Hello everyone.
I have found two laptops I'm reaaaaaally interested in.

Here are the links. They are almost the same price at the moment and I think I already know which one is the winner but I would like all your guys and gals opinions before I buy one.

The requirements are pretty modest, even a cheap laptop will have way better specifications than the ones you mentioned,
Unfortunately (or fortunately) you won't find a laptop with a Pentium 4 CPU, 512 MB RAM, and Windows Vista any more.
You mentioned you'd be gaming, so you probably wouldn't want to stick with those minimum specs.
Out of the two devices you mentioned, the Lenovo is a clear winner.

Lenovo has a Core i7, Asus has a Core i5.
Lenovo has a 1TB HDD, Asus has 500GB.
Lenovo has NVidia graphics, Asus has Intel HD Graphics.
Lenovo has a DVD burner, Asus doesn't.
Lenovo has a 4cell battery, Asus has a 3 cell battery.

The only advantage Asus has over the Lenovo, is that the Asus has a touch screen. If you want a touch screen laptop which behaves like a tablet at times, go for the Asus. If you want a normal laptop that's powerful, go for the Lenovo. If I were you, i'd pick the Lenovo.
