    Are you going to use it for school? (heavy virtualization, photoshop, autocad etc?)
    If you do, get the i7 (obv). Otherwise, get the 2nd one (Cosmos II X580) since it has a better GPU compared to the MSI one.

    Get the Cosmo. It uses the new Maxwell architecture and even though it has less shaders than the GTX 765M it out preforms and uses less power. If you're worried about the processor just buy a I7-4700M off of eBay (make sure it's from a reputable dealer) and plop it into the laptop. People don't realize how easy it is to actually upgrade the processor in most laptops. (Sans BGA) I'd personally open the laptop anyway and repaste both the CPU & GPU.
