I have been weighing my options on which laptop I want to buy to take with me to university;
I am after something that is preferably not over £800, has a Full HD display preferably and can run some of the less intensive games relatively easily; I do have a gaming PC which handles all my high intensive gaming, so the focus of this laptop should not be all about the gaming, at most it will have 5 games on it at once probably and they will usually be for when I am travelling home for the weekend or anywhere else.

The type of games I would probably end up playing would be along the lines of Hearthstone, Garry's Mod, Tropico, The Sims, Football Manager, and maybe at a push, Skyrim, DayZ or stuff like Guild Wars 2.

Now I have found a brand of laptop I love, and with my basic knowledge of computers I can see that they might be good enough for what I need and so I have three models of the brand at different prices for you guys to consider also, because this is the part Im struggling with; do I go with the most expensive of my choices to be on the safe side in terms of performance, or do my needs mean i'd be paying more than I need to and could get the cheapest model.

Even though I really like this brand as well I am open to other suggestions if there is something out there that is better and cheaper, preferably I would like it to be relatively thin.

Thank you for all the help!

Since the ASUS and the HP Envy are the same price (the one with the better GPU anyway) which would you say comes out on top? From a first glance they both have the same processor and gpu and are both £799
