Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Folks,

    Being a computer mong, having looked at countless websites, and not wanting to fall prey to slippery PC World salespeople, I come to the folks of Arrse for advice.

    Basically, I'm looking for a laptop, up to £500 for general use, including games ( possibly online ), and dongle thingy internet use.

    Where the hell do I start?!?
  2. Dell "factory clearance" webpage? The PCs on there seem to be about 20% more spec for the money than normal retail, and they come with full warranty, etc. (Dell outlet UK)
  3. what type of games is the question ?

    High intensity graphic's ?
  4. Onr of those expensive Alienware jobs.
  5. I would recommend DELL, price/spec wise, make sure the GFX are either nvidea or Radeon, get the model number then confirm the GFX ability by looking here :wink:
  6. If you are serving Hp do service discount up to 25%.

    Check out the discount page on ArmyNet.
  7. Try Morgan Computers HERE
    Or have a look at Novatech HERE
    But for £500 your budget is low if you want a good gaming laptop!
  8. Got a 3 dongle with a high spec laptop thrown in for £40 a month. Chose one with 3G memory & high end graphics card. Plays COD MW2 without a problem.

    That'd be my suggestion.

  9. Thanks folks, plenty useful info here to work on!

    has it got to be a laptop? you'll be lucky to find something that will give you a decent gaming experience under the sub-£500 mark. if you go the desktop route you'll a. get more for your money and b. far easier to upgrade if you want to.
