4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop? Desktop replacement.

6. Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low,Medium or High)? Civilization V, Dragon age, fallout, it would be nice if it could run skyrim but thats an extra. Medium graphics are good.

I was considering getting one of these two:
I am inclined to buy the HP Pavillion, as I would like to buy the laptop today, however if theres a better deal on a different laptopim open to suggestions, and perhaps my budget can go up to 700$ before tax if its really worth, however I would like to keep under 650$.

Thanks in advance.

That review makes the asus look like a great choice, but are there any other computers I should take a look at?
