Nice machine. Not sure you will get it for much less in a month. Could be a bit of a scramble then anyway.
I has dropped down £70 quid I think, I've considered this one before. For anyone interested, this is fully fledged 1660ti, not MaxQ version and ram is 2666mhz. Heat from me.

I think this is the same one? currys.co.uk/gbu…tml


Curry's will price match! They also have a thing on at the moment where they will refund the difference if it is cheaper on black Friday, not entirely sure if this will work with the price match but definitely worth asking

Also only has a 256GB SSD. Do we think Amazon will refund the difference if their price drops on Black Friday?

Hard to say, to be fair, I'd say it's better to hold off until the Black Friday weekend with a purchase of a gaming laptop.I think there is a new gen of mobile processors dropping soon so retailers may be clearing their stocks soon.

Hi,
on what basis you "think" a new gen of CPU is about to be realeased?
Is there any leak or article I can consult, please?

It's Intel! There is always a new gen around the corner with them. I wish AMD's offering on the mobile market got better so we can get a better competition driving laptop prices down. 'Soon' is just my own, personal prediction - sorry I didn't make that clear

Where did you see they'll price match black Friday?? Was it in store? I looked on their site and couldn't find it

Just had a look myself as I couldn't remember where I'd seen it - appears I was a bit out! They will refund the difference up to 7 days after your purchase, so perhaps wait until closer to the time.

Can you find something with the same specs or better at a similar price point? I'd be interested

Yeah I mean the Acer helios two days ago was better...I've seen similarly specced stuff to this for lower prices on here.
What % difference between maxQ and non maxQ? Thanks

I think that finding these specs just about 1k is attractive enough to press the button.
True the Helios had a better CPU (not sure if it was a 17"too),had less RAM and costed £100 more but that deal expired so.. probably this is the next best thing after it???
I voted hot for both, but is not like an "this one OR the other one" you know what i mean?

Yeah sure I'm not trashing it, but don't quite see it as hot as others do. Yeah the Acer was 17inch. I dont really worry about ram; easily upgraded.

Max Q are reduced in power so slightly less performance compared to non MaxQ variant. Go for non MaxQ/P variant!
Thanks buddy!
Anybody thinking of getting this laptop or a PC with 1660 Ti.

This laptop is great value considering you get everything all in one. 1660 Ti in this laptop is similar to desktop variant. Power adaptor is 230w.
