I'm looking into getting a small laptop for when I go away on a 6 week training course. I won't be taking my desk top with me, but I will want to watch DVD's and play some games.
Can anyone suggest a good, small not to heavy machine that will be able to play somthing like NWN 2?
Oh and won't cost the earth either!! :D I live in the UK.

Such a machine does not exist, sorry.

Check out Dell's XPS. It ain't cheap, but no laptop that can play NWN 2 is going to be cheap.

Is dell the best place then?

All these seem to cost an awful lot!!
What about something like this?

Under graphics it's got "ATI Radeon Xpress 1100" listed, I'm not sure what that means.
If I can't get one to run NWN2 would this one run Tomb Raider Legends?
System Requirements:
Microsoft Windows 2000, XP
Pentium 3 1.0Ghz or Athlon XP Equivalent
100% DirectX 9.0c -compatible 64MB 3D Accelerated Card with TnL (GeForce 3Ti / Radeon 9 series)
Microsoft Windows 2000/XP compatible sound card (100% DirectX 9.0c -compatible)
Quad-speed (4x) DVD-ROM drive
9.9GB free disk space
100% Windows 2000/XP compatible mouse and keyboard.

If so I could take the home computer with me.

Laptops are always expensive. Unless you actually need a laptop, its always better to go with a desktop.

I used the Alienware website and built a good machine for 1,900 quid.

That ebuyer notebook you linked doesn't have a capable graphics card for NWN, I don't think (not 100% on that though).
