    Gaming laptop advice for co-worker

    So a co-worker came up to me and asked on advice on buying a laptop. I asked what they would use it for and they said Diablo WoW and stuff (Rather have a laptop then a desktop because he can move about away from the mrs if she gets annoyed with him gaming lol). Its been a while since I picked up something for personal use laptop wise so thought i would post on here for advice and point him in the right direction. He said up to a £1000 (that might be pushing it).

    Thanks in advance.

    Better off buying a PC. He has the choice...sacrifice FPS and gameplay smoothness for mobility, or have the ability to upgrade and have the best his money can buy.

    As much as I agree with you on that from speaking to him it's pretty much a laptop option.

    That's pretty much what I advised him in the mean time before posting this thread.

    Hey guys just resurrecting an old thread, he was not able to get anything back then but is now. He wants to spend up to £1600 give or take on a gaming laptop any suggestions/recommendations?

    MSI GP60 2OD-448XU 15.6 Inch Laptop - Laptops and Tablets - Best Laptop Deals, Ultrabook and Cheap Tablet PCs < I use arbico a lot for my customers, and they've never let me down, and they have fantastic service. 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.

    +1 "Dominator"

    I think I have the one up from that with a GTX860m. [GTX870m?]


    It's so nice... but I no longer have enough time to get a coffee before it boots.

    Get him to take a look at some of the custom built laptops at pcspecialist (PCSPECIALIST - Custom PCs, Custom Computers, Custom PC, Desktop PC, Custom Built Computers, Gaming PC)

    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.
