Looking to buy a new laptop. I want to use it for gaming. The games I will be playing are things like : Age of Empires 3, Heroes of Newerth, World of Warcraft, RIFT, Counter Strike Source, Left For Dead 2 etc.

My Budget is $1300 (Australian dollors)

Which one is better?

HP Pavilion Specs
Intel Core i5-450M (2.4GHz) processor
4 GB DDR3 (2 x 2048 MB)
ATI Mobility Radeonâ„¢ HD 5650 Graphics (switchable) with 1 GB dedicated
Price : $999 (AU $)

Toshiba A660
Intel Core i5 2.4GHz/2.66Ghz Turbo
4GB DDR3 (2GB + 2GB) (1066MHz) expandable to 8GB
NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M (2041MB Total: 1GB discrete memory + 1017MB shared memory)
Price : $1200 (AU $)

If you find or know of any laptops within my budget that are better than these too please recommend them. Thank you!

i wouldn't say toshiba is that reliable i have one. crashes and is slow as hell. even when it was a new computer. but they probably have changed from then and im probably having an unfair bias. but the toshiba seems better specs.

my wife and brother have HP DV laptops and I think they are great laptops. But I would say go for the Toshiba laptop as the specs are much better than the HP and cheaper

I like Toshibas, but the HP has the better performance over the GPU side. Besides that, they're the same.
