Pity about the GTX 960M rather than a GTX 1060 (Mobile).

I've got a version of this laptop, 2tb, 128SSD, 12ram. They all come with really bad coil whine that's caused by the INTEL CPU, turn that off in device manager and it's quiet. Have a look on the ROG forum for more info. If that's not a problem then the wobbly touchpad might be.

Also it's very hard to customise as the bios is locked down etc so don't think you can sort the coil whine that way.

However I love have the SSD, where all programs are saved. This means the laptop is largely silent. Although I did DL Notebook Fancontrol because ASUS settings meant that the fans would turn on for 10 seconds then off then on etc. You can google that and it's another thing ASUS locked down so you can't change. But it's now fixed with this software. Another things prob worth mentioning is recently the smart gesture centre starting using about 10% CPU which doesn't seem much but it cause it to heat up, set the fans off and run down the battery quickly. A quick google found a regedit solution.

I am at a loss as to why ASUS would have such a poor touchpad and really restrict how much you can tweak the laptop. I like the keyboard lights, they're handy. I don't like how the caps lock lights etc are hard to see, they're on the front edge of the laptop so you have to lean back, it's daft. And the another annoyance is the power cable connector, it's a right angled one so it constantly gets caught and pulls out. I've changed my screen brightness on battery so I can tell when it happens because of course the charging light is hard to see.

I have a similar spec Dell Inspiron with the i7-6700HQ and a GTX960m

Was considerably cheaper than this almost a year ago though (just under 700 quid). Granted it didn't have the 256Gb SSD though.

I can raid in World of Warcraft on it at 60fps and play overwatch in medium/high settings at 60fps. So yes, I would class it as a medium range gaming laptop. Remember though that you will not get a high range gaming laptop for less than double this ,money

Almost perfect laptop for the price, sans the backlit keyboard and US keyboard instead of UK. If you're not worried by that then Hot!

Bear in mind those that are saying it should have a GTX 1060m card, that would push the price up by at least £300

Turn off the intel cpu and it becomes quiet... and probably not very good as a computer X)

Sorry couldn't resist :D

You can pick up a GTX 1060 laptop for 20% more. Double the power and VR ready. Buying this is like buying a 720p plasma in 2016.

It's got a MUCH worse processor and a... notably poorer GPU.

Great price for this spec

Is it possible to get a Gtx 1060m laptop for under £1000?

Did anyone had problem ordering from Amazon market place. Same laptop is listed for £547 from other seller. Too good to be true, it's probably not true.

Not this particular one no but I have bought "too good to be true" laptops from Amazon sellers before. All of these orders have been cancelled by the seller soon afterwards with no explanation. After a closer look at the seller they always state to contact them by email before you buy from them. Do not contact them like this, it's very dodgy and I believe they're after your personal information.
It usually is too good to be true unfortunately.

I actually did end up going for this. My only pain about gaming laptops is the size of them. Can you get a laptop with the specs of this but without such thickness? For example without the cv drive... I will probably never used the cv drive so it's just wasted size and weight.

Any links would be great or names of laptops that are thin but good for mid range gaming.

No but GTX 1050 should be, it still is substantially better than current 9xx gfx cards. It's supposed to be announced at CES in January so really I would advice people to hold off buying any expensive laptops.

HP Omen is 0.8mm thinner than this one.
