Hi, i have had a quick search and cant see a post that would totally answer my question so if you have time i wouldn't mind your two pence wuth.

Standard question really, im looking for a new laptop, the desktop I built for before going to uni 6years ago has finally jacked it in.

My main uses are Audio sequencing/editing on Reason 4 and the occasional bit of gaming, COD, strategy games etc. Clearly audio stuff is pretty processor heavy and im intending to use propellorheads new RECORD software which is apparently clever enough to use multicore processors efficiently.

So basically my question is, for roughly the £700 mark am i going to get anything better than a "dell studio 15" with this sort of spec below? Any help much appreciated
