I want to buy a new laptop that I can bring to school but I am also a gamer and want to play all of the latest games on it. I have here 2 laptops and I dont know which one to choose.
First one:
I7 8750H
GTX 1060 6gb
8gb ddr4

The other:
I5 7300HQ
GTX 1070 8gb
16gb ddr4

I dont know if I should go for the one with the better CPU or the one with the better GPU and ram. Can someone help me choose

The one with 8GB ram will handle most games, but some (e.g., Star Citizen) will want 16GB ram. Even if you ignore that one with the 1070 having the better GPU the I5 will still be able to run things requiring more ram. Can you get the one with the 1060 GPU with 16GB ram?

I would go for the i5/1070 laptop. It has beefier specs albeit the processor. However, that i5 is overclockable so you can push out extra performance
