    I've managed to narrow down my selection to these 4 laptops. I will mainly be using it for work, as I travel a lot and do heavy gaming. I need something durable, reliable and powerful that will also be easy to transport. I've been able to spec the Sager NP8155, Sager NP 7850, Asus FX502VM-AS73, and MSI GP62MVRX to about $100 of each other (close to $1300 total). I've had amazing experiences with both MSI and Sager and hit/miss with Asus but I know the brand is generally solid.

    Thanks for you feedback in advance.

    If you're looking for a great keyboard to type on, the MSI GP62MVR won't disappoint. Cooling wise, it's good as well, but you mighy want to repaste it in the long run. Build quality is okay, although it could be a hit/miss as well. For this price tag range, the GTX 1060 3GB is the GPU to go for if you're favoring heavy gaming.

    Yet you choose 15 inch laptops . I'm confused.

    I would choose the MSI GT62VR. G-Sync, better cooling than the GP, and also a better screen than any of those laptops. These particular Sager models use low color gamut IPS displays (not awful but meh) and the FX502VM/GP62MVR use low quality TN panels with poor contrast and viewing angles.

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01K00YHMG/ ($1325 at the moment)

    That is, assuming you do want 15-inchers and not 14-inchers.
