Hi All!

So, I have had a gaming rig for some time but due to work requirements, will be relocating to another city for some time. I cant lug a heavy rig around everywhere and so, need to buy a laptop. I play loads of games and may also use it for my software development work, so I need a great laptop!

My budget is $1400.

Now I have done a fair bit of research. For pricing and specs, I have used Newegg and Amazon. I will be purchasing this laptop in the US but will bring it to India and use it here. Along with the ASUS G750 variants, I am adding a MSI at similar pricing too for comparison. Please give me your honest views. If you can get into details, I would really appreciate it!

1. MSI GT70 Dominator 895 - $1399. MRP: $2255. Spec wise it is clearly the best in terms of Processor, RAM, GPU everything.
