Thinking of getting a laptop for school and gaming

I have two in mind as of right now, But not really sure on what is better or not.

The first one is the Asus G72GXRF. At best buy (Refurbished) for $730.00

The second one is HP Pavilion dv6-3050us . At Amazon For $780.00

The highest i will go would be $800

If you have any suggestions let me know. Dosnt matter what site as long as it is a legit site.

The Asus G72 could play crysis on high( i think thats what i read)

looking for something like that, to play kinda newer games well.

Thanks!

  1. G72 has a more powerful VGA so it will do better in gaming, it can play Crysis on medium-high settings(on a low resolution)
  2. I have been looking around the web some more and have found some more good deals i think.

    But i do have a important question about neweggs "open box" deals...Do you think they are safe? Like do you think it would be worth getting an open box one for alot cheaper then they really are..or should i stick with a re-certified one
  3. Open-boxes aren't bad,you actually will get everything except the package.
  4. sounds good..well they have this one on newegg (re-certified)

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220733

    its a better deal then the one on bestbuy so ill probably get this one unless someone can find a better deal

    If you read Newegg's definition, Open Box refers to items that were opened/touched but not necessarily used. The only downside to them is that they may not include all of the accessories that were included with the "New" product.

    AFAIK it will come with all the accessories.And the only difference is that it doesn't come with its package.
    I could be wrong though,but if they are like motherboards(OEM vs Retail),then it should include all the accessories.
