Hello everyone, just wondering if people have any recomendations for a laptop? I have £200-£300 to spend (the lower the better being a student) It's for mainly Uni so office and internet. However i would like it to be able to run Football Manager easily and preferably other games aswell. (don't play regually but would be nice none the less!). Also i already have Windows 7 so would be buying it without an operating system. I would just crack on... but due to gaming side of things and me having no knowledge of laptops and graphics cards... i thought i'd get some help!

Cheers, James.

For £200-£300 ($307-$460 USD), you are not going to get much of a laptop. (And it would be a long, l-o-n-g way from 'perfect').

You can pick up a new Netbook (Atom CPU and no CD/DVD) in the lower end of that price range. The higher end would get you into a Celeron or Sempron machine (with a CD/DVD). None of these would be able to play any serious games.

For the money, the Asus G73JH is good.
