Gaming Laptop Help

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?
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+Laptop+with+Intel%26%23174%3B+Core%26%23153%3B2+Duo+Processor+-+Black/9556125.p?id=1218124208054&skuId=9556125

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Toshiba+-+Qosmio+Laptop+with+Intel%26%23174%3B+Core%26%23153%3B+i5+Processor+-+Omega+Black/9716111.p?id=1218158634282&skuId=9716111

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=N82E16834220696

    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.
  2. 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.
