Tempted but apparently it's one of the worst IPS screens out there.

Duck it, went for it. Can always return it.

You could get this even cheaper by buying mspoints from somewhere like cdkeys and using that to pay for it.

I have the Omen 17 and I think its a stunning screen, but I'm no expert and don't have anything to compare it too. Looks great to me though :)

Seriously? I don't see the option for payment using MSPoints.

Yes, when I get through to payment options I can pay with my microsoft balance.

Not showing up here - is it because I've selected student discount?

Only options I get are Credit and Paypal :-/ do I need to actually have MSPoints on my balance before it shows up?

XBox Live Microsoft Points are out of stock at cdkeys - they have the other XBox Live vouchers but everywhere seems to imply it only works on digital downloads, not hardware.

Na not student related, got the styudent discount and microsoft points both available for me on checkout.

You're right! I just needed to buy the vouchers and redeem against the Microsoft Account.

I couldn't buy more than 5 * £50 vouchers though :( they restricted it.

Still, a further saving of £15, + 1% quidco + cdkeys quidco + student discount. Fingers X'ed they deliver :-(

Heard this too, went into John Lewis to see for myself. Wouldn't touch this even at £500 with a screen like that.

The screen isn't bad at all. You wouldn't find a better screen on a £500 laptop anyway. In fact unless your are spending over a grand you won't get a better screen.
#16
OOS.

I might have gone for it too (well, my daughter would have as she is at uni).

Just for the record, this arrived a few days ago.

Initially the laptop booted up with an error from the BIOS which didn't inspire confidence levels much :-( - according to the bios there was a cooling system issue! However fans did spin up so *shrugs* weird. HP troubleshooting suggested updating the bios (hmmm....) - I did that but nothing changed. Oddly enough upgrading Windows to a newer build fixed it! (bizarre - it makes no sense - but hey - the system error isn't there anymore.)

Calls to Microsoft weren't helpful at all - I'd saved an extra £20 over the price listed here and worst case scenario I'd have to return the laptop, and get those Microsoft credits back, lol. Don't know what I'd use £250 of MS credits (sometimes the whole bargaining thing isn't what you bargained for.)


Now onto the laptop:

It's brilliant. The plastics feel cheap - they flex under tension. And as much as its designed to be a gaming laptop it isn't as garish as I first thought which is a plus point. It looks quite nice!

The earlier comments on the screen are a misnomer - the screen is lovely. The matt effect makes it appear a little washed out - every matt screen I've seen looks that way tbh. Viewing angles are great, responsiveness is great, detail is great.

Performance is amazing - I'm running most games on high to maximum settings at native HD resolution.

Sound is above average - though could do with more bass. I don't believe the bang and olufson hype. Basically it's "good" but nothing amazing.



Verdict: For £620 - Initial hiccups don't inspire confidence but I think the error is moot, and aside from the cheap flexing of the plastics [my only real negative about the laptop] - I don't imagine anything would come close for a while.

I would definitely buy this again at this price :-P basically.

My gf is a college student doing HND would she be able to get student discount ?
