This seemed like a great price for a machine with a 4K Ultra HD screen and a solid overall spec. 4K laptops are still a niche product, so there's less competition and therefore less price pressure. But this looked good...

Spec:
- Core i7-7500U dual-core processor
- 16GB RAM
- 256GB SSD
- 1TB HDD
- 15.6" 4K Ultra HD Screen
- Dedicated GeForce GTX960M 4GB graphics
- Windows 10 Home 64-bit

It has been this price for a while. Nicely specified but very noisy by all accounts, also has a pentile matrix screen which is not true UHD.

There is not only £2 difference, have a look at RAM 8GB vs 16GB ?! Heat!

Am I the only one who wouldn't pay 1k for a nearly 3 year old graphics card?

I've also never known an Asus Notebook that wasn't faulty or didn't eventually combust... (I've owned 3 faulty and know of two that set on fire)

The new Dell XPS 15s have GTX 1050. Also in my opinion, the Dell machines are a more "professional" machine. I see lots of Dell XPS's in offices, I've never seen an Asus. Of course this increase in quality and performance is reflected in the price tag.

Nope. I wouldn’t either.

Then again, I wouldn’t bother with any dGPU in a laptop.

I picked up a reasonably priced xps15 from dell oulet. They're refurbished but mine came in perfect condition.
15% student discount too (see the NUS card deals on here).
See this guy for comparison (£1028 after student discount)

I bought a refurbished XPS 15 after trying one and it's a decision I've not regretted, nothing else comes close.

this i7 is a dual core and it is an old gpu, sure it maybe be capable, however you can get better laptops for cheaper price than this. I would recommend hp omens if you are thinking of buying a laptop at this price range

Totally agree. Plus it's a wierd combo - if you want it for gaming, you probably don't want the 4K screen, and you probably want some sort of cooling.
I'm pretty sure you can get a decent i5/i7 processor with a GTX1060 for the same price as this, with the GTX1060 being a desktop version rather than a mobile chip

Whenever i see a laptop with 16GB of RAM it makes me feel old and think 'i remember the day when 2 GB was cutting edge'. Am i that past it?!

how is that hot?

My 3 year old or so XPS15 has a 750m.
In the time I've had it, I've kept telling myself I'll make time for some games - haven't at all. The 750m powers 3x 4k screens fine (albeit 30hz on one due to HDMI 1.4 limitation.)
I am hankering for an upgrade - hoping they do bring a new XPS15 to go along with the new 13 - and probably will get one with a good bit better graphics card; but doubt I'll make use of it in reality.

I spend a hell of a lot more time using my laptop than my transport.

Hinge on these are crap! No Netflix in bed 👀

Doesn't quite fit in either category... Better gaming laptops around, and much better ultrabooks too.

New HPs are out with 4k for reasonable prices. The beautifully mastered spectre x360 with 8th gen i5 for 1,170£ at their student store. Also new Lenovo yogas emerging... Not looked at much else

Can you actually see the difference on a 15.6" screen between 4K and 1920x1080 ?

I would rather buy a Omen 15 and a 49" RGWB True 4k Tv

Yes. The first thing you will notice is that many of your programs will have blurry-looking text on the 4K screen, and older programmes might not scale properly at all (and consequently be impossible to use unless you like staring at a postage stamp). Some programs even tried to change the scaling on my behalf, resulting in other applications changing size when I didn't want them to. Windows laptops just don't seem ready for 4K yet.

I returned a new 4K laptop a couple of months ago to get a 1080P one, and I'm so much happier running everything at 100% scaling, without having to tweak everything so I can use it without zoom glasses or feel like my eyes had lost the ability to focus. Also, on a 15" display, the difference between true 4K and 1080P video is barely noticeable at normal viewing distances. Hardly any games will run well enough at 4K on this particular laptop anyway, so running at a native 1080P resolution is better than 1080P scaled to fit on a 4K screen, as it tends to blur everything rather than just doing a simple 1->4 pixel mapping.

Thanks, interesting and amusing

No Thunderbolt 3 on this model, makes it a no-go for me

Why didn't you just change the resolution down to 1080 rather than buying another one?

Honestly tho, windows might still be adapting but at least it will be future proofed

Get new ones, my other half is an optician so I can get 75% off if I ever need them but I never do regardless of how good I look in them(in my own opinion of course).
