I have to decide between two laptops so far.

ASUS ROG GL551JW-WH71(WX) Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i7 4720HQ (2.60 GHz) 8 GB Memory 1 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 2 GB GDDR5 15.6" Windows 10 Home 64-Bit

or

MSI GE Series GE72 Apache-264 Gaming Laptop 4th Generation Intel Core i7 4720HQ (2.60 GHz) 12 GB Memory 1 TB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 2 GB GDDR5 17.3" Windows 8.1 64-Bit

both of them are going to cost me around 680 dollars (because of blackfriday sales etc) which i think is a good deal. So please help me decide which is better. I know probably specs wise the MSI is definally better but i have never heard of that company and am very scared about it also the screen is 17.3 and i like big screen but am not sure if i will like it that big or not. I rarely take my laptop places (but still do sometimes) usually i use it on my bed to play games or watch things.my current laptop was an asus and i really had like no problems with it other than the spec on it was super super low but it was a 300 dollar laptop so what i expect. but it never heated or anything...Also i already have a pc but after sitting on my desk job all day i literally cant stand to sit at home and just want to be in my bed. that one more thing i need a laptop that durable and can stand to me on my lap while im using it.

Thank you guyz...i really want to make the right choice and hopefully a laptop that runs for couple years..

I would pick the MSI. Dual fan thermal heat exhaust. This ROG has the heat exhaust vent on the side which is not good (while ROG is well known for their dual fan heat exhaust to the back of the laptop, their side heat exhaust laptop line is not anything special compared to peers). MSI has better spec too.

This is my stupid opinion: the MSI comes with Windows 8.1 so you have an option of upgrading, while with the Rog you're pretty much stuck with Windows 10. Also MSI was former $1000 laptop while this ROG retail price is $800.
