    Hey can you guys suggest laptops for me?
    I want to replace my macbook which is really getting old now

    spec
    13 inch(I really like the screen size)
    i5 or higher processor with 2.0 or higher
    non intel HD graphic card, I am looking at around nvidia 310 capability
    ram doesn't really matter (but would liked 4 gig or more)
    so is HDD

    Mods can move this if this is in the wrong sections
    thanks GBAtemp

    I don't think you will go wrong with a Dell XPS laptop you can pull out 15 inch i7 and nvidia Gt525 for 900$.

    You're looking for something that's not intel integrated, but the GT 310M's not that much above integrated. What's your actual aim concern? If it's battery life in addition to playing a few games you might want to aim for a laptop with switchable graphics.

    If you don't mind a 14" laptop, there's always the HP Envy 14. But I know there are some build quality issues. Its design is very Macbook-esque, and it has up to i7 quad core (I think) and switchable graphics.

    Its 11 inches instead of 13, but you might want to look at the Alienware m11x. For $950 you get

    -i5 @ 1.8ghz (not 2ghz but still plenty fast)
    -4GB Ram
    -250gb HD
    -11 inch screen @ 1366x768
    -Geforce GT335M with 1GB dedicated ram

    Downsides:
    -No cd/dvd drive
    -only 11 inches instead of 13

    It should be noted that this system supports Nvidia Optimus, which means it has an integrated intel GPU that it can use when your not playing games or similar activities to save battery life.

    How the hell it got into 1500 in AUS?

    Does Amazon ship to AUS?, or where else can I find that model?

    anyone know where i can get this stuff in not AUS price ? I don't mind paying shipping
