Which Gaming Laptop is better?

I can't decide between these laptops I would use mainly for gaming.
The Alienware M17x R3 (17.3"), MSI GT683DXR (15.6"), ASUS G53SX-A1 (15.6")
and Sager NP8130 (15.6')

Which would have better performance and survive the long run?

  1. Here is some help, reading text on a 15,6" 1080P display is going to be difficult. The 2630 is more powerful than the 2410 http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Processors-Benchmarklist.2436.0.html
