    Not new. Even if you go used or refurbished, the performance is going to be poor since only obsolete "gaming" laptops will be sold at that price. You might as well just buy a brand new budget notebook with an AMD APU. Anything with a discrete GPU is going to be no less than $600 USD (just under approx. £400). Look for something with the AMD quad core A8-6410 APU. While its GPU only has 128 shaders and is based on an older architecture, it will still give you about the same performance as a current gen Intel HD 4000/4400 integrated GPU for much less money. Laptops with this APU can be had for around £200 or under $300 USD. Intel laptops with the HD 4400 are usually around $500 USD.

    Something like this Toshiba (from newegg USA) should be well under your budget: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834216977&utm_medium=Email&utm_source=IGNEFL091015&nm_mc=AFC-C8JUNCTION&cm_mmc=AFC-C8JUNCTION-_-EMC-091015-Latest-_-AllLaptopsNotebooks-_-34216977-S3A3A&PID=2138476&SID=dl-1815988&AID=10440897
