Hello people! - before anything: I can't buy a desktop - I travel and move around a lot!

I need some help deciding among three high-end gaming laptops (or perhaps more if you wanna suggest anything). Now, they all have some things in common: at least 256 SSD, Nvidia gtx 1080, 17 inch monitor with at least 1080p, G-Sync, and 120 Hz refresh rate, and a very good cooling system. Other than that, my criteria has to do with price (no more than 2700 USD), that it's not heavier than 10 pounds, and durability (I bought a gaming Lenovo some years ago and it's a 6.5/10). These are the three I'm considering, what's your opinion?:

1. Alienware 17 R4: http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/dell-laptops/alienware-17/spd/alienware-17-laptop/dkcwkblg0744

2. MSI GT73VR TITAN PRO-1005 (I'm not 100% sure that this model has G-Sync, it's very confusing with all their different options) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074XLYVHV/?coliid=I3HJ4045OJDDOK&colid=2XZINC7KE0LVD&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

3. ASUS ROG STRIX Gaming Laptop, 17" https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075KCB7GL/?coliid=I3OFH89984J5R2&colid=FDE5MF3K6IH0&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

4....alternatively, this one, but I believe it doesn't have a G-Sync monitor: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074JH4PTG/?coliid=IB5AOA4TJA6I6&colid=FDE5MF3K6IH0&psc=0&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it

Thanks for all your help!

hey mister skyhook welcome to the tomshardware forum.

are you a competive gamer? else a higher resoltion might satisfy you more.
Also you travel alot, What about a 15 inch display? this would be lighter and more compact to travel with, while still big enough to see everything.

is the laptop all you need? or do you want a good keyboard mouse headset backpack? speakers?

Hello! No, I don't play competitively - I just want something that will really allow me to play the latest AAA games in a very high res without melting or crashing the computer. Higher resolution is not necessarily better in my case, as it really kicks the computer too much (I've read several experts opinion on the matter). Also, a 15 inch is nice, but I don't mind the extra power that a 17 can provide, not to mention the (cooling) space. I'm only looking for a laptop, but many thanks! :)
