Intel i5 and Nvidia 540 should cope, Acer 5742G from £300

Guess it depends where you are...
Actually the deal I was looking at has expired,but if you look around try to retain the i5 CPU and 540m graphics, the Acer is reputed to handle Crysis and that's pretty impressive for a laptop...
Then i found this

If it's to be believed the 540M wouldn't be good enough, but the 630m is OK. As the 630m is reputed to be the same as the 540m, i'm confused. Anyway, point is if you go for any of the GPUs listed for GW2 it'll cost you a fortune. So sticking with Acer this is the best I could come up with

or

However, I still believe the 5742G would cope...

To be honest, without spending megabucks, Game playing on Laptops not desirable, for the same money you could get a half decent gaming rig with a dedicated GPU that will handle any setting you desire...
