So, I am looking for a laptop over this weekend (old one broke down) and I think I have narrowed it down too two laptops. I am going to be using this in the classroom as well as in my dorm for gaming (BF4, COD:Ghosts, State of Decay, GTA 4/5, and Saints Row 4). The first is a Clevo p150sm configured as follows from http://:

- GPU: HD 8970m
- RAM: 16gb 1600Mhz
- mSSD: 120GB Crucial M5 mSATA SSD
- HDD: 750GB 7200RPM 16MB Cache HDD
- Cooling Paste: IC Diamond Thermal Compound - CPU + GPU
Price: $1657.00
The second is the FORCE / MSI 16F4 configured as: http://

I know that the MSI/Force laptop is more powerful, but can anyone that has used one of these models tell me the pros and cons for each. Which one will suet me better for in-class? I realize both are beefy, but I will be ok with this as I do not use this all the time during class. Please help!

You do have two quite good laptops there. The GTX 780M is a really nice card, and when paired with the I7-4700MQ, can provide some beefy power. As can the other as well.

Are you looking to play all these current high-end games on Very High/Ultra settings at 30, 45, or 60FPS+? Also, do you plan to do heavy video/photo editing and/or recording, with Fraps or other recording software?

Yes, I am looking forward to recording video on one of these laptops(Dxtory), video editing(rendering), photo editing, and I know that the Force Laptop is better in performance. But, which one will suit me better for school use? And how up-gradable is the MSI/Force Laptop? I know that the Sager has a good upgrading abilities and has an excellent cooling system. Does the MSI GT60 look to much of a flashy gaming laptop? Which one do you think is better for me (school and dorm)? Btw thanks for quick replies!
