I am posting on behalf of a friend who has been given some money by her work to purchase a lap top. She will use it for her work in social media but also for gaming but not FPS games. Her two choices are:
1. ASUS G53JW-A1
15.6IN FHD
Core i7 740QM 1.73 GHz, with Turbo Boost up to 2.93 GHz
6GB ram
750GB GeForce 460M 1.5GB GDDR5 VRAM

2. Dell Alienware M14x
Intel Core i7 2.3 GHz
3072MB DDR3 nVidia GeForce GT 555M
8 GB ram
