does anyone know if the hdmi port is V1 or V2?
Cracking deal for an i7 and gtx960m, shame about ddr3 and hybrid drive but still a great deal.

There should be an m.2 slot too.
Good deal, but be aware that the keyboard on these is pretty bouncy and horrid!
I own one and there is a m. 2 slot in this as well as an extra ram slot
Is this better (not factroing the ssd) http://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-GL552VW-15-6-Inch-Notebook-Black/dp/B015OG3T1Q/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1460212867&sr=8-3&keywords=960m

Seems the same spec wise? I need it for Street Fighter V primarily and specs here seem the same. I have the Asus on order.

​That's 100 pounds more remember.

As for this laptop. I have it myself and paid 640 for a refurb from eBay which was immaculate.

There is as stated an extra ram and m. 2 slot which I filled with a recent deal from kikatek with 120gb ssd. The machine flies and I couldn't be happier with it.

You have to watch the screens on these though. Mine is the worse panel and colours are not perfect but still very good.

I can try to field. Other questions if people have them.

True but you are getting 256gb SSD and Usb type C port

How is gaming with this laptop? Fan noise etc.
I have this laptop last time the deal came up, if you contact dell over the phone/online chat they will offer you it for £694.** - personally preferred to get it directly from the retailer. I have add a 256gb m.2 SSD and its a beast. Perfect for my needs which is non demanding gaming - LoL etc. Definitely worth the money, i was searching for a long time for a laptop and don't believe there is anything else around this price point for the spec. As comment above says keyboard is a bit bouncy however personally this gives me no issues at all.
Damn bought my i7 laptop in 2011 for the same price and this cpu is only 20% more powerful, progress has really slowed. However the same cant be said for GPU power, this is at least 200% more powerful.
I have been looking for a gaming laptop that i can also use for netflix etc. What is the display for anyone who has one of these? And is it suitable for gaming (cod, gta etc)? Thanks

i have this, i play gta 5, fallout, nba 2k16, csgo. it has 2 fans as well so it maintains heat pretty well.

There are 2 fans and they can get noisy when it starts to heat up. Saying that even though it gets noisy, the temp isn't as high, its just that there are 2 fans making noise. I use it for gaming and it's pretty good. only peeve is the trackpad but i use my mouse anyway

​Pretty much as listed above me. I do have a cooling pad on it though as I want to preserve it's lifespan.

It also has a sub speaker in the bottom so the music etc can easy negate the fans. I also find ince it settles in a game the fans wind down and settle too.

​I added a 120gb ssd for 30 quid so I guess say double. For double?

On the usb c front that's a nice addition but not a breaker for me. If you have the extra hundred though I'm sure you can snag a 670m gpu or maybe better? I'm not massively clued up atm.
Got one of these. It's an absolute beast for gaming. Running Witcher 3 - 1080p with most settings on high and a few on ultimate. Getting 35-60fps.
The touchpad is a bit sensitive and the plastic fins on the rear are delicate but other than that it's a great laptop.
You MUST fit a SSD in it though. But that goes for all computers.

​Once I've finished my console back log I m going to be getting witcher and stuff.

Probably even going back to diabolo 2 hah
Glad it runs at nice rates.
i have this laptop for a month now it can handle gta max settings 60 fps and league of legends beyond 140 fps on ultra settings however u do need the charger to be plugged in as it boost the perfomance u can also buy an ssd card m.2 for around 50 pounds for 256gb which is amazing with the laptop

Let's see, if the Asus plays SFV well, then I'll refund it and buy this...
any one has any idea when Dell would release the next generation of this laptop? it has been close to an year since they released this laptop as I remember.
Hi folks, I'm just looking for some advice. I need a new laptop and would like to do a bit of gaming (even though I really don't have the time!). I like the look of AntiChamber, Cities Skylines and a few other indies on Steam. Would this laptop be overkill in the graphics dept? Also, can anyone recommend a good refurbished seller as I'm trying to be a little bit ethical plus save a bit of cash. Thanks in advance.

This is simply inaccurate I have a i7 with a GTX980m and on max settings I get around 35fps in GTA V, with the 960m it is unplayable at max settings (10-15fps). Check it out on notebookcheck.
I have this machine and it cannot run GTAV at Max settings 60fps not even close. It does a good job and is a great machine well recommended from me but it's a 960m so expect a few settings to be turned down on the newer games and minimal AA....

Great machine and not much to beat it for the price...
have u got the link for this?
I've read a couple of comments about csgo.. What FPS/Setttings are you using with this laptop?

I bet it generates a lot less heat and the battery lasts correspondingly longer though.
It's not bad for the price but the graphics card is over a year old and will struggle to play new release games in the near future I reckon...still hot though

this dell by the looks of it is pretty decent tho. someone here wanted advice on buying a laptop. this one would be mid range.. go for alienware if you want a gaming laptop

Thanks for the insight on hp computers.

Could I trouble you to share your thoughts on the recent price fluctuations in the rice market?
Nice to see my Dell 7559 still in market. Excellent Laptop for playing games like GTA 5 , League of Legends, CS GO, Battlefield , Witcher 3 , Need for speed Latest are personally tested and played in very decent FPS rate which is playable without hassle so don't need to worry about that. Build is pretty aggressive but it is made of light material and 1080 standard screen is OK (DOES THE JOB). HEATING is not an issue have 2 fans at the bottom with 3 vents on top and side. Noise is not an issue as if you are playing a heavy game on laptop the fan should roar so expect that from a LAPTOP. ONE SCREW access to hard drive, ram , battery and wlan card.(comes with an extra M2 drive slot). Personal experience a very good laptop in this price range WORTH BUYING!!
P.S Customer service is ok and responsive to your issues although they are based in PhillipiInes
Can anybody tell me how this will handle games like planet coaster, cities skyline etc. Also how well does this cope running emulators like pcsx2 which rely on a good cpu?

It's a bit more expensive than what I paid and currently not the top rated cooler anymore. At the time it was top rated and cheaper so may better alternatives.
I'm right in saying this doesn't have a Thunderbolt 3 port and there are fans/vents on the underside? Could live without TB3 but the fans on the bottom kill it - I loath having to muck about with a cooling pad with my older Dell Inspiron.

Looking for something that can handle high end music software as well as a bit of gaming. For the former, it really needs to be portably in the sense that I can put it down anywhere and still get the best out of it.
I have this laptop, its very nice but the built in graphics (not the 960m) keeps giving errors and stops responding. Excellent laptop for the price i think i just need to put some time into fixing the graphics drivers

I added 8GB as the laptop comes with a single 8GB chip and i added a Samsung 850 EVO SSD(M2 2280 - width 22mm length 80mm)

Can anybody help me to identify what screen my laptop has, its 1080p version but i understand the laptop can come with different panels?

​Someone helped me try and sort it in n ask thread. But I noticed when the colours of Facebook and this app did not match my phone. They just felt washed out. If there lose I'd say you have the better panel.
