Hello,
I was wondering which would be the best valued gaming laptop out there. My budget can't surpass the $1200 mark. I saw these two at best buy and was wondering which one is better?

If you know of any other laptops I should be taking under consideration please let me know. Thanks!

The Toshiba is better in my opinion due to the i5 over core 2 duo, GTS 360M over the GTX 260M, and it also has a faster 7200 RPM HDD. The screen resolution is better on the Toshiba too.

If you aren't dead set on the larger configuration Newegg has this deal for $999.00: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

That has an i7 720QM & Radeon Mobility 5730 {Dx 11 support}. Plus the 7200 RPM HDD and 4 GB of DDR3 1066.

I only mention the Asus from newegg because of the i7 over the i5, but for gaming I am not sure of how great the advantage would be. Just thought you might want to see another option.

I actually work at best buy and qosmio is actually built for gaming. as for i7 over i5 you will see a difference only if youre using a lot of multiple applications with gaming etc.
