Choosing a laptop

  Crisspy 17:14 09 Jun 2005

I want to buy a laptop in the £1000-1500 price range. I will be using it for gaming, dvds, photos, internet and I travel alot so battery life is a consideration too. Can anyone give me some suggestions?

those are things you need to consider

at the high end, Sony models are great

At value for money end: Acer models (Acer is the largest lappy maker and it makes lappy for many many leading brand)

Rock, Eversham make some good models as well

The Acer Ferrari models might suit your needs. Check the battery life is up to your requirments though.
