I'm not that well up on graphics card but isn't this one really lame in such an expensive and powerful laptop? I've just bought a £600 laptop with the same card.

To be honest the graphic card is not what is making this laptop expensive. And remember this is not meant to be a gaming laptop anyway. For most things apart from gaming, the included card is more than enough.

I know the graphics card isn't making it expensive, it's the graphics card that's letting the machine down. Why would anyone compromise on such an expensive laptop?

I think the whole point is keeping the design as slim as possible. So the logical compromise would be on the graphics card. I believe a more powerful card is going to require much more space for cooling devices hence making the laptop bulkier.

I agree. I brought the dell g5 for less than £600 and this has the 1060 which is a better graphics card!
It's not a laptop for serious gaming and there would be no point adding a power hungry graphics card to it. Agree, the price is quite high but that's what you pay for a very competent machine in a portable form factor. Having used this laptop for over two years, I would struggle to replace it with anything else. The 4k screen is a joy to use and it's essentially a tablet/phone quality screen on a laptop. The only thing I would change is the wifi adaptor which is easy enough to do
This machine isn't for gaming, you can tell that by the screen, 4k and 60hz. No mobile GPU is driving that well. Real gaming laptops have 1080p 120hz+ screens.

This machine is also pointless as a workstation, that i9 throttles in this chassis under a heavy workload. And you can overclock it...why?

This machine is better with a 6core, save some cash get the i7.
