University and Good Gaming Laptop

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone,

So, Christmas is coming up and each day brings more excitement biggrin.gif

Something of which I have been thinking about since the I started University a few months back was a Laptop.
Now, I have looked around for Laptops and there is really only one I have found that will cater to all of me needs which is:

Asus n55 - http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/asus-n55sf-s2276v-15-6-laptop-11428458-pdt.html

I am sure that this laptop will handle all of my needs(Shown Below) and more ^^. I just want to ask if there is another Laptop(s) that anyone can recommend me that beats this one in Price v Performance?

I am also not bothered on the weight of the Laptop Tbh, I usually carry alot around with me so it wouldn't particularly bother me wink.gif

Note:
There are two Manufacturers that I will not buy from: Acer and Sony(Vaio) as I have had a bad experience with both, Thanks. smile.gif.

Needs of Laptop:

1) Programming/Coding - Java, Python, C++ etc.
2) Website Development Php, MysQl, Server Hosting.
3) Image Design Programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator.
4) Game Maker Programs such as: Game Maker, Scratch, Unreal Development Kit etc.
5) Run Games such as Fallout3/NV, Forsaken World, COD4, Oblivion/Skyrim - Even at Low - Medium I am happy just as long as there is smooth gameplay (:
