    Wanted: High End Laptop

    I am looking to spend up to £500/£600 on a laptop.

    I would ideally want something with a decent graphics card (not onboard) with 4gb RAM, at least 250gb HDD, good processor, 15 inch screen, etc.

    Not sure what brand but I thought a Sony Vaio or a Toshiba Satellite would be good. Unless I'm mistaken?

    I reckon I can get something like that for the budget I have set but can't figure out where to start and what's good value!

    Any ideas from anyone?

    I would stay away from a Sony Vaio you are really paying for the name. I have one it's ok when new but it scratches very easy. And the support is rubbish if you need a repair on it they tend to turn round and say you dropped it. I have 14 dead pixels on my screen after about 3 month of paying £899 for the laptop,they wont fix it told me it's my fault

    dunno if that will help the ACER I got in that thread is pretty good for the price

    I appreciate the advice about the Vaio.

    What is the graphics card like on the Acer?

    As for this not being top-end, thanks for threadspoiling with nothing useful to say. I talked about my budget and explained my specs. That is my ball park and 600 is hardly entry level price.

    Sounds and looks really good. High spec as wanted. Would you recommend this?

    I am absolutely loving it, only negative is that I have to get used to windows 7 been using XP for so long, also ACER's have a bad rep...its actually 10quid cheaper on ebuyer at the moment but I got it from comet cos I had vouchers and I got office 2007 for £50 extra

    I would defo ask for a few opinions though, as I have never had problems with ACER but I know a few people moan about them on here
