I'm doing this off the FAQ you filled out in the wrong thread. All of the following are 15'' laptops, below $1100 that will be better than the Asus A42 (the ATI 5470 is not going to be good for gaming).
Ok guys , I changed my budget to maximun 1,168.68$ ..
what is your opinion about Sony CW26 ?
My opinion is don't get a sony if you want to game.
Either get an asus or even stick the old but still dominant Gateway FX 7805u, which you can find way under your budget, and its able to play any game out. (currently playing Battlefield: Bad Company 2 on mine)
EDIT: This laptop is probably the best deal for your money, posted by lostandwandering above.
