hhmmm acer.

ok is that good or bad?

Acer = shoddy. Only buy if you get at half price and don't expect to last more than 2-3 years. ASUS and Toshiba are the most reliable laptops (on average).

Ok thanks.So what sort of thing should I look for?As in memory etc

r.g.nixon, Nov 11, 9:53am
Depends. What sort of games? Laptops are not ideal for any of the latest "install from CD" games... but OK for web-based games.

Just web based games.

Any Toshiba or Asus with at least 256mb of dedicated graphics and minimum of 4gig of ram , 320 gig hard-drive and preferable a I3/5 etc CPU and wireless N if possible .
