Hello all. I am looking to replace my old laptop which I have had for over 9 years and I am looking for an mid gaming laptop. My budget is around £500-600, It must have an Ethernet port and a headphone jack.

 

Thank you!

Ok thanks - well for older games, pretty much any new £500-£600 laptop is going to run them fine, so it would come down to the laptop display capability. Any preference on screen size, or game refresh rate? The 120Hz+ screens will eat into the budget a fair bit, vs a standard 60Hz one, but if you only want smooth 60FPS rather than super fast response, then it opens more options.

60Hhz will be fine.

Yes, forgot to mention, it needs to have a good battery.

Nothing under £600. Currys has a similar spec to the one I posted before, but AMD Ryzen. Claims "up to 7hrs". https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/gaming/pc-gaming/gaming-laptops/acer-nitro-5-15-6-gaming-laptop-amd-ryzen-5-gtx-1650-256-gb-ssd-10205931-pdt.html

 

Actually, the Intel model wins as it has the OS SSD and a second 1TB HDD.
