Hey so I'm looking for a laptop that's ~$1000 at most (preferable less) from this website/store:

http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/home.aspx


I need it to run PokerStars, Skype, AIM, and other various programs at once with no hiccups or slow downs. It also needs to be available in store (I'm going to get it tomorrow or Saturday for this weekend). I found this one that seems pretty solid, but I'm wondering if there's a better one for around the same price?

Thanks for any info/help!

That's a pretty nice machine... that GT 630 may overclock nice too.
