Seems like a good deal, not sure on box.co.uk as a retailer, any thoughts?

Bought from them before, good service for me. They are quite a big name also.

Ditto, bought components and was pleased with the service.

Big fan of Ryzen but this chip gets stomped on by Intels 6th gen mobile, never mind the last gen 8's. Its a poor fit with a 1650.
"15.6" Full HD 120Hz IPS Screen"

AFAIK, IPS screens can't be 120 Hz. They most likely meant IPS-level screen (a marketing term for a TN screen that supposedly has a similar level of quality to an IPS). This is misleading marketing.

Edit: turns out my knowledge was outdated and there are now true 144 Hz IPS desktop monitors even. If LAPTOPS can have 120 Hz IPS, however, might be a different story. I don't really know.

What you're saying is that it's even worse than you imagined?

come on guys, this will be fine for moba type games at 1080p 120hz at decent settings, why the hate just because it does not play all games on ultra at 1080p @120hz it still is very good for some peoples needs.

Performance is poor for the price. That is the point we are making. sure some people would be happy with the laptop, but they would be more happy with a better laptop for the same price.

Just wondering which one though?

I think your deal is a decent one, I'd be tempted by this though:

ebuyer.com/883…006

box.co.uk/300…tml

with a 8300H cpu (slightly better) and a 1060 6gb GPU (much better) also prefer the look of the medion myself. Includes 3 year warrant, tomb raider game and bullguard software for anyone interested.

Also comes with RGB mechanical backlit keyboard

Always found them to be very good and dispatch is lightning quick. Bought a processor off them a couple of months ago late at night and was in my hands by 10am the next day.

Yes. No better than atu screen with the same terrible colour accuracy just better viewing angles that's all.

Terrible screen

You can get 120hz IPS panels. Whether they laptop size I don't know, haven't bothered looking but I assume so. My old LG TV had a 120hz IPS panel, as is the sk9500 I'm looking at.

Really like Medion laptops...German built and very robust. I use a Akoya one and its great.
Do people actually game on these over a desktop?

Do you game with a controller or the keyboard and mouse?
Edited by: "Terry-Tibbs" 12th Jul
What would this be like for recording games using a capture device and editing videos.

Or could someone recommend another choice?

To be honest, nearly all my gaming is total war strategy games, so keyboard and mouse....my laptop is touchscreen so occasionally i use that too.

This Medion one for the same price is a much better choice: ebuyer.com/883…eal

The graphics card is about 50% better and it also comes with an extra 1 TB HDD that the Asus doesn't have. TBH the only reasons to get the Asus would be the brand (Asus is good, dunno about Medion), the fact that the Asus' screen is 120 Hz vs. 60 Hz, and the "free" controller, which you could get separately if you need.

Yes if you don't have room for a desktop

It's usually for people who are constantly on the move, but still want to game. In my specific case, I'm looking for a laptop with at least a GTX 1060 so I can do VR in my living room, where there is space for roomscale, rather than my tiny room, without having to set up a permanent desktop in the living room.
