Can you get the cashback and discount with buy now pay later as well?
950m isn't exactly gonna be anything special, be lucky to pull 30fps at 1080p for the majority of games

Still it's cheaper than anywhere else, heated

That 950 really lets it down. Look at the frame rates at 1366 x 768 on GTA V:



£570 is expensive for a office machine yet it's not powerful enough to run current AAA titles without cranking down the resolution and settings.

You'd be better to wait and try and get a 1050 based machine for under £700 (they've been close to that price already).

Very heavy laptop as well at close to 2.5kg.

950m is certainly not a gaming laptop IMO. It is equivalent to a MX150 which you can probably get for the same price.

A 1050 would be a massive improvement over this.

If memory severs you can't replace the Battery its a factory job ?
Yeh seems a good price but this really isn't a gaming laptop. It's mostly about GPU for games and a 2gb 950m can't cut the mustard for decent gaming. Just thought I'd flag it up in case any budding laptop gamers get too exctied.

You want to be looking for a 970m or ideally the new generation of nvidia chips: the 1050 or 1060s. 1060 will run most stuff really well at 1080p.

This one seemed like a really good deal to me. Aware it's more expensive but this will work for games in years to come. A 950m wasn't ever really good for gaming.

Would this laptop be decent for minor gaming, such as minecraft, stardew valley, gmod, etc? Asking for my girlfriend.

Thanks in advance

Got any cool NOW TV Freebie Codes knocking about anywhere?. ;-)
Ordered. Wasn't really looking for a gaming laptop but a medium/high end general purpose laptop.
Ordered, delivered, unfortunately not as pictured, no light up keyboard, no optical drive, not as pictured, customer service great, offered me cash discount to keep, then offered discount to switch model, just looking now for alternative, any suggestions?!?
Mine should have been delivered yesterday. They promised to have it delivered today only to find out they don't have any stocks. They offered me the Asus ROG GL553VD for the same price (normally £869). I said OK. Seems like the only difference is the graphics card. Should be delivered tomorrow morning.
Wow, you might have a bargain there then, wonder what my chances are of getting one too!

Do you think you'll still be able to claim back the £75?!?

I hope so. I did ask and they said yes. Also, the new one also has the £75 cashback offer. Also they should be refunding me £35 for messing up the order. After the order, I was asked to create an account and they said I'd get £20 off next order promo code, except the code was empty in the email. When I complained, they offered to refund me another £10.

Worth asking them.
Didn't get it at same price, met in the middle of £210 difference, just hope they process refund properly, my credit card taken a hammering, looks like I've ordered two laptop's at the minute!

Actually they wanted me to make some contribution, I said no !. Hopefully it will come tomorrow (3rd time lucky)
Well they offered me £60 off to start with and keep the laptop I have, as description was allegedly correct, but picture wasn't.

Then they offered me £60 off an alternative.

So bargained them up to £110 off eventually, so couldn't take it much more, mine was a different complaint to yours I suppose, you got lucky never receiving it!

The spec of that product code everywhere else apart from the image was what I received, so had to cave in for that.

Out of curiosity, was it your belief that the original deal had a dvd drive? That was the one spec that I thought was different, it doesn't have one, the alternative we both have does.

Mines getting picked up Friday, they are delivering with it HOPEFULLY but not certain, it's only guaranteed as next three working days!

They definitely had a DVD in one of the pictures. So I would have expected it to have one. I get the impression they are getting a 3rd party company to supply laptops so they don't have much control over the spec or the supply.
You got yours yet? Mine was out for delivery today despite asking for other one to be picked up tomorrow! Rearranged for tomorrow so hopefully will be in one go!

Yeah, came around 9 AM this morning. So far looks good. No issues. Hopefully they will credit they money they promised!.
They've only gone and realised the originally posted model, probably upon my return, but still pictured the wrong photos! It doesn't look anything like that!

Silver not black
No LED keyboard
No optical disc drive

Avoid, unless you want to purchase, complain about the wrong laptop and receive a discount off a replacement! Haha
