Good all round spec for this laptop. A 6GB 1060 would have been nice but games will run smoothly enough @ 1080p

Not confirmed but a couple of sellers state the screen is 120hz which would be a bonus.

This is current selling at roughly the same price from a few vendors.

Ha! No, just on the lookout for a good deal on a gaming laptop for myself. Sharing what I find on the way

The cashback offer at AO has expired but I managed to get hold of one before it did. Have had it only a week but I'm very happy with it. The GTX 1060 3gb card runs everything (Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1 etc) on ultra settings in FHD at over 100 fps, never dropping below 60fps. Absolutely no lag or stutter, everything runs buttery smooth. Some sellers state 120hz but they've got it wrong, it's a 60hz screen. Still a fantastic IPS panel though and G-Sync technology really enhances the gaming experience as it prevents screen tearing for seamless graphics. If you turn G-Sync off, you really notice the difference and appreciate what it offers. I've had absolutely no problem with overheating and while the fans do turn on when playing games, they're not at all loud so very happy about that. If you restart the laptop, it takes literally 15 to 20 seconds to boot up and you're ready to go. I can't tell you how pleased I am with this as my 10 year old desktop that it replaced used to take about 5 minutes lol. Build quality is also solid and the only negative is the battery life, which is abysmal..... around 3 hours and when it gets below a percentage of your choosing, battery saving mode and CPU throttling kicks in to save power, meaning your gaming frames per second will drop from 100+ to around 30 with plenty of lag and stutter. However, so long as you keep the charger plugged in, you won't have this problem. As I'm replacing a deskptop pc, mine never leaves the house and is always plugged in so I don't have this problem but if you're going to be away from a power outlet for any length of time then this is definitely going to be an issue for you.

WHO SHOULD BUY THIS........ Anyone who wants a fantastic value for money gaming laptop to play triple A titles such as Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1 etc on ultra settings on a gorgeous FHD screen at 100+ fps with zero lag or stutter AND will have the charger plugged in at all times.

WHO SHOULDN'T BUY THIS........ Anyone who is regularly going to be away from a power outlet for any more than 2 hours at a time.

PS. I've got the FY410T version with a '128gb SSD' and '1tb 7200 HDD'. If you plan on getting the FY173T model in this thread then you'll also have to get a minimum 1tb 7200 HDD fitted after purchase, as the 256gb SSD just isn't going to be big enough to hold more than a few games. I've got Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 and they're both 63gb each.

Gutted I slept on that A.O. deal, incredible price for what you get! Was looking at it for nearly a week but didn't pull the trigger. Glad you're happy with it.
