Also if anyone is aware of any better deals at similar/better specs I would appreciate a link/feedback. Thanks.


Depending on what you are looking for there are other options, but not cheaper:

There's a 256GB SSD+1TB/16GB RAM/1050Ti Inspiron Gaming 15 7000 from Dell for £980 until the 22nd (10% off code INSPIRON10) http://www.dell.com/uk/p/inspiron-15-7567-laptop/pd?&ref=gaming-page

£809 for the GTX1050 4GB, 256GB SSD (no mechanical drive) and i5 7300-HQ. Worse processor than this (no hyperthreading, just 4 cores), but battery life will be better and 4GB RAM will be better on the GPU. HDD vs SSD is a toss up depending on your use. 128GB+1TB vs 256GB. Same link as above. You can probably add an extra harddrive, but you can't add more RAM to the GPU, so the 4GB is more future proof.

There's a 17" Omen from LaptopsDirect with a GTX1060 http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/hp-omen-17-w196na-core-i5-6300hq-8gb-1tb-128gb-ssd-geforce-gtx-1060-6gb-1-z6l29ea/version.asp

I just ordered the 1050Ti Dell with an extra 4% cashback (hopefully) through work, so £950 or so all in. The battery life sold me on it. Up to 11 hours with light use (per actual tests), 7 hours or so video, maybe 3 hours gaming. Most others seem to have much worse battery life.


Link doesn't launch for me.

Is the dell a refurb? I've found some good refurb options around a similar price for the Inspiron but I could be tempted by the one you listed as I have a 15% off code but unsure which laptop you tried to list (well precisely which I should say)
Hmm,

I asked the 2 questions about (above backpack and free game) so cheers for confirming you got a backpack @gerdleah. It now appears laptopsdirect have sneakily REMOVED the photos of the backpack and have updated their listing with the FREE rocket league game with the purchase.

I asked them to confirm if you get the backpack now or not but they haven't replied to my email, so I'm gonna buy another laptop elsewhere instead.
I have an MSI GE72 6QD from last year. It's essentially the predecessor to this laptop and I was very impressed with it (even if I am new to PC gaming).
The GTX 1050 is supposed to give a 30% improvement on performance over the 960M in my laptop, and mine can run MGS5, Dishonored 2 and The Witcher 3 on Very High at 30-45 fps. Not perfect but enough for more casual gaming. Back then that laptop cost £950 as a special deal, so this seems like a bargain.

You might want to find a laptop with more VRAM in its graphics card, as this only has 2GB. Might not be very futureproof. You might want to do some more research and not take my word for it though. The processor used seems a bit overkill compared to the graphics card, but it will allow for very quick encoding of videos if that's your thing.

What I can vouch for in this laptop (as it is very similar to mine) is excellent audio out of the jack; a vast collection of IO; solid IPS display; great boot times (thanks to the SSD + HD); good RGB backlit keyboard and passable trackpad.

Mine was reportedly quite hard to open up and you may void your warranty, so consider that. However you can most likely upgrade the available RAM to at least 16GB. Some distributors will arrange this for you on request (as mine did) so you can keep your warranty and avoid breaking something.
Just received the laptop and I can confirm it comes with the backpack. At work just now so will let you know if you get a free game too.
I never saw a free game comment. Can't see it now either. Some sites seem to be offering Rocket League though for laptops over £500. This is just speculation though.

Xiaomi better phones same price band .

Speaking as a person who has had a xiaomi redmi note 2 and now a xiaomi redmi note 4. I can tell you that it's not a good experience so far with the xiaomi redmi note 4. A significant number of apps don't work including an essential "call confirm" app. There are issues with people not being able to hear me unless connected through Bluetooth. Checking the Internet shows that it is a common problem with these phones. All issues combined, I would not recommend the xiaomi redmi note 4.

Don't want to hijack thread so quick suggestion Jabaltariq. If your problem is that people can't hear you when you use a wired headset /mic then would recommend you get soundabout app on playstore. Had same problem on note 3 but this has completely fixed. Default settings but after install shut down and restart phone.

its now out dated this phone not worth the money

Remember when my iPhone bent and Android fans laughed but now an Android phone does it, it's suddenly a feature?

iPhone 6: Bends when it's meant to remain rigid. Bending = defect.
LG G Flex: Bends because it's designed to "flex". Bending = feature.

great phone have one now on marshmallow battery good four hours screen time its near indestructable never used screen protector and not a mark on it even fell off a rollercoaster at blackpool and survived.the only downside to this phone is the screen brightness on a sunny day its a struggle to see it otherwise its perfect never overheats camera still performs well and the snapdragon wipes the floor with the budget ones mentioned above its a phone you can either love or hate i love mine its perfect for my use and very underated lg actually gave this phone plenty of love updated it about six times due to it been first snapdragon 810 phone and it did underperform and overheat at first not now runs brilliant

Excellent deal. Even if this supplier is no good you should be able to get someone like AO to price match.

Thanks for posting Pick_Me.

These have been out less than week ?


The pros have been out less than a week ?
Tell that to Fenwicks then - I've seen them displayed there for the past 6 months
Ive been reading about them for a year


I've read all the comments here and it's clear you are wrong Phil. The model advertised here has only just been released. You appear ignorant to that fact when trying to suggest a store has been selling them for months. Stop being a judgemental d1ck and just apologise for being wrong spactard.
I used laptops direct a couple of weeks ago. Monitor arrived, noticed the tiniest of marks on the plastic frame. they offered to replace or knock £50 off the price. I took the £50.

I'd probably use them again to be fair!

Thank you for your price match request for the 2017 Apple iPad Pro 10.5", A10X Fusion, iOS10, iOS10, Wi-Fi, 64GB, Space Grey.
I have looked into your request and will be happy to match the price of £604.92 for the 2017 Apple iPad Pro 10.5", A10X Fusion, iOS10, iOS10, Wi-Fi, 64GB, Space Grey (product code 86060811) seen at Laptops Direct.
This price match includes the £4.95 Laptops Direct charges for standard delivery.

Are you taking out the Added care with John Lewis ?

I'm not sure on the price for the 10.5 inch model,but for the 12.9 inch it was £70 for 3 years accidental damage cover,which doesn't seem that bad when you consider Apple charge £89 for only 2 years.

Oh and you should do the decent thing and apologise to people for getting confused and getting defensive.
As pompous as the rest.
Mountains and molehills spring to mind.
Along with whining and delusions of importance too
Tell me how long the "iPad Pro" has been out, then ?
A week ? Or do you then split hairs and then start wailing like a 5 year old that it is JUST the smaller one, also named the "Pro" ?
Give it a rest and by all means pay over the odds.
Your loss

Why you asking me when the iPad Pro was released ? I already explained all the release dates and sizes.But I will tell you again if you genuinely want to know.

Ooooh, and it's gone negative. What a surprise!

Even though it's the best price out there at the moment except for one terrible supplier.

Wouldn't it be good if people voted on the deal, not because they didn't like the product?

That's it, I'm voting cold on all the protein powder and stuff like that.

Not really, I don't care *sniff*.

My feelings, etc... ;)

uhhh got an email saying a replacement has been sent out when I asked for a refund, phoned up and they told me they'd cancel and give a refund and would send confirmation. Been a couple of hours and they haven't sent a confirmation email through, it's times like these that I realise how I take amazon for granted haha
I ended up ordering a Samsung 40 mu6400. arrives today.
sent mine back yesterday, they said in a previous email they need to do testing to ensure it's faulty first, so hopefully they don't try to pull anything like saying it works fine. I took some video of the issues just in case
Wwas just gonna get this but its gone back up to 220 :(

Doubt it was parcelforce's fault (delivery was done via them but collection later will be done by DPD) cause the invoice note inside the package was Hp omen.

I just ordered this laptop from laptopdirects.com after coming to the same conclusion as you. Worth the money. The second choose would have been the Asus rog GL702 which cost £1129 but after googling around, I found more threads about overheating and GPU throttling on this Asus model than Hp omen (might be due to the very slim dimensions asus has, and hence, bad cooling, even with 3 fans?) So, to be safe, I went for Hp omen.
However, I just received it today BUT they sent me the wrong laptop!!!! Now I have to wait for recollection tomorrow and probably it will take a week before they can send the correct laptop.....
Wow that is... really not good. I researched the company beforehand and they seem trustworthy. Hopefully their customer service should be up to scratch.
Fortunately mine came without any problems. Was it a different spec of the same product line they sent you or just another laptop alltogether?
They sent me a HP 255 G5, a completely difference laptop. So, I am waiting for DPD to collect the wrong laptop later today.
And it will probably take 2-3days for them to get it back, followed by them sending the correct laptop which will take 2 days... All these debacle is frustrating. I guess I will make sure to open and inspect the product before signing for the next delivery..

I really wouldnt be surprised if it was DPD's fault, slapping the wrong dispatch note on it etc. They seem to mess up a significant portion of their deliveries... seems nearly every time I hear about something going wrong with someone's internet order they have a hand in it!
Hope it all works out for you. Not exactly what you want when spending that much money.

I've got an ASUS chromebook which I love and use daily for browsing the interweb. Got 4gb ram and I can easily have several tabs open. I don't use it for more than just web browsing though, there aren't many great killer apps on the platform that I've found. Even video playback apps are poor and struggle with MP4/MKV which is a bit disappointing as it'd be great to use on a plane to watch stuff.

Been waiting a looooong time for that update that'll allow Android apps though which I was hoping to use an android video app.


I bought the R11 4gb/32gb about a month ago. I'm using mx player pro (was on offer here for free a few days ago, may still be free) for watching vids as I travel. Prior to mx pro, I used mx player for several years on various tablets. Both played every format I tried, including mkv.

Is anyone using this with echo dot with Bluetooth?


Mine used to work with my Dot but one day it stopped working and now the Dot can't connect to it. I suspect this might be more to do with the Dot being a bit rubbish as the speaker works fine with everything else.
Did it works with Soundcloud and Google Music what about if I get 2 or 3 speakers if they working simultaneously together?

Yes - get this hooked up to your wifi, and then it connects to Spotify Connect. Nice thing is that it has a decent battery too, so I take it into the garden on a nice day. It normally lives in the kitchen.

Reviewers are being a bit too harsh on Ryzen with the gaming benchmarks. It's like a mere 2-6 FPS difference between Ryzen and Inte;s 7600K in performance on games. Ryzen otherwise beats intels offerings in other non gaming benchmarks though like video editing and number crunching stuff.
If something is £80 cheaper and gives more FPS i'm sure going for that.

you'll be wanting a Ryzen R5 of some description then. I recommend a 1500X. i5 prices, 6 cores.
also - anyone quoting warhammer total war scores, should check if the benchmark includes the "bretonnia" patch as that was basically the "ryzen fix" patch. Not a night and day difference but it closed the gap a good bit.

quite interested by this chip! about 10 years ago i invested in one of the (then new) dual core x2 4400 chips, and that desktop machine soldiered on for a fair few years before i moved to a newer laptop. Currently still running that laptop with a i7-2670QM processor. It is now however 5 years old, and the onboard 540m graphics are starting to show their age. How would i find the jump to an AMD Ryzen system such as this?
Clearly (hopefully!) it will be an improvement, but will it be the same kind of jump i experienced on my previous upgrade path?
Jumping from a laptop to a new desktop should make a fair difference - especially if your laptop doesn't have an SSD or enough memory. But your Sandy Bridge quad core i7 (even these days most i7 mobile chips are dual core) isn't that slow.
I guess it really depends on what you do. A octo-core processor like doesn't perform well with everything as not many program scale to so many cores since not everything can be broken down into parallel processes.
Really a question like this can only be answered by you reading reviews and trying to find benchmarks of program you use. Here are some sites which have benchmark databases but it's not always possible to compare everything:http://www.anandtech.com/bench/CPU (they won't let you compared an SB i7 to Ryzen as the Sandy Bridge results were run on with their old test suite under Win7 and the Ryzen ones with a new Win10 suite.)http://www.hardware.fr/articles/959-17/indices-performance.html
That scores the i7 2600K (which runs at base frequency of 3.4GHz vs your 2.2Ghz) 131.9 vs 254.0 for this Ryzen.https://www.ht4u.net/reviews/2017/amd_ryzen_7_reloaded_r7_1700_bis_1800x_erneut_im_test/index29.php
Where the i70-2600K scores 72% of the Ryzen 7 1700's speed in apps, but 90% in games.https://www.computerbase.de/thema/prozessor/rangliste/
There you can click on 'Bearbeiten' to check/unckeck individual tests.
Of course you should try and figure out what your mobile i7-2760QM scores compared to the desktop i7-2600K as well. Passmark gives the 2600K 8486 versus 6635 for the 2760QM so you could assume that in the above comparisons you CPU should have scored roughly 20% less.

Great response dude, much appreciated. Follow-on question : Are AMD architectures built to work more efficiently with AMD/ATI Cards vs Nvidia? Basically if i bought this Ryzen would you be better going for an AMD/ATI Card or stick with Nvidia. For the last 15 or so years ive pretty much been a Nvidia user so would probably want to stay that way unless there was significant performance issues

@Nate1492 - This is a video that explains to me why Ryzen will benefit many of us.
If you purely game with nothing else in the background then there is no comparison that Intel will win hands down, with somewhere between 10-20% higher average framerate (although there are plenty of people claiming the Ryzen games smoother because of it's increased 0.1% and 1% lows).
However, for people like me (who game with background apps such as Spotify, Twitch, OBS, multiple Chrome tabs), the Ryzen is the sensible choice because of it's superior multitasking. The i7 will always have higher performance with pure gaming, but the frames do start to drop (I'm not making any massive claims of by how much here) once you add other applications into the mix.
If you think Intel is better, great! Go buy Intel! I won't try to dissuade you. But also, if people want to buy Ryzen's for their own reasons (I'm moving from a [email protected] to a Ryzen 1700 because I stream while gaming) then leave them to it.
Remember also, competition is good for all of us, so I welcome AMD coming back into the mix as I'm certain Intel have purposely stifled their own progress in the last 5 years (but that's another story).
Right, this is a misconception actually, on a number of levels.
1) Background apps, such as spotify, twitch, and multiple chrome tabs are very light on CPU use. Multitasking doesn't lend itself to multiple cores, turns out when you are not actively using a something, it is very low CPU use. So, you are speculating, and I'm saying you are mostly wrong.
Now, where you have some reasonable accuracy is streaming/rendering video. Although, I would suggest you took a shotgun approach and hit the one thing the Ryzen would be good at. Streaming video (OBS) while playing, might bring Ryzen closer to the I7 7700k. But it might not either, it depends.
2) Ryzen hasn't shown to be better at .1% or 1% frames, so suggesting it's 'smoother' without any evidence to back it up is just 'this purchase was definitely worth it, I can 'feel' how much nicer it is' jumping in front of 'yeah, it's no different, I wasted 500 for the same experience'.
Competition is great, *good, source backed, information is even better*.
Making claims that are '*maybe true, who knows, you look it up*' is a bad way to help people.

Or, maybe he's talking some truth as discovered:

That B at the end of the title is the CeX grade, so good luck as grade B is basically one notch above 'totally trashed', even their grade A is around 7-8/10 for most other sellers.
For the actual laptop, anyone else think it's a bit of a mish-mash of parts? Other than the i7-6700HQ and 1080p display, the rest of it is stuff you'd find on budget machines, it's actually not a great proposition IMO.
I ordered it because I thought B wouldn't be that bad. The way you put it is regretting my purchase lol.

Because I've ordered hundreds of items from CeX before and their B grade is notoriously bad from experience - I would have paid a little more and bought new to be honest. You can easily return it to a store but why potentially waste your time with this? Also their warranty is near worthless, it does have 24 months but you will have to fight hard if you want to use it.

nice 950m. tesco had one for 479. i got a 3nd hand 940m on ebay for 280 but that was a bargain. only use it when marketing so can play xcom. this is a good gaming pc on the move. but for home use best off getting a refurb i3 desktop for 100 on ebay and an rx 470 or 480 for 150 quid and make a 1080p ultra gaming pc for 250 quid. with the change buy a chromebook
quite a weak processor, weaker than many of the newer i5/i7 U chips but yeah it does have a decent level of graphics though doesn't say if GDDR3or5 which makes a big difference too
only one review and it states 'good resolution' bit of a stupid review but surely it means it cant be base 1366*768?

Better off getting a Moto G4 at this price, the MTk in this is horrible
Cheers for that, does the g4 run ok with only 2gb?
Yeah the totally stock Android helps, you can get it for 119.99 on ebay refurbishment from Tesco or Argos. It's not cutting edge or anything, but it's a better performer than this. Of course there are also Chinese brand phones like Xiaomi who blow both out the water, but seeing as this is a domestic deal I thought it'd be better to compare like with like
Nice 1, looking at spending around £120 so was looking at Xiaomi but confused with models and specs. The reason I was looking at Marshmallow was because of adaptive storage as mine on lollipop is running out. Thanks for the reply.
No problem.
If you are up for looking at the Chinese phones, for £128 you can get the Redmi 4 Prime:
Snapdragon 625
3GB of Ram
32GB of internal storage with Micro SD card
No Band 20 but only o2 rely on it and its MVNO's, I guess if you're that dependent on it then it's a dealbreaker
1080p screen
Fingerprint
Almost guaranteed to get aftermarket support as it's a popular Snapdragon
Anyway, the cons are obviously the long shipping, no warranty (although these things are very well built), a bit of technical knowledge needed to get it up to scratch.
Just thought I would clarify
We are actually on Tesco so assume with Tesco using O2 they would rely in it too. Fingerprint scanner not a must. Used to be really up on phones, rooting and installing custom roms etc but since the cheap Chinese invasion phones I'm completely stumped.
Ahh right, the G4 is the one to buy then, loads of custom roms and it'll be supported for years. Band 20 is omitted from all but the premium Chinese devices mostly

I have the 1081hd setup and can't fault the system and remote access etc. Only tip is when mounting looking down the side of the wall covering the drive, move the camera outwards as the infra-red lights the wall and loses image on subject. But you can blank the recording of next doors area if you want.
nictry
Record resolution only 960h though so only HD if actually viewing at the time.
Cameras will all need upgrading too so not really worth it.

It will be CVBS, so it will only support 960h (960 x 576 pixel) cameras (the widescreen equivalent of D1 standard def), whether live viewing or recording.

Supporting a 1080p display means you should be able to view a 4 camera, 2 x 2 grid at their full 960h resolution.

To support HD cameras you'd either need to go with IP system , or a DVR that uses TVI, CVI or,AHD and compatible cameras.

Horrible case, the outside looks fine but inside there is 1 fan no room for any more and no ventilation, not sure what they were thinking using it for a gaming pc
Cold. Should have return in title for sure, misleading.
Thought this was hot until I saw it was a refurb. Might want to add that to the title.

kkane_irl
values are on the high side. PC is basic with very little future proofing.
How are values on the high side? CPU is 177 at novatech, 185 at Ebuyer, 970s sell for £200 or just short on eBay as used, a Socket 1151 Motherboard is at a minimum £50 unless on sales ranging up to 100+ dependant on features. How can it not be future proof, hardware is still current and powerful.


Right you seem to be blind to your own deal so I'll explain why this deal is going cold.

not future proof because as far as I can see it doesn't tell you what mobo this is so buying a k series CPU would be pointless cause you probably won't be able to overclock.

the gtx 970 at £200??? get a better/newer card for that.

power supply is rated as what? probably couldn't handle a future more powerful g/card.

does this case support USB 3.1 or USB type c?

this PC is basically used as there's only 3MONTH warranty. so stop treating these parts as new.
Not sure what the he'll is going in with that case, but if you're sticking it under a desk, then it's not an issue.

I think this is a decent deal if you want a pre-built pc that you can game on. I can't put the build together for any less.

Would say the slightly higher Stormforce with the 960m would be better, unless you save up a bit more then you could get the HP Omen with the 1050.
Can't find anything on weight or screen resolution :(
Surely better with faster graphics rather than the quad core cpu? Can't see if screen is full HD or not?
