Gaming Laptop for £800

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
A friend is looking for a laptop for under £800 that will play most modern games at relatively good settings. (Mainly CoD2 and others).

It's a difficult challenge I know, but there has to be something somewhere, so I just wondered if anybody knows of any.

Can't be a desktop, as it must be taken to work all over the place. Portability is a must.

I posted in the intel section because I know that these new mobile chips ar pretty good, but I'm open to any suggestion.

Even if it means buying the graphics card seperatly, I'll do whatever. Although I don't think many laptops support that sort of upgrade.

What more to say?
