Can't decide

Hi, I'm currently on the lookout for a gaming laptop and narrowed it down to two laptops from this website: http://www.bto.eu/

The main differences between the two are:

- 18.4 inch FULL HD vs 17.3 inch 1440 x 900 screen
- One 5870 vs TWO 5870 in crossfire

Is the price difference worth to go for the crossfire model (which about US 700 dollar, 550 euro)

Thx

  1. crossfire 5870 all the way.with those cards in crossfire you will be able to max out nearly every games.trust me
  2. If you are getting a FULL HD screen,then go with 5870 CF;otherwise,if you are planing to get the low resolution screen,go with 1 5870M.It can handle games fine on that res
  3. Ok, thx, I trust I'm going to be fine for a fair bit of time playing games with this machine then ? Processor is I7 720QM
