Hey guys, I'm just about to get a new Laptop, one I'd like the capability to be able to play the latest games. I'd like to know if this Asus is a good buy.

I'm from New Zealand, so the price for this is not too bad. What I'd really like to know. Will it handle the latest games ok? And the Halflife2 games, like Day of Defeat Source and CSS with a decent framerate in the 100's.
Any help/feedback or information would be great.
