The money you will spend on a decent gaming laptop would be enough to build a desktop 2 times more powerful.

You can't upgrade most laptops, so in a year or two, that laptop will be a slow brick.

That's just my opinion though. If you really want a laptop, I'm sure someone will help you.

This. You could build a micro atx that weights about as much as a laptop that is more powerful and has more upgradeability for the future and still save money.

There really is no such thing as a gaming laptop, it is only a marketing gimmick that will leave your wallet empty.

First, you mean "suggestions".

Second, we can post a specific laptop from a non-UK store, and all you have to do is find the same model in a UK store.


Is that so hard?

Not going to happen, even the one gaming laptop that was worth it (Gateway-P Series) couldn't max them out because it would overheat so much and it weighed 9 pounds with tons of air flow.

I know how you feel you want the "all in one" but it's never going to happen, at least in the foreseeable future. Build a decent desktop, buy a decent laptop and be happy
