@londonguy this is a good price, heat given, but what do you think of PCSpecialist?
Configuring an Optimus VII to a similar spec as this HP comes to £698 but has the GTX 960 instead of 950, has a mini display port which allows higher res/refresh on an external monitor than HDMI, and using PCS allows cost effective tweaking such as swapping in an SSD.
Not many discounts but sometimes there are £15 vouchers about.

​I bought my gf a PC Specialist laptop, specced it low in terms of hdd, and didn't need an OS so it came out at £612 or so. Already had an OS license and SSD, opening the Clevo chassis they use does show a lot of cost cutting, one set of wires was stuck with tape.
First boot showed a line of the screen was dead so off it went back and the screen was duly replaced.
Now the good side... The performance is awesome she mainly plays Cities Skylines but even some modern games run fine, just look at benchmarks for 960m. The processor is good and the battery lasts about 3 hours gaming and 5-6 just browsing etc, the screen is lovely it's a good IPS screen with decent colour reproduction.
Not sure if it will last but it does have a 3 year pick up warranty.

Aren't they just self build laptops?

Very much so. The only downside seems to be the dim screen.

I ordered it last week and then cancelled after deciding I wouldn't play many games on my laptop, so it was overkill for my needs, but if you're planning to do some gaming then it's great value.

​no, my point is you get what you pay for. if you want something future proofed pay out a bit more. If you are going to but a gaming laptop, then best to get something that'll run games for next few years. I change mine every 3 years and get around 30-40% residual when I sell it.....the laptop you've linked is an OK laptop, people should just be aware it won't play games with full bells & whistles

i wont be even playing games , just looking for something with a decent spec , why do people play games on computers when you have ps4 etc?

Yes they are, is that a bad thing?
They do put a 3 year warranty on their builds.


I'm not interested in gaming but I do want to run a 1440p external monitor. It's hard to confirm the output res they support since sometimes machines with optional dedicated graphics leave the integrated Intel graphics routed to the HDMI port and that (often) doesn't support 1440p over HDMI.

well its fine for that..... well I love gaming on laptop, mainly for games that I can't play on console, which is RTS eg Total War, Civilization, Starcraft, Company Of Heroes, Cities, Homeworld, Galactic Civilizations - to name a few.

All of these you can only play on a PC / laptop............I go for laptop so I can just chill anywhere in house, whack headphones and play these without disturbing the missus

Does anyone know if this will play Napoleon Total War to a good standard?
