Hello, I recently sold one of my gaming laptops and my budget fits for either of those 2 laptops.
I've been using 144hz for over 4 years and there's no way I'm going with a 60hz gaming laptop every again, I narrowed it down to those 2 options where as the price is about the same with different dilemmas.
One of the gaming laptops is from MSI , the other from Eluktronics. Ive owned an msi gaming laptop and although I had a generally good experience, it has a lot of mixed reviews from across the globe. On the other hand, ive seen and heard only good things from eluktronics products, and this laptop in question.
Both the laptops are 120hz 5ms, the deal breaker is that the MSi has a 1070 8gb ddr5 without g-sync + 1ssd and 1 tb hdd 7200rpm/16gb ddr4, while the eluktronics has a 1060 6gb ddr5 with only an SSD of 500gb and 32gbddr4 AND g-sync.
The eluktronics come with NO bloat ware and a windows installation CD and key with excellent RMA if anything happens, which is very respectable for a seller to do , as for MSI, filled with bloat ware and the RMA is border line acceptable (I have rma'd a laptop twice in the past with them, they could hardly pin point the issue the 2nd Rma even though I specifically told them what it was).

TL;DR One of the laptops is from a great company with an 500gb SSD 1060gb 6gb g-Sync 32gb ddr4 NO BLOATWARE but no HDD, the other is from the most popular brand with a shit ton of bloatware and an 1070 8gb 16gb ddr4 128gb SSD + 1 TB HDD but no g-sync.

Many many thanks to anyone who is willing to help me out on this, greatly appreciated!

If it is for gaming then the 1070 is always a better a choice as you can always unistall the bloatware. But as both laptops have a 1080p display I would recommend the one with the 1060 unless you plan on plugging in a higher res monitor.

The 1060 can't really drive a 120hz display. A 1070 can. G sync is important, but the 1070 can drive 120hz easily.

Personally I think you can do better for the price.
