    Cheers. I'd ruled out netbooks and tablets for usability reasons. Don't mind second hand either.

    Hi all, I have an asus n55sl available for 450,
    It has the NVIDIA 635m in it, and i5 and 6gb ram! Plays most games on high to medium... Anyone interested?

    Cheers!

    Looking for a good gaming laptop, who would look for a bad gaming laptop?
    Anyway, no real price limit for me, but nothing highly overpriced, maybe around 1000$, could go higher if I wanted.
    Not really sure what games I'd be playing.
    Starcraft 1&2, previous Hitman games, Minecraft, Portal 1&2, others.
    Thanks for any help!

    The Y580 avoids the throttling issues that a lot of newer gaming laptops have and reviewed well at notebookcheck. Should easily run SC1/2 on ultra as well as all the other games in that list.

    I'm looking at one of these at the moment, following a recommendation.

    660M seems pretty decent.

    Hallo folks.

    I'm looking at buying a basic spec laptop for Office type stuff. Any recommendations on good places to go other than ebuyer? (Who have the best offer of any I've seen so far - Pentium 965, 15.6 screen 320hdd 4gb ram 229 after money back voucher)

    Thanks

    If you get a copy of PC Gamer, they have a 15 quid off voucher in it usually. I can find one for you if you need one.

    Friend bought a laptop from those guys and he said it was fine. I'm very tempted by the the inferno lappy.

    I recently bought a Sony Vaio E series for around 650 quid, it plays all the games I want to play (Fifa, Skyrim, Hitman, FO:NV) on high res (even though it defaults to medium/high usually)

    Touchscreen too \o/

    FIFA runs beautifully on my laptop too.

    Bit worried about the next gen consoles, will they result in FIFA using the old engine for 2 years on PC again? Also will my laptop even run a new FIFA engine

    Are you saying they're both ok, or are you being a cunt?

    Not knowing what sort of impact those pikey poker sites have on performance, I couldn't begin to guess.

    It's for poker as well, I was just saying that to get rid of that cunt.

    downloading music too.

    I was browsing for an hour lat night, but |I don't know what to look for.
    Dual cores and ram etc, it's a bit confusing for me.

    If you are going to d/l lots then go for a hard disk above 500gb. The rest doesn't matter too much since you only want to do basic stuff. I'd be tempted to say the one that's most comfortable to use, so weight (is it to sit on your lap?), touchpad size and keyboard would be my concerns. You could do worse than go and try a few in a pc store and see what you like.
