Quite a good deal in my opinion. Very impressive battery life for a gaming laptop too (7-8 hours), drawbacks would be that it's from the Nvidia 900 series rather than the 1000 series which would mean though its performance is comparable to the 1060 it would produce more heat and be less optimised. It looks to be a bit heavier than other 15.6" models at 3.5kg rather than 2.5.

But for those on a budget this really does it if you don't mind this dated model. You won't find many like this for under 1000.

980M 8GB can easily beat 1060 and although it's slightly less powerful than 1070, it's still very powerful card...

The battery is a massive plus, the standard for gaming laptops round that range is 3-4 hours, with some exceptions like the Acer VX5 (VX 15) which is 5-6, at 7-8 this is amazing.

Wouldn't the 1060 mobile model be a more just comparison?

That's desktop. The 1060 (mobile) is the one you want. They're fairly close on there. The 1060m slightly edging it.

My mistake, updated the link. The mobile model still out performs on all but lighting.
This is a great find. A very viable alternative to a 10 Series gpu

It's actually very near, so if you find a much better deal for it it's very much worth it.

I wasn't saying it's a bad deal. I think it's a great laptop for the price. I was just saying it doesn't easily beat the 1060

Not much between this and a 1060, but you won't get a new 1060 laptop for close to this price.

Personally, I'm going to wait until I can get a 1060 laptop for about a grand. Fingers crossed for some amazing black Friday deals
Only came here for the pretentious nobbery and was not disappointed

How so?.
Good price.
Too powerful for my needs but a good price.
980 destroys a 1060, don’t worry about that.
Really good price
So desperately want these gaming laptops but i have no frigging idea why..........................................................................................................................................................................................

you can already. theres a really good msi one on scan for 999, also a asus for 999 but the msi is much better

A 980M though notice the M for mobile, means that the 1060 is the faster part, so if a laptop with a 1060 comes up for similar price then that will have the faster GPU. This laptop uses a 980M.
Ah, I see
I know nothing about gaming laptops... but if I had a budget of £899 would this be THE laptop to get?
I have the predator 17. The battery is not readily removable on this, you also need to open her up to clean out the duel fans and I had to replace the thermal compound in less than a year as it is a known problem on these that the stuff it comes with seeps away leaving the processor and graphics card open to heat build up and damage. The graphics card is also built in so can't be upgraded.
Boo!

I'm holding out for the 6gb version. I should have mentioned that
I doubt there is much better for this price.

Serious question - in what way?

I'm looking for a gaming laptop at the moment and the moment all benchmarks shows 980 being slower than 1060

Every benchmark that I've looked at contradicts that. You must be looking elsewhere.

Yes. I have a laptop with a 960M which is quite a bit worse than 980M and it runs just about everything rather well with some setting tweaking. With a 980M you could probably run everything on higher settings.

I had a laptop with 965 which is a little bit better than 960 and now i have MSI Ghost with 970 and it's much faster than my old 965...

Are you sure you're looking at the 980M, it's 51st on your list? Which is worse than the 1060 Mobile.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 (Laptop) is 22nd... the 980M is 51st.
This laptop has got 980m, but there are many with 980...

This GTX 980m model or the latest offer on Saveonlaptops ?
Is it worth paying for the 3 year extended warranty?

Is it worth paying for the 3 year extended warranty?


If you decide to go for it .buy direct from Acer, 3 years extended £69, 4 years £99.
