Hello, everyone - I'm in the market for a gaming style laptop with a full HD resolution display or very close to it e.g. 1680 x 1050. I'm a graphic/web designer so I'm not so much needing the gaming functionality as the power/graphics/ram and screen size - price is an issue ideally I'd like to spend under 700 quid any recommendations?
