Posted this question in the tech help section by accident so I'll quote what I said there here

Hey there

My previous laptop had a Geforce GT 650 2gb DDR3, Intel core I7 3630QM (clocked at 2.4GHZ but I overclocked it to 2.6 GHZ) and rocking 8GB ram but I took it up to a company for maintenance and the ports on it was wrecked and I accidentally dropped it before and afraid if it;s not going to run properly due so I need a new laptop. However the company that was going to help me to fix it stated they have no parts so therefore a fix cannot be made.

So I'm looking at a few laptops and was wondering which one would be more suited towards my personal usage, I'm a YouTube video vloger and also a gamer (I don't really play games at max settings and tend to just go for low to medium settings and don't mind it as long as I'm able to run it than I'm good). Also I take my laptop (university student) on the go most of the time so portability is a must. The laptops I'm looking at are the Lenovo Y50 with - Intel® Core™ i7-4710HQ Processor - Quad-core - 2.5 GHz / 3.5 GHz with TurboBoost - 6 MB cache 16 GB DDR3L Graphics card NVIDIA GeForce GTX-860M (4 GB GDDR5) Storage - 1 TB HDD, 5400 rpm - 8 GB SSD

But thing is I heard the Y50 has a terrible screen so I won't know if it would be aright or not or switch to the Y70 with a 17inch screen but no DVD external that the Y50 has. Which is a must for me due to the software supplied by the university needing it.

Or another laptop which is a PC SPECIALIST Optimus V RS15 that has Intel® Core™ i7-4710MQ Processor (2.4 GHz, 3.4 GHz with TurboBoost, 6 MB cache) RAM Kingston 8 GB DDR3 (1600 MHz) (16 GB maximum installable RAM) Graphics card NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M (2 GB GDDR5) Storage - 1 TB HDD, 5400 rpm - 120 GB SSD Matte coating screen 1080p DVD is internal to the laptop The pc specialist is £50 more than the Lenovo but more SSD yet less Ram while the Y50 has more ram yet less SSD.

Which one would be better for me please? planning to get the laptop in a week time.
