Get any of those except the Asus G70S-7S007C as it has the older 8700M GPU. The other two have the 4850M and GTX260M.

Please list:
1. Max budget.

2. What games?

3. How long do you wish the battery to last?

as much as I've been eyeballing the mobile gtx 260, you have to consider longevity of the system. These high end mobil gfx cards will get HOT. if I were you, i think I'd get something with a mobile 4650 and any 25W core 2 duo. This will allow you to game on the go (obviously not at high rez/high settings) and the laptop will live until you're ready to upgrade again.

Max budget is about £1400. Any modern games nothing in particular really. Battery life isnt a major concern. Any other suggestions. Is longevity is big problem with these laptops running so hot?

why do you want a laprop lol? they suck! get a desktop with 6gb DDR 3 ram, quad core 2.8 Ghz CPU and HD 4890 for a lower price! and that will kill those lap tops any day!

Agreed 100% with Onini. Laptop is AUTOMATIC FAIL FOR GAMING.

Thanks Maziar, that system looks great and a reasonable price too. I guess this would easily outperform the others ive listed. Shoul I expect build quality issue though? Thanks to sepayne21 too, its something to think about.

Okini and pluke, youre missing the point. Remember I need a laptop and I said I understand itll not be as good. Surely some gaming is better than no gaming.

You both hitting the reply key = Automatic Fail. [:thegreatgrapeape:6]

If you don't understand the desire or need, then move on or be removed. :hello:

No problem :) 
Sager's Build quality is very well judging from the reviews and the users who own it :)

I think the 15inch clevo is what ill go for and budget wise is just what i was aiming for. If i can annoy you just once more, graphics wise what can i expect say in comparison to an xbox 360. Ive no experience with this type of laptop. Thanks again for the invaluable advice.

Well it has GTX 280M which performs like a desktop 9800GT which is very good :)

You can't buy a killer gaming rig AND quality laptop with that budget?

If you must get a gaming laptop, understand that they aren't practical and you will be dealing with battery life problems.

Guess you missed the part about "Battery life isnt a major concern.".

They are practical just obviously not for you, more so for some people that a big desktop.
