    Trying to find the best deal, currently the options I have are
    Asus fx502vm-$750
    Asus gl502-$850
    Omen 17 AN012DX-$600
    MSI GS63vr-$850

    I need this to function for psd editing, music engineering, preferably something I wont have to replace for 1.5-2 years as far as gaming goes

    Whatever is cheaper and has better performance if you're not concerned with anything else

    MSI has the best color coverage so I'd go for that one.

    I care more about longevity when it comes to being able to play modern titles and photo editing

    Generally if you keep looking at your notebooks temps on a regular basis, never drop them or similair, all notebooks will likely live multiple years without problem.

    Clean up and repaste yearly, still have laptops with 5 years+ working as good(or better) as they where bough.

    Not maintaining/cleaning the laptops is usually what kills them, that, and falling.

    Lol I think I'm using the wrong words, I'm sorry. When I say longevity I mean how long a laptop could reasonably expect to play the most up to date games meaning which one of these laptops offers the longest life before becoming obsolete

    they all have 1060 and 6700HQ/7700HQ, all have same performance, the MSI beats the rest in terms of better overall package.

    The one with the best GPU.

    You only listed the family model, not specific.

    There are GL502 VM and VT, the VT can have 1060 3GB or 6GB, the VM is supposed to only have the 1060 6GB.

    There are GS63VR with 1060 and 1070Max-Q, if you drop the VR there are models all the way down to 1050's and 6th gen CPU's.

    We need specific/complete model numbers.

    It also depends a lot on what you consider acceptable/playable, lots of people are contempt with low graphics, some will cry if it isn't above 60 at ultra.
