I would rather have double the SSD space. When games these days reach and exceed 50GB, 120GB is relatively tiny. The 256GB SSD would allow more games to be installed on the SSD. Having games on the SSD eliminates or decreases game loading times. I would also buy a RAM module so the second laptop can have 16GB of RAM. 8GB is the minimum amount these days.

G-Sync can make gameplay smoother. Instead of enabling vsync and locking your GPU's FPS to the refresh rate of the laptop's screen. Get 60FPS and all is well. Deep below that and thinks can get stuttery. G-Sync is adaptive which means the dips won't be as noticeable or you may not notice them at all depending... I can adjust the level of eye-candy to my liking which takes care of the dips. I don't have G-sync on my current monitor and I don't mind at all but I do enjoy gaming.
