Firstly, sorry if I posted in wrong section. I rarely ever use this forum.

I don't really play video games all that much anymore. Generally I want the laptop to be able to run games like League of Legends and CS:GO. Maybe I might run something like GTA 5 on very low settings. For me, the priority is for the laptop to last a while (couple of years) and be fast (especially internet speed). I will use it for college, movies, music, and occasional video chatting too. I have selected a few laptops but simply can't decide which one is the best pick:

Aspire VN7-591G-70RT Gaming Notebook

Lenovo Z51 - 80K60030US - White: Intel® RealSense™ Camera: Web Special

Lenovo Z70-80 Laptop - 80FG005BUS - Black

ASUS N550JX-DS71T

I have looked up a couple of brands as you can see, but maybe I missed something. My budget is for the laptop to be $1,000 or lower.

I was just reading the reviews and people seemed to be complaining about the "HDD RPM." They were saying that somehow this was affecting the computer speed in a negative way. Is this a significant slow down or what exactly is the problem? Pardon my ignorance.
 


To be honest, I have no clue either. All the info I've gleaned about the Nitro series has been from a couple professional reviews, not customer reviews. Maybe best to steer clear, unless willing to spring for a more expensive model with an SSD, or willing to swap out the HDD on the cheaper model with an SSD yourself.
