    Hi Guys!

    I was planning to get an MSi GS65 before this but I saw the laptop in hand recently and was not happy with it and I was enlightened by my friend on why bezels don't matter after a week and why I don't need a thin and light considering my use-case. and cost savings.

    So I did some searching again and have settled on these two laptops. (also open to other options)

    http://www.hidevolution.com/asus-gl703gs-ds74.html

    what do you guys think is better.
    I also made a Table in case.

    Thanks for replying!
    Yeah, the GT is just massive, not sure if I can carry it to and fro from office & home. Also, the 4 core CPU will affect my rendering times for 3DS-Max.
    But the GTX 1080 is also cool.

    AARGH MOAR DECISIONS :(

    Indeed, so in a nutshell you'll have to decide if you want something more gaming oriented or something that takes a little less time rendering.
