My lenovo y50 died on me after not even 3 years. Super disappointed in that laptop. Didn't last long and gave me problems all along the way such as stuttering while the graphics card would desync or something like that. Anyway I need a new gaming laptop with the budget of $800-$900. I was looking at these two but don't really know the difference. Also you can suggest different laptops.

The top one has a better graphics card but a worse processor than the bottom. I'd go with the top one personally.

I found some more options after a little more research. Anyone wanna help me pick one out?

These 2 I get $100 off. The omen looks like a great deal but I recall people steering me away from hp and dell when I bought my lenovo (look how that turned out lol)

Dell is probably a decent laptop. Ive had a few and they seemed be more sturdy and with a rubber lid rather than the cheap plastic some companies use. Also never had any problems with them.

Also id take a 1050ti with an i5 over an i7 with a reg 1050. Plus dell has decent support.

The Dell. Word of warning, the screen is ass. But it is the best at this price out of the lot.

Why is it ass? color distortion, viewing angles, or flimsiness?
