Help me pick one of the damn laptops for gaming & video editing, please?

I need a new laptop pronto, and I have a bunch of Amazon gift cards to spend! There are a couple of deals on Amazon today, but I've bought some lemons before (curse you, Lenovo!!) and I'm hoping the more computer-savvy folks of Ask Metafilter can help me pick a non-lemon this time. More info below... [more inside]

.msi installer troubles

[WindowsFilter] By mistake, when I ran an .msi installer, I selected "Install for All Users" with a user that didn't have enough privileges. I don't need to install that application for all users, so I ran the installer again, but I don't get asked by the installer if I want to install it for the current user or all of them. It seems to remember my previous (and wrong) choice. Is there a way to force the installer to install it for only the current user?
