I've got £500-£600 to spend on a laptop and i need it to be able to play games. I'm thinking Left 4 Dead 2 and Dragon Age for the mo. Unfortunatly i know nothing about laptops. I've always seen a home built rigs as the smart mans choice. Alas i am now at uni and in halls and had no way of getting my black behemoth of PC here. So i come to your, wise and venerable minds, to aid me. Basically I'm looking for the most bang for buck. If its good enough i might even be able to stretch a little out of my price range. Enlighten me.
