Help! Suggest the best laptop - ASUS ROG GL552JX vs GS60 2PL GHOST

Hi everyone,
Need help as my cousin wants to buy a gaming laptop for casual gaming, Photoshop, illustrator and video rendering work(youtube).

The laptops are pre-owned, both are under budget but gpu varies,
MSI - nvidia 850m 2GB GDDR3 with 16 months warranty left.
ASUS ROG - nvidia 950m 2GB GDDR3 with 3/6 months warranty left.(2 sources)

Katsuo always votes Asus so I’ll follow his lead and say Asus


ShiftySatchmo I’d rather kill myself than vote for Asus

Gaming laptop is fiction. Vote for Asus.

I am on an ASUS GL553 right now, and I have no problems with it.

Artem_Zmitrovich Why do you say gaming notebook is fiction? You just need the right one :wink:
erased I don’t like the ASUS brand … and I love the MSI design … also I think the performance difference between the 950m and 850m is not really huge … wasn’t it not even just a rename? And the MSI still has a 16 months warranty while the ASUS only got max 6 month. On the other hand the ASUS still got a optical drive … so if you still need you might take that one. But in the end the most important point is how good the pre-owner handled the notebooks so if it is possible check them first.

Asus has the better GPU … so Asus :wink:
