Hey,
I am looking to get a good gaming laptop as I travel frequently and can't take a pc with me lol. I have a budget of about £600. If it is impossible for ultra settings can someone recommend me a build to get the best quality out of that amount please! Thanks in advance!

Although above your budget, the best 'budget oriented' gaming laptop know to date is the lenovo Y510P sporting a 750M SLI for about $1000.

Also I own a lenovo G505s with an A10-5750M and it holds itself quite well for its price range in some games. Being that its AMD based I'm not sure how well it'd fare in skyrim as I haven't tried it yet. Runs all source engine games maxed out though (like CSGO and L4D2) no problem at 720p. I like its build quality and minimalistic looks. Terrible tiny 5W speakers (on board audio with headphones isn't a stellar performer itself either but I'm picky on my audio so you might not notice it) and also horrid viewing angles on the screen though. Also I installed my own 4x2GB g skill SODIMMs and a samsung 840 EVO 128GB SSD to give it some extra pep.

(The stock configuration came with only 1 4GB stick causing a single channel memory bandwidth bottleneck and AMD APUs feed off of memory bandwidth. Also I've heard older asus G75 with a 670M going on sell refurbished for around $750-$800. Might want to poke around there. Be sure to report back to us your findings as I love to help :)
