Gaming laptop with dedicated graphics chip, quad-core CPU available from £320

You’d be hard pressed to find a brand new laptop with a dedicated, capable graphics processor for less than £350. Yet Dabs has managed to do just that with the Acer Aspire 5560G, which combines an AMD A6-3420M quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz with an AMD Radeon HD 7670M GPU with 1GB of RAM.

The processor can overclock up to 2.4GHz, comes with 4MB L2 cache and has a TDP of 35W, while the GPU should, in theory, be able to combine with the onboard graphic subsystem in the processor, the Radeon HD 6520G (which has 320 shader units and runs at 400MHz), in Crossfire mode.

The rest of the feature list includes 4GB of RAM, a 500GB hard disk drive, a 15.6in LCD screen with a 1,366 x 768 resolution, an HDMI port, an HD ready webcam, a DVD writer, a separate numeric keypad, Wi-Fi, three USB ports (one of which is USB 3.0), a card reader, up to four hours battery life (thanks to a six-cell 4400mAh battery), a GbE port and Windows 7 Home premium OS.
