Thinking of getting a laptop

Starting next month, my beloved employer has deemed it fit our department work nights.
So in anticipation as there are going to be many spare hours to while the night away, I am thinking of getting a gaming laptop that I will link up to my mobile for internet access. (cant use works net, all restricted).

I dont want to spend anymore than 400 and hope it will run most modern games.

Gief hleps pls cause I know ****all about lappies.

Re: Thinking of getting a laptop

i dont think you will find a laptop with a great gfx card for that sort of money that will run modern games.

Re: Thinking of getting a laptop

The Dell Latitude 620 and 630 are decent laptops, not sure how much they would fetch these days. There OK for decent gaming but not shure they would hold up on the modern games

TBH you're probably better off spending the 400 quid on a PSP and a **** load of games

Re: Thinking of getting a laptop

Looks like you can quadruple that if you want to get anything that will play the latest games with any degree of performance. And even then it'll be out of date in no time with no possibility for upgrades.

Re: Thinking of getting a laptop

The only way your going to get a decent lappy for that money is ebay.

Just remember never buy anything on a sunday. As this is the most expensive day.
Try to find a listing with spelling mistakes.
watch it and bid on it in the last seconds
