I'm thinking about picking up a laptop around Easter time so I have access to a PC when I'm away from my desktop in my uni house, I was hoping to get some suggestions on decent laptops to look at for around a £350 budget.

I'd ideally like >4GB of Ram and at least 500gb HDD, and if possible a dedicated GPU for some basic gaming (nothing too recent, think Civ 5, 2010/11 sort of age games or older) with no need for high performance, just to give me something to fill the time. I also need to do basic word processing, internet browsing etc, all the usual stuff. I'm pretty indifferent about the OS, I like Windows 7 but I can get used to 8.

I found this Acer Aspire V3-571G-6622 online and it looks like it could fit the bill ideally, but I haven't been able to to find anywhere that sells them, so I'm trying to get some alternate options to look at in advance, and give me a chance to plan out my options.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: Asked to give options for where to buy - I'm in the UK so anywhere based here or in the EU is ideal, I actually got my desktop from Germany for very little shipping cost, so thats definitely an option.

That's honestly the best you can find for the 350 quids; you can also possibly buy an older Lenovo Ideapad y510p.
