I found a review of the two graphics card


Note that both tested units have double the RAM of your two.  Not a lot of difference between the cards.



If you look on Amazon you will see  the HP for a lot less money:

Personally I like the SSD in the HP.  Should boot faster.  I looked at a Dell Laptop at Costco the other day.  They used a Seagate hard drive.  Seagates are not known for their reliability.  (So I bought the HP which used Hitachi.)  Go back to Best Buy and to Walmart and check the make of the hard drive.  (Search for

device manager

hit Enter

Click on the arrow in front of Disk Drive.  It should open and show you both the SSD and the regular hard drive.  If it starts with ST it's a Seagate.  Get the part number and look it up when you get home. )
