Tired of dealing with my outdated, 3 year old Compaq Presario M2000, I've started looking at laptops quite a bit. So far the Gateway P-173X FX and ASUS G50V-A1 seem to meet both my requirements as far as specs for gaming and music, and the amount of money I'm willing to spend. The ASUS sounds like a much more solid notebook, especially with 2 HDD's, better processor, and better screen res (while being even more portable at 15.4" than the 17" gateway). So now I'd like to hear everyone else's opinions. My main questions are: Are there any common problems with either brand that I should be wary of? For anyone who's used the ASUS G50V, does the keyboard seem small or squished? It looks small in pictures. 15.4" Widescreen -vs- 17" Widescreen ... 1680x1050 WSXGA+ LCD -vs- 1440x900 WXGA+ Ultrabright TFT Active Matrix ... Portability -vs- Size ... Which display is better for gaming? Thanks for any and all advice.
