What is the best £750 notebook for music production and some mild gaming?

As I said the budget is £750 and the main games that will be played will be SimCity, DayZ, League of Legends and Starcraft 2.

Thanks in advance.

:)

    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=1715&compare=geforce-gtx-850m-2gb-ddr3-vs-geforce-gt-750m-2gb-gddr5
    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 :)
