    They seem to do decent bits of kit in different sizes and options, I'll be getting a 13.3" laptop from them soon enough myself.
    On the custom built side of things, Chillblast - The UK's most awarded Custom PC builder - Cheap PCs - Gaming PCs - Workstations are certainly worth checking out. I got my PC from these guys a little while back. Great machine, good price and the service was pretty good to boot.

This would be a great option, about half of his budget, and its beefy enough to run almost all modern games on high settings and get 30-40fps.
    What a rip off at that price the 740m is mediocre at best, my friend bought one a while back now with a 740m and it struggles to play Rust anything over Simple Graphics, at 1440x900!

    It's so nice... but I no longer have enough time to get a coffee before it boots.
    The 860m is ok-ish but for a few more quid I'd go with a 870m, if you're co-worker is on a budget then maybe go for the older 765m or 770m which don't differ much in performance but can be a lot cheaper.

    I'd recommend an Alienware as they are the one gaming laptop that is practical it can be upgraded along with the GPU (Only Alienware 17 to 18) just like you would a desktop PC and with 3 hard drive bays etc.... it all makes sense for the money, but rule number 1, never buy from Alienware direct sometimes it can take a month for the flaming thing to be delivered and they are much more expensive than buying from a re-seller. Something like this will be good and it's so worth the extra few hundred!

    Spoke to him the other day and he took the plunge and got a Alienware machine from the dell outlet store. Told him to bring it in when he gets it. Thanks guys.
