Hi i'm just going to make this short, sweet and simple.

I'm looking for a laptop that can play minecraft at around 100fps, stream Netflix, download movies, play movies and obviously has a hdmi or mini hdmi or any sort of port that i can connect it up to my tv.

My budget is £400 max. Please look on mostly UK sites since i don't want import tax etc.

Here's a few i've found are they any good?

I don't know what distance you sit at but 27 is definitely bigger than 24 inches so you would definitely notice the difference. 1080 isn't worse per say, it's just the pixels are larger so if you sit too close they may be noticeable.

You pretty much have to get a 1080p monitor if you are getting 144 Hz unless you really want to spend allot of money. In addition you are going to sacrifice image quality and viewing angles unless, once again, you spend allot of money. I'd no recommend a 144 Hz monitor unless you are willing to spend allot to get an IPS one. Otherwise the off viewing angles of TN is going to make it look horrid.

This laptop need a GPU if he want to play CS:GO. the problem is, all laptops with GPU cost a lot more, then you need to find an option to get a better laptop with a dedicate GPU.

CSGO doesn't not require much power at all. The GPU integrated into that Intel i5 is more than enough to run an esport game like CSGO.

The HD 4400 can get 90 FPS on low and 56 on medium. Very excellent.

Yeah but if you see the resolution on any benchmark. 1300x768 even less than a HD. It's really low resolution. I think he need to search for 900p to 1080p laptop.

he needs an i5, ssd and like a gt 740 or some low end card or just integrated, These games are not crazily intensive
I have a 900p monitor and it looks great i think a 900p labtop would be good for a game like csgo and minecraft, Unless he wants to use SEUS shaders with 128x texture packs and have parallax textures on minecraft lol then he should be good with integrated graphics or a low end card

im agree with you, a low end Mobile card can give you all he want, even a NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M or more can give him the 900p 60 fps.

Nope, you said in your first post, the laptop cpu graphics (integrated graphics) can run the game well, and i told you, he need a Dedicated graphic card like GT to play on 900p or more. if im wrong sorry.

That maybe what you thought but your first post just says

"This laptop need a GPU if he want to play CS:GO. the problem is, all laptops with GPU cost a lot more, then you need to find an option to get a better laptop with a dedicate GPU. "

no mention of any resolution.

Yeh he is right and i only need i5 maybe ssd and integrated graphics around 5500, 5000 series will be good enough for the both. 8gb ram maybe?

Ah, looks like the laptop I linked has sold. You seem to know what you need so I'd recommend you look around ebay for some refurbished laptops. I've found that many times refurbished are just as good or better than a new laptop because you know they work. As you can see the really good deals don't last very long so it's pretty pointless to post them here.

Ah ok could you just link me a few refurbished laptops or just there names I know where to look and how to find it I'm just having difficulty picking between laptops for the same cpu for example and which one is best for the price you pay and the features they have.
