I am about to buy a Dell Laptop, and have settled for the XPS 15.
My main use is for watching TV shows (350mb Avi files) and some HD videos, internet browsing and gaming.
Im sure it'll be fine for the videos and internet as my 5 year old HP can handle this, its just i now want to use iit for games too.
The spec in the "ships fast" deal at the moment is as follows, and my quesston is, could i play popular games such as call of duty black ops, and other graphically demanding shooters smoothly without having to knock the graphics down? Dont really want to spend much more than £600 so this laptop is definitely the best buy for the money. Its an extra £130 for the I5 processor and i can increase the ram to 4gb for £40. Any advice appreciated as the offer expires today!!!
