Hi all,

So I'm in the market for a gaming laptop and through several evenings of looking through reviews etc, I have come down to two laptops.

One has a gtx 860m (Asus G551JM at $1499 http://www.shoppingexpress.com.au/buy/asus-g551jm-intel-i7-4710hq-15.6-fhd-gaming-laptop-g551jm-dm169h/G551JM-DM169H#tabs-1 ) and the other a gtx 870m (MSI GT60 Dominator 3k at $1695 http://www.msi.com/product/nb/GT60-2PC-Dominator-3K-Edition.html#hero-overview

I live in Australia which is why these prices may seem inflated, but I was wondering if it is worth it upgrading to the gtx 870m for the price difference. One concern I have with the msi one is that it may be a little bulky for moving around campus, not sure, maybe I'm just being a whimp haha. If there is perhaps a better laptop buying option that I have missed it would also be greatly appreciated if it were to be pointed out.

Thanks
