How does this laptop stand up to a i76700? Or one with a 980m graphics card? Ive always had consoles but now looking into pc gaming.

CPU won't be much different in gaming. 980m is about 20%-30% faster than the 970m. a 970m will give you better than your used to on the ps4 but a 980m will be needed if you plan on maxing most stuff out.

Wonder what the cost of a 1070 equipped laptop will be when they come out...

​buy desktop not a laptop. around £1000 and you can get i5 6690k which is best i5 that performs as good as i7's but it's much cheaper. you can also get 980Ti 6GB which was 2nd best card out there before 1000 series came out. 16GB RAM, 5 additional fans and 3 yrs warranty

It's Windows 8.1, presumably by the time you get it, free upgrade to Windows 10 will have expired?

Quite a bit more as old stock 970m laptops are already dropping, but a 1060 should outperform a 970m at hopefully not much more than current 970m prices. The 1060 replaces the 960m and new generation is usually about 20% more expensive than previous one (before price drops on old stock taken into account), so that should put 1060 around pre-drop 970m prices. Low £ isn't going to help though. Current stocks were imported when £ was stronger. New stocks will have to be purchased at lower exchange rate. That could easily add another 10-15%.

​Have seen a i7 with 980ti for 1089 on ebay. Would that be something to go for?

​ No, you can get better. You also want an i5, no point spending extra on the i7. If your not yo sure exactly what you need, go to a company like Novatech, Dino pc etc and ask them what they'd recommend.

Why not build your own PC? You'll save hundreds.
Every part you buy will have some kind of warranty so that's no big deal.

Also a 980 Ti is gonna lose performance pretty fast in DX12 and Vulkan games which are basically the future.

I'd personally go for an i5 + AIB RX 480.
will probably cost around £650-700

Will run every game at ultra graphics at 1080p and most at 1440p as well.
