My budget is between £400-£500, need the laptop to play Starcraft 2 and Warcraft 3 reasonably. I dont mind having the settings on the very lowest as long as i can run the games smoothly.

Requirments for SC2, (WC3 should be a breeze if i have these settings, no?)

•Windows Vista®/Windows® 7

•Dual Core 2.4Ghz Processor


•512 MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800 GT/GTS or ATI Radeon® HD 3870 or better

I will be using this laptop for a few years, so a 3 year warrent would help. School work, general internet use etc. (Movies, music) Possibly youtube videos, but this isnt a key part of uses. I dont have any preferences towards companys or brands for my laptop.

Thanks for your time.

The best option I could find in your budget range:
ASUS K53SC 15" notebook £480
Core i5-2430M (2.4Ghz) dual core Sandy Bridge CPU, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, 15.6" 1366x768 LCD w/ GT 520MX graphics.
A 3yr warranty would bust your budget goal.

You'll have a chance at running SC2 on medium graphics. But you might need to run at low+ graphics settings to get fluid game play.
