Question

ASUS ROG G751JL Vs MSI GE72 (2QF) Apache Pro 242

I am really confused and I can not decide which model I should buy!

Both have the same price tag of $1299.
But the main difference lies in their specs.
ASUS ROG G751JL
Intel i7 4720HQ
16GB RAM
GTX 965M 2GB GDDR5
Bulkier 4.3Kg

MSI GE72 2QF
Intel i7 5700HQ
16GB RAM
GTX 970M 3GB GDDR5
Lighter 2.69Kg


Main Concerns
Cooling, Build Quality, Screen Quality(Brightness,Outdoor usability), After sales support, battery life(Not so important but at least 3hrs w/o gaming).

I don't care about the weight of the laptop. But the weight and the thickness allows more cooling in which asus is leading the edge. Correct me if I'm wrong.
I'am ready to sacrifice the specs on the msi if their service and quality is not up to the mark.
I have head that msi are worst in their QC.
Please help

No machine I know gets 3D gaming to over 1 hour.

Even my pretty nice y510p would be stretching it to 3 hours no gaming since it's pretty high end.

I see many asus, msi and more but can't tell you if one is better than the next. The only maker I've been burned by is HP.

I would go with the

MSI which should get better battery life since it has the 5th generation processor.
