    Cheesy,

    If your budget can stretch you might like these. Seem like a larger bookshelf speaker anyway!

    They are not proper bass bins!
    Sacriledge...
    Check http://speakerplans.com/index.php?id=myplay1
    stravens/shortman even jts are the people to see for some proper spl bins
    most bass bins struggle in cars due to not having enough air,i remeber my pal having a pair of alpine 10s that created a vacuum in his land rover,sounded horrible but was surprisingly powerful.
    Lazerdrome was mental back in the day annd most the jungle rigs were just rented off reggae soundsystem owners like myself :D

    Naaaa he wanted 2 grand for them, he was pretty desperate, I could smell the desperation, so I offered him £500, he wanted the 2 grand, we negotiated in between and I left happy...... always barter!

    Anyone who wants Deus Ex Human Revolution for PC (steam key) might want to look here.

    I'm not selling this, just bought 1 in fact, 2 left of 5 so get your skates on. Sorry if this breaks any rules mods feel free to delete.

    Need to find a gaming laptop for about £1000, depending on value for money (£+-£300). What do you guys have?

    Thanks, but probably not Medion, I need something with easy to find parts all over the world, that limits my choices to the major players (+Clevo chasis)

    Have you looked at the parts inside a laptop??? Their ALL THE SAME.

    Just because a DELL laptop uses an i5 450 doesnt mean any other laptop of similar spec doesnt or wont.

    Unless youre talking about going right down to the grain like swapping the mobo or chassis for something else then fair enough but i dont think youre that extreme.

    Its all the same.

    My old BenQ S73g was an 'Asia Only' model. but yet I could find parts for it on EBAY.

    Manufacturers use the SAME parts as each other but in different configurations. theres nothing different about them except the brand on the laptop.

    But cool, If you want to hate on Medion because youre afraid parts wont be available. I know differently of course, but I also do laptop repairs as well as desktop. And i have managed to get parts for even the oldest of laptops ive been asked to repair.

    so take your pick. MSI 660 is also a good choice.

    Definitely need factor in build quality when it comes to laptops even if they have similar hardware.
    I know most ACER users who owns their lowest end laptops are more likely break down than a laptop with same hardware,just because build quality was bad.
    £20 less for the GX660R than scan:
    http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/MSI_GX660R_1079124.html
    The GT550m quite good choice but 5870 still tops it:
    http://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/ASUS_N53SN-S1280V_1109848.html
    Or you can probably try and get the GT680R with GTX460m and sandy bridge CPU:

    Build quality is important, he is willing to pay a premium for that, because his old laptop overheats every so often even after shimming.

    Medion have good build quality. I have a few cousins who have their laptops and they are still working. One had a dead pixel after the first 6months but he sent it in and they fixed it for him.

    Netbookcheck gave medion gaming laptops 81-88%. what more could you want??? 99%????

    Even my HP DM1 scored 81%. and if you check on notebookchecks main page they currently have some gaming laptops from bespoke gaming laptop builders EVEN an Alienware M18x and theyve rated them between 82-88%.

    My friend's Dell scored 80+ and it suffered from overheating. That only manifest itself after long periods of use, something which reviewers will miss, just like Nvidia's fail mobile graphics. I will still get him to take a look, but as with all rich people they will not be bothered with it, which is why I still need "mainstream manufacturers" recommendation. You know how hard it is to convince Monster Beats idiots that their headset is shitty.

    i went to watch DJ VIBES when i was 15 at the laserdrome, i was the young kid with the pork pie hat, big chain and rings...:shadedshu lol... good times...

    i'm from doncaster so we grew up with the doncaster warehouse and loads of gypsies/travellers... it was lively man...lol

    one of my pals swears by Iration steppas sound system, not sure what he pays to rent it out though...
    he uses it down at SUBDUB in chapeltown leeds....

    its pretty mad watching everyones hair blowing in the bass waves....

    those other speakers i put up were just an example of whats available pal... :toast:
