Thinking of getting a decent gaming laptop and was looking at these two, which one would you go for out of the two? I'm out of the loop on specs these days. Thanks!

your best bet is to jump on pricespy.co.nz and expand all the filters and filter what you need, for gaming i would look for a nvidia gtx card or ati radeon r9 chip.

Like most things I find at harvey norman they both seem like bad deals.

The HP is better on most fronts except 8GB of ram vs 32GB of ram and 2GB of VRAM vs 4GB of VRAM. VRAM doesn't really matter as the laptop likely won't be powerful enough to drive things that are using that much VRAM. RAM well 8GB is quite a lot for 99% of users and not that expensive to add more of. Although it costs $1300 more, and I honestly couldn't justify paying $3300 for that laptop. If I had to choose I would go for the HP one because it has half decent specs.

But really you want something like this: http://www.playtech.co.nz/afawcs0139235/CATID=919/ID=24864/SID=635987736/productdetails.html
