Need gaming laptop for university, Under $600

Hey guys, I'm looking for a gaming laptop for the university I'm going to soon.

Obviously I'm not expecting anything top of the line for $600 but I just want a laptop that can play games like GW2 and Mass Effect 3 at playable settings, around low - med (maybe even med - high!).

The one's I've been looking at are these two

http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-A55A-AB31-15-6-Inch-Laptop-Charcoal/dp/B008O23YLS/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

So basically I've been looking at ASUS laptops.

I'm open to all suggestions!

Thanks.

    That toshiba is very misleading. It states it has 7660g dual graphics but I highly doubt that it has a dedicated 7670m video card which would mean that it does not actually have dual graphics. The 7660g is a very good IGP giving you the ability to play current to older games at low settings but if you want a little better performance your best option would be the HP dv6z-7000 with the a6-4400m and the 7730m dedicated card. Using the coupon code NB9231 at check out as recommended by junky would put it at $574.99 before tax, but with free shipping.

    Yeah the HP looked really great, but the problem is that I would get it after I go out to university. So I need another option in case I decide not to wait.
