Hello!
I wanted to get a laptop for gaming, 3D design, movies and multitasking. I found these two. Which one is the better and more reliable laptop in terms of performance, quality, relibility, features etc.

Could anyone please tell me which one is better?

Please suggest any other laptop you would recommend with similar specs and price range

Personally I would pick Lenovo. As a former PC service manager for a major computer retail store, I saw many HP laptops in my shop.

Do you need laptop for its mobility? Have you considered a desktop? With desktop you can upgrade CPU and graphics cards. You cannot with laptops. And on top of that, desktop CPU has better performance than laptop CPU for the same model.

Don't forget to burn recovery DVDs after buying the computer. It will be useful if hard drive fails. Important step that most laptop owners don't follow.
