I'm looking for a laptop for video editing (Adobe Premiere, After Effects), photo editing (Adobe Photoshop), and some gaming (such as Dark Souls II, TItanfall, Arma 3). I think I've narrowed it down to three laptops, ASUS G750JM, MSI GE70, or Lenovo Y510P. I'm very partial to ASUS products (monitor, Nexus 7), so I'm leaning toward the G750JM. What is your opinion on which laptop I should buy and why?

Thanks,
Aaron

The laptops with the GTX 880M are so much more that the price/performance gain really wouldn't be worth it

Well, the G750JM has the lowest spec of the series. It has 12gb of RAM and a 860m versus what you described was the JZ model. All the laptops I stated seem more or less evenly matched and more or less around the same price.

The Dominator is interesting. And only $100 more.

Also, the Sager seems like a great deal. Good price and very customizable, but that lack of a brand name kind of scares me away. I feel so much more comfortable with ASUS, MSI, or Lenovo. Is that horrible? I'm just not familiar with Sagers and Clevos are new to me as well.

Edit: I designed a Sager NP7358 with a i7-4810MQ, 860m 2gb, and 8gb RAM for $1,054. That's insane. No OS, though. How well does this brand hold up?

Decisions. Now my laptop search is even more complicated with two more thrown into the mix.
