The Sager comes with Nvidia's "G-sync" technology but the MSI doesn't. This links the refresh rate to the GPU and helps to eliminate screen tearing.

The MSI has a slightly larger battery...

Experts, please help. What is the best choice overall?

Both laptops can be upgraded, but the MSI seems to be the winner here. Sure, the Sager comes with DDR4 and an Intel i7-6700, but the MSI's dimensions and keyboard are a bit more gamer friendly. The trackpads are irrelevant because when you're gaming you'll be using a regular mouse. So, the winner is the MSI in my book.
