Hi guys, help please

Hi guys,

As you can most likely tell i am new to this forum

I am 16 years old and live in scotland and my hobbies are gaming and sports. The games i play are lotr bfme2, CSS, and football manager all on PC(i dnt play consoles at all anymore)Ive been gaming for over 2 years now so since i was 14 or something i think. I am currently at college doing a sports performance course and eventually hoping to become a football coach

Now i signed up for this forum because i was wandering if you guys could help me.......

I'm currently on the look for a laptop(price range anywhere up to 800)that would allow me to play my games counterstrike source, lord of the rings battle for middle earth 2 and football manager. I was wandering if you could sort of push me in the direction of a laptop brand or else tell me the least specs i would need to run these three games.(i dnt know that much about pc's/laptops as u may have guessed so far)

Thanks a lot for reading and a special thanks to people that help

Welcome to the forums.

I ain't really a laptop expert but its worth taking a look at the xps range from dell.

Hi chap and welcome to the forums.
For that sort of money you could pick yourself up a Dell XPS M1530 and still have some change to buy some decent games (I'm only kidding). They come with 8600M GT graphics, so will play everything you listed there easily. The M1530 with the 8600 can be picked up from them direct from about 600 RRP inc. VAT, but your best bet with Dell is to either call them up and haggle over the price a bit, look in the dell outlet (http://www.dell.co.uk/outlet), or keep an eye out for voucher codes. I'd be surprised if you couldn't pick one up for around 500.
Hope this helps

Only other advice is do not buy anything made by Acer, despite how cheaply priced it may be!
