Mmm, sub £500 is my bite point. This vs Acer Ryzen 5 or ASUS FX505DY.

Decision would be easier if it wasn't green!

This laptop's i5 beats the Ryzen 5 and the 1050 beats the RX 560 found in most sub-500 laptops. I also prefer the design because it looks like a normal laptop, not a spaceship This is sub-500 if you wanna wait for the quidco cashback, but you can get a version with downgraded RAM and a 1TB hdd with an 8th Gen i5 at Box for £499.97 box.co.uk/HP-…tml
I’m eyeing this one for my son ...
Still holding off. Some good deals on Amazon Warehouse (20pc off) but will wait until Friday.
This is a GREAT offer @op, good find!
I’ve used one of these before and the hardware is alright but the build quality is not great so don’t consider it if you’re moving it around a lot. The chassis is all plastic and prone to stress cracks at key points (near hinges).

The 512GB SSD is good for the price but you might run up against the limits of the VRAM if you’re not careful, maybe it’ll be fine with the standard 1050 as it’s a low-mid range gaming card. The 3GB card has a strange configuration that may be slower than the 2GB under certain circumstances too.

This ‘buying a gaming laptop’ lark is an absolute minefield.
Trying to pick one up for my son for Christmas but every time you think you see a good deal, folks have different opinions around spec, build quality, ‘something much better for £50 more, etc..
Whats with the bezels on this one. Looks like watching through a box into another dimension
I'm using a desktop still running Windows 7 64bit on 2014 Intel i5-4460 - Clock base speed: 3.2GHz~3.4GHz max
Kingston 8GB GDDR3 | 512GB HDD-only

Software I use almost daily are Photoshop CS5,
Bitwig Studio 3, Cakewalk BandLab
PyChard IDE for Python programming
Blender for 3D Modelling & Unity game engine.

Still able to handle editing 4K images/ multi layered music channels at optimal level.

What difference would an Intel® Core™ i5-9300H Processor
- Quad-core
- 2.4 GHz / 4.1 GHz
- 8 MB cache
8 GB DDR4 (2666 MHz)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050- 3 GB GDDR5
& 512 GB SSD
... it's mind-boggling.

Base Clock speed at 2.2GHz above with atleast 4 cores & multiple threads is perfect enough to run Photoshops, DAWs, etc at optimal level - working one CPU-intensive project at a time.

anyways, brbjustimagingowning an Intel Xeon 18-core, 256GB RAM, 24GB NVIDEA TITAN RTX, mmmm.... 12K projects, baby

Your desktop is probably fine and maybe faster (no thermal constraints) unless you want the space back.

Buy it, but if he’s going to carry it around to friend’s houses a lot, it may not last long or hold up well. There’s always compromises in this price range.
So I want a new laptop this is the sort of spec I wanted i5 8 or 9th gen, 8gb ram, 1tb hard drive, (perhaps secondary SSD if fits into budget = £700max) and say GTX 1050 graphics card.

My question is I dont really know Rzyen/AMD. Would similar memory but with AMD Ryzen 5 3550H Processor, AMD Radeon RX 560X 4 GB be better? Also GTX 1050 seems to have different GB versions? Is the 1050 ti that much better? Sorry for all the questions! To be honest am not really a mega gamer unless you count civilization, XCOM or football manager. Just want something that improves on my current Geoforce GT 710M. Thanks

This website is great and answers your VS question. gpu.userbenchmark.com/Com…650

It is helpful if you have some kind of existing hardware so you can VS. Like my 770, I compare everything to that, and want a minimum of 100% (double) performance.

For me (laptop or desktop aside), a 2GB graphics card is unacceptable and belongs in 2009 irrespective of what it's compute power is.

Finally, I want what you want friend, but 200 pound less for more.
