Hi, i am choosing a laptop. I am a computer scientist so I will use it for programming, run heavy experimental applications and gamming, besides midia and browsing.

Which of these are better choice? I would like to have a portable machine to carry it on my backpack to the university, with good audio and cooling system. Also, a good battery performance is important.

Thanks in advance for your time and opinion.

I'd choose the MSI GE62. Huge SSD, huge HDD, great steelseries keyboard. Good Dynaudio speakers, redesigned 2 fan cooling system. 2 year warranty, 3 year on the CUK upgrades.

ASUS makes nice laptops, but their customer/warranty service is supposed to be pretty bad. Only a 1 year warranty (3 year on the CUK upgrades).

Always been leery of Acer's build quality. I also heard that the Nitro Series has cooling issues. You'd have to research that to find out if it's true. Also, the 4K UHD display is overkill for gaming, and you may have to turn down game settings to get it to run certain games well at native resolution. Many programs don't scale well at that resolution, either. Only 1 year warranty.
