Looking for suggestions on low-range gaming laptop

Hi everybody

I purchased a Samsung 355V5C laptop a few months ago and have been very pleased with it's gaming performance. I purchased it for about £560 ($879, 659 EUR). The specifications of the laptop I brought at that time can be found here:-

The laptop uses crossfire to merge the integrated AMD 7660G graphics adapter with the dedicated AMD 7670M for increased graphics performance. I've been looking around to buy a similiarly capable laptop at a similiar price, but I'm having trouble finding one at this performance level for the same price. The laptop would be used for general use with some gaming on things like Skyrim, World of Warcraft etc. The current laptop I have runs Skyrim at medium detail quite comfortably and can stretch to high if needed although I prefer the smoother frame rate on medium.

My budget is about £600 ($941, 800 EUR). I could stretch another £100 but I'd like to keep it as low as possible. I was wondering if anybody here had any suggestions on what laptop might be a good buy at this kind of budget?

Thanks
