No shopping service but let me comment that the first unit would be for the gamer. The second will play video and light games but a gamer should never consider the Intel HD chips.

Dell:: Quality has plummeted. I have owned 2 laptops and several desktops. Tried to buy another laptop just too find it wasn't the same Dell I had been loyal too. Case design is extremely poor, admitted by Dell Tech Support. Cooling is insufficient. Warranty prices are outrageous if you don't buy directly from them and an extended warranty is a necessity on their products. Reaching quality support is nearly impossible.

Acer: Bad experiences with quality at my help desk job.

Quality and affordability is with Samsung, Toshiba, ASUS.

Avoid HP, the Intel I7 CPUs (run too hot). Even I5s run hot on Dell.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
