I have a great desktop but I need the space as the wife keeps pointing out. I know laptops cant compete past a point but I really need to make the switch. £1500_£1700 to spend but is the gtx 880m the gpu to go for? and the mobile cpu's confuse me. any advice would be great. Thanks

You might want to check out this company http://www.mysn.co.uk/

 

Got myself a customized XMG 502, works like a charm. With that amount of money, you might even get a stronger one.

The 880M is probably the most powerful GPU you can get.

 

XMG is probably the best idea, you can even get a laptop with 2x880M from them.

I'd honestly invest a bit of that money into space saving ideas and stick with the desk top. I set quite a lot on a gaming laptop but you still need a table to play games properly. Honestly, find some space and save your money.
