Thanks!

How would you rate my third link (the Defiance II 14") with the link you gave? They seem to be a similar price?

One concern I have with the Defiance is that I can't find any reviews of the 14" version - not sure if anyone on the forum has any experience of it?

well you got to keep in mind a laptop isn't upgradeable.
only the hard drive and maybe the ram but that doesn't improve gaming performance.
like i said both are good gaming laptops, the defiance is a bit stronger and more portable but idk if its worth the extra 300$.

you got to watch gtx 960m gtx 970m benchmarks and make your choice.

Sorry - which two are you comparing? When I follow the links I see the defiance at £950 and the Apache Pro at £923.16
