You might be disappointed if you expect to run games like the Witcher at 60fps or higher resolution. Instead, you can consider HP 15-bc010nr which comes with an i5-6300HQ processor, having four cores, and NVIDIA Geforce GTX 950M graphics with 2GB DDR5 video memory.

Both the laptops come with 8GB DDR4 RAM and full HD display, which means the display can support up to 1080p playback.
