This is.... about the best deal out there currently on spec for price.

You get:

Skylake i7-6700HQ processor
8GB ram (single stick DDR3L, buy another for £25 and this is 16GB)
1TB hybrid hard drive (while not an SSD this... does ok at faster boot/use. Spare slot for a M.2 sata ssd - see one of my other deals for a cheapish SSD to go in it)
960M 4GB graphics card (this imo is about the lowest "decent" gaming graphics card on a laptop.)
1900x1080 IPS panel (there's 2 panels go in this, even the "bad" one is decent, most are now sporting the better panel).
Backlit keyboard, 3 USB3.

I bought one of the these last time the deal came around for them. It's been excellent so far and personally I can highly recommend. £700 for the spec is amazing, considering the heat laptops get on here for £500 with an i5 and no/weak graphics this one really is a steal at the price. Cooling is also much improved over previous generations of inspiron.

It's a single screw to remove all the bottom plate for improvements (like the extra memory stick or M.2 SSD) as needed/wanted.

Full spec:
Processor: Intel Core i7-6700HQ Quad Core (2.6GHz, 6MB Cache, Intel Turbo Boost Up To 3.5GHz)
Screen 15.6" (1920x1080 Full HD Resolution)
Operating System Microsoft Windows 10 Home 64-bit
RAM 8GB (DDR3)
Hard Drive 8GB SSD + 1000GB (Hybrid)
Optical Drive Not Included (Designed To Be Thin & Light) - External Optical Drive Available Seperately for £29.99
Graphics Dedicated (NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960M with 4GB GDDR5 Dedicated Memory)
Wireless LAN Wireless (802.11ac Wireless)
Network Card 10/100/1000 Gigabit Fast Ethernet
Integrated Webcam Integrated HD Webcam with Microphone

Bought this a couple of months ago, chunkier than some laptops but a lot more durable than the thin Lenovos we have already. The only problem we have is the display switches off if pushed fully back, suspect cable is either damaged or partially dislodged.

Did you use the guarantee to sort it?
I purchased it around the same time from dell- no problems, but I'm not a heavy user.
There was a good thread on here, I believe for the same machine!
Yup, previous thread Here
Heat - I'm potentially looking for a gaming laptop but unless something mind boggling cheap comes along will probably wait for Polaris / Nvidia's next gen mobile solutions to hit.
Just wish the i5 versions were sold in the UK. Would probably bring the price down a bit.
I've seen the i5 version appear on ebay but it was only a... £30 saving, something like that. It all helps (If you want bang for buck for gaming) but for £30 I'd probably still have talked myself into the i7
My friends get its i5 edition today. only 500 pounds.

That sort of difference I'd have gone for Find out the deal and post it, that'll do very well on here.

He is in China
Is this good enough for CS:GO?

I've no idea if this is any good for it.

If you have friends in China, you can ask them to bring one for u

You can use it to play GTA V at very high graphic option
looks to be a lot of fan hardware inside - underneath the keyboard !

IPS display so not the best for pro gaming (this wouldn't be used in top end tournaments) but for casual play the GPU is perfectly capable of good framerates at decent settings.

tl;dr yes.

Thanks
any good laptops on amazon uk?
Just bought one. Thanks OP! I had some hassle with the credit card payments, tried two and both declined but later realised I needed to confirm the fraud check text message and retry 5 mins later.

Perfect. CS is a very easy game to run so this will have no issues
Can op add GTX on the title. Makes a huge difference

excellent!! cheers!!
This is a fantastic laptop, I picked one up from the Dell Outlet a month or so ago... same price but with 128GB SSD and 16GB of RAM as standard.
Not much of a gamer but it runs Forza 6:Apex Beta very well.

Done


I got the Asus one with similar spec but with 4k screen and a primary ssd drive. Fallout 4 and street fighter v plays amazing on it. I've set the screen res to 1080p as icons look toon small on 4k mode

Designed to be thin and light - 2.6kg?

Otherwise a very nice laptop. If the quality is good, the price is right.
Great price, don't need one though. Heat added
Dell will beat this price (just) if you open a chat session with them before buying it.
Great laptop. Bought one back in Jan... stuck another 8gb memory in and it is a beast for the price. Happily use it for video editing with Lightworks where it blitzes through multiple tracks of video and audio. The battery is also surprisingly good and even when editing I've got over 3 hours heavy use out of it without it being completely flat.

​Yet to get time to sort it, it's annoying as I could probably sort it myself but don't want to invalidate the warranty. Only a problem when pushed open to the max

Yeah I don't understand how these deals get heat when you can buy it from dell like you said for a better price.

​Yeah at that difference so not worth it. Shame really as I imagine the RRP would be about £70 or so less which would be a bit more appealing

​would you have a price or link for the Asus? thanks
Wish you could get these specs and this price but with 11-13" form factor. Still hot, keep my eye on these dells.
Grabbed a perfect refurb on eBay for 600 a month or two ago so keep a look out on there.

Great machine great price. Added an ssd but no ram to mine as 8gb is probably enough.

Colour representation isn't perfect if you get the chappy screen version so artists beware.

Battery is great on surfing etc but not great on games as you would expect.

All in all I really can't fault it.
Argh decisions this or a ps4! Already got an xbox one
Looking for around this spec but ideally DDR4 RAM and a screen that's rated better.

Not bothered if it has a small mechanical HDD either, I'd probably swap it out for a 1TB SSD.

Any suggestions? Also open to waiting for a hardware refresh if the upgrade from current gen stuff would be worth it.

DDR4 doesn't bring... THAT much to the table. You'd honestly be surprised.
This DOES have 2 panels that appear in it too, 1 is a bit poor, the other is quite highly regarded. You could abuse distance selling regs to ensure you have the better panel****

(* maybe )

Totally this. Even this laptop will wipe the floor with the consoles for: graphics, games prices, total cost of ownership and it's a laptop so it's completely portable. The laptop has an awful lot more uses too.

I think the console folks usually come back with "exclusives" - ok, but if you look at some of the excellent stuff that only appears on PC + modding support....

I'll get off my soapbox
I really think people would be better off finding the extra wonga and going for the XPS15. Slimmer, lighter, more premium, whereas this is a heavy and more 'brick like'.
