I'm looking for a decent to good gaming computer that has a great cooling system. I don't play crazy games that has a lot of requirements. Most of the games i want to play only require around 256 MB video card. I did have a few picks and i was wondering if they are good. Can you guys give me some feedback on my picks? This includes life span of the laptop and how easily if can break/die.

Note: My budget is around 700 Bucks. Lower the better.

You might want to think about what if I need warranty service? Where Do I go and how long

Out of those laptops, i would get the Sony laptop because it has the latest processor and good enough graphics.

It depends on the hardware of the laptop not the brand. You would have to be specific on the graphics model and also it depends on the games you play.

In a moment of weakness I picked this up last week: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834215197

Tried to talk myself out of it, but my brother has has really good luck with his Acer laptops, so I took the plunge. $525 after discounts, I can live with it.

I wouldn't get the sony. Other than that you are giving two Asus laptops that are basically the same.

Personally I would get the 17.3 inch screen Asus. It also has a better graphics card then the Sony.

Are you going to be using this on the go a lot? If so, you might want to make sure how many lbs it is.

The only problem with the Asus is that it uses the older core 2 duo which slower then the 2nd gen i5. Also both of the Asus laptops are recertified meaning that it is not brand new and it may have problems when you get it.

There are a few things I'd take a chance on refurbed. For example many of the refurb Magnavox DVD recorders with hard drive that users on another forum have bought have been shown to have less than an hour on the hard drive and a lot less on the burner. There are commands you can use to tell.

In that case I believe it is just that the buyers can't figure out how to use them. Those I'd buy.

Laptops and desktops and printers? Never. It also depends on who did the refurb.

Sometimes your sent with a good refurbished one that fully functions or you get the bad one which gives you problems when using it, so i reckon it's 50/50 chance here.
