laptop help

I got Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth for my 18th bday but sadly my computer is very old and can't keep the game running well so Im looking into laptops. Will Empire At War run well on those laptops??

Which one is best out of these ones?

I wouldnt get either, especially anything from PC world. Graphics card - 'intergrated' - pah!

Really, you should look around the web. Try www.scan.co.uk they are supposed to be extremely good. People I work with use them.

I had a kickass Toshiba Satellite Pro until quite recently...

Basically, nothing good will come from those entry level laptops youve linked to. If you want a laptop that will handle gaming you need one with a 128 or 256 grafix card. Nvidia and ATI both ship mobile cards of these sizes, but they are damn expensive.

Plus, they guzzle so much power that you cant really use them on the go.

My advice to you - learnt from experience :
*If you really need a laptop for school/work, those entry level ones are fine
*If you want to game, stick to a damn desktop - they are
-Upgradable
-CHEAPER
-easier to fix and maintain and find parts for

I had my laptop on a business lease with extended warranty - if I didnt have that I probably wouldve had to have shelled out up to $3000(almost as much as it is worth) to have gotten the CPU and drive and fan replaced...

Dont bother - seriously
