Hi everybody.

Let me preface this by saying I have zero clue where to post this anyway...
*ahem*
As you can see by my username, I'm in the running for a new laptop. I've successfully narrowed it down between two, but after looking over the specs and googling for some reviews, It's almost made the decision more difficult..

These are the two laptops I've been eyeing. Yes, it's because they're both on sale. Anyway, my main concerns are that the MSI one, despite having a newer 1050 and 7th gen CPU, comes with only 2gb of VRAM... However, it IS MSI who are probably a more trustworthy brand than Dell, and it comes equipped with a lot more SSD space. Storage is not a very big thing for me, as I've never owned an SSD in my Desktop. I will primarily be using the laptop for mid-high intensive gaming and writing college assignments.

If anyone owns one of these, can I get some thoughts? Or even if someone happens to know what to look for/avoid in laptops, I'd appreciate any advice..

If you're willing to pay $950 for the MSI, you might want to look at this $860 Dell (from Amazon US):

Specs are almost identical to the newegg MSI, except this Dell comes with the 4GB 1050 card.

Thanks for the reply.
The MSI one actually had a $150 rebate so it would have been the same price as the first Dell! However, I think you've found me the best of both worlds!!!!! Thank you very, very much!
