I think it's a bit too expenisve for laptop with great processor, but with graphics card on par with NVIDIA 1060

Too expensive for me.

If rather go for the equivalent Intel/Nvidia model and save a couple of hundred quid

Decent, the Freesync, 256Gb ssd + 1TB HDD, large 17" display and higher end processor justify the price imo, although an 8GB RX 580 would've helped settle the deal.

It's on the face of it a good deal but it was overpriced by several hundred to start with if thus were closer to £1200 it'd be a good deal to me this is still too expensive for a non top of the range video chip

Kind of feel people are dismissing this because of it being AMD. I'd take this over the Intel/Nvidia equivalent as this can do more.
That's for me though I realise everyone's use case is different.

Not the case for me personally. It's just overpriced for the performance you get. The RX 580 isn't any faster than the GTX 1060 and the processor, while great for video editing/content creation, isn't that much better than say an i7 7700HQ for gaming.

It's just not worth the extra money.

Now if it was a Vega based GPU, I'd be interested

That basically backs up everything I said. Everything other than just gaming it is far superior and it can play games great too.
If you're doing gaming only then sure the Intel option works. As I said it depends on the use case and for me it isn't just gaming. I'd never spend this much on a laptop for just gaming.

I think you're missing my point

I was challenging your assumption that people are dismissing this laptop because it's AMD. I don't think that's the case, - certainly not for me personally.

This is a laptop aimed at gamers and although the processor is well equipt for content creation/design etc, the screen isn't (middling colour accuracy and gamut). That processor in this laptop is overkill imho.

At the end of the day, the price is the biggest problem. For a gaming laptop with GTX 1060 levels of performance, its a couple of hundred quid too much.
