Thanks for the reply yup it includes VAT :) Will have a look at your links.

So if I can find a laptop with the A8-5550m and Amd Radeon 8550g Graphics card I should be sort of okay WvW doesn't interest me on a laptop but world bosses does, I don't mind lowering all graphics to low to be able to handle bosses.

That Lenovo is an older model overall. The graphics performance of the 720m is significantly lower than the 840m. While the earlier system only had a dual-core i5, it was significantly faster (2.6 vs 2.2), a newer design, and has hyperthreading. The best bet would be if you could find a model of the first machine with the next step up in CPU.
I wouldn't want to pick one of those over the other without actually trying them with GW2 first. ^_^

Speaking of Lenovo, this would be much better (but I don't know what your budget is)

Cheers again Quaker, my budget is around £700-£800, the one you linked looks bad-ass! For me laptops are another beast as I'm used to my desktops :)

The GT-840m graphics should handle GW2 with no trouble - at least medium. You didn't say what the screen rez is, but the GT-840m should be good up to 1920x1080. I can't say what the exact graphics settings could be, and it may depend a bit upon how much the CPU sucks.

Which is the problem - a dual-core mobile CPU (with single channel RAM, to make things worse) is apt to choke whenever there's a lot going on, such as in crowded towns (LA), events and WvW.

The speed of the hard drive only affects load times, not the fps of the game.
Thanks for that Quaker I think I'll go higher on specs as I tend to do a lot of world bosses. I know the Graphics card is different then the other one I posted but t has a better Processor according to Lenovo
