The Acer Predator and it cost just a little more and is very nice. My son has a prior generation ROG with the usual i7, 960m and it's doing quite well.
It is the model GL503VM-ED218T with Nvidia 1060 (3gb), 8gb Ram, Intel I7-7700HQ, 1TB and no SSD.
I was looking for a gaming pc because the one I have right now is a 2 year old Ultra book with i5 7th Gen, 128 GB SSD and 940 mx, but as it is an ultra book I can't play more than an hour before it gets really hot.
I am not like a "pro" gamer or anything line that, the only titles I play is Gta V, Cities Skylines, Pay Day 2, League of Legends, etc, but also I like using Blendr or SketchUp.
I am just a student, and I am not studying anything about design, in fact, I use a lot of data bases so I work with" large" amounts of data in Excel, STATA, SPSS and Minitab.
I am not from an English speaking country, sorry for my grammar
