Currently I'm looking at two laptops, one with gtx 1060 and the other with gtx 1070. The price difference is there. But is it worth it?

Worth is something only YOU can determine.
Most fast action games are limited by the graphics adapter.
If that is what you play, a stronger gpu adapter is good.

Since you asked the question, I guess that you have the funds for a more expensive laptop.
I suggest you buy the better unit, otherwise, you will forever be second guessing yourself and will have forgotten how much you saved.

The thing is the gtx 1060 laptop is 1 349 dollars, while the gtx 1070 laptop is around 2000, maybe if lucky for 1850...thats why.. Would you personally advise me to pay 500 usd from 1060 to 1070 upgrade? I'm really in dillemma what to choose.

I can not advise you.
Perhaps you should shop around some more.
Rethink what you really need.

Personally, I have never regretted paying more for the best while I have often regretted settling for something lesser.

I tried to find out how much more the gtx 1070 is better than the 1060 in laptops.. but sadly couldnt find anything. Can you help me get a % out of how much the 1070 performs better than 1060? In that way I can try to see if its worth it.

What kinds of games do you play?
That is what determines how important graphics is, compared to the cpu.

Best to find some benchmarks for YOUR games to do some comparisons.
