Laptops will always date quick with regard to graphics, it can't be helped, they're not as flexible as normal PC's where you can easily upgrade parts, does it have to be a laptop?
Also the graphics power / £ ratio is pretty appauling on laptops compared to a normal PC.

Saying that I have a XPS M1710 from Dell which serves me very well and looks great with Vista and Aero on it, but I got this from a reseller undercutting Dell by £400 @ the time.

Have a gander @ http://www.rockdirect.com/ see what you think.

I recommend the PCNextDay machine. I bought a laptop off them last year and it runs every game I throw at it thanks to the dedicated 256mb ATI X1600. Very competitively priced and I'm fairly sure they're built around a Fujitsu Siemens chassis.

The only thing you'll have to do is hack the latest ATI drivers so you can use them, this will give these laptops a massive performance increase. Laptop graphic card drivers can be a real swine and you're supposed to rely on your laptop manufacturer to supply them.

I think the program you use to mod them is called DHMod.

Has anybody had problems with PCNextday? Doing a quick Google search has suggested problems with customer support and warranties.

The Zoostorm Laptops can't be beaten for price but I would be worried about support if the system screws up.

I would be happy to be persuaded otherwise as I too am looking for a reasonably priced mid range gaming laptop.
