For gaming, go with the sony laptop. The GPU with Dell is not good for gaming at all

i have a dell studio 1555 laptop which is 13 months old and is out of warranty.last night as i was surfing the net a red vertical line appeared on the left side of the screen and it refuses to go away.i have tried restarting and have updated display drivers but it is still there.what might be the reason for dis???kindly help.screen size is 15.6 inch with 1366*768 resolution.tried talking to the dell customer care and they said i have to extend the warranty by paying rs14000 to fix dis as the screen will have to be replaced and this is the only solution.should i get it done from a local laptop service shop coz i am not ready to pay dis much.the red line is thin and is vertical.i have heard dis is common issue wid dell screens bt da customer care salesman said it does happen bt he is not willing to bargain.kindly help me sort dis out if anyone have experienced the same.

I was thinking of getting a laptop from the US, I am stuck on the choice Between
ASUS N61Jq-X1 and Dell Studio XPS 16.
ASUS has USB 3.0, and Dell has a superb screen and looks and 9cell.
Other specs are same, i7, 4gb ram, ati 5730 graphics.

I heard ASUS laptops are very reliable, is it true?

Well which one is better guys, here are the configs:

Acer 4740G ( Intel i5 , nvidia 310m 512 mb, 4gb ram and 500 gb hard disk, 14 inch)

OR

Dell Studio 15 (i3 processor, 2 gb ram and 320 gb hd, with ati 4500 card (512 mb), 15 inch)

I'm from Nepal, and this is literally the last two options i have after searching the market and comparing most of the laptops. i have to make a decision between these two. Which one should i go for guys? According to the specs, the Acer does look better, but i heard there are complains regarding Acer laptops and Dell Studio is preferred. Btw, is the graphic card Ati 4500 in dell studio 15 (1558) a really old one? cause most of the new laptops have ati 5470. Help me guys!
