Dell Inspiron Gaming Laptop 4K Screen £300 off, also reductions on 1080p models.

This is for the 4K screen version which gets great reviews.
Dell have released a new version with a GTX1060 graphics card which is £1600, if you want a top of the line gaming laptop with a 4K screen then this is an absolute steal.

Is there definitely room in this one to add a second 2.5" drive?
Now if it was a 4k laptop with a gtx 1060 I would be all over it still a good deal though

Cheaper at …Cheaper at amazon?https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-Inspiron-Gaming-i7-7700HQ-Graphics/dp/B01NAW8DX0


That link takes you to the 1080P version, which has a 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD instead of a 512GB SSD. I don't think that's worth it for only 20 quid less.

yea shame 1050ti only
Is there a 1080 version of this?
Woo, I caved in and bought it! It was about £200 more than the last i7+1050 deal I posted but missed out on (and was hoping would return), but I'd rather have a single 500 GB SSD than a 128 GB SSD + 1 TB disk, and the 4K IPS screen, slightly faster 1050Ti graphics and twice as much RAM sealed the deal.
This is hot
Part of me wants to buy either this or the lesser ones at £799.95 but the other part of me is a tight ****** who thinks "Yeah but you don't play many PC games, so why bother?"

In reality I want a 14inch with a 960m or 970m or something but they don't exist.

Well yeah, both of those have been replaced. By the 1060 and 1070.
Can be good machines, shame their support can be awful.

128 degrees at the moment, but I expect it to get hotter.

Comprehensive review right here, albeit the model sold here has a better screen.

It's a non issue.
You get a 2 year warranty with JL. Any problems with the machine just take it back to them and let them deal with Dell or replace/refund.
Excellent spec and a great deal imho.

If it had a 1060 I'd be all over it!

Hi Ollie,

Tired to contact you earlier about building a new GTX 1080 PC, doesn't seem to let me PM you for some reason...
Paid £1035 in July from JL - very pleased with it.
This price is even better.

I'll probably be using mine for video editing, photo tweaking and running the occasional virtual machine more than I'll be using it for gaming. The 4K IPS screen, extra RAM and 8-thread CPU will make it great for stuff like that. Worth the extra £200 imho. Of course, being able to play a cheeky game every now and then is a bonus

As for 14" gaming laptops, have you seen this one? pcspecialist.co.uk/not…14/
This or Alienware?

No I hadn't, thanks, might research into things.

This said I popped into my local John Lewis at lunch. They had the the £800 version there but also one that has i7-7700hq and 1050Ti, think only 8gb much larger HD, 1tb plus 128 SSD, I think but it was £850 (saving of £250). It isn't on their website though, which is odd. EDIT: Found the, Dell Inspiron 15G apparently, has 16gb, 1tb+256SSD for £850... wonder why it's not online. Seems like a great deal.

Is there a 1080 version of this?


Yes the red exclusive model, OOS at the moment, tempted to go for it when it comes back into stock as the config suits me better and i like the Ethernet port as i have always found wifi very flaky on dell models.

Not what they asked?, hehehe.

But I see where you was going with it nonetheless ... :-D

There's also a deal on right now for 10% off student prime members, so you could get it for £881.99.

No i would look to put a M.2 SSD in a machine like this

Do you know that for sure, or are you just guessing? It's just that the Amazon page for the same laptop says "A massive service bay door makes it easy to insert upgrades over time", and you can get the same model with a 128 GB SSD and a 1 TB disk, so I'd have thought this one would also have room for a spare 2 TB disk I have lying around?

How will this cope with video editing etc? Was looking at a mac book that's an i7 16gb ram but looking at near 2k for one of those.

I expect it will fly (at least, I hope so, as video editing is one of the main things I'll be using mine for!)

The i7-7700HQ has 4 cores and multithreading, so you can have up to 8 encoder threads purring away.
4K plus 1050ti is like putting a ford fiesta engine in a Ferrari F40. Maybe great for editing some photos, but this baby ain't doing any 4K gaming ladies and gents.
Would love to buy this but I just got an Acer Swift 3. I also quite like my Xbox so will have to pass.

If it was £799 then I'd definitely bite 😊
4K screen is a major negative for this deal. You'll need to use scaling in windows which often doesn't work or makes things blurry and games will run like buts so you'll need to run them at a lower res resulting in it being blurry,

It has one 2.5" bay and 1 M2 SSD / NVME slot, 2 x Ram slots.

This has a 512GB NVME drive, leaving the 2.5" free for you to add your HDD.

Surely it won't look blurry at 1080P? Each game pixel would map to exactly 4 screen pixels.
Dam you hot deals ordered for pick up tomorrow
