thank you, i think i was going to go for 16 G memory rather than the standard 8. but im still unsure now between the msi of the ideapad. the ideapad has a better graphics card but mostly everything else seems the same. what are the differences. and as for battery life i would like to have it go for about 2-3 hours of gaming. if possible

No such laptop is in existence. The Lenovo will make 30 min gaming if you're lucky, and the MSI will make about an hour, an hour thirty. The battery life figures I gave you are for the far less demanding tasks like web surfing and word processing.
