My System Specs

Default Which Gaming Laptop for around $1000?

My cousin wants a new laptop to game with, despite him getting a laptop just half a year ago. Reason? "Oh it feels like it'll die" Wtf? A simple format Windows Vista and install Windows 7 will fix it. His laptop has over 100 processes anyways!

Anyways so we've narrowed it down to a couple laptops. The budget is $1000, but obviously the lower the better.

Canada Computers - Notebooks/Netbooks > Notebooks > 15.4"/15.6" Notebooks : Acer Aspire AS5740G-6454 Notebook - Intel Core i5-430M 2.26GHz, 15.6" HD, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, AMD RADEON HD 5650 1GB, DVD-writer, 802.11bgn, Gb LAN, Webcam, Card Reader, Wind

Canada Computers - Notebooks/Netbooks > Notebooks > 15.4"/15.6" Notebooks : ASUS K52JR-A1 Notebook, Dark Brown - Intel Core i5-430M 2.26GHz, 15.6" HD, 4GB DDR3, 500GB HDD, ATI RADEON 5470 1GB, DVD-writer, 802.11bgn, Gb LAN, HDMI, Webcam, Card Reader,

Gateway 15.6" Intel Core i3-330M 2.13GHz Laptop (NV5909H) - Black - Future Shop

HP Pavilion 15.6" Intel Core i5-430M 2.53GHz Laptop (DV6-2154CA) - White - Future Shop

HP Pavilion 15.6" AMD Turion II Ultra Dual-Core M660 2.7GHz Laptop (DV6-2164CA) - Future Shop

I really like the Gateway and the Acer laptop as they're both plenty quick and great bang for buck considering what he's using it for. However my cousin wants the HP with the AMD processor. It's slower in every way possible than the others. He was going to purchase it today and I was like fine, I did my job giving him advice. Then he said the reason why he wants that HP is cus he likes the keyboard. WTF? I got so pissed I just walked off and told my mom and in the end, he didn't buy a single laptop. His mom's gonna be so pissed tonight.

So anyways, what do you guys think? Which of the above laptops should he get? I'm definitely against the Hp with the AMD processor.
