A gaming desktop in a trolley, might not solve the weight issue though

gaming laptops weight a lot, well that's if you want something half decent, that's not all design and aesthetics. Maybe look at a refurbish you'll get more for your money.

Depends how light you want it? most gaming laptops are not that light due to the extra components.

What games do you want to play and what settings quality are you looking to play them at?

Thanks for the advice

The games I'd be looking to play would be Gears of War 4 (Play anywhere title), FIFA, Battlefield 1, some decent driving games, Call of Duty

Thank you

It really depends on how future proofed you want to be. The one recommended above is not future proofed at all and a little light on RAM.

You may want to look for the following specs:

CPU i5 quad core minimum!
RAM 8GB (bare minimum) or 16GB better
GPU NVIDIA 1050Ti (bare minimum) or NVIDIA 1060 or AMD 470 better

There are other options for GPU like the GTX 980 which are also powerful but the support for the latest games will be less as they are previous generation cards.

The only thing is I would need a 15.6" screen as I would also be doing alot of work of spreadsheets and need the extra screen size, but thank you for the recommendation

I will keep that in mind.

If I wanted to upgrade a graphics card in future is that an option on a gaming laptop?

Thank you

Generally no. But companies like Dell Alienware have laptops that can use external graphic card "amplifiers". You can install almost any desktop graphics card in this. The laptop itself will have a lower to mid range GPU. A very expensive option (laptop + amplifier + card ) but flexible.

Upgrading the gfx card in laptops is tricky, adding more ram is easy which i was i recommended that, sorry didnt see the 15" requirement.

The 970m is better that the 1050ti which is where you are looking in your price range.

The HP omen might be your best bet but anything in the sub £1000 price range always seems to lack something.

I did have a look at HP Omen's, these are the two it came up with

I did see this model, there is no harm in trying I'll give them a call and post what they said.

They have 10/15% off systems all year round. A little SSD would make this a lovely little machine for the money. I'm looking at a 1070 still for a little more future proofing.
