    Hi guys, i am looking to purchase a new laptop for college this year, I play some games but it's main use will be work ;) , My max budget is £550 and I cannot order from the US, the spec should be decent looking for a comp with roughly: fast CPU, 4GB/6GB ram, 9600gt or 4670 and 320GB HD, with a 15.4 or less screen,BLUray is not a Necessity but would be nice. 0o one more thing spare parts readily available as laptops are hard to get fixed and i would prefer a Dell or an HP but any other brand with easy to find parts will be fine. THank you in advance! :) ;)

    finding a laptop with 9600GT and 4670 for around £550 is quite hard i can only sum it up to around 600-700 for a 2.10ghz 4670,2GB 320GB 7200 with vista.
    But i've check the 4570 which is in a performance range chart.
    From lowest to highest performance:
    source: http://forum.notebookreview.com/showthread.php?t=302231
    Its an dell studio 15.4 http://configure.euro.dell.com/dell...en&m_30=111789&oc=N0653502&rbc=N0653502&s=dhs with 2.00ghz,4gb ram and 320gb hard drive space as you can see the 4570 is next to 9600m GT so it shouldn't be too bad?
    Edit: @ troy thats over his budget its about £700+
    Bo$$ says thanks.

    i guess so, it will play them youd have to check with someone that owns one and games on it to be sure exactley of what max settings you can play at.
