O.P. Looking to get a laptop/PC for Chirstmas
Im looking to get a good laptop/PC for christmas. I have a budget of around 1000.
The only main specification i want is 4GB RAM and at least a dual core processor. A good graphics card would be good, preferably NVIDIA.
I dont mind either a laptop or a new PC but what would you guys recomend?

UK btw :P

If you don't care if it is a laptop or PC, definitely go with a PC.

Because apparently you don't need to drag is around, which is really the only advantage of a laptop. With a budget like that you should be able to get a very decent PC easily.

Chirstmas budgets these days... max I would get here is maybe a game

Ok i will thanks.

Anyone recomend any good PCs? I was thinking about Alienware but you can get so much more for your money if you buy from somewhere else right?

Since when could you build a laptop?

Either way, I love this laptop, it's performance is insane for gaming.

I was refering to Dazzy's reply to Jimbo saying he may order from Alienware :p You can't "build" a laptop. But you can waste money at Alienware :p

Yeah I know :p, and i dont regret going down the AW route, and you can't waste money on the m15x considering it's still the most powerful 15 inch laptop around - still to this day.

Anyway let's not go off topic:

If you have a tight budget, AW is probs not the right route for you, but building your own, and it's not that hard... seriously.

Get one from a local computer shop (well known computer shop preferably). They are cheap and assemble it themselves if you dont want to risk assembling it :)
You have the intellect comparable to that of a rock. Be proud.
