I'd like to be able to play Counter Strike Source or other FPS games and I use things like Photoshop on a dialy basis.

I have a Toshiba Satellite now and it has overheating problems so I wouldn't get a Toshiba again.

an amd 4000 doesnt mean 4 ghz i think. anyway i would go for the gateway, it has the most features and a faster processor processsor.
