Now I'm not the world's best for knowing too much about laptops, but I've been looking at getting a new laptop for a while now (and due to my Argos card being clear preferably from them).

I've been looking at this and the other omen laptop on Argos for £699.99 ( argos.co.uk/pro…823 ) and they've pretty much over night been reduced by £100.

If any one knows any further reductions for Argos ill do my best to keep this updated to whatever the best price is that we can work out, but for what id like to call a good spec laptop with dedicated graphics, id say its pretty good

*also not sure how long the discount is around for

I bought this laptop about 3/4 months ago when it had the Xbox Elite controller for free.

Good laptop, although don't expect it to play games without turning down a lot of settings.

yeah fair enough on the price, I was only looking through argos because as I mentioned ive cleared my argos card
For a gaming laptop costing £800 or more, I would now expect a 1050ti as a minimum.
It's not a bad spec but tbh for this pricing I would be looking at the Dell outlet and getting a lot more for similar money or less...

Agreed. Although, the cheapest 1050ti available now is around 850 from pc specialists if you don't need an OS. You get for this price a 1080p IPS screen, i7 7700HQ, 12gb ddr4 ram (I'm on a budget), 4gb 1050ti, 500gb hd, 128 ssd.

Expectations are fine but what is the reality of the marketplace?

That isn't the same is it? Doesn't mention the 128GB SSD that this one has.
How is this a deal compared to the Argos one? The only difference I see is the 128GB SSD and Kaby Lake CPU.

I'd rather save £130 and pay £699 for the Argos one if I was after an Omen (not that I would be as the screen is crap and the keyboard so hot as to give you sweaty hands).

I think Dell has lost their way. They don't sell any laptop setting that makes sense e.g. do not have ssd + hdd (you have to choose), good gpu but bad for the rest (or vice versa), thick like a brick, price are not cheap either for their specs. I think hp omen really hit the gaming laptop range at the moment, and Asus seems to follow suit (although I don't trust asus brand for laptop)

I got the i7 version of this for £730 from HP a few months back. Love the laptop!

No, according to the oculus website a 1050ti as the minimum.

This is cheaper at John Lewis at £805 and you get a 3 year warranty is well.
£769 @ Costco if you know anyone, or £807 if you don't (5% surcharge) great returns policy there

I watch these high power laptop deals come up on here and I'm tempted but they always get shot down by OP.
I'm not a gamer but i do use Photoshop and stuff like that. For £700 what do I need to be on the shipping list. I apologise if this post should go else where but it seems a lot of experts comment on these type deals. cheers

for content creators you would need a better, more colour accurate monitor then most laptops can offer. I would suggest a decent spec PC and choose the monitor that suits best

This.

But as a side note, these Omen laptops come with very good IPS displays compared to most others. 92% of sRGB coverage.

The main issue with these screens on the Omen is the high response times, especially GTG. There will be a noticeable blurriness to fast moving images. They're very similar to the base 1080p screens that dell use on the Alienware 15", and I had to send mine back because of it.

Wound up speccing my own on PC Specialist and can't complain one bit. Similar price, but comes with a 1050ti instead, and you can save £50 for a 1050 version instead which comes with 4GB GDDR5 as opposed to the 2GB that comes with the Omen.

The difference in response times can be as high as 15ms GTG less than the Omen too, which makes a big difference. This Pc Specialist screen is more in line with the Acer V Nitro it replaced, which had an excellent but somewhat inaccurate display.

Nope, GTX1050 is too weak. If you want a cheap and small Oculus rig:

I like how they are pushing 750, 850 & 1050 as gaming. Not even the Ti. The 1050 will be great for now, but it won't last long in terms of performance. Why do you think they sell another 5 cards that are more powerful if a 1050 is "just fine".
Edited by: "bulletfoss" 20th Aug 2017
So people can play at higher resolutions/higher refresh rate monitors. 1070s/1080(ti) aren't needed to game at 1080p/60, which is the screen this laptop has.

This version direct from HP does not include 128GB SSD. BE WARNED. Made that mistake myself.

Again this version without 128gb SSD. For the extra £25 you might aswell buy from Argos and get the SSD. Cuts down load times massively.
