Great keyboards and build quality I love my Thinkpads, but they are almost two business replacement cycles old, I'm amazed that something with HD4000 graphics can sell for £200 and I have seen in similar deal threads people say the battery doesn't matter, they just want a unit for the office/student's desk but, that being so, why not buy a 'refurbished' old Dell Optiplex base unit with monitor. If comes with a Sandybridge CPU with HD3000 graphics or an Ivybridge CPU with HD4000 integrated graphics, depending on the power supply there is a fairly good chance you can fit a graphics card, better cope with HD video, games, 4K video playback and encoding, etc. and still have change from that £200. I mean, what's the attraction, here, I love my Thinkpads aesthetically and my old iMac but they are just eye candy, now. I am not unimpressed by the resale value, just very surprised.

Wow, an ancient laptop from 2012 with an old ivybridge CPU (with HD 4000 graphics) has a resell of £199, just from putting a 128Gb SSD and Windows 10 in it? I figured I would be lucky to sell mine for £50. Does it come with a brand new battery, or a five year old ‘refurbished’ battery?

£50?

Sold.

Your IvyBridge ThinkPad or EliteBook, or some cheap plastic consumer machine? Because there is a huge difference between business-class and consumer cheap plastic.

How? I want to bulid a PC with 1050ti and its £800 right now!!!!
Thanks for linking the other thread, have gone and purchased this one, as it ticks all the boxes and hopefully will last until my son is able to upgrade the parts himself. http://www.hotukdeals.com/visit?t=2733370&hukdm=353&d=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hotukdeals.com%2Fvisit%2Fcomment%2F31377383%2F13448015

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/kHbrjcCosts only a little bit less but there is a better upgrade path with the 600w Pau and the b350 motherboard. Win 10 was from Amazon

Looks good for same money, I would have considered that build, unfortunately I didn't look at Ryzen comparisons and didn't spot some of the bargain components you found there so i went for the easy option with no experience in building a PC and being a bit too lazy to learn.

Usually I would just say build your own PC or go with a PC specialist. But you can't go wrong for £750. Even if building your self using similar parts you wouldn't be saving much. https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/h4Dr8K

But then on the other hand the PSU inside this doesn't look great and I do question if you can replace it or not. If not then putting a more powerful card inside this like a 1080 is a big fat no. But if the PSU is replaceable then you should be able to but will obviously cost more due to having to buy a better PSU.

Have one of these, when they launched. Rock solid after 5 years putting heavy use. I could play almost everything on the Medium-High settings depending on the game. Great option as well for people that looks to edit movies and work with post production.

I'd want a minimum of a 1050 Ti, or at least wait for more laptops with a proper Max-Q design.

Is the 1050 better than the 980m?


Not really. Benchmarks give the 980m the lead in many areas.

Mine turned up today, nice machine to be fair, hopefully it'll give me good service.
worth the money is the screen ok ?
Nothing startling, it is decent enough but not the jump I was expecting from my 8 year old Compaq. Otherwise the build is lovely, other than the 'loose' trackpad, the chassis is lovely and is like a bigger version of my HTC M9. I didn't set the McAfee up and loaded Avast instead, all seems nice and quick so far.

think ill pass then seen a cheaper HP 255 G5 that does just the same for a basic laptop

It's because you have a lot of crude on your machine. You need to clean your machine like once a month.


I've not known that sort of content to slow down startup, but cleaning your machine regularly is certainly recommended is such instances ;)

I have used this laptop for 6 months. Yes, HDD is very slow and needs a SSD to speed up load times on boot up and games. Runs games at 1080p if you make a little sacrifice in settings. Screen is very vibrant and colours pop out at you. However, blacks look grey and washed out no matter how you tweak settings. Fan noise is inconsistent, keeps speeding up and slowing down cyclically at idle loads. Overall, it's pretty decent at this price.

Ok so I missed out on the HP omen the other day from john lewis
I ordered the original £630 deal from John Lewis but it was rejected by the click and collect+ newsagent on Monday 17th and returned to John Lewis on Thursday 20th, they claimed they could not send back out to me until it was checked and put back to stock, nor could it be reserved for me when it was checked. In all honesty their customer service was rubbish and I ended up being refunded on the Friday so there may well be 1 coming back in to stock at some time, i was watching over the weekend and it remained OOS so i bought a different Omen (the one i have posted on here as a deal)

Actually it came back in stock on Wednesday or at least thats when I checked again before taking the plunge on either one. It arrived on Friday and my wife seems pretty pleased with it. Personally it really needs SSD but will be getting one for it shortly. I have bought from JL a few times and been great even with returns but as with any company they will have good and bad. Anyways the Omen only won just with reviews on battery life that tipped me over.

Im holding off upgrading until this 'mining faze' has passed - GPU costs are crazy currently, that being said this is a nice spec for the money but I think if your looking to drop £600+ I would ideally want a 1050 or better as performance improvement and with it future proofing (ps pro and xbox one x will raise the min spec a fair bit going forward) is significant, not that you couldnt play games perfectly well on this system (ignore the elite Pc gamers who disregard anything that cant run every game on ultra settings at 4K and 60fps - you can game perfectly well at 1080p high or medium and even as low at 30fps game type dependent.- honestly 'hairworks and all that other crazy GPU heavy stuff very rarely adds much to the gaming experience.

I bought this back in Feb for about £600 from ebuyer...
I have since added a 240gb m. 2 SSD, and replaced the cd drive with a HDD caddy, where I installed a 2tb SSHD
Brilliant laptop... Sure it's got nothing on my £4k custom pc setup I built for home use, but for a total cost of £900 (after the SSHD and M.2 SSD) I can't knock it.. It does everything I want in a portable gaming laptop
4k on a custom setup!?
That's a stupid amount of money for a pc, or does that include all the peripherals , TV etc.
Yeah, thats the full setup inclusive of a peripherals such as my ROG Swift monitor (PC includes 6700k, 1070, 32gb of RAM, 10tb of storage space etc etc)

Was expecting sli 1080ti for that much lol.

Tom, this is only my experience, but I have now purchased two items from eGlobal (an LG G6 phone and a Canon g9x ii).
Both were delivered inside a week - one by DPD, the other by DHL. Totally happy with each one. OK, if I run into problems ahead, I might have issues, but there are no 'known' issues with either the phone or the camera. Phone was almost half the typical UK price, and the camera was 25% cheaper than the lowest UK price.
Also a part of me is telling me to go for it as if I pay with PayPal I'd likely be able to get my money back

From the look of it, it seems that it's either a hit or a miss with the company. Alot of people say it's a great company and get their stuff but also alot of people say that they didn't get their stuff
I can't believe anybody votes deals hot from this retailer with all the negativity around them. You've got to be crazy to spend large amounts of money with them.
Spending this kind of money with this company is a hell of a risk.

Is it possible to upgrade the SSD storage on this laptop? Any info will be greatly appreciated
So is the SSD upgradable? And to what size? And how much RAM will it accept? I'm a complete novice when it comes to taking apart and upgrading laptops. Is this one I should steer clear of? The price does seem decent.

Don't understand why these laptops only have 128gb ssd, i understand cloud storage but think you need at least 256
Depends what you want it for. It would be adequate for me as I have other PCs for games and network storage for media.

Yeah, after 12 months of Windows Update you will probably have 30+ GB of .msi and .msp files clogging up your drive.

There is no guaranteed safe way of removing them and MS does not offer a way to shift them to a second drive etc.

I bought this a couple of weeks ago, for same price from same place.
It is an excellent laptop, good build quality, great screen, good sound, nice and light and very fast.
I wanted to add a 1tb 2.5" I had spare as was worried about it only having 128gb SSD.
It was not easy to open and unfortunately the SSD is located right where you'd need to put the 2.5" so I'm buying a hdd case.
There is a spare ram slot inside.
Battery life is very good too.
Hope this helps :D
Hi mate,

Probably gonna buy this, what type of Ssd is inside it as I'm gonna upgrade it? Pci-e, 2.5'' etc? How do you open it up? Thanks

I purchased a high end gaming laptop last year. It doesn't compare to a tower pc of the same spec though. Gets hot and noisy with the fans when you push it too hard and it will barely run an oculus rift that a supposedly lower spec graphics card in my pc runs fine.

Thats because laptop components are not the same.

Even the GPU's that are the same card are undervolted and underclocked.

The cooling is also a big factor and on something compact like a laptop it is normally a lot worse and with poor cooling you will experience high noise and throttling.
A lot of people suggest issues with medion and they always seem suspiciously cheap which puts me off them.

Spec wise it seems great value.

The other two slots are under the keyboard. There is a hole that is used to push the keyboard out using a screwdriver or similar. The laptop also and extra M.2 SSD port and an extra 2.5" drive bay for a thin SSD or Hard drive. This is just a Clevo chassis branded by medion and is a very good machine for the money.

Thanks for the heads up...I wanted to throw in another SSD and now I know where to look. Been living with it a few days and I'm very happy with the performance so far.
bagginsboy
Just got mine and I can confirm that its a TN panel but a good quality one with very good viewing angles and the colours are really nice. Build quality is nice, it has a soft touch surface which is a finger print magnet. The keyboard is really good and looks the business with the full RGB backlighting. Anyone wondering about the specs, well the one I have has 3 USB 3 ports 2 USB-C ports and a display port on the side. On the rear it has 1 HDMI and 1 display port next to the power connector. Thought this may help as on the Argos website there is no mention of USB-C and the USB-3 ports are listed as USB 2 although they may have sent me the wrong item knowing them, but I'm not complaining.
Also if you are going to upgrade the ram it might be handy to note that there are 3 hidden screws under neath rubber tabs with little arrows on them in addition to the ones you can see visibly. The tabs are a pain in the backside to remove but once out the back panel comes off freely but its about 17 screws in total.
I called Medion customer support and they were not aware of this but did say that opening to upgrade ram will not void anything. Also there are 4 dim slots listed but I could only see 2 free when i opened it up so the other one may be on the underside of the motherboard but i'm not brave enough to dig that out.
Hope this helps.

Says IPS screen on the medion website, so this is perfect. It's either this or a Alienware 13 1060 which I'm waiting for one to come in stock in the factory outlet. Hmmm?

using alienware 13 at moment and I couldn't recommend it more! I have the fully spec'd one with oled and 1060 6gb, if you have the money for it I would go for it but a tip for you. once you see that on outlet, don't bother with cashback and all that. Talk to dell customer services and ask for discount on it and they will drop a good 10-20% off. I got 250 quid off mine just by being a bit cheeky on the chat. Got nothing to lose.


Hey mate how did you get though to dell customer services? I tried though their live sales chat and they only deal with new machines not outlet and can't find a link to just normal customer service?

Thanks for your suggestion but i3 rather than i5, slower and older processor (6th rather than the latest 7th series), half the RAM and no 2nd year guarantee does not seem worth paying £70 less for? Or am I missing something?

Can anyone get a cheaper laptop with this spec and not a lesser core. Or even better get a better laptop for this price with going down on any spec. I could not find anything better compare to this one, did I miss a deal somewhere?

The deal is okay if you wanted a new build with no recycled parts. Personally I would probably change the spec and do my own build. The shortage of graphics cards at present is stopping me. I may buy an i5 system from a friend of mine for 200-300 quid or so. Undecided. If I go for a new system I will recycle my SSD, hard drive operating system and some other parts to save costs. Then go for a Ryzen 1600 with saved cash on GPU.

500 watt is okay but it's the quality of the PSU that can be more important. Voltages going the various rails can be more important. Still see no point in IGU on i5 if you are buying a decent graphics card. It's Intels IPC that gives it the advantage over Ryzen. If the only graphics were from the CPU then you might see Intel do better in certain areas. That and lack of driver support for a new architecture such as Ryzen. Intel has really dragged it's feet in terms of CPU lately. How many more 14nm iterations can they do??

120gb SSD is not huge. Maybe if just for windows it could be useful. SSD don't like continual saving of data. They are known for bad sectors. Albeit they do speed up windows load times. I have one on my old pc and it's mainly for windows. 240gb or so.
gummby
Looking at Amazon they may be below £200 but they are all showing out of stock with 2-5 week lead times.(Mining digitial currency causing all mid range card to be out of stock.) I prefer 6gb memory on graphics. Long term thinking.Note also there is no indication of what power supply this box has. With a 1060 you would be drawing 400 power in total. Probably 90 less with it's current GPU. Could this machine handle a 1060 card? What power supply does it have. Bet it's not a branded one.


500W, might not be branded but enough to easily run any 1060. A 380 is a very powerful card in itself and needs a lot more power than most modern nvidia cards to run, so I'd be VERY surprised if it couldn't handle it. (ref https://support.hp.com/lamerica_nsc_carib-en/product/OMEN-by-HP-870-000-Desktop-PC-series/11084748/model/14040037/document/c05316319/ )

gummby
You are paying for intel on core graphics here which in a gaming machine would have little use.


You're paying for a decent clocked i5 processor which can handle all games at at least low quality. Sure the onboard graphics adds value, but lets not take away the fact it is still competing well with these Ryzen processors, and better with games which haven't been optimised for Ryzen (which is most sub-2016 games).

gummby
I don't get the small SSD drive here. Also the memory here will be nothing special.


The small SSD makes a massive difference in booting up Windows and opening basic applications like Google Chrome, Word etc. It makes it a really good all round machine, and is really needed in a modern day computer. It's 2133mhz DDR4 RAM, which is perfectly quick enough for everything. You won't notice much difference in higher clocked RAM.

Overall you just stated to me why this deal is actually pretty decent, because you can't even build it for much cheaper when adding the cost of building your own.. But the deal seems to be expired now as its OOS. The computer is awesome though (using it when typing this). It was a good buy and a decently priced machine :D

Amazon it. There are 1060 3GB versions for £190 and 1060 6GB versions for £220. They are coming down

Looking at Amazon they may be below £200 but they are all showing out of stock with 2-5 week lead times.(Mining digitial currency causing all mid range card to be out of stock.) I prefer 6gb memory on graphics. Long term thinking.

Note also there is no indication of what power supply this box has. With a 1060 you would be drawing 400 power in total. Probably 90 less with it's current GPU. Could this machine handle a 1060 card? What power supply does it have. Bet it's not a branded one.

Intel are still 8-9% ahead at gaming on a IPC basis. Albeit Ryzen are better value wise. At present quad core seems to be sweet spot for gaming. I do like the Ryzen chips in terms of future proofing. In this instance the Ryzen base clock for the 1600 is much higher albeit I think this intel chip could be overclocked to at least 4-4.2ghz. (Ryzen 1400 is more comparable). I prefer 1600 for the cores/threads) You are paying for intel on core graphics here which in a gaming machine would have little use.

I don't get the small SSD drive here. Also the memory here will be nothing special. The partpicker above show 3000mhz speed memory. I doubt this system would have anywhere near that. Albeit windows 10 would add £50-60 to this system cost. So £500 without the graphics. The graphics cards are about £140-150 on Amazon.

Overall I like prebuilding systems. The big downside to this at present is the crazy cost of graphics cards and lack of stock till August. This is putting me off building a new system. That and vega coming out soon. I may buy a 2nd hand system for 200-300 quid as a stop gap.

The Dell is a 1050ti which is slower than the 1060 in benchmarks tests. The true gem of this is the 1060.

Anyone who bought it can advise upgrade ram of 8gb.?

This has a TN screen.
Nope it has an IPS screen it's in the summary

Te reviews on Amazon don't seem to agree -

The screen is not an IPS panel which is very dissapointing for me as the discription says Full HD IPS LCD, other than that is a great value machine.

The first thing I am aware of is how bad the screen is. It is just completely dull. All the colours seem washed out, the blacks look grey and the whole thing just looks very bad. The viewing angle has to be just right or the screen becomes almost unreadable.

Viewing angles aren't great, but the overall screen quality is good

My only gripes about this gaming laptop would be the poor viewing angles for its screen

it has an IPS screen which changes colour and contrast according to your view angle

Thanks for the sound advice guys, Think I will hold out for a bit longer!
Other advice is generally to ignore Nate. He's as pro Intel as they come.

I don't multitask whilst gaming, don't video edit or anything like that. Simply want to upgrade my i5-2500k and am looking at the Ryzen 5 1600 as it's got great benchmarks and is (as far as I can tell) great value when comparing to Intel's offerings. Would people say that's a fair assessment and it would be a worthy upgrade? My GTX 970 will be next but my budget constraints mean it's one thing at a time. Thoughts? Is 1600 future proofed enough? Purely as a gamer? Or worth shelling out more for this or the i7?

Purely as a gamer, the I7 is better. There is actually no comparison here, and I doubt anyone will disagree, the I7 series is better at gaming.

However, I would actually skip any upgrade for a bit longer, the 2500k is a great little chip, keep an eye out for the next two intel or amd offerings as you will benefit a lot from this renewed competition.
lrbaumard
When people say this is better for multitasking what exactly do they mean?90% of my gaming is done whilst watching/ doing something on the other monitor and with various chat/ performace programs open.Would i benefit from this over an Intel then? (p.s. have had a FX6300 for years now)

The concept of multitasking is for CPU intensive tasks, such as rendering (So, if you were doing streaming with software encoding while playing games, if for some reason you don't use hardware encoding).

But if you are doing gaming+chat/video *watching* or other things, and your focus is gaming, the Intel 7700k is a better CPU for you.

Q2 of 2017 has the I7 8700k coming out as well, may want to take a hold and see how that does, may reduced the 7700k prices, the ryzen prices, or offer great performance.

If you're only gaming, why not just buy a 1080? You can upgrade your CPU later. £200-250 upgrade after you've sold your 970.

If you want a new gaming focused rig, get the 1600.

Is there any benefit to upgrading the mobo other than due to the lack of pci 3 and other than because of the potential windows 10 creator update issue?
£72 to upgrade to z270k mobo
I wonder if this board will have problems with the Creators Update for Windows 10?

Was recently browsing http://www.tenforums.com and came across a thread mentioning problems with drivers for the GA-H81M-D2V Link

At a quick browse this looks like a decent deal for a pre-built PC but I have some concerns. The 4.2GHz "overclock" in the title is actually the max turbo frequency of the 7600K so not really an overclock, and you won't be able to overclock on this motherboard either due to the H110 chipset of the motherboard. Although it may be possible to overclock through the BCLK.
Most importantly:
H110 Chipset - "Lacks support for RST, Smart Response Technology, Smart Sound Technology, Small Business Advantage 4.0, RAID, overclocking, and multi-GPU configurations. It also loses more than half the USB 3.0 support of the Z170 chipset. The number of HSIO lanes available falls sharply, and their use is limited. Memory support is reduced as well, as only a single DIMM is permitted in each channel. Finally, the H110 is also the only chipset to lack PCI-E 3.0 support; instead it uses eight lanes of the older PCI-E 2.0 standard."
PSU - Only stated as being 500W and nothing else, in my experience the PSU's in these pre-built units are usually kack and have higher rates of failures. E.g. The Corsair CX500 Builder series 500W PSU
The least important:
RAM frequency is only 2133MHz - though this won't make a noticeable difference vs higher frequency RAM
If you did want to buy this, I wouldn't advise picking the 7600K unless you plan to replace the motherboard. Stick with the i5-7400.
Ahh didn't see it was only a H110 mobo. Significantly hurts this deal - still, a decent price nevertheless if you'd rather the all in one warranty and don't want to build.
Very true. Not sure how I'd feel about having to run that 1060 6GB at PCI-e 2.0 speeds though.
I'm sure it wouldn't impact at all. But, it does hinder you having such a modern chipset without any modern features... I'd probably factor in a motherboard upgrade myself and that kinda takes away from this build. As i'd be better off going the Ryzen route then - however for those that want something that "just works" you could do a lot worse than this by far.

1050 is not gaming. 1050ti would be the absolute minimum to forge a gaming device.
That's just not true at all, a 1050 will run games fine. My laptop with a 1050 and an I5-7 runs games easily. Rise of the Tomb Raider looks fantastic as does Doom. Not on Ultra but doesn't need to be.
Yeah, try running R6: Siege, Arma 3 or PUBG. Not good enough.

I run PUBG and arma 3 on a 1050. Abolutely no problems at all. Obviously not on ultra like i said but mid-high settings at 60-70 fps no problem.

Stop talking rubbish.

You are correct about framerates/in-game performance. But I'm afraid an SSD will shave more than a few seconds off your loading times!BF4 takes about 2mins on a spindle, about 20secs on SSD.On R6 :S iege, whilst in the lobby waiting for other players to load. The ones without SSD always hold the rest of us up by about a minute. I know this because they always tell us they don't have SSD.SSD will dramatically reduce load-times. But that's all.

I can load bf4 40-50sec from hdd just checked, maybe take a bit longer for bfh and bf1 to load but i wouldnt call that dramatically faster. I also had my origin game library on ssd, had it on nmwe drive before but couldnt see any improvements in loading time over standart samsung evo ssd. If you play games frequently its good to have one at least for them games thats benefits a lot from ssd. Sure its one of best upgrades that pc can have to speed everything up in many different ways, but I wouldnt say its a "must have" for games. Since I work a lot with PS CC Im using my ssd's as a scratch disk, and this is where you really can see a benefit of having a ssd over a standart hdd especially when working with a large project or banners.
Also worth mention that todays games use around 40-50gb if you dont have any mods or extra content wioth it, so in a standart 120gb ssd that cames in most laptops that has both storages you will only be able to install 1-2 games on it, and still end with rest of them on hdd.
R6 :S iege You can be waiting in lobby for other players all the time, as there will always be someone who run his games from hdd.

Yeah, you're just wrong on that. It would run those games (don't know about Arma 3), not on Ultra but the games would be playable. Especially PUBG which is poorly optimised though may be better now.
Just go on youtube and you can watch people playing these games on laptops with this configuration.
Actually, YOU are wrong on that. Look at these figures published by reputable benchmarkers.
It still gets beaten by the 670 - which is quite an old card now.
You can literally double/triple your FPS by moving to the 1060.
to me, less than 30 fps is not playable:Performance Stats:
- Project Cars - average 43pfs, 1080p - Tom's Hardware
- Total War: Warhammer - ave. 22.4fps @ 1080p - Techpowerup
- The Witcher 3 - ave. 32.4fps @ 1080p - Techpowerup
- Rise of The Tomb Raiser - ave. 19.4fps - @ 1080p - Techpowerup
I conclude, this is not a card which will provide reliable or consistent AAA 1080p gaming performance on a PC.

Put it this way, i have a laptop with these specs and it plays The Witcher 3 absolutley no problem. Not on Ultra but more than playable, as is Rise of the Tomb Raider which looks fantastic on it. So 1050 is a gaming card, which is what I disuputed in your original statement.

Their company register show only £50k in cash....

What do you mean by company register? If you mean the last filed accounts at company's house they only cover the period to 31 March 2016:

https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/04017044/filing-history
Their company register show only £50k in cash....clearly they are manipulating their status as charity and VAT loopholes which is very uncharacteristic for charities.

Even if the go bust or their shady supplier vanishes, eBay and PayPal will have to cough up, which serves them right, for promoting ponsi scheme.

Either ways a laptop turns up or not I am making charity commission aware of this.

I urge others to do the same. They should not commit themselves to something which they are clearly got poor control over.
Around 195k made selling just the macbooks. Nice little interest earner if kept in the bank account for a month!
They shouldn't be taking money from buyers to finance a big order from a supplier - their main business model is to refurbish phones and laptops not make speculative orders from oversea suppliers of new goods. Sounds similar to another long standing seller who resold imported iPads and Samsung phones - last year they took thousands of orders for discounted iPads and their supplier vanished with their cash - they ended up with hundreds of negative feedback and lost their ebay account in addition to having to refund everyone.

Friend of mine has used the Pro 3 for the last few years at Uni, I've recently stated using a Surface Book. Both are excellent, if you intend to use pen input regularly the Pro is excellent.

It's made my note taking far more organised and consistent, not to mention neater since I can erase bits and pieces instantly, plus then I can access them wherever via one drive. Handwritten math to text recognition is excellent too, it's far easier than writing them out manually in Word.

The only downside to the pro is that occasionally the kickstand makes it too deep to fit on a narrow surface comfortably (coffee shops, planes etc).
I've used a surface pro 2 for the last year and it's outstanding. Can only dream of upgrading to this.

Very minor grumble but Im finding the lack of NUM LOCK LED is somewhat annoying! How can you tell if its on without typing first to see?! :D
What do you think of it, is the screen bright enough?.

There is a lot of build your own v stock. My pc is 6 year old. I wanted a new one that will play all the latest games at decent graphics.

But there was one clincher. 12 months interest free on my Argos card. Take That pcpartpicker. Lol

The Omen also has wireless/Bluetooth and memory card reader, oh and you forgot the ssd and hdd.

120gb ssd - 40
1tb hdd - 40
1060 3gb - 180
S340 fancy case - 60
Psu - 40

Windows £20

Total - 670, and a better pc.

Add a mem card reader and wifi if needed.

Spend extra on upgrades if needed.

The point im making is buying prebuilt is stupid in most cases. The only deal ive really seen on a prebuilt that genuinely been cheaper than building is the alienware steam boxes for £250 last Christmas.

unless you do gaming then forget this and just get a laptop... with the improvement in processor power and now with ssd's a half decent laptop can cope easily with anything but gaming. not to mention you can move a laptop, use it anywhere, they don't require a desk like this would. for £750 you could get an HD screen i7 laptop with SSD and 8+GB RAM

Used to sell loads of these in John Lewis. Why, I don't know. The screen is horrendous - I've seen better on £300 laptops.

Sure, it's light. But I guess the real reason is that it's a mac, and cheaper than the rest. Still, I managed to dissuade a few people getting them and to get the MBPr at least, or if they were happy with Windows still, a few of Asus' offerings, which tremendous displays and Apple-like build quality.


ASUS 100% do not have Apple build quality. I agree it's overpriced and the screen resolution is shocking for current specs but no one builds them like Apple do.
So many apple haters, stick to your hackintosh machines if price is such an issue.. stop ruining it for everybody else
Quite expensive for what you’re getting, not my type of a deal haha
Cold - £829 at argos now!

Click
zombrex
Genuinely bemused at those that use a £849 machine for word processing and web browsing but it's ok it has an Apple logo so it's just great as is....ps it's an overpriced underspecced lemon just like every apple device before it.
Usually bought by those that look like they need a good wash haircut and change of clothes but Apple = wealth wealth = success ....derp
Bonus points if you still live with mum and dad at the age of 35 have a 3 yr lease on the never never 50k audi sat the drive and bemoan the cost of home ownership stop buying over priced tat enjoy a better quality of life

I know I shouldn't feed the troll, but hey - When I bought it for just that - there wasn't a single Windows laptop out there that got the kind of battery life the Macbook Air did, the advertised battery life was actually accurate.

Even now - My Dell XPS 13 9350 work laptop bought late last year lasts around 4-5 hours (meant to last well over double that according to Dell). My macbook air still (3.5 years later) lasts close to the advertised time.

I will give you, certainly the Air, is overpriced by todays standards, but it is far from 'tat'.

There was a deal for these before Xmas with free Xbox and reduced prices. Does anyone remember what the prices were? I want to have something to compare against as this price is still way too high for that they had it at, considering the release of the new Pro.
Quidco only says "5% for Surface" now

The headphone offer finished on the 30th June. Also I bought the Surface Pro 4 last night and Quidco only tracked at £43 ! So I cancelled the order.

Hey, yeah I just seen that although I don't think I would of added them anyway as the cashback will be worth more

I went for the i5 / 8GB today,quidco tracked lower as you mentioned however it does say on the quidco site:

"Cashback may initially track at a lower or higher rate and update once confirmed"

its a great deal at 15% cashback

Not according to the blurb from your link: "256GB SSD Not Included". Regardless, the i3 part is the main problem with your comparison argument
It wasn't my link. However, if you do read the link correctly it does state
Solid State Drive 256GB SSD
Hard Drive Not Included - 256GB SSD

Unfortunately many companies detail laptops, incorrectly, this way, where they class the Hard Drive as different to an inbuilt SSD drive.

This laptop has potato graphics, so it's no good for gaming.

So has anyone actually got one of these and comment on the screen. Is it really that bad?
On closer inspection I don't think anybody should buy this laptop. The screen is ABYSMAL. It's TN and Notebookcheck reports it as producing only 150nits!

This laptop - not a big difference from under £300 i3 laptop. Advantages are ssd and 1080p, others are hardly an upgrade.
i5 will provide a substantial boost from i3 in day to day use. i5 to i7 not so much. Find us a comparable i3 with 8GB ram and an SSD.
I don't think this deal is red hot or anything... just saying

There's very little difference between i3/i5/i7 'U' chips in a laptop.
I really don't see how a low power mobile i5 chip will provide a "substantial boost" in day to day activities. Desktops are another story entirely.

I think I might go for this.
Some reviews online say the screen is quite poor, does anyone know if this is true?
I had the Inspiron 15 on my shortlist until I took a trip to Currys a couple of weeks ago to look at some models in the flesh and I was VERY disappointed with the screen on this laptop. It was dull AND fuzzy and I have since decided against this laptop completely solely because of this.

Funnily enough, one of the best screens I saw (in this price range) was the Inspiron 13 - it was a bright, crisp screen that was visibly superior aside the 15" Inspiron. I think it's a 2in1 though, the screen folds around and I am not really interested in that.

matter of opinion
I bought the similar one last year and picture is good of a quality

As you say that was last year.
You can't compare it to this year's model if it's using different components especially the screen.

I have this CPU. As I wasnt going to over clock I didnt need a K series. THis processor Does the Job for my gaming. Got it with a Geforce1070 and works like a dream! I Only got it back 3 months ago for £180 so this is a great price.
This processor also supports up to 64GB of DDR4-2400/2133
IS THAT THE BEST it can do?
Back on topic, I have had a few things from Play Asia, although not for several years now; I dont remember any issues with tax + duty to be paid; but there is always the chance it will be stopped and you will get a bill.

I have had a large £150 item with no extras, and an item that was 2p over (currency fluctuations), that I got charged £12 (**** admin charge mostly!!).

The SLOWEST shipping option is usually the safest when it comes to avoiding customs duty.

I'm still going for a i7 when the prices drop this year . as Intel release the new generation Cpu older stock prices will fall
A bit optimistic, as that hasn't happened in previous generations. Minor price drops where a retailer takes the hit might be possible, but Intel haven't dropped any prices AFAIK since the Athlon64 days. And so far, it looks like they are ignoring Ryzen since cutting prices would lose them more profit than losing a few sales to AMD, for now.
As for the rest, Ryzen's memory compatibility hasn't been that bad for a brand new platform as long as people stick to the official speeds of 2400/2666 rather than trying to overclock and get 3000+. Of course, Ryzen gains a fair bit with higher memory clocks so no wonder people try.
* Brand new platform being the important point. Even Intel with it's $12+ billion R&D budget (vs AMD at under $1 billion), has had trouble with new platforms before. X99 (which was the first to support DDR4) had lots of teething issues. Skylake's DDR4 support was solid but a lot slower than Kabylake's (about the only real difference between the two). So far, we've had one leaked review of Skylake-X (from Hexus and Bit-Tech - same owners - who seem to have gotten their hands on a i9-7900X without Intel's NDA) and there seem to be constant BIOS updates too. Sanctioned reviews are due tomorrow AFAIK, so it will be interesting to see if X299 suffers from any teething issues.
Latest bios updates are almost fixing every memory issue now.
Yes, I know. Just waiting for a tech site to review with the latest updates now. When I last looked at DDR4 prices (at 2x16GB kits), the G.Skill Samsung b-dies PC3200 were almost 70% more than the cheapest AData PC3200 ones so once those are are confirmed to work it will make a big difference to the overall costs.

Why i5/4GB version for £979 is hotter then i5/8GB for £915 ?!?
The 4GB one is the Surface Pro (5) 2017, you're posting the Surface Pro 4.

So the new one is approx 20% better performance, 50% more battery power, better graphics etc. 8GB would be nice, but it's certainly not the only difference here.

seems like they forgot to put their logo on the lid.looks incomplete and weird.

I love the non-brandedness.

I bought one of these on the 6th. Turned up yesterday and it's a lovely little laptop!

Looks great, feels great, performs great. Can't fault it.

I did a fresh install of windows as it comes with Chinese Windows. There's guides on how to do it tho so not too bad.

TBH Gearbest support we're great when I was nagging them about where it was. From being shipped, it took 10 days to reach me. Tracking updates included. No customs charges.

My only complaint is with Yodel at the very end of the parcels journey. Unfortunately I was at work when it was deleivered and the update from Yodel said 'left in a safe place'. Great! I thought. It'll be with the next door neighbour. However, when I arrived home it was wedged up next to the front door! Absolutely unbelievable.

All in all a great laptop.

I bought this under a month ago at same price and received it within 2 weeks of ordering. I did a clean install of Windows 10 English bought from ebay, as on the chinese version even if you change the language there are a few things still in chinese.Only other thing to note is that it has a US keyboard layout, two slight differences I can tell are that the @ key is moved to shift and hold 2 key, and I don't see a pound sign on the keyboard.Can't fault the laptop performance in general, I love the screen.
There was no need to buy windows, just reinstall windows 10 single language, but in English, and then re-activate.

720P screen is woeful in this day and age. Welcome to the dark ages, basically, with this laptop. 1080p minimum for a 15-inch screen.
£379 now
so you're going to be squinting to see everything? I have a friend who has a 1080p 14inch laptop and you can't see anything. If you're using it long term, you really shouldn't have things that small anyway.

Then again, I do coding. Having a high resolution would really kill my eyes.

Awesome deal!! Where did you buy the laptop from? Aldi?
