Il try and keep this short:-
Need a new laptop, got $800
Will be primarily gaming - im fine with running on lowest graphics and other relevant factors but what I do want is decent fps (30<) when it comes to raiding and busy pvp (I dont know how feasible that is for this price range).
Kinda does have to be a laptop becaude Im going to Uni soon, a good bit of memory would be nice but not a necessity, im not too fussed about weight or battery life though.
Any comments are great!!
Has an i5, and good graphics (gt740m)
My only gripe is it has only 4gb of ram, but as long as you arent multitasking too hard most games should be fine, else you can upgrade it yourself (luckily its one on the only things you can upgrade in a laptop).
Leights Reid's laptop is a little under powered for gaming; its processor is a ULV design (ultra low voltage; meant for powersaving) and the graphics are no better the intel 4th gen Integrated graphics (not hating, just stating a fact.) The only real benefit is the 8gb of ram which is honestly not that important.
Construkt's suggestion is a very good one, if you can find that specific model at that price on your end (in the UK).
Else my suggestion is the best i can really find for you, with limited knowledge of where to buy laptops on the UK.
the i5 4200m is a full powered processor, and more than enough for gaming,and the GT 740M is sufficient for moderate gaming.
Get the Lenovo Y410p if you can find it at that price range on your end else; aim for something with similar specs as mine (albeit a bit more ram).
