Yeh, if you actually have no need for a laptop just get a PC. I think overall I got my PC for about £800.
LG L19WT 19" Widescreen Monitor.
Creative I-Trigue 2200 Speakers
Asus P5N-E Motherboard - Capable of Quad Core Proccesor and 8GB RAM for when I want to upgrade.
Nvidia GeForce 7600GT *** Graphics Card
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6400 @ 2.13GHz (2 CPUs) --> (Overclocked to 2.56GHz)
586 GB Total HDD Space
Laptops do not suck, laptops are brilliant if your a student who needs to take their laptops all over, and i have PES and FM working top notch on this, that's all i need, this cost me about £400 a year ago, could prob get it for £299 now!.
