Found 28th Dec 2010
Hey Guys,

As the title says, I would like to upgrade from my current laptop (specs: amd turion dual core processor, 2gb RAM, 250GB HDD, integrated ati graphics), to the best possible laptop before the VAT increase.

Specifications that i would like:

Processor: An i3/i5/i7 would be great
Graphics: 512mb dedicated graphics minimum
Memory: 4GB RAM would be ideal.
HDD: 250GB is plenty, more is a bonus.

I have looked around and found a few items of interest, but I don't really have any experience of buying on-line and was hoping for a helping hand.

Thank you very much for your time :oD,

Stu

P.S. If the specifications are good enough this laptop will also become a desktop replacement, as my gaming machine is now 2 years old.

Sorry to bother you again mate, but i just found this deal while searching the deals section and was wondering if you could take a glance at it and let me know if it's worth the money?

it's got everything i wanted, only possible downside is the i3 is possibly not powerful enough, what do you reckon?

i reckon thats a pretty good machine. tosh usually get fairly favourable reviews, might be worth going over to videocardbenchmark.net/ and see what the video card is like for gaming...
