Trying to decide which laptop to buy, need help

Discussion: Trying to decide which laptop to buy, need help

Well basically I cant decide (or more like, can't see which one will be a better option) of laptops, and those are: Asus GL553VE: -16gb ram -1050Ti 4gb vram -7th-generation Intel Core i7 quad-core processor -Aura RGB-backlit scissor-switch keys -256GB SATA SSD + 1TB HDD -Around 1300$ and the other one is: Acer Aspire VX 15 -16gb ram -1050Ti 4gb vram -Same CPU as the Asus one -256GB SSD (you have an option to add a HDD on this one) -Around 1000$ The problem comes, when I read so much about both Acer laptops and Asus ones, the thing is, what I read about acer is mostly bad, saying how their laptops are no better than HPs, and so good things about Asus, but as you saw above, there is a difference of 300$ between the two but they basically have the same specs, thats why I wonder which one should I buy, do you guys recommend the Acer or the Asus one? I want a laptop that I can play games on, but usefull for school projects / work aswell. What are your experiences with the Brands named?
