Looking for a budget gaming laptop

  dhall 18:22 11 Mar 2015

My 7 year old dinosaur of an acer is gradually dying and I'm looking for a replacement. I'd like something portable, but future proof, with good performance for web browsing, streaming and playing games such as Cities: Skylines on medium graphics settings. I've spent hours trawling through reviews, but none stand out to me... help? My budget is £550 max, but ideally I'd like to go lower if possible (I'm thinking maybe around £450?). I'm not bothered by gimmicks like touch screens etc, so the key features are processing power, graphics and a degree of portability (though that's not at all vital, just preferable)

I'm not going to be very useful here.

Your budget is very low for a Gaming Laptop. If you're not to be disappointed I would suggest that another £300 would help.

I'm not really looking for a proper gaming laptop, just one I can play games on at more than my current 5fps... Any opinions on the Lenovo Z50-70?

I'd rather recommend a LENOVO Z50-75, would be great considering your current requirements - Specs/Prices can be seen here at click here
