So I realise this question is asked again and again and is probably really annoying but personally I think its a question that needs to be asked again and again as newer laptops with new technology is released on such a regular basis nowadays! So heres me, asking again ;) 

1_What is your budget?
£800-£850 (if its obviously a little bit more but well worth it then ill consider it lol)

2_What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?
Any size

3_What screen resolution do you want?
Any resolution (what do people recommend for gaming?)

4_Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop?
Not important

5_How much battery life do you need?
Not important

6_Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low,Medium or High)?
Yes
Red Alert 2 - High (lol!)
Doom 3 - High
Red Alert 3 - High
Left 4 Dead - Medium or High
COD 4 and 5 - Medium or High

7_What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo / Video editing, surfing the web, playing music, watching movies, Etc.)
Practically everything! From listening and watching music and movies to editing and making them, and programming too. Games as well obviously :) 

8_How much storage (H.D.D Capacity) do you need?

www.novatech.co.uk
www.play.com

10_How long do you want to keep your laptop?
As long as possible but considering my budget at least 2 years.

11_If you would like to mention some other things about purchasing your ideal laptop, post them.
My budget is the BIGGEST factor so thats priority number 1. The graphics capability is the 2nd biggest factor since in my experience, it's the gaming graphics that reach their limit in laptops before anything else. I also prefer Nvidia over ATI but this isnt a deciding factor. If its Nvidia i'd like at least a 9600M GS. I dont mind Intel or AMD for CPU.

12_Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons.
N/A

13_What country do you live in?
UK

Here are the best laptops I could find after searching for hours for the price range! Im not expecting to play Crysis on high settings considering my budget but obviously the best bang for buck.
