If you don't mind the size, I would rather recommend this


or this


But between your choices, I would go for G552VW. Much cheaper than UX501 and has 256gb ssd + 1TB hdd. Although the UX has more premium feel with solid unibody brushed aluminum casing, and is thinner. It looks like a shiny MacBook. If there was a G501, I would go for it over the UX501. Similar specs and dimension and looks but with rog color and branding.

first of all thanks for the reply.
First option which you had proposed :
- it is refurbished variant (I'm not a fan of refurbished stuff), even tough the specs are quite good
Second option:
- quite massive in terms of size and price while having not so high specs.

About my choices:
Similar specs, however UX501 has better screen and less storage. As Albert told they might have similar type of SSD disks. It's hard to choose.
I'm looking more for the performance and not so much for the looks.

Sorry didnt know it was refurbished. Ux501 has only gtx960m. Storage is important but u can upgrade it later. Graphics, you cant upgrade. So i suggest look for one with better graphics, gtx970m or better. G752 ips panel have good color production. And vt variant has 970m. If you can find this this one http://www.xoticpc.com/asus-g751jtwh71wx-p-8776.html previous model upgraded to gsync with 970m. There's also a 980m version, the 751jy.

Thank for the suggestions. However, the G7 are too bulky for me.
