Looks good, spec wise too, just wish they'd start putting 1050/1060m's in laptops already.

I'd recommend you to extend any warranty!

good spec and voted hot but I'd really like a touchscreen now. Keeping a close eye on the new stuff coming out as it'll mean the 6th gen stuff should be discounted.

Maybe the 1050 but that is barely out, these machines are all about svelte design and battery life, both of which 1050/1060 will kill and 940MX is created for. Also haven't you noticed what price tag the 1060 laptops carry? I would also say they are simply not going to sell such laptops cheap until they get rid of all the 9xx generation laptops and by the time that happens you are going to pay the brexit price which will raise the prices anyway...

I think this is a good deal. There are a lot of folks out there that obviously would love a laptop with a super fast graphics card but will baulk at the prices you have to pay. Even a last generation 960m laptop (a fairly modest card) with a 1080p screen will set you back at least £800! Some of the new Nvidia 1080 laptops cost around £2400 and I can think of lots of things I'd prefer spending that amount of money on.

The MSI that was £549 in the other thread is the better deal. £100 less than this as well.

First off, the MSI in now £599 so this is now only £50 more expensive. For that £50 you get a fast SSD, not an HDD, you get the latest Kaby Lake CPU, not a Skylake one and a DDR5 GPU, not a DDR3 one.
Also you absolutely RUBBISHED that MSI when it was £549! I'm never met someone who is so consistently inconsistent with their buying advice.

Will this be able to play games?

Will this be able to play games?



I've played enjoyable games on far worse computers than this one. You won't be able to play several of the most modern games at 1080p with every setting cranked up to max but some of these resource hungry games (eg Thief, No Man's Sky) aren't that great and IMO aren't worth bothering with. This laptop should handle many of the Assassin's Creed games, Alan Wake, all the Half-Life series, Wolfenstein: The New Order, the early Far Cry games, Crysis I & II, Mafia II, Metro:Redux, Portal I & II with ease in 1080p.

Oh, and don't forget Cryostasis, a personal favourite.

Your intelligence gets lower and lower with each thread....either that or you're on "spectrum".

I said that you couldn't call the MSI a "gaming laptop" because it can't play all the games at native resolution. It's like you trying calling your Kia Picanto 1.0L a "rally car" because you can drive it down a mud track at 20mph.

Kaby Lake. ROTFL. Over a 950m? Don't be daft. This is just Dell trying to maximise their profits.

And yes, the MSI at £549 is a better deal than this. And you can get a 250gb SSD for £60-£70.

Your knowledge of computer technology is just non-existent. You were one of those people who use to judged cameras based on mega pixels weren't you? X)

Those games are ancient. Half-Life is almost 20 years old for chisakes. What are you going to come up with next? Windows Minesweeper? Do you really think that he was asking about whether it can play games from 10+ years ago? X)

Apparently there is a Inspiron 14 7000 series and it is only in India, not sure will it be here but I'm not a gamer so 14" with this spec will be perfect for me, voted hot!

He didn't specify what games and Joe90_guy simply made some suggestions on games that would run well.

You think a game being old makes it not worth playing?

Or you just picking fights on the internet because you have nothing better to do?

You don't ask if a 2016 laptop can "play games" if you're talking about games from 10-20 years ago. Any £749 2016 can do that.

Arguing with you is like arguing with a teenager. There can only be one 'right' answer (yours of course!), you always cite the most extreme example to make your point and you point blank refuse to see any merit whatsoever in anything anyone else says.

First off, it doesn't matter that the Half-life games are old; they are still brilliant games. I played the updated Black Mesa version recently and was reminded just how good these games were. Second, Wolfenstein: TNO & Metro Redux are two years old, not twenty. Third, 'Cyrostasis' might be a seven year old game now but when it first came out, it was so far ahead of things in terms of its implementation of PhysX, that it was virtually unplayable at max settings on all but the most expensive desktop GPUs. It's taken a few years for laptop GPUs to catch up but it's truly beautiful now you can play it as the designers originally intended.

Finally, if you're going to quote me back to myself, do be a good fellow and try and get the words right. People on not 'on spectrum', they are 'on THE spectrum', meaning they display behaviour indicative of autism or Asperger's syndrome. A bit like yourself really...

Get your facts right. Maybe one game he mentioned is more than 10 years old. And all are classics. Many people are looking for a laptop that is good enough to play Minecraft and indie titles. Which this Dell will with ease despite not being a gaming laptop. There's still market for laptops like this.
The MSI in the other deal was marketed as a gaming laptop. Whether or not it meets your definition of a gaming laptop or not.
What is a better deal is subjective. And there's no need to get hostile if you don't agree with somebody else's opinion.

I really like the design of this latest iteration of 7000 series. Wish my workplace started issuing these.

I do have my facts right and this isn't being hostile - you seem you be overly sensitive or you just like spamming threads. As I've already said, when someone asks whether a 2016 laptop "can play games", they're not usually asking whether it can play ancient games that had recommended hardware specs from aeons ago. So that the fact that that guy talks about it being able to play Half Life, Wolfenstein, early Far Cry, Portal etc is pretty ridiculous. It can play Chuckie Egg and Pac-Man too. Does that help?

You'd weep into your cornflakes if your brand new £749 Dell couldn't play the type of old games that that old guy mentioned.

Okay. Let's turn this around. You, with your superior knowledge, tell us mere mortals what laptop we should all buy. Tell us where we should buy it and how much we should pay for it. The only proviso that it has to be a current deal for a UK sourced, new laptop. This I have to see!

popcorn time

*gets comfy....

Ooh I thought I saw some tumbleweed... zzzzz

Waiting...tapping fingers...

Oh, can we add that the deal has to be hot; like with serious money off, etc? After all, this site is called HOT UK Deals?

I think picard has gone to ask for help in pc world

Picard will be back here as soon as he's finished his paper round...

I really fancy this...but I do think it might drop further in price

Any reviews for this? Aiui the last gen had poor battery life.

http://m.dell.com/mt/www.dell.com/uk/p/inspiron-15-7566-laptop/pd?oc=cn56601&model_id=inspiron-15-7566-laptopIs this one better for £699?



If money is no object and your primary use for the laptop is gaming with the thing plugged into a wall socket, then IMO the 960m variant is worth the extra £50. There is no doubt that the 960m is technically faster than the 940mx (although it will probably be more power hungry too). However you need to understand something about 'faster' that isn't always obvious.

Here's a comparison of the previous generation 860m and 850m from Gaminglaptopjunky...

gaminglaptopsjunky.com/gtx…0m/

The cards are basically the same except that one uses fast DDR5 memory while the 850m (the one in my laptop) uses cheaper, slower DDR3 memory. The 860m is on average 30% faster. However what the graphs show is that in ABSOLUTE terms, the biggest improvements in fps are in the easiest games like DOTA2 (which the slower 850m has no problem with). The improvement in fps in resource hungry games like Thief are small and a game that might be unplayable with the 850m is very likely to be unplayable with the 860m! It's this that made me opt for the 850m which at the time was about £150 cheaper. But everyone's different so you might come to a different conclusion.

Wow! £629 is a brilliant price! My lad's a doctor so presumably he could get NHS discount too. I don't need a new laptop but I might be tempted by this offer.

The thing people really need to focus on right now is that as a consequence of Brexit, inflation is coming down the pipe at a rapid rate of knots. Don't believe what people tell you when it comes to predicted inflation rates because it's always higher. If they say 3%, then triple it! I survived the '70s so I've been through this nonsense before. Also, be aware you are going to get poorer because inflation always initially outstrips wage growth and savings rates. So if you want this laptop and you have the cash, my advice is get it now because it could easily be 10 to 20% more expensive this time next year.

Joe90_guy

Don't you need the discount code PREMIUMUK to get £100 knocked off?

Ah didn't notice that, thanks - still not sure it's a great deal though. Would prefer a 950m card for less.

...hold am getting confused - £699 for a 960m is good and likely well worth the extra. For less than the original post you could get a 950m - the OP falls between both and is worse value than either in my opinion.

You might get lucky if EBuyer bring back the MSI GL62 (950m) deal at £549.99 again but I suspect this will be as low as they go. I paid £562 for mine back in February 2015 and in that time, they've dropped that much at all.
