Someone originally posted this deal for the bigger version here: hotukdeals.com/dea…295

I think this is a better deal because it's £300 cheaper, plus:
- Bigger one just has i7 CPU, slightly better gpu, g-sync, better refresh rate (but wasted on that screen because poor response times (according to notebookcheck review), ghosting will disadvantage you in gaming anyway), and slightly larger screen (same res meaning actually less sharp)
- John Lewis quotes battery life as "Up to 12 hours and 30 minutes" as compared to 6 hours on the bigger one
- Added care for just £35 as compared to £75

Great deal, wouldn't say better than the 17" but it depends if you want a 1060 i7 or a 1050 i5.
its not necessarily a better deal - just different

response times seem to be very similar between the two you are comparing and the 15 seems to have poor colour space
the battery life is never going to be double either

Yeah I didn't mean that response times would be better or worse, just that review mentions ghosting which makes me feel the 120hz might not be taken fully advantage of.
Quoted battery life times do seem questionable (as always) but I would expect the 120hz, i7 and 1060, larger screen to consume a fair bit more power combined
Where did you see about poor colour space? Thanks
Will this actually be that bad with the hp MRH or do you think it’s actually going to be worth buying the 17 inch version which is £300 more? Thinking of getting this laptop to have some mobility with the availability to play VR and building a pc to play more heavy demanding VR games then.

not sure on this specific model but on EVERY 15inch review i have seen its reported
the 17inch review mentions that the 17inch has been improved for colourspace so perhaps its also been improved in this model as well - fingers crossed i guess

For VR you would probably be better off with the 1060

arent both the cpu and gpu below spec for vr on this one? not sure on vr
There is so many mixed reviews with people saying the 1050 and 1050ti is ok but 1060 is what vr should be used with. The cpu is fine for vr from what I’ve read. Just thinking I could save £300 and go with a smaller screen with little different cpu and the 1050. And put that towards the desktop build.
2gb 1050 + vr = no chance.. it’s a decent price if you sell the vr headset, but not great and not as good as the other deal.
May buy it and sell the vr then. There’s a lot already for sale which is the only thing that worries me
Mixed Reality headsets can even work off some integrate graphics. Oculus Rift - you're looking at 1060 to take advantage of.

The screen on this is terrible. Alright for gaming, but impossible to use for any projects that require colour accuracy.
Think it would be worth keeping then the mixed reality headset? Just looking at it as it’s free and could actually be pretty cool to have ( since it’s free ) will mainly be used for 1080p gaming and general usage. But also VR. On the move.
If you could safely sell the headset on for £300, it'd be an amazing deal.
However it looks like you're more likely to net £200 (plus risk of bad buyer)

This spec laptop for £500 is good.... But not worth the hassle or risk IMO.

Still voted hot tho.

Youre correct, I was mistaken. Thank you

good deal this. hot!
Was going to post this deal today but you've beat me to it.

Just wondering if anyone thought it was a good deal if you can sell the VR for around the £200 mark?

I'm not a massive gamer so I don't need massive spec. Hoping the 1050 and i5 would be plenty for me.
Does anyone know how long these two deals will be available for?

Received the laptop today - so far just played some Overwatch and it played flawlessly! Really happy to have got a gaming laptop for this price, and accidental damage cover for peace of mind.

Update: I've been able to overclock the monitor up to 108hz! Makes things smoother, nice when gaming. Very cool! Apparently no frame skipping from UFO test, and I haven't noticed any bad effects. Might reduce battery life.

If anyone wants to give it a try, use CRU and add 108hz (or your desired rate) as a "manual - LCD reduced" timings refresh rate (or up to 96hz with native timings). Might be possible to go up to 110hz orhigher with manual timings but I haven't tried. Restart, and right click on desktop. Go in Intel graphics settings, display, and choose the new refresh rate. Got the idea from this thread:

Hi all, a little unusual but does anybody have a seriial number for the HP reality headset that they could PM me? It's for nothing sinister other than the cashback process through HP requires a serial number, and I've sole mine without taking note of it! (yes, not very bright). Either way I'd be grateful if somebody could give me the format so I can fill in their forms, thanks all happy gaming!
