    Lol same here four,same here. I want that lappy,mine is getting quite bad now for just idling o_O it gets loud and hot fast,probably because its a IGP and only have 1 ventilation lol. But then again probably because when i take it over to my GF and watch films on her bed the vent gets block most of time from her covers..Damn,i like my HP aswell,simple design but poor cooling solution,audio quality is great and in terms of performance,it can play L4D at low/medium settings and it can play CSS on medium too lol.

    Lol, you have your proper rig, I don't :'(

    My main complaint with my rig is actually not game related, its work related :eek:. Yes, I got annoyed because everytime I have to run my iterations. I can actually walk to the lab, run it on the i7 860's they have, and still be faster than if I run it on my laptop :shadedshu: Sucks to be a poor student :/

    Aren't you a international student though?? Having a laptop is perfectly fine for it =p wait till you get back and buy yourself a lenevo gaming laptop or something for cheap lmao,or build yourself a gaming desktop.

    Only reason i got a proper rig because i didn't fall into wanting a laptop back in the day and stood with desktop. Or i would be like all my chinese friends these days using laptop and my brother.
    My cousin was same but saw the light and build his own desktop because he wants power to play games.

    Yes, I am indeed a leech from the East, hogging up your state benefits <-- BNP said that. Laptop is a perfectly sensible idea, but a more powerful one would be better :p

    I wanted to build myself a proper rig here, but due to logistical issues (lightest mATX weighs over 10kgs) over summer holidays it never materialised :cry: Guess I am stuck with this laptop for the rest of my uni life.

    Oi, I'm not an international student! Admittedly I'm not even a student for next year because I'm doing an industrial placement over my gap year (scary thought moving 300 miles from home when I still don't know how to cook and have 3 months to teach myself and revise for A-levels!).
    FreedomEclipse, why not just take extra water rather than the probably fairly expensive laptop? If it's due to the way the weight's distributed you could surely get a roll top dry bag and fill that?

    Was planning to get one of those, but then my old laptop died at a bad time (reason why I came to TPU) and I didn't have the required moneyz. So, right now I am stuck with this laptop (suggested by Kuro here), which was a perfectly good buy until upgradititis kicked in.

    You hamsup lo.
    What we need is less racism in this damn country not more people speaking their own language,thinking if their chatting shit about someone,or better yet inform some of those parents who leaves their children to grow up as a ghetto dickhead and tell them to not be a moron.
    @fourstaff it is still a decent laptop for how much you pay for it, i would of got that myself if it was available still,but look at today jeez you can get a lappy with 5650m for £500 and you can play games like L4D,Blackops,battlefield etc etc in decent settings.

    Don't be a prat, home is over 13,000km away from me. Nice to hear that you are doing a gap year though, that option was not available for me (due to various reasons including signing a Faustian pact with my king).

    @ Kuro, yes, it was a very good buy, and still is. If its not for you I will be rocking suffering in a netbook.

    I'm not international :p

    In fact I'm not even a student anymore - I'm a part of the workforce :cool:

    Oh an the norwegians and swedes are the best european girls ;) Icelandic girls are also nice, but they aren't tecnically part of europe (yet).

    Netbook would of been crap to use,specially for uni use since you be stareing quite hard into screen to look at things your doing like making a essay or something,and i saw the promotion for the Asus when i bought my 5750,they gave me a promotional leaflet with their christmas deals.
