Although I have a powerhouse desktop, I have started to travel more and my Early 2011 13' MBP is with my aunt, so I have a Core 2 Duo/320M MBP as my laptop, which can barely handle me typing, let alone games. Here are some requirements and the two laptops I am currently considering. Thanks!

Budget : £1,000-1,200
CPU : I5 or I7, preferably Ivy B.
GPU : AT least 5870M or 560M
SDD : Not required, but a 120GB or 240GB would be nice, depends on total price
HDD : No less than 500GB
OS/Software : Win 7 and Office Home and Student
Other : A 720p webcam would be nice, once again optional
Once again. thank you for your help, you guys also provided immense feedback on my desktop, which is great :D 

Considering :
Quick Specs : I5 480m 8gb ram 5870M 1tb hdd Win 7

~£1150 (config can be modified)
Quick Specs : I7 3610QM 650M 256GB M4 SSD + 500GB HDD Win 7

~£1,120 (config can be changed)
Configged with: Glossy 1080p screen, i5-3360M, 8GB 1333 RAM, 660M GPU, 500GB Momentus XT,Win 7 HP, Office H+S, and Arctic thermal paste

Forgot to say that I want a 1680x1050 or a 1080p screen that is 13'-15' and that I want to play Total WAr, Civ V, Minecraft, and TF2 on low or medium at 1680x1050. I will also be doing a dab of photo editing, but an i5 or i7 should handle it?...
