My System Specs

Default

A discrete GPU is definitely a benefit, but I did notice that both systems use a 5400 RPM HDD, which is not exactly spectacular. If you'll have a portable storage option I'd look at getting one with an SSD in it or a 7200RPM drive as you'll really notice the performance bump.

I'm not sure what ASUS's non-GXX series laptops are like to replace HDDs on, so it might be worth checking the manuals for each model first as on some occasions laptop manufacturers do some really stupid things and the less you have to take apart in a laptop the better. (Being ASUS however, I suspect they'll be easily swapped)
