I'll never understand why someone would want this as a laptop.

My first thought too and strange it’s paired with a hex-core chip (the CPU seems disproportionate compared to the GPU). I would have expected a 1070 for this price, especially having to drive that panel at 144Hz (or close to it).
I'd expect a 1070 minimum for this price. Cold for me.

It's only a 1080p screen, the 6gb 1060 should easily be able to drive 1080 at 144hz
This or the new Razer laptop coming out. Clearly the price on this is about a grand cheaper . Is this with an ips screen?
My friend got similar one with 1070 GPU and i must say it worths the money. Solid built quality.
Honestly how is this not cold???

Maybe. But does that mean that the £1600 price is justified for a 1060? I don’t think so.
Baaad price lol
I'd be all over it if if came with a 1070.
I need educating i think.
Why would anyone need a laptop at this price point for gaming, regardless of spec?

Wouldnt it be cheaper to get an xbox and buy your mate(s) an extra TV each?
any recommendations for others?

You can't carry a TV and Xbox around, and depending on preference PC games are alot better?

To play games you can't on your Xbox/PS4? Also portable and not everyone has room for a tower in their home, or they only have one TV and it is constantly in use by the rest of the family.

I got my laptop for £1300 and quite often work away, so nice to have something I can game on. Also house is full of kids stuff, so the man cave with tower will have to wait.
yeh using it for work as well makes sense.

Space wise tho, given its twice the price of a mini itx build with monitor id make space!
I empathise with the kids using space, my last place i had to game in the attic. Freezing in winter and boiling in summer.

Re the consoles, really the only seperation in games (if we are talking playing on a laptop) is xenonauts or galciv which even an intel igp can manage! (although such games themselves are worth having a PC for)

Im not trolling btw, ive just always been a bit confused over the benefits and costs of a gaming laptop. Its more curiosity

As someone who has a Dell G5 with almost the exact same specs (worse screen, but a lot cheaper) I can maybe give some insight into why. I got mine for work, I do a lot of design/media creation work, mainly after effects, illustrator, premiere pro, etc. So needed a decent cpu paired with a good gpu. I needed something to replace my old i5 at work, but also have an old i7 920 gaming pc at home that is getting a bit long in the tooth. I also do a lot of work from home. So it was cheaper and much more convenient to get a single portable computer to replace 2 old towers. Both in power, and in terms of time. I don't have to worry about settings or crossed linked files, or 2 sets of software licences. Do work at work, pack it up, do work at home, then play games.

It is a huge time/productivity saver.

And IMO for what I needed, an i7 8750H with GTX 1060, was a much better choice than an i7 7700HQ with a GTX 1070, as what I use is more CPU intensive than GPU.

Yes. If you're considering the Razer, then obviously cost is not so much of a consideration. Have you looked at the Gigabyte Aero 15x and MSI GS65?

Only game this would be useful for is counter strike in which it would be quite balanced between GPU and CPU. I'd rather it just had 12gb ram and put a 1070 and less SSD based storage.

I haven't, no. Now that you've mentioned it, I'll take a look. Razer is too expensive atm, I mean I could pick it up but is it really worth it when other alternatives are available...
It is so funny the "lol gud 4 minesweeper" comments on these kind of laptops, like a GTX 1060 is no better than some crappy Intel integrated GPU.

PCMR has never rung more true than it does these days.

They're all pricey, though not quite as pricey as the Razer! And no real custom build alternatives available yet, so you're kind of limited to choosing from the pre-built options. I'm currently leaning towards the Alienware 13. That gorgeous OLED screen is calling my name
