  3. I went to buy this laptop but the site I linked only delivers
    within the US,

    Could anyone point me in the direction to buy this laptop
    from a reputable and trustworthy vendor that delivers in the UK,
    I'm living in London.

    Thanks you,
  4. There are many sites that deliver to UK but there is a problem with that, you have to pay the shipping cost + VAT(UK) which would cost you even more than its price in UK.
  5. Thanks for the advice in pickng my laptop Maziar but I
    find my question a little unasnwered, a link to a reputable
    dealer within the UK would be what I seek, I was wondering
    in your vast experience is there not a direction you could
    not send me please. .
  6. Have a look at this site:

    http://www.microdirect.co.uk/Home/Search/Computers/Laptops/

    I couldn't find anything with a decent graphics card to run WoW in the manner you requested though. However, take a look around and see if there is anything else on there that you like and run it by us in regard to being able to handle games, etc...
