I’ve been considering a laptop in this price bracket for quite some time and the comments being left on each and every one leave me shaking my head. In no particular order I’ve seen;

The processor knocked
Complaints about the screen quality.
Screen size is too small
No SSD
SSD too small
Not enough RAM
Too heavy

Before commenting, do people actually stop and think about what they are getting for their money or are they just reeling off their knowledge of what they would like in a laptop in an attempt to look smart?

Is this cheaper than anywhere else? If yes vote hot, if not vote cold, quite simple really. If the panel, RAM or SSD is not to your liking pay more and get a better spec...

Many people vote cold unless it meets their own very specific requirements which seems daft to me. Does this product represent good value for what it is and if yes then vote hot. Why people have such difficulty voting hot on a product they don't actually want themselves seems odd to me.

The panel is EWV, which means it will have excellent viewing angles and colours. I have the exact same panel in GL503 and it's really good.
3kg is rather standard weight for 17" laptop, I think.

About the best bang for buck if you have £720 to spend heat added.

yes but sometimes paying an extra £xxx is much better value for money if you get something much better

I agree and your point is?

I have no problem with the op linking to this one and then someone else comes along with another link detailing a more exppensive machine but better spec'd. Then members can happily discuss the merits of "if it is worth the extra" or not...

Coming along and simply saying not worth it because it hasn't got XYZ is just annoying and pointless.

For another example.... Take a 4K 55" LED TV - Someone links to one for £499 and its cheapest around. I could say you get a much better picture with with OLED which is true but I fail to say add £1000 to that price though.

Again I stress, if this particular make and model and spec is the cheapest around vote hot. If you or anyone else wants to provide a link to a more costly machine with far superior specs great, we can discuss what extra you are getting for the money.
This was £584 on black Friday deals.
I bought one

I've never heard of EWV and can find very little about it online. Can you link to anything comparing these panels favourably to panel types typically known to have better viewing angles, colour accuracy etc (IPS, VA etc), or even suggesting that they don't suffer the usual TN downsides? I'd be interested to learn.

3kg seems like a lot to me but I've never had a 17" laptop and am accustomed to a 1.2kg ultrabook, so you're probably right.

No need to get your knickers in a twist. Folks can vote and comment however they like, within forum rules of course! telling others how to do so is a surefire way to look like a douche. I think people (including myself) are, quite reasonably, pointing out what they see as shortcomings. Some people find this helpful if they're in the market but hadn't thought about a particular feature, much less that it's omission may be pivotal. Not to say that this isn't a generally decent machine at a good price, because it certainly seems to be.

Sadly not. I just know this from experience. Maybe I'll try and do some comparison by myself in the near future.

sometimes it might be an extra £20 or so for a much better panel technology or a newer processor, which would then make the original deal a 'bad deal'

so the whole 'if its the cheapest for this laptop, vote hot' statement doesnt really apply if there are much better options for not much more. just because its the cheapest price for this laptop, doesnt make it a good deal.

a stupid example:

i can sell you my used sock for £20. its the cheapest price for one of my used socks, but isnt a good deal.

see what i mean?

Get the hp one and sell the headset, it's unbeatable for the money
I find the comments about quality extremely important. I am no expert and I don't want to be fooled into buying something that it's not worth the money. I actually do want to know if the laptop is too heavy as my back hurts. I do want to know if the graphics are good enough to play a game, or there is enough ram or not to handle a multitask. And btw, no I don't think 4gb of ram is enough for a gaming laptop, which means more cost to take into consideration.

So i urge those who know to please keep posting the comments and links to a better computer. Your expertise and knowledge is very much appreciated.

And if you don't want to read a "negative" post, I suggest you simply skip it, or simply go straight to the deal link. Please do not complain about people who are only trying to help, for free.

Thank you and Happy New 2018!
Thanks op, this is a good price for a 17" gaming laptop there arent that many around this price it seems. For those looking for a fast 17" laptop for photoshop, video, cad etc around this price then the dell inspiron 17 5000 (5750) with the new i7 8550u cpu and Radeon 530 is a better deal imo. Full HD IPS panel, 8gb ram expandable to 32GB, 1 TB HDD + 128gb SSD, USB-C port that can charge the laptop from a power brick and a DVD writer is currently 10% off at dell.co.uk with code on the site making it £719 incl vat and delivery; from china so 20 days . The graphics card cant compete for gaming but the processor is faster and uses much less power. It is much lighter although why they put such a small battery (42W) in it i will never understand. Voted hot btw.☺

Maybe, but I know for me a sub standard screen would be a deal breaker for me, if people would refuse to buy rubbish TN screens (and I'm not saying this one is, its a generalisation of TN screens),then maybe they would put in better panels which don't cost that much more. Stuff like RAM or SSD - you can upgrade yourself so not a big deal to me.
