Not a bad deal, but the gpu is a bit... not great. It's only a 2gb 1050 so you might struggle with some games on decent graphics
been plenty of ROG laptops with 4gb version of that card available for about the same price recently. As the poster above says, it will struggle. Its all the gpu with gaming and this is a bit weak

There is an option for £50 more with an SSD. So worth considering.
Not worth it. Can get better gpu at this price
The 2gb 1050 wouldn't bother me so much to be honest, I'm much more drawn to the 7700HQ cpu. Even the lack of SSD isn't a real issue but the breaker for me would be the screen - most reviews I see for these suggest it's pretty poor.

A struggle to term it a "gaming" laptop with a 2GB GPU at the end of 2017.

Most deals are over now but if gaming is your thing you can certainly wait for something better. Got a 1060 laptop for 669p but i guess got realy lucky.

To be fair, that was a price glitch and this is a deal. Not everyone can sit around waiting for the next price glitch.

Without a glitch, you are unlikely to find a laptop with better GPU for this price.

MSI GP62MVR 7RFX with 1060 for 800p couple of days ago was not a glitch. If you can't wait, sure go ahead and buy this. Its not bad at all.

That from Very deal? I stand corrected in that regard.

I also got the Dell deal you are talking about. Haven't had much time to play with it but its a nice piece of kit I think. Traded in my HP which felt flimsy compared to the Dell.
Yeah love dell's thermal management and build quality but ofc its rather heavy. Also thinking of swapping the screen in the future with a more color accurate one.
I’ve been looking around for over 2 months. Was a little tempted at the dell 7000 Inspiron with be WMR headset but since it had the 1050 2gb I was suspicious. Also looked at the hp omen with the i5 7300cpu and 1050 2gb gpu.for £700 but decided against it awaiting a better deal with maybe a 1060 or 1050 ti with the WMR headset.
Good deal for a 7700HQ laptop. Decent quad core CPU (for a laptop). Anyone who needs to do video editing or anything similarly intensive would find get good use from it.
