Default help with new computer

yeah, so my laptop right now blows, it is missing all screws hold the case together and is duct taped to keep it from falling apart, on top of that it is missing pins and therefor has to be stabbed with a knife to turn it on.

so anyway i need a new computer, now i want a laptop even though that means losing quality or w.e i was looking at laptops(i want get into computer gaming as i hate my 360) and i dont want to spend over $1000 or not much over it

i was wondering would these laptops do the job(give me a decent-good gaming laptop)

hey rob, out of those two i'd definitely recommend the asus. hp probook's are generally a business centered product line --and the asus also has a significantly faster processor and graphics card.

hope i've helped
