Hey guys. Im stuck deciding between two laptops. Im getting one for college, well that's my excuse for getting one ;)
Im going to be using it for multimedia, and some light gaming.(Minecraft, maybe left 4 dead 2, etc.) These are the two I am deciding between;

Tell me what you think I should get, or which you would personally get.

Also if you have any suggestions, please leave something that is $800 or less. And I REALLY would prefer a 1920x1080 display.

If gaming is a key factor, get the sony since it has a dedicated video card. If you can live with intel's integrated graphics i'd get the asus since it has haswell and will offer better battery life and i, personally i think it looks better.

Lets be honest here, the asus has a touchscreen which is nice, however since u said u like gaming, even on a light scale, then you should get the sony because that actually has a dedicated 740m graphics card which will play most all games well, where as the 4500integrated chip(or whatever they called the new intel GMA graphics adapters) is pretty much maxed out by youtube.

I see your point, but touchscreen could help with windows 8. And gaming aside, would you still make the same choice? Any other thoughts?
