Seems like a damn fine deal for the price!
So happy I picked up the £499 Dell Inspiron deal, gaming laptops are expensive as hell! But for the current market this is a great price, heat OP
I do love these 1060s (especially the full fat 6gbs) for under 800 quid. Have a hot vote!
Hot for me. I only like better processors but still hot anyway.
I picked up one of these from AO a few weeks ago for £709. (Slightly lower spec 1060 3GB.) For gaming I have no complaints but be aware the screen is a poor TN panel.

Due to the TN screen, if you want this for photo/video editing, look elsewhere. Hot from me.

Note that this is a HQ series processor and is most likely faster than most U series CPU's which can not sustain high clock speeds for long periods.
good deal although the 8gb ram may be something to deter you

I know the difference between HQ and U processor. I will never buy a gamer laptop with U processor. I think it has very good specs but the processor is a little bit weak but is better than U processors.
Does anyone know if it includes the backpack? I really want that backpack!

8gb is more than enough for the CPU and GPU! You won't have any bottlenecking with this. ^-^ Unless of course your streaming in 4K then i can see a problem. lol
Might be a bit of a silly question for those in the know, but I was wondering why the max battery life is so poor on this?
I get playing games or doing demanding tasks will reduce battery life, but why is it still low even when using it as a "normal" laptop?
There's something uncomfortable about handing over £800 for a product made by Asus.

quite a few games need more


What games won't run on 8gb ram then?

What needs more than 8GB? , that is loads of RAM. You would only need mlre for certain demanding specialised tasks. I think 4GB is a perfectly fine amount of RAM generally.
Nowt wrong with Asus
I actually bought this and its a fine machine power wise/graphics card, the screen is poor compared to other laptops I have owned which is a shame, with poor viewing angles and an out of the box odd washed out look, its fine for gaming {now calibrated to my preferences) but I have to hook up to another monitor for lightroom/photoshop.

All said, I am happy with the purchase, screen is better now calibrated and I mainly use it for WoW which it plays with all settings on max. I may add more RAM down the line, it has a free slot and can take up to 32GB total.

Taken from the GeForce website for GTA V recommended specs:

Recommended System Requirements
  • OS: Windows 8.1 64 Bit, Windows 8 64 Bit, Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.2GHZ (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 @ 4GHZ (8 CPUs)
  • Memory: 8GB
  • Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD7870 2GB
  • Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
  • HDD Space: 65GB
  • DVD Drive

So that's a lie.

it's not a "lie", that's a bit dramatic. I run an i7 pc and upgraded to 16gb due to certain games needing more than 8gb
read this article especially the bits around the 1060, if I had this laptop I'd upgrade the ram (not checked if it can be)

There is a detailed video on YouTube showing that for a lot of the newer games 8gb is not enough, I mean its 'not enough' that you can't play them, but that it will effect the performance.

Edit: Actually scratch that, I'm talking out my arse. Just watched the video again and it was only 1 or 2 games where there was a noticeable difference. Otherwise the the overall difference is barely anything.
Edited by: "DJSyko" 9th May
To be fair if you wanted a "gaming laptop" that could play ALL games you wouldn't be looking at this, more so something well over the 1k mark. So to say 8gb ram won't be enough because a couple games won't run perfectly is just nonsensical. I'd imagine people purchasing this don't expect to pay games at high settings at 4k but use it as a high end work laptop or mid range gaming laptop..

My FX503 only has the GTX 1060 and doesn't have the second Intel HD graphics. That means 100% of the time, its using the beast GPU. As the laptop is also very thin, those fans work really hard when gaming. The GTX 1060 is also not the Max Q version but I'm not complaining as it has all the cuda cores just like the desktop version.

I skip read through that link, I don't see any games mentioned that won't work on 8gb ram. I therefore call BS.

16GB is definitely ideal, not arguing with that fact, but 8GB will run your games fine. If you're wanting other programs to run in the background simultaneously: youtube videos, discord, streaming software etc, then you may have to consider getting more than 8, but if you're just gaming then 8GB is fine. So yeah, I agree. BS :P
This is a very, very good price.

8GB will suffice - install your best games on the SSD and you won't notice the slightly low RAM spec.

Another 8GB module isn't going to cost you more than £50.

And no, they won't expect to play in 4k - because the display only goes up to 1080p.

For 1080p gaming, this Laptop will run EVERYTHING with high settings.
Goodness, my laptop has a 970M and it still runs most modern titles in high settings.

The GTX1060 is a beast, but yes - this does fit the mid-range gaming category.
Still, you won't find this spec cheaper, anywhere.

RAM will not affect FPS in game.
It will only affect things like world load and texture load times.

Any explanation to back this statement?

I purchased a £1400 laptop from them, has worked like a charm since day 1 (owned for about 30 months now).
ROG G751, can't fault it.

as I said earlier, that is what I would do if I bought this - it's a good deal but if people expect this to run PUBG or other demanding titles 'smoothly' with 8 gigs of ram they may be disappointed - when a pc runs out of ram, it will use the hard drive for "Virtual Memory". BUT hard drives are slower than RAM - so the pc will run slow. 16gb avoids this problem. I posted an article above which clearly illustrates the issue. Adding another stick of ram will future proof the laptop.

any way I agree it's a good deal, voted hot, and no concerns over ASUS, used 'em for years
Slightly off topic but I’m looking to buy my son a gaming PC up to a maximum of £600,i know absolutely nothing about them so i dont even know what I’m looking for.Now i know £600 isn’t going to get me much but can anyone recommend a gaming PC for that money or where is a good company to buy from.

Also would you get more for your money with a £600 gaming laptop than you would from a £600 gaming PC ?
