I am trying to find which laptop from these two I should get:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220639

I want to play games such as Left 4 Dead, Gears of War, Fallout 3, and Halo 3 on my computer. I know laptops suck for gaming, but I have to get one because I have to go to my Dad's house every other day. It would be hard to haul a huge tower computer from one house to another all the time. So which one is better?

Specwise second one is better but I don't know if it would bring $500 worth the difference. So you better check online benchmark to make sure if it is. As for Halo3, there is no PC version. Unless you buy x360, not a chance.

Ahh ok. I don't really need Halo 3 but something that can run graphics that are as good as that.

Will they both be able to run all of the games I want anyway?

Can't find 220m benchmark but I found 260m benchy. Here's the link - http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-260M.14...
Scroll it down. It's around middle of the page. Mind you, it doesn't mention the whole spec(CPU/RAM/VRAM). So it's not the exact result that you would get with that asus but, at least, it gives you a rough idea.
