This forum is for all things computer related. Technical questions about hardware, software, upgrades, building your own PC, etc... But as always, no warez. Be sure you read the pinned pre-post topic labled "READ BEFORE YOU POST A QUESTION" before you create a new thread.

This topic also explains some of the info you (and those replying) will need to know in order to get a helpful and speedier reply.
I need a hand here, before anyone says that laptops are on the lower end for PC games, and I should build a desktop if I want decent results - I know. But I'm not really in the position to have a desktop PC right now, and it would be a lot more practical to have a laptop that I can take with me to college as I do a lot of graphics work.
Now, I don't really want to spend a tonne so £500 is like my absolute limit - I've seen this laptop right here: http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/samsung-seri...212978-pdt.html It does enough for what I need, but I'd also like to play some games on here. I'm not looking for like Crysis at 60fps on 3 monitors or anything. I'll probably just play stuff like Minecraft, Morrowind, Oblivion and the games that came with the most recent Humble Bundle - I have no worries about those as I can play them on my old laptop just fine and that had integrated graphics and intel celeron LOL.
I also just recently bought Splinter Cell Conviction on PC as I saw it brand new for £3 so I thought why not, despite not having a new PC yet... Will this be able to run it? There are a few other games but let me sum it up
Will it be able to run the following games at a decent level: -Splinter Cell Conviction -Skyrim -Battlefield 3 (I understand this one is pretty unlikely) -The Witcher 2 (I understand this one is pretty unlikely)
This video is on same model as the laptop I'm looking at and it seems to run battlefield 3 fine, I just wanted to confirm before I spend £500.
Out of curiosity though, if anyone can find me a desktop PC for £400-£450 (I'll need to buy a keyboard and mouse and wi-fi thingy and I've got a monitor so I've bumped off £50) that will beat this laptop outright and run those games at a decent rate, then post it also and it might change my mind. Cheers!!
Okay guys nevermind, cracked and bought and Xbox 360 to go with the PS3 that I already have. Figured it's better to get a system that I know can play all the non-PS3 games I want to play (Witcher 2, SC: Conviction, Alan Wake etc) rather than getting a laptop that probably won't play them well and that I know nothing about PC gaming.
I got a cheaper laptop with better specs all round except for the graphics card (uses the standard laptop intel HD graphics) which is more than enough for all my college needs.
