chilly in here

I'm considering buying this, not for aming but for software development. Will be doing some machine learning so need a reasonable GPU. Appreciate that the next generation GPUs are available in the later laptops, but think a 960M will do fine.
Any suggestions on alternatives for the same money?

Can't understand how this is so cold! This is a good deal, can't see many better offers...

Yeah, I've been considering this for a while, can't see much better for the price. I've gone for it now anyway, it should be more than enough for my requirements

You really want the 10 series gtx graphics as these older 9 series are much worse.

There's about a £400-£500 price increase for a 10 series, so comparing is a waste of time.
For the price this is still a good deal

Appreciate your advice, obvious that the 1060 is better, but I don't need it for my use
Posted the deal because in my opinion is a good deal for the spec, not because it's the best spec.
Sure your advice will help others though

I accept that similar laptops with the Nvidia 1050 are about £150 more expensive.

If cost is a factor, you might want to wait for a laptop with Nvidia's brand new entry level MX150 (aka Nvidia 1030) Pascal-based GPU. Apparently this cheap GPU comes with 2GB of DDR5 and performs on a par with the 960M but with a much lower power draw.

Of course, the way the £ is falling away now, you might just want to buy this now while our beloved currency is actually worth something.
