I like this one. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834231633

The ASUS ROG G750 Series G750JZ-DS71 Gaming Laptop Intel Core i7 4700HQ (2.40GHz) 24GB Memory 1TB HDD 256GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

It has the same specs as the MSI except the processor is a 4700 to the 4710 of MSI but the price is a 250 difference. One thing I've heard about MSI is they are fully upgradeable BUT they have seals that if broken will void warranty. I would get the Asus and replace the 256 gb SSD with a 512 GB SSD from Newegg. In the same purchase I did that with my Acer laptop a few years ago. I purchased a kit with the SSD (fit = Acronis True image cloning software and a USB external case). I installed apps to the 750 GB hd then cloned them to the SSD and moved the HD to the second bay.

I recently purchased an Alienware 18 with 4710 16 gb ram 256 SSD and 1 TB HD 2 Nvidia GTX 860 SLI graphics 18.4" screen fr around 2400.

Well first of all the links you have given don't link to the laptops you have mentioned. Second I would go with the msi rather than the aorus as it has better cooling assuming you are not carrying it around that much.
