PostSubject: Recommend me a laptop please   Fri Aug 19, 2011 6:15 pm

Alright I have been accepted into uni and so my dad is going to buy me a new laptop.

Problem is I have no idea about what I'm looking for. I want something that's reliable, not expensive (under £400) and can be used for gaming.

Blixtstorm gave me some specs I should look out for but the ones I find are either too expensive or have rather obscure companies :S So what I'm asking is can you point me in the right direction? post links or recommend me laptops that are of a decent price and can run relatively new games? All I really care about running is Oblivion.

This. Alienware is a ripoff and a cheap way to play games. They have mediocre specs at best and they are incredibly easy to fuck up. You're best off getting a gaming PC lykos.

I never had and never will have the intention to buy alienware.
Like I said, not expensive and it's for uni.... The primary purpose is for work. I have no idea how anyone even got the impression that I was looking to buy a gaming pc especially when I specifically said I'm lookin for a laptop and one under £400.

''and can be used for gaming.."

You aren't gonna find a $400+ laptop that can run modern titles.
