Hi guys,

I will be investing in a new laptop to do some light gaming and web browsing etc, and have come across a custom laptop builder close to where i live that are very well priced, the only problem is choosing between my final 2 choices.

laptop 1

Intel Core i7-2640M
8 GB DDR3 1333 MHz
15,6 inch HD LED TFT 1366x768
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6730
BluRay Burner + DVD Burner
1000 GB Samsung 5400 U/Minute
Ultimate-N 6300 Intel

Laptop 2

Intel Core i7-720QM
8 GB DDR3 1333 MHz
15,6 inch HD+ LED TFT 1600x900
8x Multi DVD Burner
320 GB WD Blue Scorpio 5400 rpm
Ultimate-N 6300 Intel

So I would love to hear which one you would pick.

Thanks very much!

If your going to buy something new and paying the premium for it, then buy it new not old but un-used.

Laptop #2 is using 2+ year old hardware (gtx 400 series, 1st gen I-7 cpu), pick laptop #1.

Thanks for the fast reply guys, I really appreciate it!

As per your suggestion Cloudy, this is within my budget and seems to be an improvement in all areas over the ASUS A53SV,

Would this be a better buy than either of the two I first posted?
