Problem about buying a laptop is the upgrading. Somehow I just doubt the performance of GT 555M. A desktop wouldnt be a problem because the buying and changing of GPU is easy.
However since she wont be starting school until august 2012, id suggest getting a desktop for now, and when the time for school starts, use whatever money saved on a gaming laptop to buy a decent mid-ranged laptop for both school and home use.
