Having tried this in a regular Currys store (tempted by the £699 sale price) I can confirm that it's a really nice machine in terms of a premium feel, sharp (but glossy) screen and what feels like a decent track pad. Specs wise it's pretty impressive, especially for this price - but the 940MX graphics doesn't make this suitable for 'modern' games at a decent visual level. This 940MX config is roughly half as powerful as a 950MX and significantly worse than the power efficient MX150 found in more recent models.

All in all I'd say that £629 is excellent value, and worth it if you're not going to use frequently for gaming.

Good find but I would wait for stronger new processors as 8550u is not strong performer as many people complain

who ?
I bought this with the eBay 20% voucher for £624. It's great.

I sold my very decent desktop for a more mobile device and it handles incredibly well.

4k video editing is pain-free. It's very responsive.

I can definitely recommend it.

Hi how good is the screen?
Is the laptop quiet and does it get hot at any time?
Screen is great. No complaints. Its quiet under regular use. Rendering will ramp up the fans but its still quieter than any of my previous laptops.

You are mixing it up with 7th gen processors. This is 8550u which is the newest generation for intel. They are quadcore and benchmarks have shown that they match or even exceed some of the desktop grade processors from previous intel generations and perform really well only being rated at 15W TDP.
In store only?

I am not mixing anything get your hands on i7-8550u or i5 you will know it …I am not mixing anything get your hands on i7-8550u or i5 you will know it 's perform . not so great that why they trying get rid of them selling all over wait for better one that my opinion . bench mark is one thing real life other . they usually placing them in one core so you have one memory in one split


This is the worst, most nonsensical thing I have ever read.
Looking for a laptop (web developer) that could handle a working from home situation - remote login to work machine, handle basic Adobe CC products, be able to connect to two monitors at home etc.... would this fit the bill?!
