I need to buy new laptop. It is supposed to be lightweight laptop for travel/conferences, but also have dedicated GPU for occasional gaming, possibly at High settings. I assume I need at least GT650M for that. Stupid requirements, I know it, but let us not discuss that.
I can spend ca. 2100 Eur.
I prefer 15’’ laptops, but would consider something around 14’’ also. Screen resolution is not that important.
Lightweight mobile means for me below 2kg, and with good battery life (but no gaming on battery).
I dislike idea of drives other than SSD in this laptop, 256GB or 512GB should be enough.
I would prefer not to have any optical drive in it.

I was considering:
ASUS ZENBOOK Touch U500VZ / UX51VZ
but it is not available anywhere I could get it from (this is limited unfortunately)

The new Dell XPS 15 Touch
(15,6'' QHD+ Touch I7-4702HQ 16GB 512GB SSD GT750M B-lit 6c W8.1P64 2YNBD)

MSI GS60 2PE Ghost Pro
(15.6”1920 x 1080 Anti-glare i7-4700HQ 8GB SSD: 2x Toshiba HG5d 128GB HDD: HGST 1TB GTX 870M 3GB 6-Cell 4840mAh 52Wh)

Is there any good reason to pick this MSI over this Dell?

Any ideas of other laptops fitting into these requirements?

But gaming is not the only one criterion here.

Do you see any other big differences here than the graphics?

How about the quality? Dell XPS is from a longer range of products, this MSI is a fist one in this class and is cheaper. Will it be equally good?

the MSI is going to be practically melting. It can't use all its power whilst on battery power.
the battery life on the XPS is gonna be much better, and so will the build quality.
