Default Gaming Laptop (560m vs 670m)

Hello so I have a choice between the two following laptops

MSI GT683R-664US

MSI GT70 0NC-002US

Regarding the size of the screen, is there an incredible performance difference between the two?

At this moment both are pretty much at the same price but the main difference is screen size (disregard that) and graphics ram.

Any opinions or facts about MSI laptops would be helpful !

You've linked to the same item twice.... ;)

I'm going to guess that the second one is a 17" screen? If so, I'd recommend against it as being too big and bulky to be considered a mobile solution. I bought a 17" HP thinking that "bigger is better" and regretted it from day one.

My apologies sswilson, I have fixed the links :)

I think it's a bit more than just the screen size because just looking statistically, the 15.6inch has 560m and the 17inch has 670m graphics cards.

I'm curious if there will be an performance difference between the two cards or is one significantly better than the other?

Maybe OP was refering to this one here: MSI GT70 0NC-002US Intel Core I7-3610QM 12GB 750GB 17.3in LED GTX670M 3GB DVDRW HDMI W7HP64 Notebook

The only differences are the GPU, HDD and screen size, although both have the same resolution, so the screen size is not a performance issue.

Do you want to be able to move the laptop a lot or will it mostly be stationary?

And check out this comparison: GTX 670M vs GTX 570M vs GTX 660M

It shows performance of 570 vs 670, but you can go from there.

It will be moving quite often so I will most likely decide upon the screen size but just looking graphics card comparison alone, is there a major difference?
