hey guys,after a lot of waiting and planning,i a finally getting a new laptop.
i may get it locally or from abroad through a friend

1)Budget-60-70k(around 1000 usd)

2)size-mainstream around 15"

3)mostly gaming,both the latest,high end games and older games too,watching movies/anime/tv series and other daily uses

4)Configuration:i'm aiming for a 960m.processor really doesn't matter,but any i5/i7 will do.
Ram can be upgraded later too,and for hard disk,1 TB would be nice,and i guess is the standard in this price range


5)Brands: no preference

6)Screen resolution:1080p definitely
Battery backup:doesn't matter,it's a gaming laptop
Purchase place:i am mostly getting it from abroad,either from U.S. or dubai.it's not certain yet.

i am considering this:Asus Rog Gl552

this looks like a good deal for 1000 dollars.

MSI option looks good too.MSI GE62 Apache

which one would you recommend?if you have any other recommendations,please do.
i am not considering clevo/sager because unless i'm missing something,there isn't much difference in price for the same config,and with asus/msi i'll get international warranty and After sales Supprt.plus,it's not certain i am getting the lappy from U.S,i may be getting it from somewhere else.
 
do they deliver that ASUS model in India?

just an update,i have finally decided on the Asus ROG Gl552VW-DH71 from U.S.
the only other thing left to decide is if to get a ssd for it.i am thinking of waiting a while and not getting one now,as an ssd is not essential and i'd like to keep the costs minimum.

^^the other option of ASUS on amazon looks good 4GB VRAM, 1TB + 128SSD

1300 is out of my budget,plus 300$ for 2GB Vram and 128 gb ssd does not seem a good deal to me.
If you are not comfortable spending $300 more, its understandable though, just get this
Amazon.com: Samsung 850 EVO 250 GB M.2 SSD (MZ-N5E250BW): Computers & Accessories

I'm sure you can spend $90 for 250GB SSD... A great laptop it will be at $1100

yeah,that's the one i will get,if i get one.
at first i was thinking after some time i will get a faster and better pcie(and nvme) drive like samsung 950 pro,but it seems that our laptop only supports sata III M.2 ssd's,so it won't matter if i get one now or later.
plus i will get it cheaper if i get it from there.

I would suggest to get a similar specced laptop with m.2 pcie.
As SM951 is nearly $100.

My 850 Evo takes 10s to boot up.

Because pcie helps in future if you go for power hungry softwares in future.

SSDs are fast... I don't think you need a 950 pro... My cheap Crucial SSD is fast & I'm happy with it. Just get a 250GB one, then you can keep a game or two in it too (enjoy fast load times in games too)
 
Asus seems to be good. Good choice ! If there would be an other option, then would Dell work ??

If i'm correct, Dell has laptops with i7 ULV, GTX950M, 1080p screen at $800 or so... You get inferior CPU & GPU, but it might be the best the from Dell for your budget
 

Even though Dell provides a better CPU over ASUS one but ASUS one has good cooling, extra M2 slot(for SSD) & 7200 rpm HDD

As a matter of fact 4th gen i7 is too powerful to be paired with 960M (In future GPU will bottleneck, i don't think CPU will, as is the case with my laptop)

according to reviews (and i am using this from past three days), cooling is great and dell has extra ram and SSD slots.

anyway congrats on purchase.

honestly,i didn't really see it nor heard about it while i was considering my decision.also,price is now 993$
right now,i'm sticking with the rog option as i have looked into it quite a bit and everything is pretty good
also, i think the processor is same in both.
