Compare these two laptops

Hey everyone, I just wanted to know which one is a better deal

This one:

Or This one:
http://www.vigorgaming.com/product/config_arescl.html *as it is configured (no change) , 1199*

I'm looking for a gaming computer that can run games like Supreme commander (low is fine for me on this game) and Empire Total War. Oh and could you guys please tell me the settings I could run them  on the laptops?

First one no question.  Cheaper and has a better video card and more ram.  That second one just has 2gb and a 9600m, not what you are looking for.

Yeah, the first one has better specs between the two, but unless portability is your main concern, I would get a desktop. You'll get much better performance for your money (even if you don't build it yourself) and you'll be able to actually upgrade it. I don't think I've ever not had issues with a mobile graphics card...

If you REALLY have to have the portability, then yeah the first one is better. But you are far better off going with a desktop. You can get a desktop that is much better than either of those for about half the price.

I think a dude asking about laptops wants portability.
Oh and First one IMO (what they said :D)

Ya no question MSI. More RAM, Bigger Hard Drive, better graphics card.
