Photographer's Laptop vs. Gaming Laptop

I have recently been looking to purchase a new laptop for photo/video editing. One question that has come up for me is: Is a "gaming laptop" a good bet for a photographer's laptop. For example, there are two laptops that I am interested in. The Toshiba p55t (which is reffered to as a photographer's laptop) and the Lenovo y50 (which is dubbed a "gaming laptop"). Is there an important difference between these two types of laptops as far as a photographer is concerned? Are there certain components to a photographer's laptop that would not be in a gaming laptop?

Thank you.
