Well,I think Saiyan (@SaiyanGoku) will be able to help you out,as he is using Lenovo Laptops for a long time and he has the expertise on those machines with a competent depth of knowledge.
But my suggestion is go for Lenovo Ideapad Z50-70,because it sports a FHD screen,which is a very big + point compared to the G50-80,as you have the necessary budget to purchase.Also your usage pattern suggests that the Ideapad Z50-70 will be much better,as you are not an avid gamer,but occasional one.
Ultimately your wish and choice.

I don't think z51-70 has dedicated graphic card. It is using inbuilt intel graphics.

Fully correct,mate.
But usage scenario of @OP,suggested by himself shows that he is an occasional (not so hardcore) gamer.

OP is talking about GTA 5 and COD and these are pretty intensive games irrespective of the playing condition.
 
Nah I don't buy those fk reviews. Most of them don't even know what they are talking about. I was looking for notebookcheck review.

If there is a major issue like touchpad issue or something, they would point out. Most won't be able to point out the minor problems though (There are few exceptions)

I will be going to the HP showroom to check this out. Looks like a decent laptop.

Yeah that's a good decision

A thing which you won't be able to find out is how long will the laptop run ? Life span, basically....
Due to cuurent condition of my Lenovo laptop & my friend's Z500, I'm asking people not to buy Lenovo (+ the TN display sucks)
