    Haha my best friend just got a MacBook for her joint birthday/Christmas present and now she wants me to get one. I don't do joint presents though

    Don't like the Mac OS anyway.

    Does it have to be a laptop? I could link you desktop PC hardware components that would make an amazing gaming PC for under £400 - if you're willing to build it.

    Otherwise, just take a look at some of the laptop deals at http://www.ebuyer.com and if you find one that you like, post the link/specs here.

    I would have a look at DELL or Lenovo. I have a Lenovo SL500 and it is really good (oddly, it is rather better than the SL510, with more memory, HD and everything).

    I just purchased
    Dell inspiron 1764
    core i3
    3Gb 1066Mhz
    320gb 7,200rpm HD
    17.3" display
    for £390

    It was £390 refurbished £450 at Dell UK (including VAT & delivery)...
    would have been better for me to choose a New version as refurbished in for repair (not sure possible) & am yet to find similar priced laptop for these specs...

    anyways thought might serve as benchmark in your search

    Mac's are out for £400, so I would also recommend Lenovo. Lenovo are one of the most reliable brands of laptop.

    The G550 is a good model, but the newer G560 has a Core i3 CPU and is even better - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B003XIJ1AG
