Hello, I have been searching on the web for the past week for a laptop. I will need it to play shogun 2 total war and other games of the series. I have three laptops here but I cannot decide which is better. If anyone has found any other laptops than that will also be usefull. My budget is £600. I live in the Uk so it has to be able to deliver in the uk. Here are the three promised: 1. Toshiba Satellite P850-138 15.6" Specifications: Processor 2nd generation Intel® Core™ i3-2350M Processor Cache memory 3 MB Operating System Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit RAM 8 GB Graphics card NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 630M Screen type TruBrite high brightness LED backlit Screen resolution 1366 x 768 Screen size 15.6" Hard drive 640 GB Optical disk drive DVD SuperMulti Dual layer

Also,please refrain from just saying "get a desktop" I really need a portable gaming system.

I cn only say that John Lewis as a retailer (2 years warranty) and Toshiba as a supplier is a good combination. My local expert repair man says Toshiba and Asus are tops for obtaining spares etc. I am not a gamer so will leave others to comment on that aspect.

You haven't mentioned hard drive speeds, which, if different, could be significant.

Probably the best place for specific info on graphics card capabilities, for particular games, is Tom's Hardware.
