Hi, I'm looking for a laptop for my brother that he can take over seas on a working holiday and just to have for home use as well, he would like it to handle games on low settings and be able to watch moves smoothly. I'm in Australia so I will be buying from a Australian suppler.

I don't know a lot about laptops so I'm after suggestions for one which meets his needs.

I was looking at this one, what do you think?

Thanks for any help :blink:

My budget for the new computer is:
800- 1200 Australian.

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)?
Web browsing, light gaming and watching moves.

What software do you intend on using on the computer?
Msn, web browsing and light gaming.

Do you play games? If so, what type of games?
fps and strategy .

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it?
Only 1 or 2 programs at a time.

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?

Hi bourkie, I would also look at this supplier http://msy.com.au/ I buy a fair bit off them. The only problem I can see is gaming so make sure you get the specs you want. The Asus is a good lappy but all of those in that price range will be low end gaming.
