I like the laptops with metal cases. This gives the machine a fighting chance to deal with heat. I think you should short list it to the metallic models.
My Dell Studio 1555 just died and i needed to replace it.
I was unsure between a few laptops all within the same price range and wanted to know which one was best.
Samsung NP 300E5A-S05GR
HP Pavilion A2U25EA
Toshiba SAT C660
By what i've seen the best 2 options are the ASUS and SAMSUNG. Laptop would be used primarily for work (lagal, so spreadsheets, word, powerpoint etc) as well as gaming (nothing too fancy, mostly games like GTA IV / V, and somewhat newer games 2011 and earlier). so i guess graphics card and processor count..
Also battery life and cooling is very important. I noticed that apparently the ASOS remains cool even after extreme use, while the others tend to over heat. One last factor is built materials, the ASUS is aluminum, but if the contents are inferiro i am willing to overlook.
Given they all cost pretty much the same, which would you suggest?
Thank you very much for any help
