Actually all look good... And your use is what should decide.

The N8 will be better gaming BUT at 14" screen. The MSI is nice, but the amd is a bit slower than the intel in both. But the b9600gt is listed higher than the ATI card.

SO Its up to your intended use as all 3 are nice.

okay thanks!, i looked all 3 graphics cards on notebookcheck and the 9600 seems to be the best(not really sure why... was slightly confusing because you would think the 9650 would be better). ill mostly be using this laptop for class/photoshop/ playing some of the recent games/internet etc...

i'm leaning alil more towards the MSI but i'm not sure how good they are compared to asus?

Yha, both Class 2s there, but the 9650 is a higher clocked AND 55mn version of the 9600m. Means faster and less power hungery

What you were reading was comparing the 9650m to a 9600 desktop.

Also the 9650 is 4th from top vs, the 9600 which is 12th.

I have the 9600m gt in my acer 8930, and its pretty good.
