    Hey :)
    Well that Acer notebook looks quite good, it can handle both of those games fine on medium(or high if you lower the resolution)
  2. Thanks.. :) but is there anything else that can match/ better than it?
  3. ASUS G60 is a good choice too(if you can find it in Malaysia)
    If the link doesn't work,search for "G60JX-RBBX05" in bestbuy

    But it lacks portability, battery life & heavy..

    Not to mention only the one with the Core i7 version is only available here.. :o

    I think that Acer is the way to go..
