Im looking at a new gaming laptop. Im looking for something that will be suitable for 2/3 years (ie a laptop that in 3 years time will still run most new releases even if its minimum graphics etc).

My budget is about £1000 and i dont need an OS.

Im thinking about this one (but im open to other ideas)

with the ram increased to 16gb 1333 or 8gb 1600 (which is best)

my concern is that its a 2.2ghz laptop... arent there games already that reccomend higher? eg crysis 2 wants 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo. Would it be worth increasing to the i7 quad core 2.2ghz.

Im totally out of the hardware loop. I used to understand it when you needed a 486 or a 233mhz. but theres so many variables now!

thanks for the advice.

That laptop will work just fine. A 2.2 Ghz i7 will be as fast, if not faster, than a 2.66 Ghz C2D.

You shouldn't need more than 8 GB of RAM, unless you do heavy video editing/rendering.
