Lenovo gaming laptops have cooling issues. So that's outta the equation. The HP laptop is good but if it was me id choose a Omen gaming laptop. Get either a MSI GL62M 7RDX/7REX or a Acer Nitro AN15 with an i5-7300HQ, GTX 1050 4GB, 8GB RAM, a 128GB SSD and 1TB storage. Also the screen is FHD, 60Hz and it's enough for everything you wanna play, even PUBG.

Thank you all for your answers!
I didn't buy any of them! I thought it would be wiser to wait for 2-3 months for price drops so that I can get a better machine for the same amount of money!
Thanks again!

What cooling issues? Could you elaborate on this further? I had a Lenovo Y series for 5 years and never had a single issue with it.

I also own two Lenovo Thinkpad laptops, and neither has "cooling issues;" one has a R7 370 in it, although I don't play a lot of games on it. It is very hard to beat the durability of the Thinkpad line. Those are their business machines (although some have gaming cards), whereas the cheaper Ideapad are targeted to consumers. I rarely need an optical drive, but there are always external options.

12 GB
256GB SSD + 1TB HDD
GTX 1050 4GB
17" FHD IPS
Windows 10 Home 64 bit
optical drive

999 euros!!!

^That's a nice-looking machine. If your need for portability includes long battery life, you might want a smaller screen, but then I don't know how good your eyes are (FHD on a 15" screen is getting difficult for me).

It's a shame that the term "laptop" was selected, when the possibility of clothing blocking vents is so high for most "laptops" actually used in a lap.

Wow, that is a bargain for that kind of laptop. My laptop has very similar specs and I paid $1500 for it.
