Unrelated but for those who are interested in a laptop similar to this but not this one in particular...
I got the Lenovo 710s a few months ago after someone recommended it on a thread I posted it.
That sounds like a great machine too, do you have a link for it? Thx

Here you go:

Lenovo 710s

As I said I got the i5 version which is identical to the i7 one (£100 more) other than the processor, and even then I believe the only difference is the clock speed.

A combination of discount code and cashback got it down to £500 including warranty for me - just found the code on Google.

not a bad price, i believe their B Grade products only get 90day warranty though
They should have a 3 year warranty with Intel though.
Good price CPU for someone building a budget PC imo.
It says ignore any references to warranty in red.

AFAIK all retail Intel CPUs have a 3 year warranty with the manufacturer. I don't see why a b-grade product wouldn't continue to have a manufacturer's warranty.

I think the 90 day warranty is with Overclockers.


​You may be right but I've not seen a faulty cpu for years (maybe 15) and I sell pc's all the time..i buy second hand CPU's all the time as well to save just 10 or 15%.. Obviously you might get a dud but it's highly unlikely.
Expired?
Probably for the best as I might have been tempted with an unnecessary upgrade from my i3

If Intel would be willing to honour the warranty it would be from the original purchase date (or even manufacture date), seeing as the 4460 launched 30 months ago, I wouldn't bank on getting a long warranty from Intel. However, this would be covered by the consumer rights act, so you should have at least a 6 month warranty from Overclockers, although getting Overclockers to honour their legal obligations can be quite an arduous experience.

I wouldn't really worry about buying used CPUs though, used CPUs are generally quite a safe buy as they're relatively durable (as long as they haven't been misfitted or too heavily abused). It's a good price, I don't know why this is so cold.

Surprised MSI stuck their name on this load of crap, had it been a i3 6100 and 750 Ti or a 950 or 960 at the min, it may have been worth £300'ish.
if the processor isn't what I read them just ignore this, clearly not worth it. cheers
refurbished i3 on ebay around 120. add low profile gtx 750ti 75 quid. beats this.

could get cheaper pc with quad core for 60 to 80 quid. need to get low profile gtx 750ti for small form factor pcs. they are 100 new but ebay has some 75.

so 200 quid will beat this!

It is, yeah. If you cut the memory in half to 8gb, you can get a similarly specced box from gearbest for £27.92 as well.http://www.gearbest.com/tv-box-mini-pc/pp_390234.html
And let's face it, you're never really going to fill up the on-board memory on these anyway unless you download a ton of apps and games.

A cracking CPU for 1920x1080 resolution gaming when paired with a decent GPU, I've not had any issues in 4 years of using one 8)

Yes but it's a dead socket. Just go I3, cooler chip, more modern chipset, plenty of upgrade options etc
​If you already have an FX compatible board it's a no brainer to get this over a slower chip while we wait for Zen so there's no extra expense involved on motherboard and Intel CPU that would cost about twice as much as this CPU 8)

Ive currently got a 1100t black edition CPU with 8gb ram and wanting to upgrade am I better to wait for Zen or go Intel. Would upgrading ram to 16gb make a difference? cheers


​Hmmm, I splashed out on a 16GB kit and even with the most modern games I don't use half of it so I'd save the cash for Zen personally, I doubt that CPU is holding you back too much, those real 6 cores are no slouch 8)

They will credit it. I bought a Lenovo Y50 when Lenovo had the cashback offer on over a year ago and it was also on sale at Very with the additional offers of 100 credit and the new customer discount. I used all offers and just hoped for the best. Got all of them and ended up with an i7 gaming laptop for under 500 quid.
Had zero problems with very and bought various other products since.
What's wrong with very?
" This offer can’t be used in conjunction with other offers." Probably won't credit the money as it is on sale.
my general rule of thumb is never buy anything from Very. They are the worst! just sayin
£635 for the unit and the cover is a great price. I just paid £663 for that but Microsoft threw in a pair of Master & Dynamic earphones as well so i guess there's no point looking to change.

Anyone else get one and if so, you having regular blue screen crashes?
Update - correct one now (after having had to chase the postman for it). Have done a full scan with malwarebytes having heard the previous horror stories with Lenovo plus superfish and a couple of other nasties - all clean it seems!

One thing I'm not keen on is it seems like changing the battery is a major operation involving dismantling and not sure if even allowed under warranty :/ Quite stylish however (for a white silver laptop at least)

Anyway, looking forward to being able to finally play Max Payne 3 :)
Now out of stock - I REALLY hope they've sent me the correct one this time (should find out tomorrow)

Well it arrived....I say it arrived, it didn't. Instead they sent a 14inch 1i3!!!!! Fail!

This type of mistake seems happen way too often with Very.

If I remember correctly, during Christmas, there was a laptop deal from Very, a lot of people were sent different laptops other than what they bought.

Starting to regret not jumping on this myself now.
I, too, was in the "2500K is fine" brigade, but now after getting a GTX 1080 and playing BF1 I've realised it's causing a huge system bottleneck.
Even at 4.4 Ghz I'm looking at 98%+ CPU usage on all four cores with the 1080 just chilling. I should be getting 90+ fps on ultra @ 1440 but I'm going down below the 60's in the built up areas/around explosions, etc.
September may end up being an expensive month for me!
The vast majority of games still don't scale well beyond 4 threads, but the few ones that do, i7 will make a massive difference if you're CPU bottlenecked, yes.

I only use it to browse, but am very impatient so it needs to be quick. My current laptop is great, really fast and can run loads of tabs in separate browsers, while I'm watching something etc, but something is wrong with the power socket (repair shop struggling!) and it gives me an excuse for a new one :p. I've not had a large screen before, so not sure if it will bother me. I have had Acer but not Lenovo. The Lenovo one is heavier and has potentially a different graphics card. Most other stats seem similar apart from the 8gb RAM, one being DDR3L and the other DDR4. Any suggestions would help me weigh up what to do and thanks in advance.

"802.11ac Wi-Fi" .. I take it this Laptop is not backward compatible with Wi-Fi Routers that only support 802.11a/b/c/g/n then?, or .....

Of course it is! Think about it for a milisecond, how many 802.11ac routers are there? Not that many, how many 802.11g/n routers are there, absolutely loads. Regardless of that 100% it's compatible.


​what about going through a cashback site? will that impact the deal?
Zontes
Not sure I trust the £100 cashback. There is nothing at the checkout stage to confirm the cashback has been applied. I am a new customer so also qualify for 10% off, and Quidco 2%. So with all discounts applied it would be a really good deal. But not willing to take the risk. Thanks anyway OP.


Can't use it with other offers (it's in the T&Cs) so it won't stack

Nice find if cashback is honoured otherwise price is too high for the spec of this laptop, although IMO with a screen as big as this it really needs to be full HD so you can fully utilise the space. I remember the last time I tried Very's cashback they declined it due to me trying to use a 10% off code in conjunction with the offer, so be warned if you are thinking of doing this.

Now that's a bargain, even if you cash in that crap CPU and then just keep the SSD and the game.
What's so bad about it? Aren't AMD the best bang for buck?

But Piledriver is 4 years old now.
You think AMD are bad look at how little Intel have managed (with the cash spent) the i5 2500k to i5 6600k. 5 years! :)
The problem is Intel have no real reason to push out big jumps. Sandybridge was so much of a jump that, AMD have floundered since.
Intel probably have a Sledgehammer in the wings if AMD finally get their act together. In the mean time Intel will have been enjoying increased profit percentages flogging an old but competitive horse.
I miss my Athlon 3200XP so I hope they do pull a cracker soon.

You think AMD are bad look at how little Intel have managed (with the cash spent) the i5 2500k to i5 6600k. 5 years! :)
I know AMD are bad, because they still don't have a CPU that is up to the task of challenging a 5 and a half year old Intel one in games like this. It is as tragic as it is comedic.
i5 6600k beats up the 2500k across the board by some distance. http://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/288?vs=1544 The difference is this game is more GPU bound beyond a certain level of performance.
I'll give you from as far back as Sandy Bridge there had been a jump but from Haswell to now has been pretty poor from an IPC point of view.
But on a plus point AMD sold more processor cores than Intel and more GPU cores than Nvidia last year!
AMD marketing guys just never grab the headlines! X)
The strangest thing is you're basically criticising Intel for not pushing the envelope when it's up to AMD to actually make them do so, which they have proven entirely incapable of doing since about 2006 when the Core 2 line launched. Intel have the best parts, the fastest parts and their incremental improvements are perfectly acceptable if you can't buy better. You can't.
I know AMD sold plenty of low profit margin parts while not making much profit after years of losses, which is logical. Can't say the shareholders are too excited about that though.
Yes I am criticising Intel for not pushing the envelope. No great things came from 'just doing enough '. I understand why they have not done it when nobody is pushing them to do so.
I do hope Zen is as good as AMDs preview (not too good mind I just sold my shares last week! X) ). While it won't push Intel as they have plenty of IPC advantage and I expect clock speed to be better due to a more mature production process. But what it will (hopefully) do is force Intel to improve pricing as i5's have snook back upto £180 price point. I can't see any reason why AMD won't under cut the i5 with a 4 core and 8 thread part and offer 8 cores and 16 threads for the price of an i7. But looking at the Zen design it looks like the minimum you will be getting is 4 cores.

If Intel had pushed the envelope AMD's CPU business would probably be dead and buried by now. They had the money and technology to bury AMD at all performance levels the past 5 years. They pushed the envelope with their process technology and focused on performance per watt which is much more important than just producing the fastest chip you can, as AMD have desperately done with the likes of the 9590.

Zen needs to be very good but I never thought Intel's chips were that expensive in the first place. If you are patient and know where to look. I paid £240 for a new retail i7 6700k only a few months ago. You can partially blame Brexit for the prices of many electronics rising again. But besides this as the 2500K shows, spending a bit more is money well spent, when a platform and quality CPU remain relevant for half a decade.

People blow plenty more than I did on the i7 on video cards that are considered slow within 2 years. I have a GTX1070 that cost over £400 but I doubt it will be worth more than £200 24 months from now.

AMD's slacking caused much of that GPU headline price as well! If they had their act together then market forces would mean lower prices.

It's like complaining about the best team in the league winning the title 3 years in a row, surely it's their competitor's fault for not stepping up. Much else seems illogical!

Was going to say that a 3M/6T FX6300 might be pushing it for this game, but the CPU benchmarks aren't that bad (at least FX6350 and since this is unlocked a small overclock to that speed should be easy)http://www.techspot.com/articles-info/1235/bench/CPU_01.png

Certainly seems to up there with Haswell i3s
5 and a half year old i5 2500k beating up an FX 9590 and even today still very nice for gaming on.

I wouldn't buy a barebones laptop, and definitely not with desktop components.
- Battery life is going to be close to Zero (if you press the ? it says " The realistic average run-time is 1.5 to 3 hours").
- Cooling is poor as desktop components needs more cooling.
- Barebones laptops are massive (height 35.7mm, 3.4Kg)
- Warranty repairs are not ideal as sometimes seller tell you to contact brand directly.

But that's my personal opinion

incorrect link or price as the link is for one with i5-6400 in , also the i5-6600k isnt 50% faster than an i7-6700hq even if you based it on single thread performance which its about 25% better than the smt aspect of the i7 helps on multi threaded apps to consider them of similar all round performance
​The link isn't incorrect. I was just making a statement. The i5 is about 30-50% better in every benchmark I have seen.
Where are you getting your benchmarks, I'm looking at notebookcheck.net right now since they do fairly comprehensive testing and maintain comparisons.
The TL;DR? i5 6600k gets 7413 in 3dmark06 CPU test, i7-6700hq gets 7083.5. (95% of performance)
Cinebench R15 single core, 6500k gets 166 to the 6700hq's 144 (86% of performance)
Cinebench R15 multi core, 6500k gets 601.5 vs the 6700hq's 676 (112% of performance)
Combine that with a 6700hq having better battery life and lower heat output, I'd choose it every time.
http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-6700HQ-vs-Intel-Core-i5-6600K/m34954vs3503
TBH I based it on these benchmarks. Couldn't find anymore lol.
Both CPU's seem like they perform better in different benchmarks and I would love to see a video comparing them in gaming performance.
Well, rule of thumb is the CPU is not the bottleneck for gaming. Plus this laptop is a kilo heavier than its mobile brethren, more expensive, and a centimeter thicker.
Don't get me wrong, I love that Clevo make chassis that can take a desktop processor. Then I took a good look at portability and realised that if it's above 2kg it's effectively pretty close to a desktop (i.e. wouldn't carry it around, if traveling with it I'd take extra care, get a shipping company or huge luggage on a train etc).
So instead of buying this style of laptop to replace my P370EM (dual GTX 680Ms, i7 3740qm) I just built a workstation. Dual sandybridge xeons (16 cores @ 3GHz + hyperthreading) and a GTX 970 for a similar price (about 1k) but so much more CPU power than a desktop laptop.
Depends on your usecase tbh. If you need a laptop so you can for example go round a friends house easily with it or something like that then I would say going for a desktop processor is not a bad idea.
In that case what you need is a *portable* laptop, not a 3.5kg laptop with a 0.9kg power brick.
Let me tell you my story. It's the start of university, I get a tonne of money and decide I want to replace my aging desktop (2007 C2D in 2012). I thought I'd be moving all the time, going back to my parents home on weekends, visiting friends and bringing along a computer. That meant I wanted a laptop (because laptops => portable, right?) and I wanted it fitted with the best GPUs because why the heck not. So I got a Clevo P370EM for £2k. The GPUs were £700 each so that's where the money went.
I should have loved it but instead I hated it, not for the build quality, simply because it was noisy and heavy. You could always hear the high pitched whine of the fans, it was constant, no way the 300W going in was going to leave without loud fans. It was incredibly irritating. That power brick brings me onto the weight, 5.8kg for the laptop and brick. I lived a 30 minute walk from university and over a 4 year course I brought in my laptop twice. Each time I nearly injured myself doing it, messenger bags put weight in bad spots on your body, mostly the collar bone.
I still needed something for day to day university but I wanted power, so I spent another £1k on an 11.6" Clevo W110ER with a 35W ivybridge quad core and a GT 650M. Not the beefiest laptop in the world but it weighed just 1.8kg and had a 200g brick. It got 6 hours battery life compared to the 2 of the bigger laptop. It at the time ran every game I threw at it though some required medium settings. It actually fit in my bag and it didn't kill me to carry it. I would even have been happy using it as a desktop replacement if it could actually drive my main monitor (Intel's HD 4000 wasn't quite HDMI 1.4 compatible, more like 1.2 due to a low clock speed, so couldn't hit 2560x1440 or anything above 1920x1200).
I spent the next 4 years regretting buying the big laptop. Why oh why didn't I just buy a desktop, moving flat with one would be fine, after all the laptop got nearly as big as one with all the padding it required. I watched its market value plummet because who wants laptop GPUs. I heard it whine away for years. It limited the number of monitors and connected devices I could have. The whine was so irritating that instead of running it at full load for video encoding I bought a separate cheap desktop (i5 3470 iirc) to run those tasks because with the stock intel cooler it was *so* quiet.
TL;DR Muffinss, take it from someone who regretted buying a big laptop for every year of its existence. Do not buy one. They are the worst thing ever because they're not a high performance laptop. They lose the right to be called a laptop when they weigh more than 2.5kg. Instead they're just rubbish overpriced desktops, brother only to Alienware. Get a 13 or 15" with a 960M or better. They exist, they're cheap and you won't regret them.
Things aren't like that anymore, you can get 1000 series nvidia gpus in thin laptops now. I had a 980M 17 inch before and that thing was easy to take around everywhere with me.

Not everyone has a 30 min walk to and from uni.

Strange that the power adapter drop-down gives you the option of a 330W power brick - but only with a GTX 980M, which isn't actually an option with this model!

Headline price is somewhat disingenuous at £1128 because the standard drive is only a 500GB 5400RPM spinner and RAM is only 4GB. If you are spending over a grand on a high-spec laptop capable of some decent gaming you are going to want more than those defaults. Charging extra for a dead pixel guarantee and better quality thermal paste is cheeky as well.
Meh 8gb ram and a biwin 480gb ssd adds like £100.
You dont go for those 2 extras then! :D
I think the power brick thing is really weird like wat lol

That's obviously not true is it.

I had 2 of these for my kids, as soon as the system updated it loaded more memory sapping rubbish and left no room for anything, an SD card is not a fix as the pre installed apps cannot be moved to it. Ended up taking them back to currys as not fit for purpose and changed for the 16gb versions

I wouldn't buy it. Very is not a reputable retailer, the Tab 4 is a the bargain basement offering from Samsung, the display is poor, the upgrade to Android 5.1.1 is still pending (while for example the comparable Z3 from Sony is long on Android 6.0), and most of all: it does not run Pokemon Go because of the Intel CPU.

Yes, it is cheap for a new tablet, but not cheap enough.

Also AIO watercoolers are better for mATX/mITX system since they move the hot air straight out of the case instead of circulating it around the rest of your system.

the thin piece of cat5e will win for speed, but if its thin its probably flat, and if its flat, its probably not twisted, and if its not twisted, you might experience slow performance due to interference, especially in long runs.
I can't tell if that was meant to be funny.

it runs really well, nice and snappy at browsing, office, you tube etc... build seems really good quality, keyboard is nice to use

only minor nag, and it might be just me, but the mouse is not that nice compared to others i have used, seems u need to really hit the sweet spot for right click and the mouse itself seems a little over responsive even with the mouse settings adjusted

all that said, for £370 I am well happy, thanks again to the OP for a great deal
there was around 100GB
now down to 499, this is the funniest thing i have seen, 3 prices in one day

I have this laptop, i think its awesome. I dont do any gaming, just web browsing, and photo editing, and its perfect. Really fast, from boot up to being in your web browser in an instant. Battery has been good for me too, i dont use it all the time, maybe around 10 hours or so, and i charge it one or two times a week

Out of interest, before you put any of your own files onto the laptop, how much available space was there with just windows 10 installed ?

I paid $179.99 a couple of days ago which is roughly £135 from AliExpress, yes it's been around £120 around Brexit when the £ was all over the place.
if any repair, you need to send all the way to China...which will cost more than 50 pounds..
I tried in the website ibuygoyou.com which is in spain. same price 189 pounds with 2 years warannty
But if any repair, we need to send the phone to spain which will cost 50 pounds through DHL..
hence buying in UK and waranty in UK
I might be wrong, but this is not a UK phone, Xiaomi don't have any UK repair centers, Do you think you'll have a year warranty from a random eBay seller to repair a phone? Surely you/they would still have to send it back to China for repair.
This isn't a UK model phone, this seller has probably just bought bulk from the same place as most of us but is hoping to flog them for £70 more in the hope people think they're a UK phone, yes delivery may be within a few days compared to that of 10-14 days people are saying from AliExpress, but is it really worth it? He mentions nothing about warranty from what I can see on his listing but my guess (and I may be wrong) is that you still need to return it to China.

There is a warranty for 2 years from square trade where you no need to post from your pocket to chine or EU. Everything square trade will take care
2 yr warranty £45.99 from SquareTrade.

also if you dont buy 2 years warantty from uk seller, still you have 1 year warantty where you will post only to UK seller(you no need to post to china) , it means your charges are less..it doesnt matter they will send to china or get it repair in UK under waranty......

suggest me the best place to buy apart from china, am focussed on waranty as currently my redmi note 2 has severe battery drain problems.
If all you want is quick UK delivery and some type of UK warranty, there are cheaper sellers on ebay

I use my phone for Facebook, Internet and the camera. I'm not interested in gaming, so I'd prefer a good camera over processing power.

Well, you didn't say anything about Android, so I'm going to suggest the Windows-based Microsoft Lumia 950 / 950 XL like smg1984 did before, but to which you didn't reply.

With TCB cashback, they work out to around £207 & £276 respectively.

Anyway, from what I hear, both have excellent cameras (the same one really).

I'm tempted with the 950, as it's relatively cheap, I've never owned a Windows phone before or one with such a good camera, & they also come with a free Display Dock at present.

Got this since 2015. Performs well. keeps my cpu at 24-30c idle and under load I hit about 38-44c
how do you get 38-44??not even the coolest intel cpu at stock speeds would do that unless you play inside the freezer
I wasn't clear with what I meant under load, I don't do any major 3D rendering, I use Adobe suite and video rendering puts my CPU at whatever load it does, I should have left that out lol.
I got you ,lol. But even under light load I am sure you should get peaks around 55c at a normal room temperature 22/24c. You see, I test a lot, got the h110,h100 now the h105(not used yet). In my experience there might be good air cooler even slightly better than the very best water cooler. Water cooler is a piece of mind anyway, no need to think twice. I think that what also could make a difference could be an extremely good paste, that is very important., the problem is, which one?? they are very expensive to take a risk for only testing. I use a simple but good arctic m4 .
Do not consider what I say, must be me that likes the extreme,lol

Might be a good idea to wait for Corsair to bring out these coolers with their new magnetic levitating fans
would not contribute to be any better by a single degree celsius, only a better quality expensive fan

Obviously those are going to cost a lot and these won't be much below this price.

So tempted to replace my Dark Rock 3 with one of these, just so my RAM isn't being touched by the cooler.

I got excited when i saw the prices of the 6500K and then realised it didn't include tax and shipping and got sad
The title should say £156.62 - cost including shipment. Then will come the tax bill...
I'd rather buy it from Amazon for £188.52 - with free shipment, UK warranty, returns etc.

A few things you've forgotten to mention in the price. Shipping costs and import tax! http://i64.tinypic.com/wl5374.png
So no, it don't save, time you get it from a UK company! Some place like SCAN or Ebuyer, and you'll get it within the next few days and be able to deal with a UK company!
Fair enough, I didn't think about import taxes and customs. I'll remove the deal now.

Wanted to get one of these but missed out on the scan offer unfortunately, however, got a question.. I want to use it to record a security camera (using YawCam) and separate stereo audio. I imagine it should have enough grunt to do simple motion detection and recording in Windows 7 but what about the audio. The mic input cannot be used at the same time as the headphones but will it record stereo (line-in) or is it only mono?

One other thing.. if I wanted to dual boot between Windows and Linux would this be possible?

Needed to disable secure boot and the windows 8 logo stuff, and possibly fast boot too. Dunno, I disabled all 3 and it worked! Of course now my USB2 devices don't work during install so I need to make a USB3 boot device. Bah!

Secure boot and Windows 8 logo thing you need to disable. I had a load of trouble installing Windows 7, just wanted to upgrade to Windows 10. Windows 7 doesn't support skylake USB 3 ports or something, my USB 1/2 standard keyboard and mouse wouldn't work. After much messing about the solution was to use a Asrock utility that injects USB 3 drivers into the Windows Install, http://www.asrock.com/microsite/win7install/ the Intel one kept crashing on me, but this Asrock (Win 7 USB Patcher) one works.


​well actually you could have just installed win 10 and use your Win 7 key

rather go second hand get a lot more for your money saw one on Facebook earlier i5 4460, gtx 960 8gb ram, 1tb hard drive, bluray drive, Windows 10. case good to go £150

What? On facebook?... That's a new one.


​Facebook for sale groups or Gumtree people can't sell second hand stuff for good money always a bargain to be had if you are considering end of life like this cpu
fx8320 is pretty weak for emulation and some older games but for anything that uses all the cores it's good. A lot of modern games are using 4 cores now so it works a lot better. Saying that it's too late in the day for this CPU but price per performance will be difficult to beat.
MaxRazor
Amd fx 8320 are good cpu's 8 core CPUs kill all the i3 and alot of the lower end i7 cpu's when it comes to video editing and will play all games without an issue, and you can overclock it with the cooler and price is reasonable for new build so heat from me ;)
For video editing using the right software the FX8xxx does very well from all the benchmarks I have seen but for games there performance seems 'variable', some games do well but others that need strong cores they really suffer, unfortunately most recent games have been the latter. For general home use and gaming the i3 6100 is a clear winner so it depends what you will be using the PC for.

Good but I find it hard to think a FX CPU is a good buy, just too weak compared to even a i3 6100 and using a motherboard and RAM with no future upgrade possabilities
