    OK, well I will try them both out once I learn more about which driver to use with the NVIDIA. The system76 has a bigger screen so it would be nice to use that.

    +1. Customer service is great. When I was searching for a laptop and compared ones *with similar specs*, I found that they were about the same price. I'm not sure how it is now.
