Hi, I'm looking to buy a laptop mainly to play games but also to do the usual stuff like surf the net and watch films. I have left the minimum system requirements for 4 games i most want to be able to play on the laptop with med to high settings without any slowdown. I also don't want a laptop which is going to overheat after a couple of hours. I would be extremely grateful for any suggestions.
