I am currently looking at a new laptop and I am stuck between two around the same price. The first is the Lenovo Y580 and the other is the HP DV6tqe. Both links are below but as a quick summary the only major differences are:

The lenovo has a better graphics card (GTX660m vs GT 650m) but the HP has a 32 SSD drive. Assuming both are the same price (I have a family member who works at HP so I will be getting a discount) which is the better option for the mix between gaming, netflix and school work?

A 32GB SSD is going to make your life more difficult as you will need to custom install every software to the D: drive and keep the C: drive clean for just the Windows. I dont really think its worth the hassle, but you might.

I have a 60 GB SSD and after Windows, Office and programms that wouldn't let me install them elsewhere and around 37 GB are already full. I advise you to choose the better graphic card.

Thanks for the opinions, I can always drop the SSD on the laptop and up the normal hard drive to 7200rpm instead for the same cost
