Up to 14 hours battery life? So is that actually anywhere near 14? Anyone know? Even 10 hours would be impressive.

I wouldn't trust HP on their stated battery life. I bought a similar model (omen version) which claimed 10 hours, doesn't even get 4. If you want to benefit from the full 14 hours your screen brightness needs to probably be at 0%, airplane mode on, battery saving mode on and pretty much all the lowest settings which reduces the speed!! I would say it'll probably do max 6 hours running Google chrome and Microsoft word, 3 hours max on gaming.
According to notebookcheck expect 8 hours of real world usage.

Yep, I think battery life statements by laptop manufacturers needs to be investigated in the same way that MPG figures by car makers was. Should be big fines for the computer companies.

My last dell claimed something like 8 hours but I only got 3 straight out of the box and that, within a year, fell to about 1hour. Terrible.

Yea that's pretty much power saving mode + minimum brightness + wifi off + literally not doing anything with the laptop.
I have had a few HP laptops and batteries have always been good
This is a good deal, heat
Who buys gaming laptop with power hungry CPU and GPU and relies on battery life ? A wild stab would be people that believe in unicorns...or that Elvis is still alive.... or maybe people that cant (too stingy to) afford it ?? Cant know for sure, its excellent spec for the price, considering you get Intel HQ and GTX 1050. Excellent find

The problem isn't that the battery life is bad, it's that the manufacturers mislead customers with their figures.

Also, when you're not gaming the laptop will use the integrated GPU, not the 1050, and the CPU will have a low power mode, so it's not unreasonable for people to expect decent battery life when they're not gaming.
Seems a brilliant price to spec ratio. Been looking at a 15" the past week direct from Dell and HP with a good CPU, full numpad and this easily outperforms them, the GPU is a bonus for me, looking for a work laptop which will be used to travel abroad regularly.
Only question would be to anyone tested or owns it is how's the touchpad usability? Nowadays they can be terrible.. any help appreciated
Just saw another on there for for £880 which bumps up the cpu to a i7 and 1050ti. Thinking would be much more future proof.. only upgrades needed would be SSD and ram increase over time.. hmmmmm decisions!

I would say for that price wait and get a deal with a GTX1060 and 16GB ram and i5. The i5 is suitable for gtx 1060/1070

There's an ASUS Rog Strix GTX 1060 laptop posted on here for £683 through Amazon, once you do a return for the VR headset it comes with. IMO its a better deal unless you desperately want to play on battery only (would never recommend this for gaming laptops, has to be mains powered imo).
Can anyone tell me the big differences between this and this? hotukdeals.com/dea…977

This one has a bigger ssd. But it doesnt really matter to be honest. What I would say is the fact that this is from john lewis. There warranty is excellent. Which is 3 years. Its a good deal. I cant call it and say its bad. But I wouldnt want a gtx 1050 on a laptop. A gtx 1050ti would be okay for a push. But I would get the amazon deal. It is really good value for a GTX 1060.
Unfortunately the Asus 15" is not in stock . Kinda have a time restraint as I'm leaving abroad in couple weeks!
A bunch of us picked up the Asus FX503 a few weeks ago for £709 which has the GTX1060. Even though the screen is rubbish on our 503's, it can be upgraded. On this, your always going to be stuck with the 1050. Cold from me.
