Question New Laptop!

Heya guys im going to be buying a new laptop soon, and cant really make up my mind on what to get..hoped you guys could give me some suggestions..

Ill be using the laptop for few games (WoW, L4D, CS), web dev software, and watching some movies

looking to spend around 1000$

I came accross these two laptops, but not too sure if they are any good... second one is a bit more than i wanted to spend, but if its worth the extra ill go for it :P

HP HDX16-1370US 16-Inch Entertainment Laptop
Amazon.com: HP HDX16-1370US 16-Inch Entertainment Laptop: Computer & Accessories

and

Gateway P-7805u FX 17" 4GB Notebook Computer
Amazon.com: Gateway P-7805u FX 17" 4GB Notebook Computer: Computer & Accessories

I don't think the first one even tells you what gpu it has (just says 1GB graphics memory). I would avoid it. Here is a better model of the second one for $100 less:

Newegg.com - Gateway P-7807u FX Edition NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo P8600(2.40GHz) 17.0" Wide XGA+ 4GB Memory DDR3 1066 320GB HDD 7200rpm Dual layer DVD Burner NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GTS - Laptops / Notebooks

I'd say go with that one. It has a weaker cpu but a stronger gpu.
