Hi can anyone please recommend me a decent mid range gaming Laptop, the games that I will mainly play on it are Diablo 3 - Reaper of Souls and Football Manager 2014. I would also like to do some video editing but that will only be very light usage for that.

Budget : £800
Screen size : 13" - 14 "
Battery Life : the longer the better but not critical (minimum more than 3 hours)
games to play on laptop : Diablo 3 - Reaper of Souls and Football Manager if possible on medium but will accept low settings
other tasks: some video editing
Hard Capacity : minimum 250Gb ideally SSD
Optical Drive : Not required
Country : I am based in the UK
This will not be a desktop replacement.

I was tempted with the ASUS ZENBOOK UX32VD but wanted a laptop with the new haswell chip. If there is a similar laptop with that look / style but with the specs above that would be great.

If I have missed anything out please let me know, thanks for all the help :)

If you are willing to get it off of ebay, this is an extreamly good laptop for the price and size. In the United States it is sold on amazon, newegg, and the lenovo website but I couldn't find it anywhere for the UK.

Again, it would be able to max out diablo 3 and its well under your budget

Are you airing on the side of more portability than perfomance? It is difficult to find a 13" with a dedicated graphics card, let along a decent one. If you get a haswell chip the iGPU isnt terrible but it isnt fantastic either

thanks but ideally I would like a 14", 15.6" just not portable enough for me. I can possibly push the budget up to £900 if that will give me more choices but the cheaper the better thanks

go to pcspecialist.co.uk - look up either the optimus 13 or the skyfire 14 - ideally the skyfire 14 - its a 14" with a gtx 850M which can do what you want it to do, the optimus is a 13.3" but more powerful - though you don't really need it. But you can get all your trimmings there for under budget - good processor, light, can easily do gaming.

You'll find it very difficult - not only do you have to pay the product price - in a detrimental conversion in currency, you'll have to pay an extra 20% VAT / import duties and the actual shipping cost as well. It would be better off getting the optimus 13 at Pcspecialist - it's just a better laptop spec wise.
