I am thinking of buying a laptop later this year. It's main use is for audio recording and extra sounds and stuff for use with my electric drum kit. Inevitably though i will want to put some games on it as i'll also take it with me whenever i go to visit my parents. When not being used for those things i'll probably use it as a secondary monitor on my PC. The budget is around 300-400 GBP. (500-650 USD) My preffered specs would be:
~12''-15'' Screen (Prefer DVI or HDMI)
Dual Core CPU of some sort (Preferably Core 2)
Nvidia or AMD Graphics (Something that would comfortably play HoN would be perfect. 7800GT is on the reccomended specs.)
>250GB 7200rpm Hard Drive
Battery which lasts a few hours of heavy use
Preferably new but would consider used.
Is it realistic to expect this for £400?
If so, does anyone have any suggestions?
HD5470 is the best graphics i have been able to find in a <£400 laptop and it still has the 7200rpm HDD with 2GHZ dual core and the full 4GB of RAM. Bit bigger than i hoped but i think i was asking a lot.
