I'm looking to buy a new laptop for primarily University use but will also use to play games (the odd MMO) and watch videos, my old one is just too slow and unpredictable. Any suggestions? Preferably a laptop that isn't too expensive!

Well I guess around £600 but I could pay more if it's really worth it.

If you wanna actually play games on a laptop, you'll need more than 600 pounds.
Now that the new 10 series from NVidia have come out, they'll be more expensive.

You should get the newdell inspiron 15 (gaming series), it starts at about £800, has an i5 quadcore, 16 gb ram, gtx 1050.

If you wanna spend less, then get a 960m laptop, a bit cheaper (£700) now.

If I were you, I wouldn't game on a laptop as I have a small budget (gaming laptops aren't cheap things), i'd just get an xps, macbook or any random windows laptop which is cheaper.

I'm not really an avid gamer since it's really only one or two steam games I play every now and again, it's primarily for Uni.

Forget the gaming laptop then.
Get any other laptop with decent specs, but without a graphics chip/card, you won't be able to play demanding games at a good frame rate.

I recommend an xps (older ones, new ones are like £1000), macbook, or even a decent AMD laptop, they waaaay cheaper.

Thank you! I'll look into them.

What games exactly? If it's something that's easy to run then a powerful laptop shouldn't be needed.
