banned#2
haven't seen it cheaper since but this was £399 in tesco couple of weeks ago got it for my mother
#3
This was £399 at Tesco 2 weeks ago - I bought one - really good laptop.
#4
bought this from tesco direct 2 weeks ago for 400 (390 with quidco) :-D

was it, missed that one. Well I already got a nice dell, but for those who want a decent laptop for gaming I have the same graphics card and it plays COD4 well!

I was looking at this earlier and I'm not really sure they can tout this as a 'gaming laptop'.

Even if you allow for the fact that playing (recent) games on a laptop is a torrid affair - this really isn't powerful enough to call itself a 'gamer' system - and that's before the "few games are supported on laptops anyway" caveat.

In 3DMark terms it comes behind my 3-year-old desktop (P4 3.2HT/8600GT) - that means you're below recommended spec. for almost anything released in the last year and barely at the Min. Spec for anything meatier.

You will be able to play things like The Sims or World of Warcraft - as well as older games like Half Life 2 etc. - but anything more recent will be horrible - I suspect.

Also - for a 'laptop' this thing weighs 3.5Kgs (thank the 8 cell battery) - you wouldn't want to haul that around far!!

At £500 it's nothing special - at £400 it was, perhaps, more interesting...

review from site:
I have just brought one of these laptops yesterday from overclockers and so far it seems a good buy at £499. The blu-ray picture is great and it has a hdmi socket to connect the laptop to a hd tv. I have installed crysis and it runs fine at 1024x768 on medium spec but on high it jerked when alot was happening on screen and i ran 3d mark 2006 and i got 3475 3d marks. The 250gig hard drive is split into 2 partitions and the Wireless LAN is very fast, there is a webcam with mic built in and that works well as my wife used it last night to talk to her friend on msn. All in all this laptop seems to be a good buy, well for me anyway.

tbh its a pretty good deal - the tesco one is irrelevant as it pretty much blew all other laptop deals out of the water at the time and is unavailable at that price now.

I suspect qualtiy wise running crysis @1024x768 on medium would be like playing the original 'Duke Nukem'
It may well run it, but your'e really only playing 1/2 the game due to the MASSIVE quality loss, which bears out therealjohnpeats point about it really not being branded as a gaming laptop.

I have actually run Crysis on this so can speak from personal experience. Does it play perfectly? No of course it doesn't. But what I could do was put the specs mostly on medium and get fairly fluent gameplay for the most part. It does stutter at times but is playable. The unusual thing is, is that there are no noticable performance increases in dropping the visuals down to low, it stutters the same amount whatever you do, the fps doesn't seem to change. For this reason I do consider this game unusually optimised and I hear that Crysis Warhead plays much more fluently on this laptop. But anyway, you may as well just keep the visuals on medium, and whilst you do get some pop up, overall it looks quite nice graphically and you can have the bells and whisles like physics on. This laptop is not designed to play Crysis but for £499, (or £399 if you were lucky enough to get the Tesco deal) it shouldn't be able to run it at all. This isn't a gaming laptop as such, but handles everything other than Crysis with ease and really is better than most systems you could pay up to double for. Lets make no mistake that this is not a gaming laptop, but is also a grand cheaper than an MSI or something and does include a nice screen and blu ray etc. If you consider that extra money to be worth it, then so be it, I just don't. So Crysis isn't perfect on this system, but can be played, but because I got this for £100 cheaper, I can't vote hot.

The big issue is that you want to be playing at the screen's native res. (1366*768) - playing in 1024*768 (even perspective corrected) is going to look AWFUL (3DMark06 is based on a lower res than this and you'd be seeing <15fps for most of that here).

A "gaming laptop" is tied to it's screen's res. and at least this one's isn't too high. Some Dell XPS systems ship with 1900*1200 displays and simply do not have the horsepower to run games at that res...

All I'm saying is that people shouldn't see 'gaming laptop' and think "ooooh - that means it will run the latest games on decent settings' - because this laptop is a 3-year-old desktop at best...

If having the ability to run older games reasonably well again 3.5Kgs of deadweight is a fair-trade to you - then this is maybe worth a look tho

i have this got it from tesco its not by any means a serious gaming laoptop but its better than people say. Im playing assassins creed which is no slouch on demands on 1366x768 with all settings at max nd im playing fallout 3 at 1366x768 with all settings at medium both play seamlessly no lag or anything and probably culd get more out of it on fallout 3 havnt bothered trying

load of carp any games that old it will destroy it plays games of late 2008 on medium levels at max res perfectly maybe better your not going to be able to play games like GTA4 but atm i would say it can handle any other game

I called it a 3-year-old desktop because it benchmarks/runs the same games as my 3-year-old desktop - amazingly...

I can play COD4, Fallout3 etc. - just - but nothing newer and so I'm questioning a 'gaming laptop' which won't be able to play upcoming games - is all.

Given that a laptop which could play upcoming games will be 2-3 times the price you cannot argue - I just want people to know what they're getting.

If games really matter - a desktop which costs £500 would do SO much more for you - and be upgradeable etc. - so unless you REALLY need the portability, why bother?
