    I'm in the market for a new laptop!
    i'm after one for roughly £500-£600 but i want it to be good for gaming.
    i know thats not a lot of money for a gaming laptop but is there any alternatives with good specs around in a secret place i don't know of? or am i gonna have to do the unthinkable and go to Currys........
