What is your maximum budget?


What country are you in?


What will be the uses of this laptop?

Mainly Uni work, moderate gaming - nothing too heavy, but enough to require a dedicated GPU.

Do you have brand loyalty or care which brands we select for you?

Not particularly; so long as it's got decent reviews, i'm good.

What screen size do you require?

Less than 15" if possible.

What screen resolution do you require?

I don't mind about res as much so i'm flexible

Are you looking to buy NEW or would refurbished/recertified/used be okay?


How long should the battery last? (Under optimal conditions, no movies/games/heavy internet)

At least 3 hours?

What games would you like to play with your laptop? And on what settings?

Bioshock, BF3, League, Metro, L4D2, you get the idea..

What operating system do you need? (if any)

Win. 7 or 8.

Is there a certain style of laptop you want? (aluminum, black, gaming, etc.)

Aluminium build would be nice but not a necessity. A big put off for me would be any gimmicky lights / vinyl graphics. I would prefer a clean, sleek look. I would prefer a relatively slim build ( obviously not ultrabook slim as i'm asking for a dedicated gpu aswell; however, a bulky laptop just doesn't do it for me. Example: I was looking at the CX61 from MSI; however, it was just too big and thick.

How much hard drive space do you need?


Do you need any special hardware? (blue ray, webcam, specialty ports, etc.)

Not particularly.

Is there anything else we need to know?

Thanks? smile.gif
