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
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?...
