  1. Hello and welcome to the forums :)
    Well i don't recommend going with the ASUS G70,because its outdated and there are laptops with better CPUs and graphics,such as Dell Studio 17

  2. Hi, thanks for your help!
    I've been looking at dell's studios for awhile now, with the next processor and battery up I can get the base price of that system to over £999 so I can use the 10% discount and get it for £745 + £20 shipping.

    Do you think this would be the best i can get for my money?

    Base Intel® Core™ i5-540M (2.53Ghz, 4 Thread, turbo boost up to 3.06 GHz, 3MB cache)
    Microsoft Operating System Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64bit- English
    Memory 4096MB 1067MHz Dual Channel DDR3 SDRAM [2x2048]
    Video Card 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5650 Graphics Card
    Hard Drive 500GB (7,200rpm) Serial ATA Hard Drive
    Optical Devices DVD +/- RW Drive (read/write CD & DVD) with DVD Burn software
    Wireless Networking Dell Wireless 1397 Mini Card (802.11 b/g)
    Standard Warranty 1 year Collect & Return Hardware Support included with your PC
    Primary Battery Primary 9-cell 85 WHr Lithium Ion battery
    LCD 17.3” High Definition+ (1600x900) LED with TL
  3. That looks a perfect config for your usage.
