Not sure what monetary system that is nor what it would convert to in USD, but AMD's A10 (with a separate GPU if possible, but even by itself) is a pretty nice minimum and can be had for under $600 in the U.S.

Chances are you won't find a great gaming laptop for really cheap unless you stick with an AMD APU. Otherwise the starting price will probably be around $800 or so.

Are you willing to buy used? I assume so since you mention XP and windows 7. Windows 8.1 good for gaming. Needs a few tweaks.

I have a super Dell ultrabook, which works as great as a gaming laptop. i5 core processor, 8 GB RAM, 500 GB Hard Drive, 4 USB 3.0 ports for super fast data transfer speed.

Get your self a Chromebook. Might not look like much, but when you install Linux on it, it becomes gaming central. But, that requires you to put it on developer mode (debug mode). It wipes out all your local data, so I recommend that you do it fresh out of the box.

Chromebooks are super low end and hardly have any storage, both of which would make them horrible for games even if they were running a real OS. Linux isn't great for games generally, although better than it's ever been.

I beg to differ. The Chromebook runs on an Intel Celeron... I mean come on...

Also to you, my good sir, get an SD Card. OR a USB Drive.

Err... I wouldn't want to play Skyrim on a full blow Haswell GPU, much less an underclocked, stripped down celron...
