Have been looking all over for a reasonable spec laptop at decent price that will be able to play the likes of Fifa 17 etc.

This is the cheapest I can find with the GeForce 950m Graphics card, which is not by any means the most powerful GPU, but YouTube videos suggest new games will play at a reasonable standard, without breaking the bank.

Reduced from £599.99. Also you can get another £7.38 off through Top Cashback.



*Intel Skylake Core i5-6300HQ 2.3GHz

*8GB DDR4 RAM + 1TB HDD

*15.6" Full HD + DVDRW

*NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M 2GB Graphics

*Windows 10 Home 64bit

One thing you might want to bear in mind is that laptops like this won't be available at this relatively low price point for much longer. Thanks to all the idiots that voted for Brexit, we now have a plummeting currency and very soon now we are going to enter a prolonged period of inflation. It will be the 1970's all over again but without the decent soundtrack.

I am not PC expert but 5 years ago I bought my HP laptop for £500ish with no GPU just onboard that could not even run very old metal of honour games. So in comparison years on for the money it looks like good value to me.

I bought an Asus laptop similar to this with the 850m card 18 months ago for £562. This is the first gaming laptop I've seen that 'beats' mine and is cheaper so a good spot OP!
I'm currently playing all the Assassin's Creed games back-to-back and they do look increasingly wonderful in 1080p with all settings maxed out. The 850m/950m cards might not be state of the art now but who in their right mind pays £1,800+ for an Nvidia 1080 laptop just to play games?

better by no more than a 10% but considering that these gpu's are very weak, then it is a 10% better of nothing virtually

This has quite a decent cpu, genuine quad core(skylake too) which can boost to 3.2GHz. The GPU, while not great is still a major jump from integrated. All in all, quite a decent price for such a (semi) gaming laptop. Heat from me.

Just noticed . GEFORCE® GTX 950M DISCRETE GRAPHICS CARD WITH DDR3 2GB VRAM....DDR3!!!!oO
That will hurt performance a bit but even so, the reviews seem to indicate that it still performs fairly well.

Useless? I mean you can run most things at 1080 without a major issue, have you actually used these chips?

Comments like these put people off these deals. It's a great deal for what it is. A mid range gaming laptop.

One thing to worry about is if you like playing older games (DirectX 9), is Win10 will force you to play with the Intel APU graphics rather than the dedicated Nvidia GPU. Right now there's no real fix than using wrappers for some games. This is only a problem on laptops with Win10.

Short version:

A vote for BREXIT was a vote for the complete unknown, that isn't your fault, that's the fault of the idiots in charge.

However, voting for BREXIT was, in the short-medium term always going to have a hugely negative impact to our economy.

Why ?

Investors don't like risk.

Money was already slowly leaving the UK because
1) USD interest rates were up
2) Uncertainty over BREXIT vote

No one actually thought it would be OUT, bookies on the night were running 7/1 odds etc

Investors have been taking money out of the U.K. ever since, causing GBP value to drop to mind googling lows, hopefully it's near bottom but I wouldn't bet money on it.

Weak pound = expensive imports

Expensive imports = higher prices

Higher prices = higher inflation

Higher inflation = higher interest rates

That is however one way to look at it, it's not a certainty, but it's a reasonable assumption Joe is making with the information available

Time will tell

PPS, I don't agree with calling anyone an idiot for how they voted, I think the entire thing was a sham with those in charge doing a terrible job of providing decent information.

Personally in the longer term I think BREXIT might actually be for the good, if I'm alive or not is another matter though

You missed one, cheaper pound = cheaper prices for those overseas so in theory more exports -except- that we need raw materials/ingredients to make those exports with which we get from overseas, which are more expensive, so actually that doesn't work either.

I'm guessing this has resurfaced because we're nearly at parity with the euro and the general price rises are now starting -before- we've even left the euro.
At this rate we'll be moving to Poland to try and find jobs

But we are safer and when the EU collapses which it will especially after brexit :), Everyone should stop being so short sighted, it was predicted that the pounds value would drop. The leave vote won for a reason. Just wait, this time in 10-20 years business will be booming again. That's if WW3 hasn't broke out with Hillary or Trump in power, Genuinely scary stuff :(.

We haven't had serious inflation in the UK for such a long time now that it's no surprise that people have forgotten what a destructive wrecking ball it is. Absolutely everything goes up in price; fuel, food, electronics, cars, etc. Salary growth and saving rates initially lag behind so the majority of people (except for rich stock brokers like Nige) get poorer in real terms. That's when industrial and political unrest kick in; a genie that's almost impossible to put back in the bottle once it's out. If the '70's are any guide, just when you think it can't get any worse, it does! Inevitably, after years of pain, governments act. Interest rates are rapidly ramped up to check inflation, industry withers on the vine, people lose their jobs in droves and the housing market collapses. At which point, we once again become the 'sick man of Europe' again.

So on that note, I would commend this laptop deal to anyone that might need one.

950m for £550? When you could get the better performing 860m for less? And when Nvidia now have the 10XX series?

You can't call this a "gaming laptop". Very misleading title as "gaming laptop" generally refers to a laptop that can play every modern game at native resolution.

COLD.

These days I use my laptop (with it's mere 850m) almost exclusively for gaming so your voiced opinion seems to be contradicted by my experience. And I'm retired and I game a lot so I would probably have noticed if things weren't working out. Like I said, I'm currently working through the Assassin's Creed games in 1080p and the card happily copes with everything up to Black Flag (have decided not to buy Rogue and Unity until I've played all the other games I've amassed over the years). I really just don't buy this, 'if it's not top spec, it's rubbish' philosophy that people like you spout. The cheapest Nvidia 1080 laptop on Saveonlaptops sells for £2460!! That is a ridiculous amount of money to spend on something as frivolous and meaningless as 'playing games'.

All you have to do is look at the benchmarks from the hundreds of websites out there to know I'm right.

The minimum for a "gaming laptop" is really a 860m/960m. There's a big performance drop once you go down to the 850m/950m.
