Between these two laptops, I believe that the gs66 stealth would be the better option because it has more storage, is cheaper, and because razer laptops often fail. However as an owner of a gs66 stealth myself, I don’t think it would be a great school laptop. Gaming laptops are not great for school use because they are often heavier, have worse battery life, and get loud. With the custom fan curve I have set and the laptop on lowest power and performance settings, it does reach silent operation most of the time though. But there are still those other times where it is very noisy and the battery only lasts a few hours at best. So, are you sure a gaming laptop is what you are looking for?
