Looks like a good all round spec for the money. 1050 is stronger than a 960m, and this comes with 8gb ram, quad core and 256gb SSD.
1080P screen too.

Great all round spec without spending tons and will still play pretty much anything at moderate settings and resolution.

The next model up is £300 more but has i7 instead of i5, 16B RAM instead of 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD and 1TB HDD instead of 256GB SSD and the all important 1050Ti instead of 1050.

Is it worth the extra?

​Is next model up also a 1080p screen?

I purchased this directly from Dell the other year for my son. Never had any problems with any Steam games etc he's purchased. Great for college too.

Both are 1080p screens, only downside being I understand it's not a great screen, not great viewing angles. At £700, I think that's tolerable. Once you hit £1000, to my mind you want something a bit better...and also a 1060 in that budget would be better me thinks.

The HP Omen John Lewis deal was going for a hundred quid less. That had 2GB 1050 graphics and only a HDD. This has 4gb and 246 SSD. I think this is a good price. Both this and the HP had comments relating to the screen.

BTW the HP deal went over 1500 degrees... you do the math. :-)

I heard a while back that they saw the error in their ways and were supposed to be putting better IPS screens in these. Not sure what happened and if these would have them but I guess it's not much hassle to return it if not satisfied.

Not sure what people are downvoting for tbh? Not sure you will get much more laptop for the money. As said, 8gb team, quad core, dedicated graphics that are usable, usable size of SSD...

Great price. People's only complaint about this laptop is it's screen.Bare in mind this has the same graphics card as the recent HP Omen deal except this has 4GB instead of 2GB plus it has an SSD already installed.

Aye. Buying a 256gb SSD would cost most of that £100 these days...

was tempted but saw videos of the screen in action - rest of the specs are great for the price tho

Avoid this laptop! Even though the components are good for the price, the screen is just terrible!

Awesome price for this spec. Has the wavesmaxx audio and dual cooling fans too as far as I'm aware. You can't find specs like this anywhere for this price. I've seen the i7 version in the flesh, it looks badass and personally didn't notice anything about the screen

I'm returning my dell 7567 (i7 version with 16gb ram and 1050ti) which I bought one week ago. It had a lot of stutters and even when I called dell's technicians the only solution they could offer was "we can send you a new unit, but we can not assure that it won't have the stutters problem". With games runs perfect, but normal windows use it has a lot of stutters. It's even worse when you connect a second screen to the hdmi port.
These problems probably will be sorted in the future with new drivers, but I've read other people having these problems at least for 5 months and they haven't released a solution.

I got the hp omen at the end, which have lower capabilities but for me (casual player) it's more than enough.
Cheers.

Using the 7567 I7 with the 1050ti.
Windows no issues at all, fine little machine but the screen on these if not IPS is poor, I mainly (honestly) use it for work and it is fine for that.

This is a cracking deal for the spec - almost bought it last night but decided the chunk of cash on my credit card wouldn't be the best decision a day before we fly on holiday.

Just to clarify on the screen, it's recommended that people go for IPS panels as reviews have stated the viewing isn't great from angles etc. as people have mentioned above. But for the price, it's a superb deal. You generally won't find any other spec close to this for the price.

256GB SSD are not that expensive anymore. Especially if it's a cheap brand. If it was an EVO 850 that would be different, but i'm fairly sure it won't be.

I wouldn't go for this laptop if you will use it mainly for gaming. The 1050 (even the Ti) is a mid-range GPU and I would say that even low-range in terms of gaming. The 980 one which is higher range but one earlier generation gives much better benchmarks on games than this one. I would only tag a laptop as a "gaming laptop" with a "XX65" GPU onwards (i.e. 965, 970, 1070 etc...)

For this price difficult to find a better screen with similar specs. So HOT for the price.

From memory Dell often use solid branded drives, even if not ones that are available for consumers to use.
The point I was making is the extra gddr5 and a 256gb branded SSD would easily be in that price vicinity

Nice deal, shame about the awful screen and Dell's misleading IPS reference

Wow! I'm glad that you didn't have stutters with your Dell. But I've seen many people on internet , specially dell forums having stutters with the i7 version, maybe the i5 version does not have those problems.

I'm comparatively strapped for cash but needing a lappy to capture from consoles and video editing- got this on 'awaiting dispatch' but having second thoughts.
I need something below £1000 but trying to get the rights specs at cost is insane. I7 hyperthreading vs dedicated gpu vs DDR5 etc etc- I just don't know anymore...
I've been trying to figure this stuff out for months...

Just... Will it be alright for a while? Anyone?

Was eyeing up that Omen from John Lewis, otherwise. Too many conflicting reviews trying to build a custom.
