Buying new laptop advice

  Dymond 16:05 02 Oct 2013

Hello all,

I've done a bit of searching through the forums but have not come up with anything ive been happy with :)

I'm in the UK, looking for a new laptop in the £400-£550 range which is capabale of running AutoCAD2013 and some other engineering progs as well medium gaming settings.

Ideal specs: 15.6" Screen Recent i5/i7 or A10 Dedicated GPU 1gb+ 6gb+ RAM 500gb+ HDD, ideally 7200rpm DVD drive not essential

Obviously like everyone out there i'd like the best I can buy for the money but have been struggling to determine what that is! I've been looking at the ACER V3 below but its an i3 and the HP Envy M6, can anyone else recommened other/better options?

Thanks in advance, Jon.

Hi when looking to run Autocad find out what the (recommended PC requirements) are, Not The Minimum, and go from there I would think you will have to go well above the £550 mark for your laptop.
