impressive

Hmmmm this for £75 more with extra storage, metallic case and better graphics card or the HP 250 G5 from Misco for £425 ish.

Decent laptop, not sure about £100 cashback.

Does anyone know if the £100 gets applied to your outstanding balance on the laptop, literally making it £499, or if you just get a £100 to spend with Very later on on other items?

It gets applied to outstanding balance in October so make minimum payments till its applied then pay balance off and it's £499. Mine arrived today. Fantastic machine for the money considering some so called entry level gamers are specced with GT940Ms for more than this cost. SSD is super fast and speakers amongst the best I have heard on a laptop. 950M actually outperforms my GTX860M in my old PC. Maybe due to SSD and Skylake to back it up
Edit: it's Microsoft Signature Edition too so no bloat ware

Thanks man, appreciate it. Seems a good deal. I'm looking for a friend, but am almost tempted myself!

I can hand on heart recommend it. Also worth a look is the Asus k501ux at Ebuyer. Most specs the same but it can be bought for £579 for the one with 128gb ssd and spare hard drive bay. I believe that machine is slimmer. Marginal though because this Acer is pretty thin and light but that Asus is a killer deal too
Edit: this F15 GTX 950M is GDDR5 version BTW. Fastest version out there which may explain perf vs my 860m

this seems great for the price assuming the build quality stands up to some use! heat

Does this laptop get super hot when gaming? I cant stand it when the palm rest goes nuclear. If it stays cool I could be tempted.

No it stays pretty cool. Fan is pretty quiet too. Its aluminium on lid top and keyboard and feels cool to the touch after 30 mins on BF1 Beta. I think it's balancing act for laptops with GTX cards and for me the 950m hits the sweet spot between power and heat. My old laptop needed a cooling base with 2 fans in it to keep it cool. Never again will I go for high end gaming laptop like that

Seems like a good deal but the price has gone up to £649.99.

Very has extended the cashback until 15th of September. And you can use code KLLHN for a further 10% off if it's your first order with Very. Great deal, ordering mine now.

I spoke to two different customer service reps and they both said the offers could be used in conjunction with each other, they didn't fill me with confidence though!! But I've written the calls times down and who I spoke to so I can have a moan if it is rejected.

Did your order take a while to show up in your account? TCB has tracked and I have an order reference number but 3 hours later still no sign of it. Rang the customer service and they couldn't see it and suggested placing a new order. Then I couldn't use the discount code because it said it had already been used. I called again they advised to wait 12 hours to see if it showed up.

Not the same machine, that one is 720p screen, no SSD and integrated graphics card

Just ordered. Great specs for the price.
Came to £588.98 with the code so should be £488.98 after the £100 credit.
TCB tracked at £11.37 on top of that too!
Edited by: "Sebules" 9th Sep 2016

It's £650 now? Obviously 550 after £100 cashback...

Does the £100 cashback work in combination with the discount?

Apparently so. The chat advisers seemed to think so anyway!

​I can second that. After speaking to two people on the phone and one on the online chat they all said you can combine it. I had a copy of the chat transcript emailed to me just in case they try to swindle me out of £100 credit!

Thanks Jayo. I'm interested but like you I want proof from them before I buy. I've emailed but I'll try the online chat. Did you use the 20% first credit use or the 10% off first purchase?

I used the 10% off first purchase and selected BNPL 12. As soon as the Credit goes into my account I will pay it off in full.

Did you have any luck with the online chat?

I didn't but it might be because I'm on my phone. I'll try when I'm at home on the PC, thanks!

Although I think the 10% might have gone now as I can't see it anymore.

​It showed up the next day. It's a bit of a naff system when the customer service people can't even find your order and it just appears from nowhere.

That's good to know, hopefully my orders there tomorrow. I agree, the system is naff if even they don't know if it's processing or not. Let's hope the £100 gets added or we may be in for some trouble with a system like that haha

Thanks dkwookies and Jayo! Ordered and it's coming today!

Hope you enjoy. I have been very impressed so far. Can hardly hear the fan even after long gaming sessions. Witcher 3 runs like a dream on it

First time using Very... On the payments page do I sign up for the credit thing? I'm only allowed £600 apparently and this laptop is now £650 so how would that work out?
Also tried applying the different codes but they said invalid?

Hi. Yeah you sign up for the credit but you might be okay once you've applied a code as it'll drop to 588 after 10% off is applied. The code we used was KLLHN for 10% but I think that may have expired on Sunday although I think Very always give discount on first used credit. It's maybe worth speaking to them on live chat or ringing them as this is a great deal if you can get it!

just tried to order this, the 10% has expired and the new user £25 and the refer a friend £20 are not valid in conjunction with the £100 off. (According to the online chat. tried to call 3 times and was hung up on each time, once after 11 minutes and nearly completing purchase. This company a joke and the deal expired.

Hey, did anyone get this ? What's it like ? Just ordered this morning, would imagine it's pretty fast for day to day, does it do okay with games too ??

I'm really pleased with mine! Looks great and runs quick. I've played counterstrike go and world of warcraft and both run fine!
