Other "big" difference in gaming laptops it's they're cooling system, and high capability batteries to hold longer autonomy, sometimes 3x more that a normal laptop. There's also screen higher and 3D definitions, better sound cards and speakers, etc..
You need to look beyond mere front specs to really find the difference, and if they're worth it or not.
Hey it's you again! Sorry we didn't get along too well on my previous thread.
As I said I would do before, I went out to buy a gaming laptop and these two laptops were the best ones I found.
Now as far as I can tell, these components are identical, the CPU, the GPU, they are the same designs and same models, there doesn't seem to be anything that would differentiate the Gaming Laptop's hardware from the regular Laptop, you can look them up yourself if you don't believe me, they're exactly the same, there are no special mobile CPU and GPU designs by Intel and Nvidia made specifically for Gaming Laptops.
And as for cooling, they all cool the same, using small fans, and they all build up dust very quickly, and they can all be easily fixed with a little cleaning and thermal paste. Plus I've had a Toshiba Satellite for 3 years and I can run the most intensive game on it for 6 hours straight and the temperature would stay low and stable the whole time.
And I know about the HD, 3D vision, huge screen, etc..., they don't matter for gaming, what matters is the frames per second and the ability to set graphics settings at the max. And neither does battery life matter.
I'm starting to think that they just add the word "Gaming" to the laptop to attract ignorant customers who are willing to pay more.
