    laptop

    is it worth me building my own laptop?

    having trouble deciding what to get, built my own pc but not sure how hard and about specs for laptops.

    got a budget for around £500-600 is that enough?

    You stand very little chance of building your own lappy tbh. Parts are traditionally rare, limited sources & expensive, I would just buy one.

    Re: laptop

    The only barebones really available only let you choose cpu, RAM and HDD (dvd etc..) what are you looking for exactly?

    Oh yeah..

    Graphics are a little bit worse still but the specs are huge and the laptop is small and light

    Screen lets it down a little apparently but having never seen it I couldn't comment.

    Re: laptop

    If you can afford one yeah. They start towards the end of your budget and you need one with an 8600GT to be worthwhile over the studio as the 8400gs and 3450 are comparable.
