Default New laptop

Hi everyone

I am looking for a new laptop that is capable of doing my work, guitar pro software, computer aided designing and most games

I don't play very demanding games, the most important are sims 2, battlefield 2, rollercoaster tycoon 3, halo, halo 2 ect ect.

Therfore because I know sod all about laptop graphic cards I have devised a list of potential laptops.

GRADE A2 - Acer Aspire 6930G Laptop Screen size - 16 in - 1366 x 768
Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 - 2 GHz
RAM - 3 GB
Hard Drive - 250 GB
Optical Drive - DVD±RW (±R DL) / DVD-RAM / BD-ROM
Graphics - NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS
Operating system - vista

ACER Aspire 5552 Windows 7 laptop Screen size - 15.6 in
Processor - AMD Athlon II X2 - 2.1 GHz
RAM - 3 GB
Hard Drive - 320 GB
Operating System - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
Optical Drive - DVD Super Multi
Graphics - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250

Lenovo G565 Windows 7 Laptop
Screen size - 15.6 in - 1366 x 768
Processor - AMD Turion II Dual Core - 2500 MHz
RAM - 2048 Mb
Hard Drive - 500 GB
Operating System - Windows 7 Home Premium
Optical Drive - DVD Super Multi DL
Graphics - Radeon HD 5470
Webcam - Y

If anyone could provide a list of mid to high range gaming graphics, that would be swell so I could narrow this search down!
