I need to buy the laptop soon since I move back to school in two weeks but I'm really stumped on which one to get. My biggest concern is how the CPUs stack up since I really can't find out much info on the T5850. I really need help if someone can explain to me which one would be the best choice in the long run. Thanks!

edit: My primary concern is gaming performance.

The one with the Geforce 8600 is the way to go then, although the other one will be a bit faster in non gaming tasks.

Not at all. The differences are fairly minor, with the nvidia slightly winning on graphics, and the other one slightly winning on CPU.
