Advice on buying laptop (Dell or ASUS?)

My current laptop is on its last leg, and I'm looking to get a new multimedia laptop that's also good for gaming. I'm really stuck between two choices, a Dell Inspiron 17 7000 or an ASUS Q550LF. I could really use some help choosing between the two... Here are the specs:

Inspiron 17 7000:
Intel 4th gen i7 2.0GHz
8GB RAM
1 TB hard drive
NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M (2GB dedicated)
17.3 in.

ASUS Q550LF-BSI7T21:
Intel 4th gen i7 1.8GHz
8GB RAM
1 TB hard drive
NVIDIA GT 745M
15.6 in.

Any advice on this would be awesome.
Thanks.

The 750M seems to win for game results.

Sorry but I take it that a 17 inch means you know you won't be lugging that around every day too.
