    I am planning to buy a gaming laptop and I have narrowed them down to these two laptops

    https://www.amazon.com/MSI-GE62VR-Apache-Pro-001-i7-6700HQ/dp/B01IO9Y3A6 - Price Around $1200 - $1300

    https://www.amazon.com/MSI-GP62MVR-Leopard-Pro-218-i7-6700HQ/dp/B01M0COXDI - Price Around $1100

    I am sure that I need a gtx 1060, given how poor of choice it would be to take a 900 series gpu based laptop now. Also I need a 1080p laptop (since I need only a 15.6 inch screen and I feel that a higher resolution at this size is not that noticeable) itself, so going for a higher end gpu like a 1070 is probably overkill for a 1080p laptop.

    The only major difference between them is the VRAM. For GE62VR there is a 6 GB VRAM for 1060 gpu, but for GP62VR there is only 3 GB VRAM and I read that the extra 3 GB is not that needed, at least for the next 3-4 years to come (correct me if I am wrong). Also one more thing that bugs me is the fact that there are no reviews about GP62VR, so I am not sure if it's a good laptop. However the GE62VR has many good reviews online, but the GP62VR is a bit cheaper.

    So given the circumstances, and my current budget of about $1100 - $1300, which of these two laptops would you suggest?

    P.S. On a side note, for my budget, would you suggest a different 1080p, GTX 1060 laptop altogether aside from these two?
