Gaming laptops have never been a good purchase. Do you really need to play high end games when not at home?Spend a 3rd less and buy a Desktop of the same spec and then buy a half decent laptop to use when not at home.
​this is the perfect solution in my home. the spare room where my desktop was set up is now a nursery so the computer desk had to go. No where else to permanently set up a pc so a laptop was the perfect solution.


YOU PUT A NEW BORN CHILD OVER A COMPUTER? Mother of God, what is wrong with you. Its a well known fact "in the boot of a car nobody can hear a baby crying" you could have had restful nights and a good desktop. OK you would have been in prison for child neglect but think of the positives.

I do like MSI and I love that laptop just 1300 quids!

Originally I only wanted a laptop for the portability but then I thought if I get one I might as well get one with a decent graphics card (for a laptop). I'm not a "pc gamer", I do my main gaming on console on the big telly but this'll do for when the mrs is hogging that.

lol at a raid setup on a gaming laptop, err no thanks, deconstruct
Its Raid 0 so you do not lose space and gain OS speed. and the 1TB is where you would store you games, except for those that benefit from an SSD.

RAID 0 on SSD's really is a waste of time. Plenty fast enough without wasting a disk striping

Better than the price listed on Dell's website. Dell sales rep did offer 1022 but delivery with Dell is normally slow. 6th Generation Intel® Core™ i5-6300HQ Quad Core (6M Cache, up to 3.2 GHz) 15.6"…

The Dell website version has increased in price from £1099 to £1149 however the spec has been upgraded (across the range).
This version now has a 6th gen i7 processor (instead of the i5) and now has a 256 Gb Pcie SSD.
The battery has been upgraded to the 84 Whr.
Not bad for a £50 increase
(Not to mention the fact that a quick call will get you a 7% discount on the asking price)

Hey, thanks for the heads up, that's great! I was hoping they would be offering non-HDD models with non-4K screens, and a bigger battery, like they do in the USA. Even more tempting now!

Ended up getting this for £1035 from Amazon with an extra SSD to replace the 32GB drive. Cracking laptop, really impressed with the screen (1080p).
Nice - what SSD did you get, have you replaced it already? Happy with the sound/fan noise?
I haven't replaced it yet, I went out and bought a set of torx screw drivers but they are the wrong size.... The hard drive is a m.2 samsung 850 evo 500GB.
Haven't heard any fan noise yet but I've not done anything beyond browsing and casting netflix to the TV.
Was pretty surprised with the speakers, for a thin laptop they have good volume and clear sound.
Hey - how's it going with the XPS? Was it difficult replacing the SSD? I'd love to know how noisy the HDD is, what the sound and battery life are like now that you've used it for a while?
Thanks!
Replacing the SSD was very easy mechanically. It took me a little while to get it to recognise the HDD once I had put the new SSD in, but it just needed switching back on in the BIOS. Re-installing windows was straight forward with a Flash Drive.
I don't hear any sound from the HDD, but I'm not actually using it.
I've started playing Wolfenstein New Order on it - that gets the fan blowing and it is noisy.
Still happy with the sound, but when I watch TV/movies on it, I generally tend to wear headphones.
Battery life is probably about 3.5- 4 hours with browsing, streaming etc.
Thanks for your response. When doing office work and surfing, can you hear the fans? Happy with it?

Nope I don't hear the fan, its the quietest laptop I've had.

Yes, and would purchase again if I had the choice.

I've tried F1 2015 and wolfenstein, both with the graphics settings on high, and it has no problems running them at all.

Have the i3 15.6" version. Great laptop, but the battery life is pretty terrible. Will last an hour and a half just surfing the web. Everything is spot on though.

Voted hot.

Flex 2 is the only budget laptop which actually comes with decent FHD IPS screen at this price range. Its screen is actually good, not like most budget FHD laptops have rabbish TN panel screens.

Its i5 4210U is very close to the current norm i5 5200U performance wise. Do not under-estimated it.
i5 5th generation is still very widely used in a lot of laptops.

At this price, it is hot.

If not mind refurbished, the 15.6 inch with the same specs can be bought at £330 on ebay.
radior28
it so cheap cause it's 4th generation of i5 and you already have 6th in stores. still good price.
Gerry557
Full HD, reasonable battery life, relatively light. A good mix of specs between portability and power. Not really a gaming machine but most gamers want loads of power and big screens anyway. I have been impressed with these 14"ers.

Are they getting cheaper cos new, more expensive tech is about to be released. Hot vote from me

nice laptop nice resolution for a 15 inch screen
Nice resolution for a 5 inch smartphone.
1366 x 768 is a normal resolution for this price of laptop. You would be paying £100 - £200 for a Full HD one with similar specs.
I only paid £350 for a HP Envy 15 with full HD screen, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD, 8GB SSD for OS to boot from, AMD A10-5750M Quad Core 2.5GHz (3.5GHz with boost) with Radeon HD 8650 2GB GPU, plus all the gimmicks such as Fingerprint Reader, Backlit Keyboard, 4 USB 3.0 ports etc... Literally annihilates the specs on this for an extra £50
It's a decent deal if you're after a cheap laptop for your little sister or your Nan perhaps.
Where is this bargain please?
This laptop (envy) is 499 unless you can share the link to get it for 350 which by the look of it we would all appreciate?!
When its time to show proof he dissapears
Have you ever heard of sleep? It was nearly midnight and I went to bed if that's ok with you? I got it back in June from Currys/PC World. It's the J151SA model which I don't think they make anymore. I never said I got it recently. I just stated that it was possible to get this spec or better with FHD screen without paying an extra £200

To be fair, they have been offline since their post. For a laptop like that though and at that price it has to be ex-demo or have been some sort of localised, mispriced deal and not a fair comparison. I agree though, the screen at best can only be described as indifferent.

I found the particular one he bought.

It was a refurbished from Currys. See link below.
http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hp-envy-15-j151sa-refurbished-15-6-laptop-silver-pc-world-349-99-inc-del-2194712

It is still very hot for the price despite been refurbished.

But that kind of deal is one off, should not be used to judge any brand new which is available in large quantity.


I didn't judge. I said it was a good deal. There was a comment that stated that a laptop of the same spec as this would cost £100-200 extra just for the FHD screen.

Great find op, powerful pc. This deal laptop was posted here -- http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/asus-i7-6700hq-16gb-1920x1080-15-6-geforce-gtx-960m-2gb-ddr5-128gb-ssd-2tb-hdd-899-2347119 --- but £20 dearer and with this deal you get a free mouse and laptop bag so that's great. However, this is now the 'old' model if you can call it that as Asus have just last month realised the Asus 552, this laptop here being the Asus 551vw! But again, this is a monster of a pc. If your buying just for games however and want to be future proofed then the 970m graphics card is a wise decision however the 960m is still a monster for a laptop and will be great for a few years yet.

Horrorwood
even though the price has increased slightly... wtf... why is this 65c?!

There is no laptop anywhere near this price with this kind of spec? It should be wayyyy hotter?!
makeshiftuk
I can vouch for the screen quality here - it's fantastic, I was skeptical from the reviews, but I don't understand why I ever was. I opted for the base model (not the UHD/touch screen version), and it's just fine. Ordered from saveonlaptops.co.uk for 699.99

Great looking machine, subtle Red highlights really set it off. Performs well, although I can't feel the 8Gb 'cache' doing anything just yet, maybe it needs time to 'warm up'. I will be installing an M2 SSD at some stage, and plan to stick the OS onto that.

Very solid and smart looking machine, and that lovely all singing and dancing GTX960M mated to a lovely i7. Match made in heaven. Half the price of an Alienware.. if there was some metric in existence that recorded bang per buck, this would be up there.
evildrneil
As the most expensive version of this comes with both standard and solid state drives it presumably should be possible to drop an SSD into one of these at a later date? (Assuming they ever appear back in stock of course - stock date has moved from the 5th to the 8th now!)

Edited By: evildrneil on Dec 31, 2015 08:53

Is it really 4GB of VRAM? Or 2+2(from RAM)? Because if it's 4GB this is ludicrously great for the price. Not that it's not a good price either way, don't get me wrong.

When it said HD i was going to get it but like you say its only 1366 768.
Always think it's misleading when the item does not have it on the page as its going to be one of the things a buyer is going to need to know.
My guess they have a hard time moving them on for that reason so omit it entirely.

The majority of HUKD members looking for a high-end laptop purchased this exact laptop during the Black Friday sales at Amazon UK for £999 (Lightening Deal). Maybe that's why it's been voted cold?

at least go 980m for this money

I doubt you will get a 980M and G Sync for this price.

At 1080p the 970M does a great job. G sync helps keep things smooth.

When I received mine the HDD was in the more central drive bay. It was more wedged in than secured. The second drive bay off to the side had a small plastic caddy in place. I switched the HDD over to this bay and added the new SSD in to the central bay. It's not 100% secure but the SSD is really light so probably better than it came from the factory.
giantdad
Picked up one of these and very happy, can poster answer tho, do you need an internal caddy to install a secondary hard drive? Ssd seems to have some movement.

Very tempted with this as a desktop replacement.
Does anyone have any other suggestions? I have never ever come across "Cube/Clevo" laptops before.
delmontebanana
My laptop just arrived! :) A few quick thoughts after using it for a day:

Package and Delivery:
Amazing! Very very well packaged and delivery was perfectly on time as scheduled.

Laptop Build:
My initial reaction was "wow, this thing is very plasticky!". I cant fault the build quality at all but the materials used to build it, it's clear that it's budget (I think it's the same plastic they use to build the inside of cars to give you an idea :) )
The keyboard has a full number pad on it so you'll find that when typing it takes adjusting to as you'll position your hands more towards the left of the laptop (not a negative, just takes adjusting to).
One small complaint is the size of the mouse tracker pad - it's pretty small to say the least, and comparing it to the rest of the laptop (a pretty big 17" laptop) it not only looks a bit ridiculous but also functionally, not great. Definitely worth investing in a wired/wireless mouse.
*Update* Another annoyance you may find is the lack physical volume keys and you have click FN and one of the function keys to increase/decrease the volume which isn't great. There's a very rarely used airplane-mode button and a camera screenshot button but i havent used them once and dont see myself using it anytime soon so I'm trying to see if they can be remapped.

Video/Audio/Performance:
I batched all of these areas up together as I think this machine is FANTASTIC when it comes to bang for buck.I'll add more here when I've installed GTA V and tested out the capabilities a bit.
*Update*: I ran Sims 4 in Ultra mode, it didn't break a sweat :) Installing GTA V now and will report back.

Did anyone spot the description states it has an SSD? It doesn't mention it anywhere else or the the size but I was mythed as to why it wouldn't be standard and when i saw that in the description... maybe a mistake, maybe not??
No SSD. It's a 1TB 7200RPM drive. It's 860 graphics and Haswell I7 so previous generation and disk type reflects that as well. Still a damn good price for the specification though.
mikecalm says there's space for a second drive, so adding a 250GB boot SSD would only cost about 50 quid and would transform this into an even better beast.

They do stock another variant of this laptop with an SSD I think they've just been a bit lazy with the descriptions. Having said that the SSD model is a lot more and it's not a hard job to add the SSD yourself and save some cash as I pointed out in the original post.

Never buying Asus again. If it doesn't last a year (and in my experience on more than one device it wont) they will fail to repair it properly repeatedly until the warranty runs out. Then they want you to pay. Just don't do it.

Hi Gulampo. Had the system around a week now. Screen quality is good enough for me. Far better than my previous laptop, and sufficient for the photo editing I do. Also good for watching movies. Overall speed is very good. Happy with the purchase.
Gulampo
Would anyone who has bought one of these do a small analysis on battery life/screen quality? Thanks. :)

I completely agree bluegollem. Lenovo are definitely the cheapest laptop brand for a reason :(
bluegollem
The Lenovo ThinkPad I had lasted less than a year before the keyboard broke. Support was non-existent. I had purchased an extended warranty that Lenovo denied any knowledge of, passing the blame back and forth between them and the distributor. Another Lenovo G series laptop I had a rubbish trackpad and lasted just over a year before the charging port broke up inside the laptop. Put me right off the company as a whole. I am a Mac user for business but these are for my kids and I've heard good things about HP support so they were my preferred option.

I don't really look to compete on what is a better deal mate. I have a life to get on with. Personally I prefer the HP deal, but others with a lower budget may prefer the Lenovo. That's completely understandable. You will find 1000s of people who will never buy a Lenovo again (any model), of which I am one.
HP as a brand, with excellent customer service and support, is what I prefer.
I saw your deal too, before making a purchase, it is on the same page of the same site - but I made the decision to go with the HP.
Good luck!

Agreed, there are also a lot of HP haters out there.

I am neutral to both brands. I know both brands produce some good laptops and some not good laptops.

it shouldn't struggle with those specs....I have an HP Pavillion AMD A10/Radeon R7 8GB and it runs most modern games on high or medium settings easily.Bios update,perhaps?

Why can't they make laptops with replaceable graphics cards?
Danjw91
I had this laptop. Was very good, but it struggles and takes a while to load up and latest games that started from end of 2014 to now started to run only at medium and 35fps so if you want this for latest games then avoid.

I've been looking at the laptop deals on here, and for the specs this seems like a fantastic deal. Why doesn't it have more heat? I haven't seen a decent build i5 laptop with SSD and an extra HD anywhere for near £400.

I don't know much about laptops so is there something I'm missing? I would like to get it, but want to make sure there's not some glaring drawback first. Your input would be appreciated :)

anyone know how easy it is to upgrade the ssd? Mine currently has only 10gb free now and i need to upgrade, anyone know a way I can upgrade whilst also keeping my data, OS etc?
Easy.
Samsung comes with its own transfer software. Crucial comes with a serial no for Acronis True Image.
I have used both software. They are not difficult.One thing you have to be sure is that you can connect you old disk and the new SSD to your PC/laptop at the same time.
For PC, you will need a spare Sata port, SATA cable and power cable.
For laptop, buy a 2.5 inch hard drive enclouse for £5 will get you sorted, preferred to be USB 3.0. But this is only one off use, so even USB 2.0 will be fine if you only need to use once.
I've seen a Sandisk ssd which I would like to fit on to this hp laptop. So if I just buy a hd enclosure am I all good to go?
Thanks

Sandisk should come with software too.

I had a Sandisk Plus 120GB which I absolutely hated from the first day. Returned it on the same day. Bloody so slow.

Pretty simple and straight forward. You need to mount your new SSD as a second drive (preferrably by inserting it in place of the DVD drive). Alternatively mount it on USB3.
Then get "Macrium Reflect Free" edition and install it and follow the instructions to "clone" your existing disk. Then physically install your new SSD.
If you are near Maidstone, Kent, I can help.

Instead of removing the DVD drive I'm looking to keep the drive and install a larger ssd. Is it still an easy process?

Thanks for your help so far

My old laptop is a Lenovo N300 I think and it hasn't been great - battery went on it (a known fault apparently) and it slowed right down for no apparent reason! Build quality was ok though other than that and I quite like the keyboard on it.
I purchased a £1,000 SONY one a few years ago and just about everything that could fail on it, did!
Never used those all-in-one myself. I did have a friend telling me that they are slow.
It's not an all-in-one? It's a normal laptop, not a tablet hybrid.

If you google, you will see Lenovo N300 is a all-in-one android desktop.

Lenovo 3000 n100 or 3000 n200 are laptops.

cannot see n300 as a laptop
