Hi All

been in the market for a Gaming / Multimedia Laptop for the wife for a couple of weeks. Narrowed it down to a couple of options:

Dell 7559 or Acer VN7 592.

Was going to pull the trigger on the dell (even though the screen is reportedly weak), when I found this.

Latest i7 Skylake laden Acer Nitro (15.6) for 799.99.

•Intel® Core™ i7-6700HQ Skylake processor
•15.6 inch screen (1920 x 1080) 16:9 IPS
•8Gb DDR4 memory
•NVIDIA GeForce 960M VR dedicated graphics
•1Tb SSHD
•Windows 10
•DVD-Super Multi DL drive
•WiFi; Bluetooth 4.0
•3x USB 3.0; HDMI; RJ-45
•Thunderbolt Port
•H 2.3 W 39, D 26.3 cm
•Weight: 2.4 kg
•Acer Aspire VN7-592G laptop - Black

This spec has a retail of over a Grand and PCWorld currently has the I5 version for 899.

Just needs an extra stick of ram and has the option for an M.2

Getting delivered Thursday

Just an update TCB tracked at £48.

Update: 18/12/15
Back to this price after an increase. Had this a couple of weeks now, Fantastic value for money. Much better screen than the Dell 7559 and DDR4 as well, rather than DDR3 which some OEMs are using with Skylake processors.

I'd expect you to pay over a grand...
Seems really good for the price. Kinda tempted to bite, especially with the right discount code. If they give a code for new customers at the moment, I might.

Any further notes on use of this laptop so far, OP?

The laptops been fantastic, although with it being for the wife I've not had the chance to fully test its gaming credentials.

The chassis is svelte, with great build quality. The screen covers most of the gamut required for accurate colour reproduction and is also quite even with its backlight. Add to that it the latest generation processor paired with DDR4 (unlike Dell and some others who have used DDR3) along with Thunderbolt and you have a Laptop that is future proof as the current tech will allow.

Have an 8GB stick and 128gb Samsung 951 M2 on order (cost less than a 100 notes), so for £850 (taking into account the already received cash back) its a fantastic laptop for the money, I would wholeheartedly recommend it.

Thanks for the reply. Is the idea to install an M.2 SSD to store the OS and any other important stuff on? I'm a bit new to upgrading myself. I tried upgrading a laptop with an SSD myself for the first time recently. Also, as for ordering more RAM, did you just order another 8GB stick like the one currently in it? Could you provide a link for that? I'd be unsure about what to buy. Thanks!

Yep the idea is to place the OS on the M2, and leave the hybrid drive for storage on the go.

As far as the 8gb stick, I've not received it yet (Dabs are ****) so don't want to post the link just in case I encounter any issues. But the memory that comes already installed is a Hynix HMA41GS6AFR8N. If you want complete parity use the same part.

​Thank you for all the info, it's helpful. Is there any benefit in using the exact same RAM to upgrade? Or is it fine as long as it's the correct type of RAM?

Its just a better guarantee of compatibility when running in dual channel. I have purchased a kingston stick that runs the same spec, so it ahould be ok.
Is this the version with the thunderbolt port - it doesn't say it includes it in the Very.co.uk description.

Yep, in all fairness its says it comes with a DVD Drive, which it doesn't as there's no room.
