Found 11th Nov
Was looking for beginners entry gaming laptop for my son for Christmas. Seems a good price in comparison with other retailers. Includes 2 year warranty.
I was going to purchase from Argos until they increased price and after monitoring prices elsewhere found John Lewis have it on offer. I have never seen this laptop at this low price before, so have ordered and shared. Hope this helps someone else looking for similar.

A bit of strange proposition from hp. I bought this model which I think better because it has ssd. However the one that you posted does look more "wow" on the style.

I'd say a 1050 TI is bare minimum even for an entry gaming laptop.

Depends on what games you play.

I have the same spec laptop and it is perfectly fine for FM and Civ, which is what I bought it for.

But wouldn’t get a 1050 for FPS games..

1050 will play Destiny 2, COD WWII, Wolfenstein II etc all at medium at 60fps

The 1050ti is bar far the poorest value for money of all of the 10 series. There isn't a single game that the ti can run that the 1050 cant.

It is more about performance in those games rather than whether it can run them in the first place.

Was going to get this from tesco today for £799 !! Thanks so much for posting this deal

The performance is roughly 10%. In what scenario is that gonna make a noticeable difference? A difference between playable and non playable? If the 1050 is getting 20fps then the ti will get you roughly 22. 30fps will get you roughly 33. 60fps will get you roughly 66. These differences will simply not gonna be noticeable enough to justify the price difference between the 2 cards. If anyone wants better than the 1050 then the 1060 is far better and far better value for money

I strongly disagree that there is roughly a 10% performance difference. In some games, there is only a small difference, but in some games there is a pretty significant difference. Check out some benchmarks and come back. Saying there is virtually no difference is HIGHLY misleading. A GTX 1050 Ti is only £25-30 more than the 1050, whereas the 1060, mind you I'm talking about the 3GB version (even less VRAM than 1050 Ti), is about £80 more than the 1050, which for those on a budget, is a significant amount.

Every 1050 laptop deal it's the same story. 1050 is a capable card that will run anything as long as you have realistic expecations.

People have unrealistic expectations of what is available at this price point and the guy above me seems to think we're talking about desktop variants LOL!

Your son will be chuffed OP!

Was this the same one Damien Thorne had? Heat from me if it was.

Deal over. Price back up to £799.
I would personally avoid ANY HP Omen product. I bought one and had to return it because I found these issues:

ISSUE 1- Battery life is AWFUL! I did a 3 cycle usage test after I found the battery was not lasting very long after my first couple of days using it.
I did follow the first use/charge instructions.

So, 1 cycle equals full charge then full depletion of battery.

Test Cycle 1: 1-hour of non intensive Gaming and internet surfing until battery depleted.... got just over 3 hrs life. HP claim up to 12 hours!

Test Cycle 2: just internet and Word and a lot of idle time... Still just over 3 hours.

Test Cycle 3: UNDER 3 hours for internet and Word use! Battery life was getting worse after just a few days from delivery.

I phoned HP directly to complain... this is what they told me, and I quote them: "It's not a fault, the marketing team, like all other computer company's marketing teams, exaggerate the battery life so as to entice sales" !!

So it is an industry-wide practice that is unregulated!!

And later I was told that to achieve the advertised battery life times (up to 12 hrs), I would need to "run my computer on DOS and shut off WiFi" !!!
This is really amazing isn't it, how they lie and get away with it?

ISSUE 2 - Because the screen is backlit with LED you do get backlight screen bleed. Its a big disappointment... and annoying.

ISSUE 3 - The chassis is cheap plastic. If you are picking up the unit and squeeze the left side while holding it, it squeaks! Cheaply made in China I discovered.

I would stay clear of HP Omen. There are better laptops than this to be found and priced well.
