Looking at purchasing a new laptop and narrowed it down to two. I know one of them is not Asus but same specs. I will use this mostly for Gaming and music. Please let me know if and which one of these will run World of Warcraft graphics.

#1. Asus ROG 15.6" G551JX http://www.asus.com/Notebooks/G551JX/specifications/
or
#2. MSI GP60 Leopard Pro-825 15.6" http://us.msi.com/product/nb/GP60-Leopard-Pro-GTX-950M.html#hero-specification

They both have similar hardware. Please help me decide.

Thanks!!!

Hmmm... They're both very, very similar when it comes to hardware; almost identical so it's going to come down to how efficient they are at keeping cool and how aesthetically pleasing each of them is, and I think that Asus win hands down in these two categories. I assume that if you're making music you'll be using headphones or external speakers so you won't be interested in how good the laptop speakers are? I ask this as I've heard that MSI laptops have fairly decent sound, so that may be a plus point.

I went through a similar thing myself recently and whittled down a list of five potential laptop models down to Asus G751 through reading tonnes of reviews, but as both of these laptops are so similar you could literally just flip a coin.
