Firstly: Always, always read as many user reviews as possible, some laptop models have design/manufacturing flaws. Asus are generally pretty good, no idea about Cosmos.

Both PCs have 950m graphics cards - enough to play FM but not more graphically intense games well.

Laptop 2 is better based purely on specs:

CPU is bit better - 6300HQ is Quad core vs dual core (big difference, wouldn't buy a quad core if you intend to play newer games)
Display is IPS - this is a huuge bonus. After getting an IPS I don't think I can go back to a normal LED.
Storage is 250GB SSD which is good (always have FM on the SSD) BUT - that is the only storage you have, so not much space if you plan to have lots of videos etc.
