That's a range not a model. Think it's a 2700u

Let's focus on the GTX 1060 for a moment which in a laptop can run most AAA games with high or highest settings at 1080p. Does having that GPU make a proper gaming laptop? I'd say yes it does. You can get laptops with that GPU for a little under a grand. £2k is a bit excessive imo.

The GTX 1050 on the other hand is more of a medium or low settings at 1080p card so I'd agree that's more of a 'laptop that will happily run games' than a 'gaming laptop'.
It's deals like this that honestly make me wonder what makes HUKD tick. There's nothing wrong with the laptop per se, but it's at the very upper end of the price spectrum for a 2gb non-ti 1050 machine.

Don't be fooled by the RRP. It might have been worthy of this price in 2016 but we've seen better spec'd 1060s for less/same in recent months and as the tech gets older it's guaranteed we'll see more.

No additional storage means that it'll need addressing if you start adding games or recording your sessions and thus increased cost and if you're not a gamer then there's tons of better options for portability and battery life.

I know that sounds a bit old man, but do some research on what you want before diving on this.
Poor spec for the price tbh, regardless of the discount from RRP

Google seems to think AMD Ryzen 7-2700U.

Pretty crap attitude when you're the one that posted the deal.

Nevertheless, nice find

Cheers
Just bit the bullet on this, seemed like a really good deal and perfect for my needs. Added benefit of 2yr guarantee as well hopefully it'll be a worthwhile investment for a five year old laptop. Either way, great find OP

Is this the desktop Ryzen 7 ?
Anyone know how the cpu compares to Intel's?
Almost the same from i5 / Ryzen 5 upwards. Intel is better before people jump on that statement but only by around 10% in speed.
Out of my price range but for those specs coupled with said price, heat added.
Would this be any good for playibg computer games
I’m torn between this and the Hp Pavillion that was posted yesterday from Pc world at 499. I’m not very tech savvy but which would you say is a better bet, it’s for a secondary school child. Many thanks

That HP is a nice spec machine for the money, for a secondary school child that is probably the best choice.
I'm really tempted. Anyone know if it's got a backlit keyboard and if its made of plastic ?
Also does anyone know the screen panel type?
Thanks

Not too wise to compare the two just about mhz's and cores:

notebookcheck.net/AMD…tml
in here it said it more like a current i5, the low power version.
so answering the prev. question its in between the current i3 and i5.

Would this be any good for playibg computer games
yes, but not the newest ones, and some cases you have to turn the graphic settings to minimum.
surprised this is getting heat, generally 1050 machines are poo-pood from a great height

It's not really for gaming, more of a light weight laptop for work, with reasonable battery life.

It would be overkill for all but the most graphic intensive games (the majority of which have a age 15 or above age certificate!)
I would recommend Blizzards StarCraft 2, which is now free to play.
The only problem with a laptop is you are limited to upgrades - very few (this model included) allow GPU upgrading, which means you can't swap out the parts to improve performance like you can with a desktop. One of the disadvantages to pay for convenience of the laptop format!
I gave up chasing the latest hardware and settled for a console instead, the kids all have laptops (& desktops!), but as they are i5 "business" laptops they can't really handle anything outside of a browser game (low res SC & Planetside is no fun!)

its posted as 'bang per buck' which basically means cheap but powerful
thats not this laptop as it stands
perhaps it has better build/battery/screen etc - if thats the case then it may be good but its not being 'offered' here as such
I guess it depends on the definition - this should be classed as a laptop that can play games, not a gaming laptop - a "proper" gaming laptop would be in the region of £2k, anything less and you are making too many compromises...

While it's good to be specific, there are only 3 Ryzen 7 laptop CPUs, one's unnecessary for a gaming laptop (Pro 2700U) and the other hasn't been in any products yet (2800H) so it's a pretty safe bet they're talking about the 2700U whenever you see "Ryzen 7" said in a laptop context.

2 year old gpu. The technology is long overdue an upgrade.
Asus for some reason does not sound like a quality brand.

Half agree. This isn't a gaming laptop. 1050 is not going to cut the mustard.

I don't think you need to spend 2k for a gaming laptop however. Can get something decent with a GTX1060 for 1100/1200. That knocks most games out at 1080p resolution in high details . Can even get a gtx1070 laptop under 2k which again is exceptional at full HD and even allows for some QHD gaming.
The 1050 will run some games, but it is not going to get you any kind of reasonable 1080p performance.

Gtx1050 laptops are worse than comparing it to ps4 pro and xbox one x costing half the price.
Will this be able to run oculus/vive etc?
so much heat for 1050???

You're missing my point. It's impossible to predict the community feeling sometimes on here - there's been way, way better deals for similar laptops than this in the last couple of months that go cold or get no heat, then a really ordinary deal like this goes ballistic. Just find it really curious and it must make picking a good deal out a bit of a nightmare for the uninitiated.
Throttling? I would avoid personally

Not sure what everyone else does for work, most office jobs can be done with an ancient i3 or similar and a copy of MS Office, no need for a discrete graphics card!

its nowhere near the upper end - its at the upper end of a crappy laptop with a 1050 but nowhere near the upper of a decent machine whih has one
too many OMGZISAGAMERZ types think a laptop is the gpu and nothing else matters - not everyone is so blinkered

Aye. My 6yr old Lenovo has a Core 2 duo and integrated graphics and does perfectly fine for Office 2016, OneDrive, Remote Desktop. I've never once thought "man, I'd fly through this in half the time if I had a recent CPU & GPU". That said, everybody's individual context is different and I imagine those working in CAD or image processing would benefit more than I would from higher specs.
