Best to check with the manufacturer and retailer; the horses' mouths so to speak. Neigh.

Not a 'bad' price. But if looking for a 'hot uk deal' i'd be looking to get a laptop with a 1060 for £100 more. Much more future proof and then can game on ultra at 1080p. For the price it is okay. Heat added for the effort.

From this notebookcheck.net/Asu…tml it looks to be a TN panel. But i'm not sure if there are variants of this model or not.

Seems a decent deal, around £100 cheaper than other similar spec ones.
Tempted, as I promised my Son a gaming laptop if he did well in his exams, he did!!!

My bad I was thinking of this which I considered a few months ago. hotukdeals.com/dea…715 but this is a 1050 still for £100 less than this though.

For a 1060 cheapest I could see on HUKD was this hotukdeals.com/dea…935 obviously expired now. But there are deals out there.

What did you expect for this much money? It's more than enough for Windows and a couple of your favourite games. Most gaming laptops at this price bracket have a single hdd. At least here you're getting both an SSD and HDD, and nothing stopping you from upgrading one of the drives at a later date.
Sometimes I think people expect everything for nothing...
Edited by: "hg80" 25th Aug

As far as I recollect, this is the lowest priced 1050 gaming laptop deal we've seen on HUKD where the machine comes with an SSD. I remember a £699 machine from John Lewis which got hot but that only had a slow HDD.

Having said that I personally wouldn't go for this. My current, two year old ASUS laptop (which I paid £563 for) has a really good IPS display and I don't ever want to go back to a TN screen.

There was talk that Dell might be dumping the much maligned TN screen on their Inspiron 7000 laptops in favour of a 1080p IPS panel but as far as I can tell, whilst this has happened in the US, it hasn't happened here.

Heat added even though it's not for me...

Think im might snap this one up my old laptop top seems to have finally given up aftet a few months of looming for a new onr

so torn between this and the Dell...

Personally i would get this one.
ASUS have been making gaming laptops for years and I believe they are better at it then it at Dell, also this is pretty much the same specced machine as the Dell, but with added bonus of a SSD and HDD instead of single SSD.
Whats not to love...

Can this handle 4k video editing?

Can this handle 4k video editing?


Depends if the program would use the GPU or CPU, can't see why not either way, just if the program could off load the work to the GPU then it would process faster and not bottleneck the CPU.

This, the dell, the omen with 1050ti or the Lenovo with the 1060 for 899. Please help me decide I'm fed up and need to pull the trigger. Skeptical of Lenovo just because of the customer services and warranty etc.

This is not enough for Windows and a couple favourite game, it's barely enough for Windows and a few programs

Is the 899 version of this worth the extra £200? It's got i7 7700, IPS screen, gtx 1050TI I'm seriously looking at this one instead as ticks all the boxes, could do with more ram though

Windows 10 Install is 12GB (clean), if you set it up correctly and remove constant system restore etc then it will never get much above 30-40GB.
This then gives you about roughly 80GB for programs and games...

if you want to reduce the windows 10 install further then try this windowscentral.com/how…int

£150-200 more would be more accurate. Medion for £850 and Lenovo for £900. Think Lenovo had a really nice screen and Medion was 17", but other specs similar. The 1060 really does give the 1050 a kicking so if I was getting a laptop for gaming at 1080p I really think an extra £150-200 would be worth it. Although you could then say, we'll pay an extra £150-200 on that and get a 1070 etc

30-40gb for program and games, is still reasonable, but some applications such as Photoshop can use well over 30gb temporarily from a feature known as 'scratch disk' which will give errors if it becomes full

ROTFL. You've been hanging around in these 'gaming laptop' threads for the last 12 month and you STILL haven't manage to buy one yet. You sure are one heck of a tyre kicker!

With any luck by 2021, you might have mustered up enough courage to actual buy a laptop rather than constantly tyre kicking! I won't hold my breath though....
