    Laptop Advice

    can anyone suggest a laptop for around £700 that would be fairly decent for gaming?

    i'm looking ideally for:
    core 2 duo
    1gb Ram
    DVD writer

    and a decent dedicated gpu

    any suggestions?

    Wow thanks for that find, have you had any experience with them?
    Are they a trusted company?

    Thanks for this, my friend was gonna buy a Dell laptop for alot more, with basically the same specs.

    Not had personal experience but i am going to buy one.. they have a forum...i have a link on my home pc so will post that tonight.

    PcPro have reviews for them and they are very good.

    One thing I heard is if you offered a slot loading dvd writer...dont have it as its not very good..

    There will always be advantages to buying dells due to the onsite warranty you can get...apparently there a few revisions of the 6214w that overheat under heavy loads i'm sure those sort of problems are getting ironed out over time.

    But with any laptop I would use a laptop cooler because they all got hot after intesive use.

    the matte one does apparently but the gloss is supposed to be quite good.

    I believe they scrapped the matte screen becuase it sucked.

    Just gloss now.
