This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Been looking for a new gaming laptop and specs wise this seems to be the cheapest RTX 2070 I can find by a few hundred quid.

Seems to take about 2 weeks to get built and shipped out but for the specs I think the wait is worth it.

Voucher code seems to knock about £30 off

I had a cyberpower laptop that was £1500 had nothing but problems and they kept fobbing me off with excuses, sent it for repair and they did nothing to it, was still broken, they're useless, avoid.

Decent enough spec but damn that's one ugly laptop

That's one powerful VTech.
Anyone had a pc from these guys before?
I don't understand why it's always 8gb ....I mean it sucks if you want to upgrade as well especially when most include 2x 4gb so you'd have to replace more if you wanted to aim higher than 16gb...

But with this it's 8gb 1x which gets rid of dual channel performance ?! I'm so confused.

You can add another 8gb module for 32 quid.

Dang! Their reviews are so good on trust advisor. Shame!
Over the years I have had 4 desktop gaming pc's, the last 2 were liquid cooled and have a gaming laptop at the mo. I have never had any hassle with Cyberpower. Any questions just join their forum and ask any questions about the build that you are after. I have had terrific service from them and would not hesitate to use them in the future.

Seems like a rather good price.

What problems did it have?

I’m guessing it’s thermal-related as that plagues most gaming machines but never gets fixed. I could be wrong.

Yeah, this a pretty safe bet for 99% of gaming laptops.

I feel bad for folks going in blind on these laptops, thinking they're gonna get all the benefits of a desktop, but portable.
As standard, it comes with only a 256GB ssd. You will need to add a 1TB hdd (£41). Also you can't have both a SATA ssd and a hdd in this system. So you need to deselect the SATA ssd (-£17) and then add a 240GB A400 m.2 ssd drive (+£26). So for the standard storage solution (256GB ssd and 1TB hdd) it is £50 more.

Question whether you really need a gaming laptop before jumping in rather than a mid-range gaming-capable one and a desktop. I’ve had gaming laptops for a while and inevitably never really move them as much as I plan to (as they weigh so much) so they end up resigned to a desk and left plugged in. Also if you get an Alienware while it will cost more, you also get much better resale values.

I myself bumped the SSD up to 500gb. I wasn't aware of the sata hdd/ssd conflict but if I need more space down the line I'll just add an m2 ssd

As stock the setup comes with 1 stick of 8gb ram, it's £32 to add another one and make use of dual channel.

My configuration brought me over £1000 ex vat which lets you pick up the freebie Corsair mouse. Its a £20 jobbie on Amazon but may aswell

Problem is that doesnt tell us much because some people are actually stupid enough to try gaming with the laptop on their lap which blocks the vents and causes very bad overheating issues. Most issues can be resolved just by changing the thermal compound and putting it on a desk or on top of a laptop cooling pad.

I had similar issues with an asus gaming laptop when i got it temps would hit 90c on the cpu when gaming and after i changed the thermal compound and put it on a cooling pad the cpu wouldnt go above 79c when gaming and the gpu wouldnt go above 74c.
For anyone still looking, the actual laptop is a quanta nl5e. I received mine yday and played VR "the lab" for a few hours. Cpu temps hit 95° and gpu 85°.

I'll probably get a cooling pad and swap out the thermal compound at some point but those temps are still within "safe" operating temps.

Any questions give me a shout

Would you mind throwing up a link to a timespy run? Just to give an idea of "out of the box" dx12 performance. The link as it gives other info like clockspeeds/etc - can be seen if it's likely throttling or not/etc. Feel free to sit it on a desk so it's a "without vents blocked" run.

My missus needs a laptop upgrade imo (960M is chugging a bit) so a 2070 even with a couple of niggles that can be worked around would be quite a jump.

I'll try to get one up I the next day or two mate. Would be good to see myself tbh.
I'd like a gaming laptop that didn't look like a gaming laptop.

Awesome, ty In work so I can't cross reference but I'll give it a good looking over vs other systems in the morning

Up against my silly OP desktop:

3dmark.com/com…851

so... 2/3 of a... pretty much "no upgrades left" (but needing tuning ) custom water cooled desktop in an £1100/1200 laptop.... that's not bad at all! No humblebrag or anything else. That's genuinely a VERY good showing for a laptop. Still not home, I'll check some of my older 1080ti stuff as this should get fairly close. I see one appearing on my doorstep in about 3 weeks as things sit atm
