I'm having a hard time picking a laptop. I’m looking for a desktop replacement that has the best gaming value and also that has a decent processor for multitasking and Adobe Illustrator work. The problem is that I live in Romania, and many options you recommend are either more expensive or end up being more expensive (international shipping for example). I’m not really brand oriented, but I want a sturdy, well-built laptop. At least throw some aluminum in to fool me :). I’m currently having trouble deciding between http://www.tocmai.ro/laptop-hp-probook-450-cu-intel-coretm-i5-4200m-2-50ghz-16785476.html , http://www.tocmai.ro/laptop-dell-vostro-3560-cu-8-core-i7-cu-4-giga-ram-ddr3-16257635.html and http://vandlaptop.ro/laptop-k551lb-xx226d-procesor-i7-haswell-video-2-giga-sigilat-2300-ron_a50918.html . The HP is used for 3 months, has a 12 month warranty and is priced at 525$. The Dell is almost new, the seller said it was used only for a couple of days and HDD Sentinel says it’s been used for 19 hours. I don’t know if it has a FHD screen or a backlit keyboard, but those features would really make it shine. I don’t think it has any kind of warranty. It’s priced at 560$. The Asus is 665$ which is over budget, but it’s brand new, sealed, with a 2 year warranty. For comparison, it retails for around 800$ in my country. If you could help me choose, I’d be really thankful!
If you wish, you can have a look around a few classified ads sites and see if you can find something worth the money.

For price comparison I’ll post the websites of a few romanian online retailers:

Thanks a lot, hopefully you’ll help me decide!

Go for the Asus. I couldn't read some of it, but the Asus seems to be the best out of the bunch. It could handle some serious gaming (I think). The other 2 have AMD based cards, which are nice but Nvidia shines for gaming. It may be over budget, but it's still sealed and will hand tasks like a champ.
