I've been searching laptops for months. I'm after something that will play modern games on medium settings and have a good battery life for surfing the web etc for less than £1000 Is this something I should invest in?

This is more than capable of playing the latest games. Played Doom (2016) in Ultra settings this afternoon, absolutely flawless.
If this code is still active, I'd pay the extra £100 for the 1060 and a laptop name I trust.

Troll be trolling.

I don't know if you are being serious or not, God help us all if you believe Lenovo are a brand you can trust and Asus are not.

Alas, this is the cheapest I7-7700HQ on the market with the GTX1050 4GB model.

No more better or worse than Asus honestly. Lenovos are well built within reason.

I'll respect your opinion, but I think you are wrong. We used to have Lenovo laptops in our workplace and they have all gone to laptop heaven, cheap plastics, falling apart at the hinges, touch pads failing within warranty and then again outside of warranty. I also had the Lenovo Yoga 2 from release and had no end of troubles with it. Personally I wouldn't touch anything Lenovo again.

Whilst op is right it can play Doom in ultra, it isnt the case for a lot of games and you'd need to tweak it down a notch for some games to medium or in the case of battlegrounds poor optimization, low settings. See what games you play and see whether it can handle it.

​Ah, well for work im not so much an advocate for Lenovos. I much prefer HP or Dells. We've got a Yoga 2 and a 520 at home and both have been solid. Ive also had an Asus but cant remember the model now and it was solid too. So for me im ok with all

My old Acer, i5 2nd gen, bought on release day, is still going strong, can't be far off 10 years old and I don't know of any other computing device left in my house still working after that time!
Good price, solid make. If they did a 1060 for £1k I'd be all over it, but it's just not enough juice for me.
Still only 1 year warranty, that;s why I prefer to spend a little more and shop at Scan.
Battery life is bad.
Why do they make these gaming laptops so unbalanced. An expensive top end CPU with a low end GPU which means you will always be GPU locked.

Would much rather an i5 and a 1060 for the money.

It boils down to the fact that laptops are not primarily designed for gaming a dedicated GFX card that can play games at a decent res on a normal non gaming laptop is a bonus.

If you want to game 'properly' on a laptop then you need to be prepared to spend £1500 for mid level and £2000 and upwards for desktop level performance and in the end its completely wasted on your small laptop screen anyway. I know a lot of people who swear by gaming on laptops but apart from 'on the go' gaming they are largely a hugely expensive and due to the lack of upgrade ability, pointless endeavor.

But this is sold as a gaming laptop - so it should be speced to match that. You could make this decent by reducing the CPU and increasing the GPU, especially in 1080p.

First of all you can get a decent spec'd Nvidia1060 laptop for less than £1500 (actually about £1,250) which of course is still a lot of money. This will play many AAA games at max settings in 1080p and even the most demanding games at high settings.
This is because, in a decently spec'd laptop, a 1060 gpu will give you desktop level performance as the 1060 is faster than a desktop Nvidia 970 and not that far off a desktop 980 which is a beast of a card in its own right.
Finally not all of us have the space for a Desktop. But if you do have the space and don't mind the fixed location of a desktop then of course a desktop is better value for money.

Is there a site with advice for gaming laptops and what to look out for?

I'm going to be investing in one soon so need to know what GPU to go for, what CPU etc

As far as I can tell, if I can afford it, an i7 (7th gen) with a 1060 would be ideal? Then as much memory as I can afford with an SSD

Try to find a similar laptop at a similar price with at least a 1060.

This one has a 1050 and I think you might regret it later.

This is all about opinion... I know Asus are a good brand in general but their support is poor... Still would pay the extra £100 for a 1060 and a brand I trust more.

Just because someone has a different opinion doesn't mean you need to disrespect them.
A good option for video editing? my older i7 laptop struggles....
If anyone has one of these, how bad is the fan noise and is it constant?

They haent been a 'pointless endeavour' for me.....quite the opposite in fact.

I upgrade my MSI every 3 years and always get a decent return on my old one. I have a GT80 which has i7, 32gb DDR5 dual SLI and 18" screen...it is incredible and immersive to play games, watch films or listen to music via the dedicated amp & DAC. Yes it cost me £2500 but I'll get back half that towards next one. So yes outlay for laptops more, but get a decent brand and they'll hold their residual value far more than a desktop, as gaming laptops are always in high demand, they are very popular for a number of reasons.

I absolutely love gaming on it, chuck it on bed & away I go and the missus gets to watch the television.

I don't want a big ugly PC tower in house, and I don't want to take over TV in evening every night so a gaming laptop perfect compromise. Plus I love strategy games which are largely rubbish on consoles.

When I go away with work, which is a lot, I can take away with me and have some gaming time at hotel.

So, your pointless endeavour comment is well off base

​2nd Gen i5s would be 6 years ago not 10. Also, Intels back then were solid processors, more on performance than caring about low wattage.

6 years or 10 years, it's still a huge difference to where we are at now.

Very, very rarely does a CPU give up the ghost before any other component of any computer device though, so I'm not seeing what your point is?

​My point was that its not that long ago. My 550 dell from 2012 is still incredibly powerful, more so than same priced laptops showing on HUKD atm. My second point was a general point on Intels being cheapskates putting poor cpus after the third gens which are more focused on efficiency than performance.
