Macbook Pro if it's not for heavy gaming.

With the upgrades for the i7 4710MQ processor, 8GB RAM, GTX 870M graphics card, and either 1TB HDD or 500GB hybrid drive, £998 total. Best I can find currently.Last edited by Gofre; 18-07-2014 at 01:25.

Go for an MSI Laptop as they tend to get things right and have good bang for the buck. For your price bracket I'd recommend something from the GE series as they have an amazing price to performance ratio. All of their laptops now have Steelseries keyboards which are really comfortable and are fully programmable and are backlit with any colour you can imagine. Personally I own a MSI GS60 laptop which can be found for about £1150 and packs serious punch whilst being in an ultrabook form factor (basically thin and light). http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-GS60-2PC...words=msi+gs60
For intensive 3D gaming I would recommend going with nothing less than an nVidia GeForce 860M Graphics Card. If you are just playing light games such as Football Manager or indie games than integrated graphics should handle it fine.
MSI has many families of their laptops which I shall list below.
GE60 & GE70 - 15.6" and 17" variants of gaming laptops usually equipped with an Intel Core i7-4700MQ processor and nVidia GeForce 860M 2 GB GDDR5 Graphics. Price range: £890 - £1200 depending on sku.
GX60 & GX70 - 15.6" and 17" variants of entry level gaming laptops equipped with an AMD A10-5750M processor and AMD R9 M290X 2 GB GDDR5 Graphics. Price range: £800 - £1100
GS60 & GS70 - Thin and light laptops with an SSD and HDD with an Intel Core i7-4700HQ processor and nVidia GeForce 860M 2 GB GDDR5 Graphics or nVidia GeForce 870M 3 GB GDDR5 Graphics which costs more. Price range: £1150+
GT60 & GT70 - Most powerful in the range varying from Intel Core i7-4700MQ processor and nVidia GeForce 870M 3 GB GDDR5 Graphics to Intel Core i7-4900MQ processor and nVidia GeForce 880M 3 GB GDDR5 Graphics. All have SSDs and HDDs. Price range: £1200+
