Question 1st laptop - ASUS vs SONY

I'm about to purchase my first laptop ever.
I am well versed in computer jargon; built, modded and oc'd several pc's recently.

My firm requirements:
- 1600px horizontal resolution or more
- non-glossy screen, unless it's uber-bright
- 4GB RAM or more
- 320G drive or more
- non-slippery wrist-rest area
- full keyboard + keypad

Wish list:
- 800$-1200$
- Intel > AMD
- 2nd HDD bay, for RAID capability in the future, maybe SSD's

Interesting models:
- ASUS K72JK - i5 430M / 4G / 500G / HD5145 / 17.3", 850$
- ASUS N71JV - i3 350M / 4G / 500G / GT325M / 17.3", 930$
- SONY VPCEC25 - i3 350M / 4G / 500G / HD5470 / 17.3" / BluRay, 999$
- SONY VPCF1290 - i7 720M / 8G / 320G / GT310M / 17.3" / Big Battery, 1175$

- SONY VPCF120 - i5 430M / 4G / 500G / GT310M / 16.4", 1100$ (only@futureshop, bleeeeh)
