First things first. This is listed as 'Coming soon', you can add it to your basket but not sure if you can actually pay for it as I haven't tried. The price looks to be a little low for the spec and the brand - Gigabyte are usually on the high end price wise.

If the price is correct and you can pay for it, this is a great spec for a decent laptop.

You also get a free Gigabyte M8000X Gaming Mouse Worth £49

Going to keep my eye on this and will edit the deal if necessary.

*Edit - 21/11/2017

As of now, it's saying "currently not available"

Going by experience with Save On Laptops, this probably means it's 'end of life' and wont be available at all.

Sorry guys, knew it could go either way when I posted the deal, but thought it worth the risk if it was legit.

Happy hunting!

I think it is worth to wait until BF at Acer, uk-store.acer.com/pre…k-2, same spec would be 30%off on BF, and you can also get 11% cash back through Quidco, the price would be £872.

No. The GPU is soldered to the motherboard, as is the CPU.

Please check their web about BF, it shows 30% off

I may be wrong, but the website suggests 30% (misleadingly) - i.e. not all offers will be 30% off. I am led to believe this - as on the same page as the 30% with the down arrow - it says the "Special Price" will be revealed in 2 days & 1 hours time. If everything was 30% off, then "The special price" would not need revealing at all, as it's already obvious. I have a feeling it's an "up to 30%" sale. Hopefully I'm wrong though.

Maybe it would be up to 30% off, but it is still worth to see what happens on BF. I hope all 30%off, otherwise why they just give a 24hours special offer.

I just bought this 2 weeks ago for 1159 with headphones and mouse in a bundle with 99 cashback from quidco would you think they will put a better deal?

It will be "up to 30% off"

Any electronics retailer, with already competitive prices, would go bankrupt if they did 30% BF discount across the board. I'd love to be proven wrong though

andrewborland18238 m ago

No. The GPU is soldered to the motherboard, as is the CPU.

Unless it uses MXM then you can upgrade, but it will be expensive. Anyways I can't see a point of upgrading, by the time the 1060 is no longer meeting your performance goals, the 1070 or 1080 wouldn't either.
If you buy a laptop with a 1060 in it now, there would be no reason to get anything better until the whole system needed to be replaced and cost wise might be even cheaper after couple of years.

I wish I had the money for this. A bargain at this price though. Hot

We will see what deal on BF, I’m insisting on believing they will all 30%off, as it only has 17 items on the BF list. They have 15%, 10% and 5% off offer now with different products. My understanding is it is pointless to put a BF counting down if they don’t offer 30%off. You may can get price match with Acer, but your deal is different which is a bundle.

I see your point more clearly. Oh well, with luck, maybe

hottest deal around.

I've gone for it, very low price for that spec. It has let me order and pay for it but they only operate 9 til 5-30 so we'll see tomorrow if my order gets cancelled.

Is this worth the extra …Is this worth the extra £300?https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/medion-erazer-x7853-i7-17in-1tb-256gb-ssd-gtx1070-8gb-gaming-laptop-130499-using-code-argos-2829724?page=2#thread-comments

Worth it for the spec, but as Medion don't have serice centres in the UK, if anything goes wrong, it gets shipped to Germany for repair. This can take weeks according to people who's machines have gone wrong.

Two daft-ish questions: if I bought this to replace an aging desktop, could I potentially attach my three current screens via the external VGA, HDMI and Mini Display port, with this graphics card, and would this as high-spec gaming machine also be pretty reasonable for (amateur level) video editing? Thanks in advance.
Edited by: "obwan2014" 21st Nov

DVD writer?! That's a surprising thing to see on the specs list. Unnecessary extra weight and size, especially for a high-performance laptop.

Cracking deal.

I used to video edit on a '386' PC (with limited memory and disk space) years ago and it worked quite happily - ok it was SD and not HD or 4K but there is a myth that you need a super computer to edit video .... you dont. This would absolutely eat the job (as would a lower spec machine). In my humble opinion you only need this sort of spec if you play the latest games at the highest settings.

Any update if this if for real

Not for those people who still burn CD/DVD's for use away from the computer. Everyone has differnet requirements. (An external drive is possible but better with a built in drive if you use it) Depends if you just want a games machine or something more universal.

All five of them, none of whom buy modern gaming laptops. As you say, external drives exist. I don't see enough people wanting this for it to be a good decision. I don't have a disk reader anywhere in my house, haven't for five years.
