Hello,

I came across this laptop: TOSHIBA SAT P500-1DT
Core i5 ( 4star processor 2.4/2.66 Ghz turbo
18.4 inch screen
4 GB RAM
NVIDIA GFG310M 512 MB dedicated
W7 home premium
Battery life 2 hours etc etc.


My question is it worth £799, is it any good (for gaming) and does the short battery life justify the price?

No, this is not a great gaming laptop. The GTS 310M chip is pretty weak for gaming. At the very least, find something with a GTS 330M so you can get decent framerates on medium settings.

I would look at something like:

Not sure if that model is available in the UK or not, but try to find something in the Asus G73 series.
