So I'm looking for a new gaming laptop and I've been thinking about the ASUS ROG 552VW and the Lenovo Y50.

Lenovo Y50 specs:
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 960m
CPU: Intel Core i7 4720HQ
OS: Windows 8.1
RAM: 8 GB DDR3L
Memory: 1 TB HDD

ASUS ROG 552VW specs:
GPU: Nvidia GeFroce GTX 960m
CPU: Intel Core i5 6300HQ
OS: Windows 10
RAM: 8 GB DDR4
Memory: 1 TB HDD

I'm also kinda worried about overheating issues, do u guys think one of these laptops will overheat during extended gaming?

Games I will be playing:
League of Legends
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
Call of Duty: Ghosts
(maybe) Grand Theft Auto V

So what do u guys think? Which one has the best performance and will it overheat during extended gaming?

i7 is useful in productivity, but it does not bottleneck the gpu not having the i7 hyperthreading. You wouldn't notice a difference side by side. The lenovo might be slower because it is running more bloatware though.

I find Asus has better build quality, and they don't have issues with their batteries like Lenovo. Also the i7 is more powerful than the i5. "With up to 4 threads under load, the Core i5-6300HQ performs roughly on par with the Core i7-4712HQ (Haswell). However, the Core i7 benefit from Hyper-Threading (up to 25 - 30 percent performance boost) in extensively parallelized software, whereas the Core i5 chips don't support this feature."

Here is a benchmark of how well the machines will do with their 960m.

The thing is, I probably won't be using the battery unless I'm traveling. When I'm at home, I will be sitting with the AC adapter plugged in, and the battery will be saved for when I really need it. You're saying that the i7 is better than the i5, meaning that in terms of performance, the Lenovo wins?
Also, thanks for your reply :)

Even if the Lenovo has an i7 and the ASUS only has an i5? I have read that those 2 CPUs are kinda close in terms of performance, but I don't know...
And thanks for your answer :)
