[#ffaa00]Hey. Well tommorow I'm going to buy a laptop. I'm going to use it to play videogames and go through school. I'm not a hardcore gamer that requires an amazing graphics card, some examples of games are: WoW, Guild Wars, LOTRO. So yea MMORPGS. :D  I need some help deciding which of these two are better and suited for my needs.

Toshiba AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core RM-70 2.0GHz Laptop (A300D-013) :

Tough call. I'm voting for the toshiba. Better gpu > more ram.

Yeah...they're pretty similar, but for a hundred dollar difference, I'd go with the Toshiba. Graphics card is hard to upgrade later, but ram is easy to. I don't like the AMD processor so much though, it's only got 1 Mb of L2. However, it should still be fine. And you can also upgrade the processor too, it's just a little bit more work.

Also, I don't like Gateway's customer support. :p
