Thanks in advance.

These are great laptops, and will game and handle music production.

Also buy this. If your going to have the laptop on your lap you need it to be cool.

That's pretty solid. If you can try and go for the Lenovo Ideapad Y510p though.

the cosmos gets an I7, 8GB RAM and a gtx 850M - the gtx 850M is around 40% faster than the 750M http://www.game-debate.com/gpu/index.php?gid=2136&gid2=...
furthermore there is no dedicated site to cube laptops that i've found, so I personally wouldn't trust them.
and the lenovo y510p is not available in the UK for anything short of £930.

From what I've looked up the cube laptops seem to actually be manufactured by saveonlaptops who seem to be recommended in a lot of places, so that explains the lack of information on them. But I'll be sure to take both of your recommendations into account when I decide :)

I've also seen one on amazon, which had good reviews.
