Anyway I've been looking at Sony Vaios since my brother and friend have got one, and they've had no problems with them and they look like quite good machines, in fact my brother has had a problem with his but it was nothing major just something that sony had put on it which was easily fixed by reinstalling windows 7 clean.
So yeah I've been looking at Sony Vaios on their website and customising them playing about and have come to what I think is a pretty good set up (which means nothing because I know very little about hardware and what not) so would you take a look at comment on what you think?
As for tasks, I want it for gaming and work, but obviously gaming wise it's gonna be somewhat difficult so I'm not all that bothered by what spec the games run at just as long as they run.
Dragon Rising (Yes I realise its not all that good but still)
Far Cry 2
Mass Erect 2
Unfortunately it does have to be a laptop I can't use a desktop what with work and that, but if you've got another laptop that might be better and around that price range then please show

Yeah I had plans for an i7 laptop (it used the actual desktop processor aswell because the people making it couldn't be assed to wait for it to be released) but yeah it costs like £2,000 and the battery life was about an hour
I will keep looking for one with an i7 (got a bit to wait till I can order it) wander if Sony plan to put i5s/i7s in their laptops :3

and holy shit! 'usually ships in 3-4 weeks' that is some bull right there. anywhere in the us i can get a laptop at my front door in just under a week. i think you're getting ripped off man and thats being honest

thanks will check out Toshiba see what they have to offer. Was also looking at Asus laptops but any site I find them on doesn't ship to the UK -_-
I thought that the 3-4week time was because it's a custom laptop but yeah some other sites don't seem to be able to do it quickly :/

The Dell laptop I have now is like 5 years old. An Inspiron 8600. It's pretty whack nowadays and I can tell the processor is getting flogged. However, right now I don't even know what I need a laptop for. I just use the internet mostly. I hardly game on this and when I do they're really old games. The only technical work I do on it is video editing and it sucks for that because it's so slow. For gaming I have my 360 but would still like to have power in a laptop if I wanted to game. Problem is you can't change the video card. The only time my laptop was mobile was for school, but since I have my degree, mobility is a rarity. Woe is me. And Macbooks are way too expensive.
