I am looking for a multimedia laptop for the budget of £500
I will use the laptop to play minecraft , record minecraft and also edit my videos on sony vegas 12
it has to be able to carry around easily and not very heavy. i want it to have a dedicated GPU so if i wanted to play other games it will not lag
honestly £500 isn't going to buy you much in this sort of thing which is a shame
you won't be able to get anything powerful enough to do what you want to do well.
If I were you I'd wait and save up another £100-150 - you'll be able to get this: http/www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/cosmosII/
and be able to spruce it up with a lot of parts that you seriously need - if you save up the specs are the equivalent of a £750+ laptop that would be sold anywhere else, trust me the wait is well worth it
if you do elect to wait and save up, come back to the forums / PM me and I will help you with the best config for your price ^_^
