Not sure where to put this but hopefully I can get some insight. Thanks
So here is what I will be using the laptop for:
- Multimedia Design (Graphics, Web, and some Audio/Video [rarely])
- Gaming (Mostly Star Wars The Old Republic)
- Regular Usage (Web, E-Mail, Music)
Need some assistance, Pro's and Con's between these 2 laptops.
ASUS G74SX or the Sony Vaio VPCF236FM/B
These are from BBy. Thanks in advanced, need some help with both of them. I know the obvious one of Sony w/ Blu Ray player and HD with ASUS not having those features. But need some more assistance and comments/suggestions. Thanks

I wish I were shopping for a Gaming-capable laptop! I'm excited for you.
Well, it looks like that Sony Vaio VPCF236FM/B is currently sold out on BestBuy.com but, just for comparison, which model of the ASUS G74SX did you have your eye on?
For others refernece, here are the links to check out each of the laptops and their respective specs:

Well, I'm honestly not the best resource for Gaming PCs but the Asus G74SX-BBK8 and Sony Vaio VPCF236FM/B seems to go pretty head to head in terms of specs. They are definitely in the same weight category (to use a wrestling metaphor) and either should be good for the uses you mentioned. I would also recommend consulting with our store Computer Specialists if it's convenient as they have a wealth of knowledge to offer for questions like these.
Anyone else in the Community have any thoughts?
