Can someone tell me what the difference is between the above laptop and this one.It is £100 cheaper but I am not sure how big a difference there is between them and if they are worth the money. Any advice would be appreciated.

£800 for a GTX1050 isnt worth it.. cold


I've checked and apparently they do send you the rest of the laptop too.

The HP has a newer processor that runs at a higher speed and a newer and more powerful graphics card. Given the choice, the HP is a better buy.

That's the old model on the eBay shop (prone to overheating).

I would love to be able to build my own laptop but I am a 65 year old women who knows a little about computers but not enough to build my own. I thought there might be someone on here that could tell me if they were any good or a waste of money. I want to be able to play some games like Fallout or The Witcher also to do some editing of my photos.

Unless you specifically need a laptop for gaming, then a desktop is cheaper & faster.

This comment gets posted on EVERY laptop/PC post. It's cheaper to build a house yourself but if you don't have the skills or knowledge then it's not going to happen.

Hi I'm looking for a laptop in the same range as you. I've been researching for a week now, I've found that prices drop down in mid December by quite an amount, also a new range of cpu processors (coffee Lake) are coming out right now so lots of laptops will be outdated and hopefully sold cheaply. As the new processors are the biggest performance jump in a decade.

My conclusion is that I'm going to roughly decide what I want then watch the market and buy in abut 6 weeks time.

Hooe this helps.

In direct response I don't think this is a deal so it gets a brrrrr cold.

Thank you, I appreciate your sound advice. I will try to hold off but my laptop has died a death and I am lost without one.

Got this laptop and can confirm the build quality is good. Price seems a little steep though especially with 8th gen processors out.
