      I am going to get a new laptop mainly to use for LR and PS but I also want to be able to edit video.  Which of these 2 laptops is my best option...


      ASUS ROG G751JT-CH71

      • Intel Core i7-4710HQ 2.5 GHz
      • 16 GB DDR3
      • 1000 GB 7200 rpm Hard Drive
      • 17.3-Inch Screen, Nvidia GTX970M 3GB GDDR5
      • Windows 8.1




      Acer Aspire V17 Nitro Black Edition VN7-791G-730V

      • Intel Core i7-4720HQ Processor (2.6 GHz)
      • 16 GB DDR3 RAM
      • 1 TB 5400 rpm Hard Drive, 256 GB Solid-State Drive
      • 17.3-Inch Screen, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M
      • Windows 8.1, 4-hour battery life


      Additionally, if you feel there is a better choice for $1500 or less, I would love to hear that advice as well.  I would really appreciate your help in making this decision.  Thanks!
