Gaming without limits on 1050... good luck
It's a decent price for what it is. Heat added.
1050 is similar to a 970m so this is a good price for a new laptop

No its not, the 1050 in laptops is slightly nerfed to the desktop version. the 970m is over 30% faster.

Check the benchmarks of the games you want to play, games like fallout 4 and witcher 3 will need settings turned down to keep it smooth on a 1050 mobile

At this price, its good for the spec as its not far off being a top spec laptop...

Performance is between the 960m and 970m (though closer to the 960m) if you look at the gaming benchmarks. The Ti is comparable to the 970m though but not the standard 1050. The 1060 is on a whole different level....that would be the one I'd go in 2017 if I wanted a 'gaming' type laptop.

This is the same spec, cheaper with the 10% off code and comes with a £100 Xbox Elite controller. Therefore this ain't a great deal unless you don't like HP.

When I click on that I get:
"Thank you for visiting HP Store.

That doesn't really fill me with confidence about HP ...
According to scan.co.uk this model comes with a 2GB GTX 1050, so I'm not sure if Amazon has it right?

I suspect it is 2gb, though you could buy it then kick up a fuss. Wonder if you could haggle £50-100 off...

I am waiting for a 1050 Ti laptop myself, should be as fast as a 970M.

You're not really comparing like for like though. The Omen has a really crappy screen and the keyboard gets very warm during use (potential deal breaker if you do alot of typing). There are more to laptops that just the CPU/GPU.....

I agree. I think it's currently the wrong time to buy a 1050 based laptop as this is simply the first wave of releases (unless of course you can get it for a crazy price). Like you I would also wait for a Ti or price drops on the 1060.
Nice spec machine but also concerned about the 1050 perf.
Likely a heavy beast of a thing with that hdd in there too.
Some good numbers/benches, etc here.

1050 is a good card, especially with 4gb of ram. Not the best card, but for £800 this will play most games at high or ultra at 1080 with decent frame rates. If you can find better, please post. 1050m Ti would be nice, but would cost more. 1060, 1070, 1080, etc...

I think thats a mistake from amazon, as stated above it will be the 2gb version, its not a bad price for the spec but i think its worth saving another £100-200 more for a better spec
this needs to be expired as price is back up to £999!
Can someone confirm if this model has an IPS display? Thanks
