    I'm getting a laptop for mainly gaming and web browsing. I wouldn't bring it around with me too much other than around the house. I've narrowed my choices down to these two laptops:

    Gateway P-173X FX
    -Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7500 (2.20GHz, 800MHz, 4MB L2 Cache)
    -RAM: 4096MB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    -OS: Vista Ultimate 64bit
    -Hard Drive: 200GB 7200rpm Serial ATA
    -Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8800M GTS 512MB
    -Display: 17.0" WXGA+ 1440x900 max resolution
    -Price: $1359.99 at tigerdirect.com

    Toshiba Qosmio X305-Q701
    -Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T7350 (2.00GHz, 1066MHz, 3MB L2 Cache)
    -RAM: 4096MB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM
    -OS: Vista Home Premium 64bit
    -Hard Drive: 200GB 7200rpm Serial ATA
    -Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 9700M GTS 512MB
    -Display: 17.0" WXGA+ 1440x900 max resolution
    -Price: $1550 with $150 discount at best buy, so $1400

    So which one should I get? Any other recommendations are welcome

    I'd get the Toshiba, if you don't mind how it looks. I saw it in store, and f'ugly.
