    Sorry, I don't know much about computers, but for that price, if it doesn't play games exceptionally, it's a rip-off.

    Sony's are a little pricey - they have exceptional aesthetics, but if you're interested in a good gaming rig, the main concern is CPU/memory and video performance.

    Alienware is just about to release their new machines with the new 8800M GTX GPU's which should be smoking for mobile solutions.

    You could put together a 17" wide, HP with a 8600GS mobile nVidia, and the same specs for a few hundred cheaper as well (better video, bigger display, less money).

    Again Sony puts together a nice machine, I just find them a little pricey if compare specifications.

    Would this Laptop be good for gaming though?

    Hell yes.

    Nvidia graphics cards are great for gaming.

    Looks like a great machine

    Alienware is probably better. Might be more expensive to custom make one though
