Hi again guys, Im helping a friend buy a gaming laptop, and of course, I surfed through newegg. Im looking at 2 different asus g75 models, and im a little confused at the pricing. I know there have been experiences for people where a more valuable item has been less than the inferior one, and I want to know if that is one of these experiences. Here are the two options.

Option A. Has a better CPU and might have a worse optical drive, but i cant really tell since the specifics are not the same....One has an amount of more info than the other.

Option B. Might have a better optical drive, not as good CPU. Again its hard to tell exactly since this computer has more specifics and more exact specifications than the other.

Option B seems to have sold more/at least been reviewed more, but from what I see, both are asus g75s given that the model number is different, OPTION A has a better CPU, and I highly doubt option B's (im not 100% sure) better optical drive covers the CPU difference. So is Option A better, or am i missing something?

EDIT: I also forgot to point out, although you could just look at the pages, that option A is cheaper...

their both almost identical in performance, the only real difference is the CPUs, the laptop with the i7 3640QM has a hair more CPU performance-but only a hair, other then that I would say performance wise they are identical-even down the the optical drive.
