What laptop do I get :)?

Well, I've been browsing everywhere and I still don't know the best laptop to fit my budget. I've gotten pretty close, but not quite. I am looking for something with the statistics below:

-At least a screen resolution of 1600 x 900 and a size of 15.5 inches

-Battery Life Over 2:30, but I guess I can also used one lower as long as everything else is good

-GTS 250M or better. I like to play the latest games on max settings; the GTX 260 seems perfect

-A good CPU that is hopefully quad

-4 gigs of Ram. DDR3 and DDR2 have like a 1% performance issue...

On ebay I found this for $1,100 which could also be bought for $1000 with 4 gigs of ram instead of 6. It has ddr3 ram, nice screen, an i7 quad core; which matches everything but I need a better GPU.

At Bestbuy I found this, which has everything but a better screen resolution and a better cpu. About this same price. Might of bought it but terrible reviews about sound cutting out, fingerprint magnet, and blue screens of death.

Right now I have $800. But I can save up to around $1200. I don't really want to spend much more though!

  4. Well, if there's a warrenty you think ASUS will replace it? The item has a ton of recent reviews, and I think either 0 or 1 BSOD, I think that was replaced.
  5. There are some top gaming laptops in your price range such as ASUS G51, Gateway P.

    They all have a good graphic card to play all latest games in high settings...
