A while back I posted in Ask about any Nvidia gtx 1060 equipped laptops being available for sub £1000. This appears to be the answer to that question!

This is a very good spec laptop for £999.99, which will be very good at playing the most recent games at close to, if not at max detail.

You get:

i5-7300hq
12gb Ram
256gb SSD
Full HD 15.6 inch screen
Nvidia GTX 1060 3gb

This is probably the best value pascal equipped laptop at under a grand so far. I'd be tempted if I didn't pick a warehouse deal up on a 17inch version last week.

Don't be discouraged that it is the 3gb version of the 1060. From the benchmarks I've seen, there isn't too much difference between this and the 6gb version.

You can also redeem a free copy of For Honor or GR:Wildlands

slightly different spec there, one ram slot is soldered on oddly - hopefully an 8gb
Edited by: "brilly" 29th Mar 2017
Cold from me for the 12gb - 8gb soldered onto main board and 4gb in single socket available to expand. I just do not get why you would limit memory bandwidth when the rest is so well specified.
Its a scorching deal but that soldered RAM stick would be a show stopper for me. What company does that in this day and age?!?

Cold just because Amazon posted the screen size in cm... we use inches in the UK. Thank god for Article 50!

Joking aside, not too bad price for a semi decent gaming laptop.

Looks like they've had a sweep of cuts across the range. The source of this deal is an Asus ROG employee on twitter. Thought this was the pick of the bunch!

So what makes you think this is a fake seller? It says "Dispatched from and sold by Amazon."
Usually the fakes want you to call them direct so that they can bypass the Amazon and Paypal protection.
Do these come with UK keyboards or are they USA sourced?

re:us vs uk, you may have a point as picture does show a US keyboard but may just be a stock photo as others show us keyboards but 'answers' section replies UK
Cold, I got one a lot cheaper. I paid a homeless child a pound to cause a distraction and walked out with all of PC World, including some floppy disks son!!!!
A couple of considerations (this is still a good deal): This is a gaming laptop with only 190gb of usable space (when you take windows, plus the fact SSD's wear quicker if under 25% capacity) so you're going to need to buy and fit another hard drive if you're looking to do anything like Gaming e.g. Witcher 3 is like 60gb.
Plus, the i5 will be a bottleneck to the 1060.
I'd strongly consider this one for £200 less - amazon.co.uk/gp/…-21 or amazon.co.uk/gp/…-21 for the bigger screen

depends on your needs, more storage can be easily added but better graphics capability cant

I did a bit of reading about the i5. Mine is actually an i5-6300hq, and from what I've seen it isn't as much of a bottleneck as you'd think. The GPU does most of the work for gaming, and even though it's an i5 it's still adequate.this will vary by game though. Forza Horizon brims along at 70fps on ultra for me.

Also, this has a spare slot for a 2nd hard drive, although I couldn't tell at a glance if that is the m2 slot spare or the standard slot. Depends what the 256gb drive is installed in.

I think you should be OK mate. Just don't try them all at the same time.
i5?! Nah.
iAmLegendFam

i5?! Nah.


It's a proper quad-core i5 and you don't need any more than that for most programs. An i7 would give you hyperthreads, but that's only about 15-20% performance boost for quite a lot more cash - and a lot of programs can't multi-thread well enough to see any difference anyway.
I bought one of these in blackfriday last year the GL702VM and it was absolutely awful, the trackpad had a mind of its own, sent it to get repaired and the customer service from ASUS is appalling.

Took 3 weeks and they sent it back completely formatted for a track pad change and with the trackpad fitted crooked in the body. Installed BF1 and within 30 mins it was overheating to the point the laptop thermally cut out. Thank god amazon have a great returns policy, 100% do not recommend this level of ASUS laptop.

You've got to source that bottleneck claim. I really can't see how that i5 will cause a bottleneck. Might be wrong.
