New laptop around £750?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Right, I'll probably have around £750 to buy a laptop for university. It will be the only PC I will be able to use, This means it needs to be fairly decent for gaming.

I play CS:S mainly, hard drive space doesnt matter as I have an external 250Gb I will be taking. A DVD-RW drive would be preferable but not necessary.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

It doesn't need to be top of the range gaming just good enough to play CS:S at decent res.
