1: You should not buy a LAPTOP .. but as your choice...
2: Linux is shit for gaming
3:i would say the Aspire but without linux ( change to win 7 ) [ win 8 is crap { for me } ]

Okay, so the thing is i take my laptop with me when i go somewhere (ex. friend's house) and i need a decent laptop for gaming and editing. I can replace linux with Windows if i want, but i all i needed is answer for which one should i pick.
It's not mostly the OS im playing on, it's the specs that pc has i think.

Also, i think i would go for the Aspire as well.

Thanks for answering, i really appreciate it!
