Pain in the bum carrying the base unit, monitor, mouse, keyboard and speakers around with me though! It's not the same thing so can't be compared.

So what would make it a gaming pc? Decent screen, decent gpu, decent cpu, decent RAM, pratically nothing it cant play. What's it missing? Sorry, if you're going to make such a strange statement, you're going to have to elaborate a little more....

Don't listen to the bitter nerds, it's a bloody good rig for that price mate. I've been looking for something with a class 2 gpu in it for a low price and this fits the bill. Hot!

This other deal is good too...

1) no comparison, meaningless comment.You couldn't fairly compare a cars performance with that of a motorbike now would you?

2) Again you are talking out of your brown eye, it IS a mid range gaming laptop - its even not up for debate. You obviously know jack about computers but like to throw your opinion abut like an expert.

Nice fail.

This is a lovely spec for a laptop, its quite big an heavy tho but for £500 its very good.

It is a portable gaming machine, but to be honest, I think laptop gamers are going to be a thing of the past soon because people are using PS3 and XBOX etc more.

I have owned something very similar, just with a different processor, one thing I will say is the laptop seems very good quality, the keyboard is a little poor and it gets hot + fans on a lot of the time. Speakers are good.

total myth, pc gaming is still very big. why would intel/ati/amd/nvidia spend so much developing hardware for a dying industry? - they just wouldnt. Plus console graphics are poor quality compared to pc titles, keeps a lot of people hooked on pc. If anything console gaming will decline over coming years with the introduction of cloud gaming.

Hmmm, price is only slightly less than my 17" 1920x1200 p8400 2.26ghz with 3gb of ram two years ago. Either prices have gone up a lot or I got a really good deal :)

not on bt phones lines it won't and when people turn round and say f-t enough is enough, I'm not paying £479 for a gfx card anymore. Amd/Ati/Nvidia will flood the planet.

cloud gaming from a console? a console that might well be subsidised.
The next generation of consoles might still have a lot to offer. BTW you've comapred current PC graphics to 5 year old console design. Latest console tech has generally always been better due to its custom design. Started way back when PCs had no sound or graphics cards. The PC only catches up due to the life span of a console.

I own a dell m1530 xps, good laptop right up to a year when your warranty runs out then the problems start, have a look at forums about dell laptop issues before diving in.

Think you better check facts on this statement, Take a look on what the graphics cards are in the all 3 gaming console`s and then check what graphics cards were around for the pc, the price might have been more for pc cards but then games are cheaper, ten times better graphics and you can do lots more and upgrade more on pc.

I not knocking console units as use them myself but i also use pc and its way better in everyway

The consoles don't use "cards"
They've always used less powerful GPUs installed into custom architecture, it is well proven in the games industry. If you go back a a couple of generations PCs didn't even come with GPUs or sound processors.

The proof is in the games, not your on-paper 'facts' and power of the highest end card available. Go all the way back to the Amiga and SNES, they did many games better than the PC with less raw power and vastly less memory.
As did the Playstation 1. 3D platformers, fighting games and arcade racers were totally laughable on the PC, as they were when the Xbox 360 was released.

I guess if you like big numbers and filling up RAM slots, then hey the PC is better in "everyway"

The next gen consoles will probably better for gaming than a current PC with far less resources at a fraction of the cost.
The PS1 did arcade quality at £250 at xmas 1994, when a Pentium 166-200mhz PC cost well over a £1000 with no dedicated graphics, the best game being Doom II.
The most advance gaming 3D graphics in those days were in the arcades.

price sounds about right...

Its a midrange gaming laptop with a nice enough spec. The GFX card is often the primary deciding point on performance in terms of Laptops, and this GFX is indeed middle range. New games will need a few settings turned down, older games won't need that so much. If your game colleection is generally older games with only rare new titles, one of these would probably be excellent.

Given the price and spec, I'd say its a good deal.

If you mainly buy new games that are really machine heavy, then your mileage on these midrage units will vary. But thats no reason to bash the unit. At the end of the day, we can pick up wonderful machines these days for £500. And a couple of years ago, to reach even half the capability you would have had to spend a lot more. Its all good!

But now, an £85 GPU (5770) could match anything that the xbox 360 throws out and its dated in terms of new cards! Sure, when the next generation of consoles come out they will probably be able to compete in graphical terms with pcs but as the pc gaming market moves forwards, the console market must wait for its next "leap". At this moment in time, if you want the best graphics and fastest game play, you have to go pc. Even more so if you like tampering with your games! (that all said, I play twice as much xbox as its more relaxed lol)

I just got this exact spec apart from the HDD, which on mine is 640GB (7200rpm). Plays most games well, can play Test Drive Unlimited 2 at almost full graphics and F1 2010 at full pelt, not really tested any first person shooters on it though. Forget what the benchmark nerds are saying, this is a good machine for the price. Not many laptops with this spec for that price, espicially with a dedicated GPU.

I know this has been said a million times, but if you want this spec cheaper and don't care if its new and shiny out the box you should try dell outlet store. I got this machine for £340 delivered, supposidly scratch and dent, but I can't see any signs of damage on the machine what so ever. Maybe I got lucky, but a few others seem to have the same story from dell outlet. Worth a try I would say.

posted this one yesterday:

£60 more but with i5-480M quad core processor over the i3-380M dual core processor and a slightly larger HD. Does the better processor really make much difference for the extra £60 or is it best to save the cash and go with this one?

When you go to check out, it changes to Inspiron N5010BTS, not Inspiron 15R, whats up with that
