Hi, I was looking to get a new laptop for school/video editing with some gaming like new titles if possible, I was thinking about either a Lenovo Legion y520 laptop which comes with 16gb ram, i7 7700hq, 128gb ssd, GTX 1060 3gb and a HP Envy x360 which comes with an i7 8550u, 16gb ram, 512 GB SSD, MX 150 4gb. They cost about the same amount the HP Envy is about $10 more expensive. I understand if I got the HP Envy I pretty much have to forget about gaming aside from less demanding titles like CS Go but I was wondering if I could be able to game and do video editing/school work on the Lenovo or would I just have to go for the HP and do everything besides gaming?

I would get the Lenovo, the 1060 is a huge improvement over the mx 150 where as the 8550u over the 7700hq isn't nearly as large. Upgrading the SSD is usually very simple as well.
