I woder how noisy a laptop like this would be - fans blowing constantly?
£999 direct from Dell (using SAVE100 code) - The extra £35 for a second year warranty from JL is probably worth it however

very if my alienware is anything to go by
No idea why this is being downvoted, the laptop reviewed well with LTT, and price wise its alright especially with JL extended warranty. Just trying to convince the wife to let me get it...

Been looking for something similar and was tempted with the Lenovo Y700 also from JL.
Reviews conflict as to which is better but the Dell is now £100 cheaper than the Y700 and my old laptop is about to drop off the perch so I've taken the plunge.
Heat added - Thank you
This is a cracking deal of you want the UHD screen.

I just bought the HP Omen 206na for £900 with 1080p screen and it's great for someone who wants something a bit cheaper.

This is a good price for new. I got the same model but refurbed from the Dell Outlet. Pretty happy with it so far. Heat!

It may have a 4k display but with that graphics card you won't be playing anything at 4k , it's just a complete waste of money really for something that's marketed as a "gaming laptop"

​It's more than capable of gaming in 1080p and the 4k display is great for general media consumption at the around the same price point as equivalent gaming laptops without the UHD screen.
I never understand why they have high spec screens put don't put in a at least a blu-ray drive - not just dell but most models just have a standard DVD drive - any reason ?
Cost and design. There is not much demand for disc drives since most media is downloaded or streamed these days.

No - the Full HD model is currently £1099 - £100 with the SAVE100 code.
The Ultra HD 4K model is £1299 - £100 with the same code.
This is much cheaper and comes with the 2 year warranty.

This should be hot. It's a decent full HD screen, not the

Your Alienware probably has a higher spec graphics card. The GTX 1050 TI shouldn't require as much cooling so should be quieter.

Bluray drives add quite a bit of cost in a very competitive market. Windoze doesn't come with software to play blurays, so you would have to add that to the cost as well. Then it starts to look quite expensive. Also a lot of the target audience doesn't bother with DVDs or Blurays these days - they just download and/or stream content.
I think this is a good deal TBH. I have just posted this one:
hotukdeals.com/dea…100
and I think they are comparable, this one has a better SSD and better screen, and is £135 dearer
I got this from Dell for roughly the same price, and I sent it back, at 4k even web pages were a struggle for this.
I like this laptop very much. However (for me) its let down in a couple of areas. Which are: no 1080p IPS option, and no thunderbolt port...

However these 2 missing features seem included by the Lenovo Yoga 720! It just doesnt seem to be available in the UK yet. Sorry thats not meant to be an advertisement or anything. Its just like we were discussing here about the 4k panel being a bit of a sticking point for some of us.

That's insane. If you are having problems with displaying web pages on a quad core i7 with 16GB RAM, PCIe SSD and GTX 1050ti graphics, either your ISP streaming isn't up to it, or you've managed to get your laptop slowed down with malware or bloatware.

The new Lenovo does look very interesting, but unfortunately, as you say, it's not available over here yet, and we don't know what the price will be.

The lack of thunderbolt is a disappointment, but not a deal killer for me. Sure, it's an improvement on USB 3.0, but apart from a backup disk and the occasional USB memory stick I'm not really looking to add any external devices. I suspect that's true for quite a lot of people.

Actually I'm not worried about gaming - I just need a decent photo and video editing machine and a 4K screen should help.
Just be aware, if the hinges break they aren't covered by warranty, screws come loose. you'll have difficulty getting Dell to do anything. If you have any other issue Dell can pass off as "You must have dropped it" you're not covered. Suggest you look up Dell reviews on the net, until they sort their customer service I would rather buy from Dell Boy.
Unless you're on first name terms with Michael Dell then avoid, it took a tweet to him before Dell UK took my laptop to fix. Hinge screw was missing inside, they accused me of dropping the laptop and initially wanted £220 to repair, also stating my warranty was expired as they had shipped it to an online retailer 3 months before I bought it.
Now sorted but it took a week of abuse from Indian call centre staff first.

No and no. It was just bad. I only had it for a couple of hours and sent it back. 4k video played ok, games were ok, but anything else had a odd judder to it. so back it went.
Is this a good buy? I can get 12% off this price being a worker at JL.
Looking for a gaming laptop this month.

If you can get this with your discount bringing it down to £900ish, it's a good buy. The 1050Ti is a pretty reasonable GPU and will play all modern games at 1080P with decent frame rates, and with all the other components, it's a good all-round laptop. I'm tempted but just spent the same again on Dell outlet for an aurora R5 desktop which I'm loving thus far.
Thanks dude but OOS now. Shame.

keep an eye on dell outlet. got my alienware for £1250, 1070gfx 6700hq 120hz screen. great machine.
Bit too much for me. The HP OMEN 15 1050ti at £900 looks best buy but heard mixed reviews on HP quality. The more im waiting the more i wanna grab a Alienware though.
