    Wondering if anyone can give me some advice.

    My current laptop is breaking - the plastic was a bit cheap on this model it seems (not the only one to complain), so it's started to crack and break. The fan is also a pain because bits have broken off, and there is a problem with the hinges (again due to the plastic). Rather than repair the laptop because I've had it for over three years, I'm looking to put money towards a new one.

    I'm looking for a laptop that I can play some games on (mostly MMOs, and games like Diablo 3). Also needs to be something I can use for everyday general use (watching videos, Skype, browsing the internet), and preferably Windows.

    Unfortunately I'm on a budget of around £500....can anyone recommend something I can get?
