Is it worth getting a laptop for gaming on a fairly low budget?

Well I'm planning to buy myself my first laptop. Got a price range of around £600-£700

Is it worth buying a laptop capable of playing games on this budget? I'm pretty into gaming, but it seems like most new games will run horribly on anything less than a £1000 laptop with a decent video card.

Could anyone reccomend a good laptop for gaming around £700? I'm thinking of just sacrificing the ability to play games for something lighter and with better battery life. In which case I still wouldn't know what to look at getting.

  1. Dell VOSTRO 1500 and XPS M1530 are very good for that range
    they have 8600M GT which can play games good on medium settings

    I agree. XPS M1530 sports the DDR3 version of the card, it's the best card you can get in this price range. And it's good at OC, too.
  3. Had a quick look and it seems pretty good from the benchmarks and reviews.

    If I was to go down a different route and go with something with better battery life, is there anything you could reccomend?

    Looks like the M1530 could handle something less than 2 hours playing games. But it seems most performance laptops have similar short battery life.
  4. More power > less battery life. An XPS M1530 with 9-cell battery is a good bet.
  5. 6 cell replacement Dell XPS M1530 Battery is OK !
