A 3 year old gaming laptop? That's bad news. Gaming laptop age poorly and you discover why they are selling it later.
OK I got a offer from a guy for a alienware for 1400 bucks and his laptop seems the best of the best... but in 2008 since i think his ati graphic card was produce back then. also to let you know that his graphic card supposly got updated to direct x11 but that what he says so i need a professional idea. But I am considering the Asus for 1100 bucks. here are the specs
INTER CORE 2 QUAD EXTREME PROCESSOR QX9300

2 GIG ATI RADEON MOBILITY 4870HD WITH CROSSFIRE!!

1920 X 1200 RGB LED TRUE LIFE DISPLAY THE BEST YOU CAN GET.
BUILT IN WEBCAM WITH HD CAMERA
UPGRADED 2X2 WIRELESS NETWORK CARD

Now here is the Asus
Intel Core i7-740QM (1.73GHz Quad-Core with Turbo Boost up to 2.93GHz)
8GB DDR3 1333MHz, 4 SODIMM Sockets
1TB (500G 7200RPM x2) HDD; Blue-Ray Disk Combo Drive; 802.11 b/g/n

Seems his resolution is higher and mention a led true life display what ever that means and he has a 2gb card but a older version. Either wait his processor is not a I7 but anyways which is best for just gaming for max setting power?
