Gaming laptop

I am trying to decide on gaming laptops for my husband and I. I am not good with computers / specs so I am hoping for some advice.

Which of these two computers is better? Is there a better option for under $1500? As previously stated I am not good with computers, nor is my husband so building our own is not an option. We want laptops, not desktops. Windows, not mac. Our primary game would be league of legends (maxed settings) but we want the ability to play MOST modern games. (Starcraft 2, elder scrolls online, etc.)

Option 1: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015ZG9964?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_2&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Option 2: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0141IHZ9U?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_1&smid=A2TC87EJKQMY9O

ETA: I am comparing these two in particular because of the price difference. Basically I am wondering if it is worthwhile to spend the extra money on the Asus or if the MSI is almost just as good for far cheaper.

What is the smallest space you would want to live in? I watch those Tiny House shows and while I love the concept, some of those places just seem too big to be considered Tiny. I would be OK with 100 square feet or less.

1) If you had a personal assistant, what kinds of tasks would you ask them to do?

2) Is there an online tool to unzip a file? I can't download 7zip onto my work laptop, and I'm trying to install a much needed printer driver, but it comes as a .gz file, which I don't seem to have a way to open.

3) What's the nicest thing you've gotten in the mail recently?

Cat advice

I have two female cats. One is a year and a half old, one is 10 months old.

My sister is about to rehome a 3 year old cat she adopted a few months ago. This cat is very sweet and bonded to her, but very timid and hides when her fiancé is home. She initially adopted him with another cat that he was bonded with but the other cat was very sick (unbeknownst to her) and she unfortunately had to have him put down two days after she brought them home. He is a sweet cat and has never hissed or scratched while she has had him. Just timid.

My two cats are loving to each other and sweet. They play fight only. The 1 year old one was so excited from the first second we brought home the kitten (she was a few months old when we got her) and they never fought or anything. We also had a 19 year old cat at the time who was a little grumpy at the new additions but they all also got along fine and bonded.

Can anyone give me any insight or advice? I really want to take the cat but my SO is wary. He loves cats but he is worried about fights and he said it will be up to me to surrender the cat to the spca if it doesn't work out which would break my heart.

Is it possible to bring a new cat home to an existing two cat household? Is it a long shot? I would be traveling this cat from 8 hours away but I'm willing to put in time and effort if there's a good chance they will eventually get along. I've never had experience bringing home an adult cat to existing cats, only kittens/young cats.
