gaming laptop wanted £1000~ HELP! needed asap!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
ok, so ive set myself a budget of 1000pounds UK.

wants: quad core intel i7,(or a quad core with HT, not AMD)
Geforce GPU
SSD(any size but would prefer samsung/intel)+1TB storage(wd/seagate SSHD)
1080p prefer matte screen, IPS ideally.
SFF as small as possible, as light as possible, up to 15" no bigger.
8gb ram minimum (i mean isnt that normal nowadays?)
backlit keyboard would be nice but not essential.
os is not important, ill just be sticking 7 on it.

im toying with the idea of a custom laptop, but i feel they are bulkier and heavier then they need to be. i really like the look of the MSI laptops and the gigabyte auros?

anyway, im completely lost when it comes to laptops.

cheers in advance for the help biggrin.gif

I just bought a Lenovo Y510P with dual 755s for ~1000USD. Im not sure how much it would go for in pounds but I have no complaints with it. Kinda in love with it lol. Good luck.

The W230SS should be coming out soon, my distributor in Germany is receiving it next week so give it another week for it to come out.
You can get one for 1000 pounds, 13.3" 1080p IPS panel but has an option for a better panel, quad core i7 + GTX860M.
I have the W230ST and its light, battery is decent + Prema mod changes the performance completely. I bought the version with the i7 4700MQ it comes clocked at stock 2.4 Ghz and turbo up to 3.4Ghz, with Prema mod it enables undervolting and overclocking via Intel XTU, my cpu is pegged almost all the time at 3.4Ghz.
It benchmarks as fast or faster when compared to my Phenom(which isnt really surprising).
The W230SS should come with the Haswell refresh also btw.

A distributor in the UK is PCspecialist.co.uk, have a look arround for their custom laptops. And btw check videos on youtube. They aren't really that bulky.

Dont get the one with the 765m. Thats basically a rebrand of the Clevo W230s from last year. The new Clevo W230ss is packing a 860m GPU which is faster. See?

THIS is the one you want. But im not sure if its available yet in the land where color is spelled with a U. tongue.gif

Thats the 13.3 inch W230ST. The laptop I own and its not as thin as normal laptops but normal laptops dont have an i7 and a GTX765M either.
30 (W) x 227 (D) x 31.9 (H) mm
2.1kg, including 62.16WH battery

I consider it a light and very portable laptop.
