Looking for a gaming/dev laptop - Thought & Suggestions

Laptop General Discussion Forum - www.tomsguide.com
Looking at purchasing a Gaming laptop primarily for gaming and learning game/app development.

I'm currently comparing the

MSI - GX63VR-NE1070

to

MSI - GE73 Raider-008

(Not sure if this link will work for everyone but HERE to see the new-egg comparison(Don't know any better comparison websites))

Storage is a big thing for me as visual studio alone apparently has to be installed to C: drive which takes up a good 80GB, the bigger screen size also would be good and wouldn't mind being able to play the likes of GTA V on high or close to high settings.

Components marked as follows:

Green - Desirable

Red - Undesirable

Orange - Same

GX63VR

- i7-7700HQ

- 16GB RAM

- 15.6" Screen

- GTX 1070 8GB

- 1x 256 GB M.2 SATA SSD

- 1x 1TB HDD @ 7200RPM

is AUD$2,075

OR

GE73 Raider

- i7-7700HQ

- 16GB RAM

- 17.3" Screen

- GTX 1050 4GB

- 2x 512 GB M.2 SATA SSD [NON-RAID]

AUD$1,825.00

I am open to suggestions of other laptops but they must follow the folowing specs

Up to $2200

Relatively good screen.

Lots of storage (Min 256GB SSD + HDD)

Don't want it to be laggy (Min 16GB RAM)

Weight/size isn't an issue however the larger screen would be a positive.

This was my other shortlist
