This is an open box / slightly used model - Grade A - although for the cash the specs are really quite something. Has an 8th Gen Hexacore i7, 16GB RAM, plenty of storage, a 6GB GTX 1060, a large FHD screen at 17.3", as well as being 144Hz.

The next best I can see is Laptop Outlet on Amazon at around £90 more (Also Graded)

It doesn’t have thunderbolt. It would allow you to hook up an external gpu but from what I’ve seen the enclosures are expensive and, with a 6gb 1060, this is pretty well balanced with the 8750 cpu anyway.

Pretty good, works out roughly the same it would have been on their ebay page if the 10% still worked

Can always send it back if not happy. Don't know if you'll have to pay postage though. Check carefully for dead pixels although I doubt they'll class as faulty unless there's several together
You do have to wonder why this has been returned after being used.....maybe it ain’t all that!

If there's issues then Paying via Paypal and using their Free returns scheme may be the way to go, to avoid the costs

thanks for the info
Got the same model from this place at the start of the year, also 'Grade A'. Both the laptop and the packaging were as good as new and has worked perfectly. Very good at this price.
Thanks OP
A few months ago I would have gone all in on a laptop of this specification for this price easily, but doing some research and the news releasing with the impending Navi and the specs of the PS5 and Xbox Scarlett potentially providing 4k 60fps standard, now it's like a big gamble whether to spend now or to hold off for next year, the main issue being if new games next year could likely be more optimised for newer PC specifications and not to the current (and what would be much cheaper by then) specifications. A safer bet would be going for a GTX1660Ti or a GTX1070 GPU laptop but there is a ton of uncertainty around regarding how powerful Navi is and if Nvidia would be able to match the power/price ratio that AMD are likely going to have.
voted hot for the price but do your research into this as from what I have seen on paper the specs look good but in performance not so much!

144hz IPS not good enough? This is pretty sweet for a laptop screen
nice! finally a half decent gaming laptop that doesn't cost £1,000
lack of thunderbolt might put some off
Goddamit decided I was going to go for it, refreshed page and OOS...

no not just Ebay purchases,I sent some running pants off and claimed this week from a sports company,take a photo of the returns label on parcel if you send back showing the returns address,that helps meet the criteria of proof,You don't have to do that but it makes it easier/quicker to get the refund

Pretty good deal - I paid £1100 for this last year
What kind of frame rate do you get on most games with this? Is it straight 1080p/60 FPS
Currently showing as out of stock.

A 1060 will play any game at 60fps in 1080, youll just have to turn settings down in some more recent games. If you want 60fps in all games at 1080 no matter what the settings, you'll need a 1070 or 2060 chip

It is not the 144Hz IPS screen, They have used the wrong photo. If you look at the item code it is not the model with that screen,

This is the same cooling design as the FX504 that can't even keep an 8300H and 1050 cool? No wonder they have so many customer returned laptops

So like I said not available to anyone or can someone post an original invoice bought with this deal ... Like most of the over £500 silly deals on here totally fabricated deal that probably never existed to begin with and why are your replying yes it was but it was out of stock isn't that my point ?
Edited by: "BonzoDogDooDaa" 29th Jun
Lol. In stock for hours, but by the time I decided to go for it was OOS. Had page on screen the entire time - I just dithered...

Well that's my point just because it says in stock and you didn't add it to your basket you have no way of knowing whether the deal was actually valid like I said show me a receipt from someone that actually bought one
