Any suggestions on a laptop?

#1 Edited by Purpz (95 posts) -

Hi Duders, so here's the deal-eo. I'm getting a nice little bonus this month, and I'm thinking of getting a laptop so i can play some games on the go.

Now, I was looking at the Mx18 or the Razer Blade, but they're a tad expensive.

All I'm really going to be playing is Team Fortress 2 and Counter Strike : Source. So, if anyone has any suggestions and/or experience with some laptops, please do tell.

I would put my limit down, but it'll just be people posting the really expensive ones. Also, I do know it's going to be pricey, trust me.

So, any suggestions would be great. Thanks lads.

EDIT - Okay, my budget is probably about £600-£800

The first and most important rule: Make a budget. The next rule: Stick to your budget.

So you are getting a bonus but how much of a budget are you willing to spend?

@EXTomar: About £600 to £800

@Purpz: You really do not need that much power for those games. A notebook with 4GB of RAM, and an i5 Ivy bridge processor should be more than enough to play both of those without issue.

I've got the asus K52JC and i couldn't be more pleased with it. It plays those games easily.
