    I'm looking to buy a laptop for gaming and work purposes. I do have a desktop for gaming but I'm not a big fan of sitting at a desk anymore, so would rather have something powerful that I can sit on the couch or in bed with and game with maxed out graphics (if possible). I'm also starting a coding/programming course soon as well, so it will double up as the laptop I use for work purposes.

    My budget is around £1100 (may be able to stretch a bit further), can I get some recommendations on what to buy please?

    Thank you.
