Build a gaming PC or wait till the more expensive laptop models reduce in price. 1080p 60fps will be the norm for laptops of this price soon.

Can this max out graphics on something like battlefield or doom?
absolutely not unless on very low settings. The gpu is less than an equivalent of the gtx660
​Oh. Seems contrary to a post above.
Ignore Bobo, he seems upset about something. 970m paired with i7 will give 30fps at 4k. It'll give 60fps at 1080p no trouble at all.http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-970M.126694.0.html
​Thanks for that info. Dont want to spend £800 to find out i have to run things in low settings like bobo has said.
if you like to play at low fps it is ok otherwise you need to lower the settings drastically. Here we play with sli/cf's about 6 times the power of this card and we always find problems to get decent fps. Just good for a laptop but wasting of money in a way. With £800 you can build a decent desktop pc far more powerful than this laptop. Anyway I do not get people that are at all costs happy to play at lower frames, it is really annoying. As an example, on a 30hz monitor=30pfs max feel, how can you play a game at that fps, or even at 45 or so in a 60hz tv/monitor. Anything less than 55fps should not be considered hence the need to lower the settings for a smooth not annoying game play. Anyway, just got one myself to play space invaders in bed hoping it will not lag that much.
Beware of the way they conduct these reviews especially when it comes to a laptop and if you want to take it in consideration, this GPU is slightly less than a 5 years old gtx660
​What would you suggest then? I need a laptop not a desktop and i want to play games on it at a decent quality aswel as need it to do video editing etc. Budget is about 1k.
well, if you got no option then this laptop is nearly the best you can find and I must admit that the price is good. My argument was against people that do not know what they are talking about when it comes to gaming. If they are happy they are happy but do not expect miracle, just lower the settings for a very smooth play

I've got a high-end overclocked 980 Ti PC, but everyone else other than you has adjusted their expectations accordingly. People who buy laptops should never expect 1080p/60fps on ultra settings with new games for under £1200.
However, 30fps and higher is a good standard - which is better performing than consoles as well.
Laptops should never be compared directly to desktop PCs because the price/performance ratio is sky high for the smaller parts. For a gaming LAPTOP this is a great deal, even back at £879 which this currently sits at now.

I'm looking for a laptop around the £300 mark. Ideally ssd and as new as possible.. Any recommendations?
MercutioLeonhart
RAMiAM
I purchased one of these a few months back, different seller though, but a bit more expensive I think.
Upgraded RAM to 16gb and replaced HDD with a 240GB SSD and it fly's along.
It also makes a really great hackintosh and runs the very latest OSX without issue, all you need to do I think is replace the wifi card which cost me about £8, again on email. It's also one of the easier hackintosh installations.
Highly recommended for the money, cracking machine now running OSX.
You just convinced me to buy it. Is this an internal WiFi replacement or a USB one?

Apologies for the late response.

The card I have in mine is a Dell DW1510. Works out the box with OSX.
I'm pretty sure this wasn't the original card that was in the laptop but can't be 100% certain.
I've played with quite a few different hackintosh laptops over the last six months, with varying degrees of success, but this one was by far the easiest installation/configuration and imho I think it's a cracking little apple laptop for the money... once you have 8GB+ RAM and an SSD in there it's not bad at all.

are these noisey, fan constantly going?
I bought the E5430 which has the same cpu. The fan is noticeable when it's on. What I noticed was after upgrading the BIOS to the latest version that the fan would only spin up once it reached a certain temperature. So I noticed the fan less. It's silent when browsing and under light loads. Although I have noticed sometimes its spins up and down for a short period even when under those conditions. But overall definitely much less after the BIOS upgrade.
There are some reports on the internet that when these were first released that the fan was noisy, and hence some changed were made to the BIOS to tackle the issue.
Although they have the same CPU, the E6 series will probably have a different cooling solution than the E5 series

Spod
a mobile with GTX1060 should perform nearly as well as a desktop 980[/url]
True enough in terms of performance but the price of nVidia's desktop GPUs makes me think that the mobile versions will cost much more than the ones they're replacing. You'll be able to get a laptop with a 1060 but won't cost anywhere near what the 970m laptops cost. Or 980m for that matter.

Probably true that 1070 will be much more expensive than 970m, but not sure that 1060 will be. Desktop 1060 are shipping about £250, which isn't too much more than a desktop 970 now that prices have dropped on the 970. Even if prices are up a bit, when the new laptops come out it is still likely to drive down the prices for the old laptops with 970m and 980m as sellers try to get rid of old stock. We're already seeing price drops with old desktop card stock so laptops are likely to follow suit. Still worth waiting IMO.

It's a good price right now, but we should see GTX1060 and GTX1070 laptops soon which will almost certainly drive these existing models down further in price.

Rumours are that NVidia is not going to have separate "M" for mobile cards for the 1000 series graphics but incorporate full desktop parts with just minor changes. In that case, a mobile with GTX1060 should perform nearly as well as a desktop 980, much much better than a mobile 960M, so worth waiting a few months if you can, either for discounts on old stock or better performance on new graphics.

Yet another incorrect spec by Argos to your advantage which is very nice. There would be some stupid people who would complain they got more than they bargained for and even some stupid people who would tell Argos they are selling an item much under-valued !! Well done, that's a decent spec for the money.

Hi, i have one and its been brilliant....But with one major caveat- I,ve found it impossible to upgrade to W10; and keep 'running out' of memory- (Even after changing the 128GB sandisk thumb drive I added) to NTFS.....nightmare.....
Windows is the problem; not the device- i wish i could run Android on it!
Ps, its an 2840 Celeron; which is plenty fast.
Are you sure you can describe it as fast, I have a Toshiba laptop with a 2810 processor, wouldn't describe it as fast, I've stuck an Ssd in it so things do load fast, but web browsing is still slow, I use Firefox or edge, and it also really stutters with video over 480p. It's got 4gb ram too.
Hi I also have an i5 full size laptop, and find myself using the Lenovo more, as it has a nice display, good touchscreen, and is happy running Wuaki, Amazon Prime video etc....great battery and stand-by time and .....its cheap so I dont have to be too 'precious' with it.
Not suitable as an main device; but brilliant for the money....how much do people waste on cigarettes/drink in a week....?

Just recieved one of these today, and very impressed with this little thing, almost looks like a miniature macbook air. Remove some of the uneeded bloatware, install start menu 8 or similar, bloack windows 10 update with GWX control panel and your good to go. I am glad there are still Netbook type devices as they are far superior to a tablet for any proper task and far handier than a 15inch laptop. :)
What is the battery life like? I have a lenovo 100s and battery on that is phenomenal >6 hrs when I'm browsing and a bit if YouTube.

I am not sure of the battery life as it was a gift for my dad, however I expect it is very good as I have a dell inspiron with the older Celeron 2.16ghz 2830 and that has a 500GB HDD , 15.6 inch screen and I get around 4-5 hours and it is a few years old now. So I expect 6 hours is possible, though it is a very slim design so might be a bit less. Still phenomenally good value for money and pretty snappy performance, and excellent speakers considering the size. Looks far more expensive than £80.

I have lenovo i3-4010u,nvidia 840m gpu.bought it on German Amazon for 300£
good stuff:
long battery life
dedicated gpu(I play DDO).works on high settings.
bad stuff:
CPU is really slow
when I play DDO it overheats a lot
takes ages to start up

If you put an SSD it would probably start a lot quicker and everything will seem much faster, some good deals for around £50.

I think the nvidia 840m and the CPU both generating heat close to each other will contribute to the overheating, not much you can do about it. If it is shutting down because of overheating then I guess you could ask for it to be repaired but I doubt it'll help unless a fan has failed.

Whilst the 1080p resolution was nice, the viewing angles were rather poor as was the colour reproduction. That's just my opinion though

Was there anything about the laptop you liked/ disliked other than what you have mentioned?

I can confirm that it definitely does not have a 1TB SSD :D Complained and they offered £40 partial refund. I ended up returning it due to the screen being poor anyhow.

Oh no, disappointed to hear the screen is poor. What was wrong with it?

Agree with above comment. At this price you should expect at least 960M.
Really? Where have you seen a £550 Skylake Core I5 laptop with 960M graphics?
Do your homework and check online. I paid £750 for i7 6700HQ with 970M 6GB 2 months ago so a lot stronger specs for only £200 more (and yes, laptop was new, from big online retailer)

*ONLY* £200 more? That's more than a third extra! But you said you would expect 960M AT THIS PRICE! So where is this £550 Skylake I5 laptop with 960M? I've done my homework and checked online - it doesn't exist!

This machine has the lower specification DDR3 card, so take the figures on that page with a pinch of salt as it's aggregated from the faster DDR5 version and the DDR3 version. If I was you I'd take about 10% off the FPS figures quoted and you'll likely achieve that figure.

Madness to get this with the 1060m out soon which blows the 970m out the water, the leaked specs show it has a lower clockrate desktop 1060.

I am actually holding out for a 1060m laptop, I was sorely tempted by this but the time isnt right for me. However there are some things to keep in mind.
This is a good deal if you need a laptop right now.
The 1060m isn't out yet, we don't know how much it will cost.
Apparently its based on a desktop chip, it may have heat or throttling issues.
The G751 is a nice package too, if you value a nice machine and saving a few quid over raw performance I think its not a bad bet.

I remember when there were a rash of cheap r9 290x cards on sale for a great price, loads of detractors were saying to hold out for the 390 series which would blow them away. In the end it turned out the 390 was a rebadge with more ram and the cheap 290s disappeared.

Well, it isn't madness for those that want a cheaper laptop & either do not want to pay a premium for the high end graphics chipset, or do not care either way.

can anyone tell me how this will run with the new wow legion coming out
Incognitoso
Yes all parameter very good if we compare price for parts and price Yes I do agree that ...
But gaming laptop ? I mean laptop in the first place for gaming - just pure my opinion is little strange ?
why you want bulky and heavy laptop if you can use as portable laptop ? I mean are you will be taking 17 inch laptop for holidays ? or traveling ? or else ?
So if laptop will be on the deck all the time is it not become desktop PC ?
Yes it is slim and still portable compare to desktop PC but that all
GTX 970 vs xbox one s or PS4 what the difference same games same experience
But price for PS4 just 200 + where gaming laptop 900
anyway maybe I become old and my view changes still you need SSD for gaming so this laptop have 1000 GB HDD wich will be very slow to load games need to replace to SSD at least 512 GB £160-200 add to laptop price
Some people travel a fair (for work for example) requiring them to stay away from home for a number of days/weeks. In that case it's great as you don't have to lug around your desktop PC and can easily place this in the room where you're staying.

Doesn't make sense for everyone but there are those for whom it makes perfect sense.

Yes but that's a desktop 960. The 960M in this is nowhere near the same performance.
Did not know that. Thanks for the info. I think the 970m adds atleast £100 to the price so still happy with my purchase just slightly less happy now. Hopefully the display will be good. Dell normally do good displays.

Yes, laptop graphics cards are always much less powerful as laptops cannot realistically produce the power to run then or get rid of the heat they produce. I'm pretty sure your desktop 960 would still be more powerful than the laptop 970. It's going to be a big step down.

I'm looking forward to the new 10 series chipset coming for laptops as they are the same chips as in full desktop machines but clocked lower for heat reasons.
The 960m is around the same speed/performance as a desktop 750ti. It does OK at 1080p with a few adjusted settings but anything gpu intensive at 4k is going to be a no go.....

With the exception of the GPU it's a nicely specced machine imho. Just a shame the GPU is pretty poor.

OK here's confession time, a year or so ago I bought 3 of these deals, similar spec to yours but not as good

only then - you'll be pained to hear - HP were offering 2 cashbacks - the trade in + another one worth about £150

it meant the machines cost not much different to £150, then TCB & Amex points...

Was interested in this deal, but Win 10 free upgrade from Win 7 runs out in 2 days - probably not enough time now to receive delivery and upgrade
On the spec it says:
Operating System Windows 10 Pro 64-bit Edition / Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Edition downgrade
Preinstalled OS Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit Edition
Are they saying "Win 10 Pro 64-Bit Edition" as part of the Microsoft free upgrade?
No this is separate to that offer, this laptop comes with Windows 7 pre-installed and media for Windows 10 along with instructions on how to install it. Ironically there is no disc drive :)https://s31.postimg.org/wkdgwxa8b/win10hp.jpg

presumably (up until today) you could have upgraded to W10 for free - then sold the W10 installation media to a friend? does it come with a product key?

good deal but that's a lot for some extra ports.

I was thinking the same but then again, if you bought them separately you'd need a whole load of USB ports to fit all those other ports in to.

And for decent quality items bought separately, you wouldn't be too far off this price and you'd have a whole mess of wires and ports.

I have to smile every time I see the refurbished bit in the title of items on here, whether it is a phone or laptop. Second hand is the word, refurbished my foot. how do you refurbish a laptop?. Repair is an option if it is faulty. Refurbished sounds better I guess. Now if they where all as new I might be a bit more convinced but the fact these items are graded, depending on condition tells me they are tested, in other words formatted and OS installed and just tested
Your comment let people think that it the same for all sellers which is completely untrue. ​Refurbished from Tesco or argos are not "used" as you seem to imply. They are returned from unhappy customers and they're fairly new
We are talking about reputable retailers though arent we, such as Argos, Tesco rather than chancers buying a pallet of used laptops and wiping them over with a damp cloth. Both Argos and Tesco sell laptops new so you have a fair chance of getting a decent one that is described as refurbished.

And with a price to match - try getting an i5 laptop off them and see what they charge.
I'm in two minds to return or not. It's a hassle for one and I think I need to pay the postage. Then what happens if the replacement is just as bad, or worse?

I've been testing and it works really well. For the price and the fact they offer a warranty, I still think they are just worth the money.

I went with the SSD option and I'm assuming its brand new replacement to the old hard drive. It's an Adata SP550. I ran AS SSD benchmark on it and compared it to my now very old first SSD, a Crucial M4, in my main Desktop PC and the Adata beats it on speed so I'm very pleased with that.

I've done a first run through on battery life. From 100% to when it turned ifself off, I got 2 hours 40 minutes. With just over one hour of movie playback from USB stick, web-browsing, benchmarking, installing programs, re-boots, etc.

I have to smile every time I see the refurbished bit in the title of items on here, whether it is a phone or laptop. Second hand is the word, refurbished my foot. how do you refurbish a laptop?. Repair is an option if it is faulty. Refurbished sounds better I guess. Now if they where all as new I might be a bit more convinced but the fact these items are graded, depending on condition tells me they are tested, in other words formatted and OS installed and just tested
Your comment let people think that it the same for all sellers which is completely untrue. ​Refurbished from Tesco or argos are not "used" as you seem to imply. They are returned from unhappy customers and they're fairly new
We are talking about reputable retailers though arent we, such as Argos, Tesco rather than chancers buying a pallet of used laptops and wiping them over with a damp cloth. Both Argos and Tesco sell laptops new so you have a fair chance of getting a decent one that is described as refurbished.
That reminds me, I will have to run Recuva and see how thoroughly they have erased the old data. Not that I care personally since I am happy with the laptop I have, but it would prove interesting I'm sure.

@zxzx, I don't think your rambling. I think its good to share any points/comments that we have with the individual laptops that we received. It will give people an idea of the kind of thing to expect if they order from this seller.
I just picked mine up too and in the process of playing around with it.
My early impressions are, for the money I'm satisfied so far. Mine isn't in the greatest condition but functionally seems good. I would have described mine as more Grade 3 than 2 according to their own criteria.
Mine has been 'cleaned' but its like a rush job. You can see the big streaks on the screen where they have wiped it down. Not a biggy for me cos I will do it, but its small things like this that would cost them nothing to do and leave a bigger impression to the customer.
2 of the rubber feet on the bottom are missing and there is lots of residue from sticky labels that they couldn't be bothered to remove. Not a biggy again as I will put some nail varnish remover on it.
There seems to be a screw missing on the bottom, but whatever it 'screws' down doesn't seem to affect things. I may leave it or see if they will send me one.
Mine appears to be repaired, like the chassis was moved into another case or something as the seams between them don't look good and flush, with lots of scuffs that don't seem like they would be there under normal wear.
On the plus side, mine seems to be the HD+ version with 1600 x 900 resolution. I also got a DVD drive with mine but haven't checked if its ROM or a writer.
The SSD supplied seems to be an Adata. Feels responsive but I will run some benchmarks later.
That's unfortunate, maybe you should message them and see if you get a better one (though I know I'd be annoyed at the hassle myself)

Do these actually work without slowing things down?
Will let you know when I set mine up. It seems to be the option that we use at work now too. Instead of traditional Laptop docking stations we have gone for Lenovo USB docks and no complaints from the guys I've seen using them so far.

I've heard positive things about these docks before. Should be able to cope with a screen, something charging and something transferring at once

Currently have an Acer C720 chromebook but thinking of changing my phone to a dreaded Apple branded one.
Would this machine run ITunes ok if I ditched the Acer?
Install Windows 10 on the C720, much better hardware. Typing this on my Win10 C720.
Does the keyboard and trackpad on the laptop work in Windows 10 ?
How is the general performance ?

Keyboard and trackpad work fine, I think all of the hardware is supported. General performance is excellent. Its not a powerhouse, but the 2955u is a pretty useful CPU for most tasks. I don't think you can get anything better for near the price.

Dual boot or just W10?
Also how's your wifi reception?
I was using a dual band router when on Plusnet as the Acer seem to struggle desperately on the 2.4 range but was fine on 5ghz. Have swapped over to Sky broadband and using their single band hub and struggling again.

Just W10
Wifi seems fine, I have never noticed any drop-out or range problems.
got mine today and for the money 99 it's a no brainer, seems OK so far, bit plasticy but that would be me being picky, just trying to get used to windows 10 now
Bought one yesterday. have absolutely no need for it. but at that price

i5 aint exactly "fast". Tech from 2010!
So go on then, what do you do with your laptop that requires a faster processor?
I'm using a 2007 Dell D620 with a Core2Duo processor and 4gb RAM as we speak with a 120GB SSD fitted and its happily running Win10, Office 365 and i can watch movies and downloads on it, and surf the net on it.
I'm a video editor.
i5 will only suite web browsing, downloading movies etc. Will lag with gaming, with content creation, and with heavy multitasking.
There's a reason why this laptop is cheap, and it's not because Dell are in a good mood.
2GB ram is the absolute minimum to run windows 10 64bit, leaving a paltry 2gb for anything else you want to use, like word, like web browsing, like video playback etc.
Just want to use it to browse the web? Get a tablet instead.
I have 4 purpose built systems I built by the way.
So why are you even on this thread commenting on something that clearly doesnt suit your needs anyway?? Why does it even interest you?
I do heavy duty data analysis in Excel as part of my daytime job and this deal wouldnt suit it, but it doesnt mean i cant see the merits of it.
Uh huh, the reason they are cheap is because they are used and probably 3+ years old. Would you pay as much for a 3 year old car as you would a new one??
And an i5 WONT lag with gaming. Gaming is heavily dependent on the GRAPHICS card, not the processor. I'm surprised an "expert" such as yourself didnt know that. Put a heavy duty graphics card on the front of an i5 and it'll handle 98% of all games. I'd an Alienware 13 last year running an i5 and a GeForce 860M graphics card and it was great. And this ISNT a gaming laptop. It has not got the graphics card for it. It would be foolish to think otherwise.
4GB is MORE than enough for general use. I've this Core 2 Duo D620 with 4GB RAM on at the minute. I've 5 tabs open in Chrome, Excel 2016 open, Word 2016 open and on the fifth tab in Chrome, i'm running an HD movie clip on you tube.
CPU usage is sitting at between 33 and 39% and memory is sitting at 1.7GB used, and the machine is perfectly usable with no lag on the video or in moving between apps. And thats a **** 9 year old Core2Duo processor :rolleyes:
Why use a laptop instead of a tablet? Gee, well ever tried typing on a tablet? Or shifting between multiple tabs in Chrome? Or maybe doing a bit of spreadsheet work? Or typing an email? Maybe you poke your keyboard with one finger so a tablet is great for you, but most people prefer the convenience of a keyboard. And if they dont - get a tablet and ignore this thread because its not relevant.
Built four computers yourself? Woohoo! Your mum must be so proud!

I was going to comment myself but then saw you'd addressed everything! But as predicted here is the self-proclaimed IT expert who is a video editor AND has built 4 computers himself!

I'm sure they're aware that a 'professional' video editor probably has thousands of pounds at his disposal and therefore would not be considering a 3 year old laptop, that many people use GPU encode/transcode and that a broad statement such as 'i5 will lag' and suitable for basic web browsing doesn't ring true - better tell Intel and the public as i3, Celeron, Pentium and Atom are all obsolete. Let's ignore the fact that much of the time, i7 CPUs are the same silicon as an i5 with a slightly higher base clock, turbo and maybe 1MB more cache...
Can anyone recommend a cheap external cd drive to go with this laptop Windows 10?

I picked mine up today. I was initially a little disappointed when I saw the outside of the case because it had some scuffs. But I was surprised to find the screen and keyboard both looked virtually unused. On top of this the battery also seems pretty good. It's been running for about an hour and it's still reporting about 3 hours left. So overall I'm very happy.

Chances are the keyboard has been replaced at some point as they're easy to swap out, so its good its been done :)

RE: the outer case, check ebay as you could probably pick up a new one for a few £ and they' not hard to fit

2GB ram is the absolute minimum to run windows 10 64bit, leaving a paltry 2gb for anything else you want to use, like word, like web browsing, like video playback etc. Want to add plugins to chrome or firefox like flash, pdf viewers, silverlight? Adblocker? You'll just end up using virtual memory, which on a yesterday-tech mechanical hard drive is going to slow down even further.
Just want to use it to browse the web in internet explorer? Get a tablet and bluetooth keyboard instead, you'll have a much wider range of apps to suit low power devices.
I have 4 purpose built systems I built by the way.
And yet people constantly fail to understand why I still use Windows XP...
I use VideoReDo to edit videos on a Core2Duo with 3GB memory (and no pagefile) quite happily. And I can have Firefox and Chrome with lots of tabs open no problem. Have recently bought a couple of secondhand i5 (4th gen) laptops (total cost ~£230) and am working on getting XP running on them - the Toshiba L50t with a 120GB SSD absolutely flies. And apparently you can hack XP to removed the 3.5GB memory limit - not that I would condone such behaviour...
XP is no longer supported by Microsoft, so you won't be protected against any OS exploits your virus checker doesn't catch.
True, but then I am pretty careful. I have multiple machines, all with ZoneAlarm firewall and Avast anti-virus; I regularly do a fresh re-install of the operating system; on my main machine I only browse to reputable sites as well as using several browsers, with one specifically restricted for secure online activities (eg online banking). If you act like an idiot, then maybe you do need all the constant updates from Microsoft to prevent your machine being compromised, but if you're sensible you can take full advantage of the improved performance you get from using a lighter-weight O/S like XP pretty safely.
Putting a 3rd party between your machine's OS and malware protection does not in any reality make it more protected.

Sorry, you'll have to explain that statement a bit more.
