Laptop recommendations

  bmachy 11:03 08 Sep 08

Hi all,

I'm looking to get a new laptop for University in a few weeks. My course requires lots of Computing (computer course) so the monitor needs to be quite big. Plus I intend to do some casual gaming on it aswell so it needs to have a decent graphics card. I'm looking to spend up to £1,200.

I had a look at the HP HDX Dragon already but I'm still wondering if I can get a better machine. Also the laptop can be huge, as I have a netbook already (currently being repaired :( ), which I intend to use when in lectures and stuff.

Any advice is welcome.

P.s. Don't recommend a desktop because I have no room for it.

Just bought one of these click here for my younger daughter who also starts University in a couple of weeks. If you can cope with the abominable Vista, it's a good bit of kit.

Having personalised it to my preferred spec it cost just short of £1k including an all-in-one printer.

I taken a look at the Dell machines but the specs ain't what I'm looking for (even when upgraded). Also Dell don't take solo which is annoying.

Cheers for the advice though.

Going for HP Pavilion DV7. There specs are good plus, I think having a 20 inch HDX Dragon was being a bit silly.
