Hi ive been looking at laptops for under £700 with decent specs for playing relatively new games. However I cant seem to find anything which is the right size at the right price. Size is important as my budget is stretched at £700 and i wouldnt be able to afford a new bag to carry a larger laptop than my current 15.6" one. Thanks for any suggestions

1_What is your budget? £700

2_What is the size of the notebook that you are considering? 15.6 inch

3_What screen resolution do you want? At least 1366 x 768

4_Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop? Portable preferably

5_How much battery life do you need? 3-4 hours. Battery life when playing games isnt important as it will be plugged in most of the time

Thanks for the suggestions. I looked at vaio e-series before but they underclock the graphics cards and im not sure if id be comfortable clocking it back to standard myself. Do you know of any uk websites which might sell asus laptops at a reasonable price as they seem to be really overpriced here compared to the US?
