New Laptop, Older Games
It's very similar to the one I linked before (this one), except the one I linked to is confirmed to have an IPS display
They both come with a 256GB SSD, so you should be ok, at least for some time.
About RAM - I'm pretty sure you can upgrade in both. I would wait with the upgrade, hoping the RAM prices will go down (it's around x1.8-x2 compared to a 1.5 years ago)
