Nicely specced laptop. Slightly more ram than you usually get at this price point.

I would be expecting to get an i7 for that price bracket and a few quid more and it little bit less ram that is possible on the same site.
Really? Post some deals with an i7 at this price! Most gaming laptop's under a grand are i5's that I've seen.

I haven't seen a 1060 & i7 that cheap very often maybe once or twice not recently.
Fed up of people on this site thinking they know all when 99% don’t realise an i7 is rubbish for gaming whereas the i5 is better

"Better" ? I think you've sentenced that wrong. a I7 out performs a i5 in gaming. a i5 might be more budget ideal with lower end chipsets but it certainly isn't better.

No it doesn’t, doesn’t affect gaming at all, it’s for doing such things as computer game design etc.
An i7 would actually heat higher than the i5 when gaming.

Is that so. well i'm not in the mood to argue the case why having more cores and hyperthreading at a higher clock speed will produce more frames for your gaming experience. but feel free to present a counter case for this rather lengthy benchmarking video.

Maybe you're fed up of being wrong, not people "thinking" that they know better.
Nice, you get proven wrong so you stoop to really bad insults. Stop supplying misinformation about products, your comments may very well get people to make the wrong choice about their ideal builds.

The purpose of this video paul was to show that i7's do in most situations out perform the i5's of the same gen, as his comment was aimed at all i7's i searched for the first topic i could find regarding this matter. If i really wanted to disprove his misguided personal opinion that badly i would have benchmarked myself. And i'm sure this video would have been sufficient enough to highlight the point. If you're concern is uneven match ups, I'm pretty sure the HQ verison of this I7 Still betters the desktop verison of this.
