    I'm having a simular issue trying to find a laptop to buy.

    I'm also considering between Asus (n71jq-xt1) and Qosmio (x505-q888).

    I would go with option B, personally. Seeing as it is a dual core with 4GB of ram. I don't know much, but I know that much makes your gameplay experience all the more enjoyable.
    A typical raid leader command would be something like "Yo Scrub, why don't you YOLO 1337 yards to the left because the boss's Swag is about to hit us in 3 seconds".

    You realize they both have:
    4GB RAM
    GTS 360M 1GB DDR5 Video Cards
    500GB HDD
    DVD+RW Drive

    Differences:
    Monitor Size (16" v 18.4")
    Processor (2.26GHz v 2.4GHz)

    Option B is better by far, no need to even run a poll on it.

    Faster CPU, bigger monitor and it's brand new with full warranty, instead of refurbished junk.

    It also shows in pricetag pretty clearly which one is better.
    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.

    Lol, he is so right. Would've been better if one had atleast a 20"+ monitor, bigger the better. But they would charge like an extra $200 because of it.
