    Additional Questions
    Suggested seller I should purchase either laptop from? I saw that I should probably get a cooling solution for either laptop done but I'm open to suggestions.

    Is a 1060 good enough for most games? I don't know if I can afford the upgrade to a 1070

    The Aero 15x seems to be better in terms of battery life and maybe build quality but the stealth is 200 cheaper for about the same components so I wanted to get some opinions on it.

    a GTX 1060 is sufficient for all games on high - ultra settings @ 1080p.

    the GS 65 is an excellent notebook, would reocmmend it over the gigabyte, due to the gigabyte having terrible support. I don't know much abnout the notebook itself, but readiing so many stories about their absolute terrible support is a huge turn off. ALso the GS 65 is actually one of the best notebooks out there.
