Hey,
Can anyone recommend a laptop for £500 or less.
I'm looking for a cheap laptop to take with me when I travel with work.

I want to use it for some light gaming (RTS, Defense grid, Total War, Diablo, Divine Divinity) and not worried about having to turn down some graphics settings. I won't be using it for any intensive FPS like Far Cry or battlefield games.

I saw this on amazon:
(http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-GP60-2OD-448XUK-15-6-inch-Notebook/dp/B00I0RLQA8/ref=sr_1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1425466015&sr=1-1)

Was wondering if anyone could advise if they think this is a good deal, and whether it will do what I need.

Also ideas for better/cheaper alternatives would be most welcome.

Many Thanks

Rob
