Default Dx10 Laptop

I'm looking for a new laptop with the following minimum specs:


- 15inch screen
- Intel Core 2 Duo T7xxx series processor
- 2GB RAM
- 8600M GT Graphics card

I need it in the UK and not many manufacturers over here seem to have caught on yet.

Zepto do a nice range and i've found one that meets my needs for £900 ]Here

Rock and Eveham also have 8600M GT notebooks but they are too expensive

I've researched Alienware, Asus, Acer, Toshiba, Sony and HP and my knowledge of manufacturers sort of stops there

Zepto are quite a small company and I stumbled across them by chance when on a notebook forums so I would appreciate any other recommendations.

The hardest part is finding a 8600M GT because they are so new.

You guys know any other laptop manufacturers that deliver to the UK i should check out?

Well, and I cannot believe I am saying this, but you could always get a MacBook Pro and boot windows onto it.

The basic 15" Pro with a 2.2Ghz, 120gig HD, 2 gigs of RAM and the 8600M GT would run around 1000 pounds I think.

The one you originally linked to looks fine to me. I don't know much about UK manufacturers but they seemed pretty good and were definitely affordable.
