Thumbs up Multitask/Gaming Laptop Recommendations?

My price range extends to a max of $1500 though a little under would be nice as well. Here are a few links to laptops for sale I found around the site below that seem interesting. Which of these would be the best.. or is there something better for the buck?

Gateway - Laptop with Intel® Centrino® Processor Technology - P-6860FX

Gateway Official Site: Products - P-173X FX Edition, Notebooks, Product Details - ASUS M50 Series M50Vm-X1 NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo P8400(2.26GHz) 15.4" Wide XGA 4GB Memory 250GB HDD 5400rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS - Laptops / Notebooks

I recommend either ASUS M50 or Toshiba - Qosmio

ASUS M50 has faster CPU, but slower GPU. So, if you planing to use laptop just for gaming, the Toshiba - Qosmio might be better. It cost more though...

The Asus G50V's are coming out soon. I'm going to pick up one of them. It's got the 9700m GT 512MB DDR3 video card. I was looking at the M50 though, and it looks pretty good too.

Maybe taking into consideration that Asus posted first off what is the best gaming laptop for around 1500ish? That looks good though.
