Howdy peeps, I have just been asked to recommend a gaming laptop for a friend with a price range of up to £1000. Desktop hardware I know but I am not familiar with laptops, has anyone got one they can recommend. Are the alienware laptops overpriced like the desktops?

There are many very good laptops out there now capable of gaming. Alienware is overpriced but are always reliable but there are a few gems by other companies out there. After a few mins of browsing i came across this one
that site has a good selection if you do not want to go with alienware.

Look at ASUS. They make some really nice gaming laptops that aren't too overpriced. The one piece of advice I give anybody looking for a gaming laptop is that if you want a gaming laptop make sure you're not paying for all the other bells and whistles that you don't need. A lot of manufacturers like to use "Gaming" as the catch all to throw ever single extra into the machine and over charge based on that. Things like Blu-ray, 3G/4G, SSDs, insane amounts of RAM and whatnot that are not necessary for gaming should be avoided if you don't want them because you will pay a heavy premium for such things in a laptop.

Cheers for the advice and cheers for the link to that little beauty from overclockers. I shall recommend that I think, they wanted a mac laptop (oooh shiny!!) but they also play games. Hence I recommended a windows based system as you get a better deal / better hardware and can play more games.
