Cracking! I've been monitoring the deals on Currys.. kaby lake deal not available, difference is £500 + the £100 reduction. For 8GB RAM and 256GB storage extra, which can be upgraded anyway!
Ok kaby lake not a big deal in performance, but it does allow playing 4K netflix/youtube videos. And the touch screen is extra too (I think)
Ordered and heat! And I think the 3yr warranty extension is a must

I assume that this is a fake/joke entry and that I should be disappointed with myself for even trying to find this laptop? Well then I am suitably chastened .

True but
A. The link you provided is working thanks!
B. Kaby lake is only a minor update on the current Skylake CPUs. The next gen CPU is meant to be the major update.
C. B is very important I suppose :)

Thanks again!

How do you get 0% pay later? as far as i can see there is 10% off for first credit order, but it says APR 39.9%?
#12
Interest is only charged if you don't pay fully within the agreed timescale (3, 6 or 12 months)

promo code KPAGM, then select 6, 9 or 12 months bnpl from a drop box

This is a real good find! I'm a Mac user but had Dell XPS for work and they are great computers! My only thing is the higher models Dell don't offer the 1080p Matte display....why Dell? Most people buying these would trade that for the extra 3 hours battery!

It seems to me that you just can't win with laptop deals on HUKD. If you post something with 1-2 generation old processors the deal gets slated for not being the latest processor and when you do post something with the very latest chip somebody complains that you don't actually need something that powerful!

I think rose gold is a poor description of the colour on Dells part. check out the videos
#22
is rose gold a pinkish tint?

Yeah I'd rather not have the touch and QHD, in return for more battery life. I wish it was as discounted on the other models.

Ah well. I either missed out on a great deal or I saved £900. I'm happy with the latter.

I bought a laptop from very in September... Ive since spend 14 phone calls, 3 web chats and 2 tweets trying to get sense out of them. Ive been hung up on numerous times and still do not know what has happened the £100 credit for Buy now Pay later. There was a late payment fee and interest applied in October, and iwas also a nightmare trying to explain to THEM that it was 12 months interest free... Seriously not worth the hassle!

You do for 4K Netflix videos...

Netflix 4K streaming comes to the PC—but it needs Kaby Lake CPU

Netflix 4K streaming is coming to Windows PCs later this week—but only for the lucky few using seventh generation Kaby Lake processors from Intel.

Netflix launched 4K streaming in 2014 on a select number of TVs before rolling it out to dedicated streaming boxes like the Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and Nvidia Shield. 4K streaming on PC was notably missing from the rollout, due in part to piracy and DRM concerns from Hollywood studios and TV networks.

In an effort to placate the studios, Microsoft introduced "PlayReady 3.0" with the Windows 10 Anniversary update. PlayReady 3.0 is a hardware-based DRM (digital rights management) system that requires dedicated decoding hardware, either on the CPU or on the graphics card, preventing the video stream from being captured in software or via an external capture device.

There's also the matter of hardware decoding support for 10-bit HEVC, the 4K codec used by Netflix and other streaming services. Currently, only Intel's seventh generation Kaby Lake processors support 10-bit HEVC decoding. Older sixth generation Skylake CPUs only support 8-bit HEVC decoding. Technically, Nvidia's 10-series graphics cards—including the GTX 1080, GTX 1070, and GTX 1060—feature 10-bit HEVC decoding and PlayReady 3.0 support, but aren't listed as compatible.

And then there's the browser: 4K streaming only works in Microsoft Edge, because it's the only browser that supports PlayReady DRM. Basically, streaming 4K Netflix on a PC requires a CPU that's in barely any devices right now (desktop chips aren't expected until sometime in 2017), the latest version of Windows 10, and using an unpopular browser, making it a largely useless feature.

Kaby Lake CPUs also feature full hardware accelerated HEVC and VP9 decoding. The latter of which is used by YouTube.

http://www.anandtech.com/show/10610/intel-announces-7th-gen-kaby-lake-14nm-plus-six-notebook-skus-desktop-coming-in-january/3

The major feature change in the Kaby Lake-U/Y media engine is the availability of full hardware acceleration for encode and decode of 4K HEVC Main10 profile videos. This is in contrast to Skylake, which can support HEVC Main10 decode up to 4Kp30, but does so using a “hybrid” process that spreads out the workload over the CPU, the GPU’s media processors, and the GPU’s shader cores. As a result, not only can Kaby Lake process more HEVC profiles in fixed function hardware than before, but it can do so at a fraction of the power and with much better throughput.

Also along these lines, Kaby Lake has implemented full fixed function 8-bit encode and 8/10-bit decode support for Google’s VP9 codec. Skylake offered hybrid decode support for the codec, which is useful from a feature standpoint, but is a bit more problematic in real-world use since it’s not as power-efficient to use VP9 a codec implemented in fixed function hardware. Google has proven eager to serve up VP9 to its YouTube users, so they can now much more efficiently decode the codec. Meanwhile, on the encode side, brand-new to Kaby Lake is VP9 encoding support, to go with the aforementioned HEVC encode support.

Fair enough. But what I was talking about is pretty much the "Hybrid" model mentioned in your articles which is why I said that you don't "need" Kaby-Lake for 4K. So for those of us prepared to hack around (which I do anyway) we "might" be able to get it working. For the rest? As the article states:

And then there's the browser: 4K streaming only works in Microsoft Edge, because it's the only browser that supports PlayReady DRM. Basically, streaming 4K Netflix on a PC requires a CPU that's in barely any devices right now (desktop chips aren't expected until sometime in 2017), the latest version of Windows 10, and using an unpopular browser, making it a largely useless feature.

Who says DRM is bad for consumers, eh?
