Laptop $700-$900 help please

Hello nation, I have been looking for a laptop for school/moderate gaming. The two laptops I have found that seem to be good are as follows:

Asus K52Jr-X2: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...#detai lspecs

ASUS A52JR-X: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834220699


Need some help deciding between the 2 of them, tough decision. I am open to any suggestions you may have, these are just the two that stuck out to me.

Buying a laptop for gaming is bad.

Buying a laptop for gaming and expecting to bring it to class on a daily basis is worse.

Netbook and a desktop would be a better choice.

Agreed

moderate gaming desktop [hell you could go AMD plus a 48xx series with prices these days], + a netbook

Ok....moderate gaming means things such as CSS which not demanding at all. I appreciate the responses but I do understand that there is no such thing as a cheap gaming laptop.

I was going to buy that one from newegg that you have posted but I decided to buy something with a lower end graphics card or built in gpu mostly and save a few hundred and build a desktop with the money I saved and spend maybe a few hundred more and build a good desktop.
