Hi everyone

I live in Chile and I'm trying to decide between two laptops.

One has an i5 7300HQ + GTX1050 and the other has an i7 6700HQ + GTX960M

Everything else been equal, which one do you recommend?. The laptop will be used 50/50 between gaming and productivity.

I appreciate you help and thank you in advance

The 1050 is much more powerful than the 960m which will especially be of benefit if your programs use CUDA. As for the CPU, only a few games benefit from the hyperthreading of the i7, but your production software might. Personally, I'd get the 1050 as it's usually the GPU in laptops that become a bottleneck before the CPU.
