I'm after a sort of casual gaming laptop that can also replace my ageing desktop so i can still do some video watching like hd youtube or game trailers, i own a 360, ps3 and wii so only really PC exclusives will get a look in as well as CS source. I want windows 7.
Out of the two laptops i linked to the Asus seems to have a better performing GPU and is alot cheaper but the dell has a better CPU.... i dont really understand any of this so all help appreciated.... thanks in advance.
