Default New ASUS Laptop For Gaming

Hey I was planning on buying another laptop but last night this one caught my eye, It's by Asus, It's located here - ASUS K42 Series K42JV-X1 NoteBook Intel Core i5 450M(2.40GHz) 14" 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 500GB HDD 7200rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M

I think it's a great price for a pretty good processor (Intel i5 450M) and a great graphics card (Nvidia GT335M) which is also in the new alienware M11X which is even more expensive than this laptop, so what do you think? I think i'm going to buy it, if you aren't sure yet just take a look at this laptop running GTA 4 Episodes From Liberty City on medium at an average of 25 FPS

YouTube - [Gameplay] GTA4 Episodes from Liberty City on Asus K42 laptop

I'm going to be buying this laptop around christmas time hopefully, what do you think about it? I think it's awesome for less than 1000 dollars

I agree, it seems pretty cool! However its screen is only 14''. Isn't a bit small for games? Unless you connect it to an external monitor or tv!

Yes, but you have less CPU power than the M11X.

But overall, that is a swell laptop
