Great spec

looks decent, on the market for one early next year - will be looking for something like this

There seems to be no good offers for quad-core i7 processor laptops. For those that are voting this down, would uou please share deals for a non U version i7 processor based laptop?

I'm not into gaming but just want a neat looking (silver) powerful laptop for work and just video editing capabilities, ideally around 15" screen size.

Was looking at this just before I saw here. I am in market for 17inch reliable laptop for work. Spec are impressive but not sure if this is good deal or not.

People just see i7. Like you said the quad core hyperthreading models are leaps and bounds above the dual core and U models. I remember when i7 used to mean something, you knew you were getting something powerfull.
They have just abused the name.

Cant find anything close to cheaper for proper i7, SSD & HDD, 16GB ddr4, decent graphics and decent screen.

there is not mini display port on this. Does anybody know how I can hook external monitor on this?

No not the monitor i have its very old connected to my xps with adaptor to mini display port.
Can I use Hdmi for connecting monitor? i cant on my xps 1702x. May be its different tech now.

sorry i am not upto date with these technology.

The only thng that puts me off ordering this is that it looks to have the same huge bezels around the screen that my years old 17" HP G72 has.

Desperately want to upgrade that thing.

I know I keep saying it, but spending £900 on a laptop with a 960M is complete and utter madness.
1050/1050Ti models are not far off and will offer 2-3x the GPU performance in this price bracket.

No, but I made that abundantly clear in my post. I won't lose any sleep if you want to buy this laptop.

I really like this setup, pretty much what I've been looking for at this price for a while now. I want a big screen and lots of RAM, the DVD is a bonus because presumbly I can swap it out for an HDD caddy.

All the other extras are good as well, bluetooth, usb 3, HDMI etc.

GTX 960M, I think would be good enough for me. I won't be playing games but I do want to do video editing.

The only thing that puts me off is the negative comments, (which you always get), suggesting there will be better.

Can anybody actually say with proof that you will get this same setup with a better graphics and processor for the same money in the next couple of months?

l think this is good setup, so l have bought this using my work perk discount. Didnt want to ponder to long over this, as last time l did, they all sold out.

You could wait for 1050/1050Ti models as suggested but they will sell at a premium for a good while.
Theres not a chance in hell your going to get a laptop with new gen graphics, proper quad core i7, 16GB DDR4, HDD, SSD boot drive and 17" IPS screen for under £900.
Perhaps a dual core i5 or i7.

This is a great power house of a laptop, if you like it I wouldnt be put of by negative comments.

Thank you, I have ordered.

There is a chance with the new models coming out that this type of spec of laptop will drop further over the coming months but that applies to pretty much all technology. As I said before it pretty much ticks all the boxes I want and my current laptop is over five years old oO 1050/1050Ti doesn't really appeal to me as a GTX960 will be slightly quicker than my Intel 965 chipset.

Thanks again for your words of wisdom.

You seem to be looking at 15.6" laptops which could be seen as a totally different category to the 17" posted here. Still think that this deal is hot considering screen size and the other components. As I said when I posted it though, such a big screen isn't for everyone.

Perhaps you're confusing the GTX 960 with the 960M? Despite their name these older cards are a sham and offer significantly less performance than the desktop variants. The newer Pascal GPU series are much closer.

Perhaps, but the articles I found were specifically 960M. There is suggestion that there won't be a M version of the 1050 due to the lower power etc, although I may have misunderstood that as well.

However if you have any articles it would be useful to help decide whether it's worth the wait for me.

There won't be a 1050m, the desktop version is basically it. The 10% you are referring to was a benchmark suggesting it was 10% quicker than a 970m not a 960m. That makes it considerably better than the 960m. They might be a little more expensive but worth waiting to see.
