So I am about to go to university to study law but I want a laptop that can also game (quite well on medium-high settings in titles like the witcher 3, fallout 4, assassins creed ect). I am currently deciding over two laptops. The Lenovo y50-70 Intel Core i7-4710HQ @ 2.50GHz
RAM
16GB
HDD
1TB + 8GB SSD
Or a Acer v15 nitro black edition.
12gb memory Intel core i7 4th gen (2.6ghz)
2tb hardrive with 60gb ssd.
I have read thoroughly about both. The y50-70 is apparently quite slow with its hardrive and I cannot afford upgrading to an ssd (btw the Acer is cheaper by £30). I have also read the Acer has slow wifi connections. They both have gtx 960m's so I'm not sure.
Mmy two questions are which laptop can run games at better fps at higher settings and Which laptop would you go with.
I look forward to your responses hopefully.

The lenevo y50 will have better performance. It's thermal limits won't be reached like on the nitro due to its thin design. HDD on both are unimpressive. If you can upgrade it, you should. Wifi connections have more to do with your isp and router than your laptop. Either laptop will perform just fine on wifi.

It's dependent upon what speed the drive is. (Large generalisation) Most laptops use a 5400 rpm drive which is slow and still mechanical. Resulting in a slower, louder drive. It will also attribute to laptop vibration.
If nothing else, and your heart is set on the two i'd get an m.2 drive and kiss me later.

This is a link to a live comparison done of the 2 listed and another ROG laptop - http://www.notebookcheck.net/Face-Off-Asus-ROG-G501-vs-Lenovo-Y50-vs-Acer-Aspire-V15-Nitro.147320.0.html

Give that a looking.

If you want me to be frustrating and throw another wrench at you, If you haven't yet I'd even take a look at the Dell Inspiron 15 7000 series.
The 7559 and higher, all come with 960m's SSD + or - 1tb hdd, along with an 8gb stick of ram you can upgrade down the track, if you ever wanna run VM's and whatnot.
http://amzn.to/28N7yQh is the i5 version my friend uses currently. Shit, i think even linus did a vid on it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJPQfWCuxAo


Hope this helps, at least a little.
