Confused?

I'm a troll because I think 8GB of RAM is bad for ultra gaming nowadays but feel 24GB is overkill for current gaming (but said it was nice to futureproof)?

16GB is the sweetspot right now.

Some 'expert'.

Why does it need 24gb of ram, why?

Probably a 16GB and an 8GB sticks of RAM
After yesterday evga's deal for 1100quid (New GTX1080 i7,32GB,4K screen,17 inches) everything now looks mediocre here.

There's still advantages over these deals over that (even if that was a super hot deal). I personally didn't go for it due to the weight and hating on 4k screen on laptops.

4k screens on laptops remind me of giant rims on SUVs, beyond pointless, included purely for show, detrimental to the function of the device, unnecessarily expensive and something that needs to just go away.

@EpicRickyC

I'll give you a hint... but psst don't tell it to anybody.
it's just between us only, ok?

You can lower the resolution on 4k screen.

I know you can The issue that causes normally is now the screen isn't sharp and becomes quite blurry. Even if you lower it to 1080p it will never look as sharp as a native 1080p monitor of the same size.

I had many issues with my 4k laptop and had to return it. The main issue being the integrated graphics was not powerful enough to run the desktop or browsers without lag. Laptops like your one with gsync won't have this issue but I'd still be put off my the weight as i would travel with mine.

my friend, you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.
If your screen would be sporting natively 4k out of the box, you wouldn't be able to read the icons from the screen keeping scale 1:1 that's why you are using upscaling which forces the windows environment to multiply artificially the size of font, windows, applications etc.
Nothing is blurry and your argument's are completely rubbish.
and I'm telling you this as a person that uses 28inch 5k display downscaled to UHD to make apps and browser "useable".
Gaming laptops are not a traveler's friend unless it's a Max-Q design.

It's not about that, it's the fact that it makes the laptop more expensive, the distance an average person sits from a laptop and the size of laptop screens make it difficult to tell the difference between 4k and 1080p, another reason would be battery life is reduced on laptops which have 4k screens.

I just feel considering it is difficult to tell the difference between 4k and 1080p at this screen size and from the distance a user will sit, it's not worth the extra cost and reduced battery life. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't complain about a 4k screen I just feel the money is better spent elsewhere on a gaming laptop.

I understand the scaling. All I'm saying is no matter what the scaling options I choose, my 4k laptop screen was never as sharp when lowering the resolution to 1080p compared to my native 1080p laptop. And it wasn't a small difference, the scaling made everything quite blurry. I find any laptop around 2.5kg to be fine for travelling as often as I do.
I’d rather have a 144hz screen over a 4K on a laptop
Looking for something like this but I’d rather have a 17” screen
Amazing price. 24GB of RAM is overkill for current gaming but nice to have for futureproofing.
That's a good price, I've paid nearly £1800 not that long ago (October) for MSI Titan Pro with GF1080, however I agree that 4K screen doesn't make much sense, hence why I went with 1080p@120hz panel. GF1080 wouldn't do much modern 4K gaming anyway (at least in 60fps)

To be fair with the £100 you save you can make it 16GB and then overall have a better laptop.
