new laptop

I went with the second one listed below and I can't wait to get it! This will be my first new computer in 8 years!

So this is not the post I was working on yesterday but this came up yesterday and I wanted to ask all of you for a bit of advice. I will be posting a new regular update soon though but until then, My wife and I have been discussing getting a new laptop for me so we can at least skype together when she is away for Navy training. We finally decided to go for it yesterday and I started researching. I really want something that will last for a while technology wise and I'm looking to spend around $1000. I have customized a laptop on AVADirect for about $1100 that I like a lot but I was curious if you guys have any suggestions. What I have so far is this:

+ GAMING LAPTOP, Clevo W251HPQ Core™i7 Gaming Notebook, 15.6" HD Glossy LED LCD, Intel® GMA HD / NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 520M 1GB Graphics
·  CLEVO, W251HPQ-Q Core™ i7 Notebook Barebone, Socket G2, Intel® HM65, 15.6" HD LED Glossy, Intel® GMA HD / NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 520M 1GB Graphics
·  INTEL, Core™ i7-2720QM Quad-Core 2.2GHz, HD Graphics 3000, 6MB L3 Cache, 32nm, 45W, Retail
·  CORSAIR, 8GB (2 x 4GB) PC3-10600 DDR3 1333MHz SDRAM SODIMM, CL9, Non-ECC
·  SAMSUNG, 500GB SpinPoint MP4, 7200-RPM, 16MB cache, 2.5-Inch, SATA 3 Gb/s, OEM
·  CLEVO, Blu-Ray Reader and Super-Multi DVD±RW Optical Drive for Clevo W251HPQ
·  NETWORK, Built-in 10/100/1000 Mbps Ethernet LAN Card
·  INTEL, Centrino® Advanced-N 6230 Wireless and Bluetooh Module, IEEE 802.11a/g/n, 11/54/300 Mbps, Internal PCIe Half Mini Card
·  NOTEBOOK ACCESSORY, AC Adapter 100-240V (Included)
·  MICROSOFT, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition w/ SP1, OEM

I would really appreciate any input you all have.

Or maybe something along the lines of this, I'm leaning toward this one:
