I’ve been looking at gaming laptops this week, considering the hardware that’s packed in to this, it looks like a great price comparatively! (Yes, we all know you could build a much better desktop for this price).

Any other recommendations for laptops of a similar spec near this price?
Edited by: "JNormus" 10th Jun
Interested in this, my Dell laptop I've had for 5 years has given up the ghost, i7 and payed £549 back then, must have been a sale or something.
I have this 7577, but with full HD screen. Good performances, especially with undervolting. But DELL did a lousy job with fan control, they become really noisy after 50 C° on CPU side and they continue blasting on full speed for like 10 min after your stop gaming. Even though thermals are way down even after 1 min
Right, i know this post will attract you techy geniuses, so can you help a thickie.......
Yet another of my PC's has died and i'm looking for another.
What are the sort of specs i should look for in a tower pc and can i get a reasonable one for £500 - £650 ish.
I am tempted by the sound of SSD's as i'm fed up of waiting for the thing to start.
Any suggestions gratefully received.
Sorry to hijack this worthy post, but i'm hoping at least one of you will know this.

I would aim for a gtx 1060 6 gb and either a intel 8400 or ryzen 5 1600 or 2600. SSD is definitely worth getting even if it's only a 240gb which would be good for keeping prices down. Honestly it might be a bit more that 650 but not loads more. You might be able to get away with a cheaper build depending on what you play but for 1080p 60fps on decent settings on AAA titles I wouldn't want anything less that a 1060 6gb.

Good luck.

Oh by the way if you're not interested in gaming/editing etc then you should be fine to find a decent build in that price range.

Nah, Dell has just ramped prices considerably.
I would actually much prefer a 1080p screen. It's just too much to push 4K for this hardware performance. You'll either have to turn lots of settings down on modern games, or run at a lower resolution anyway and have scaling. Potentially both on some titles if you are after 60FPS.

Of course this would also be very noticeable on a screen meant to be viewed quite close up.

Definitely get a small SSD to install your operating system and programme files on. 128GB will be plenty. You could even go with a 64GB if you don't intend to install much more. It is so much quicker and response times of programmes are much better too. It depends on your motherboard and how many SATA ports it has. If you have plenty of ports for connection then get a small dedicated one just for the operating system and programme files. If you are struggling with room as you have lots of other drives then get a larger SSD and partition it or share it. Drives include any internal hard drives and optical drives (CD players). Try and pre-plan the build by noting which hardware you want to install and get a motherboard with enough SATA ports on. It doesn't hurt to get a motherboard with more SATA ports than you need just in case you want to add more at a later date.

What’s with all these laptops having the old 7700 rather than the new 8 series chips. I’ve just got mine from PC specialist, yep it was £1650 but GTX 1070, 16GB ram, 2TB SSHD and 256gb SSD with i7 8850h, g sync monitor with 144hz screen... can’t find any laptop close spec to this for cheaper or even £500 more. Pre built Laptops atm are outdated.

Also, this deal... why do you need a 4K screen, this will struggle to run most games at 1080p maxed out and achieve over 60fps, never mind 4K

What chassis did you pick?

Watch that battery float
May I thank those who have helped me with my 'which pc specs should I get.
Now I know what to look for.
Cheers.

Any tips on undervolting I leave mine on when not in use on a laptop fan tray running nicehash.
The 4k screen is more for watching videos, TV shows, movies etc. Better to maximize graphic settings in games and run on 1080p than do 4k and reduce it.
I got the HP pavilion power 15 equivalent spec except with the 1050 4gb and 3 year warranty for £1070. Couldn't justify the extra £250 this would cost with 3 year warranty pack though as i hardly game nowadays except the odd CS:go session and is more bulky ( use as work laptop) . Don't see how it should cost £250 more from 1050 to 1060 though.. mark up is insane. Also anyone buying from HP online should ring them up when placing thr order, they give better offers than advertised. Unlike Dell who barely budge 1% discount even on bulk orders over 25k
1060 will struggle with that resolution in some games at decent settings.

Do you have any idea what it is for? I know most people recommend those Ryzen 5 2600 CPUs etc but spending £700 on a PC is way more than necessary. I do plenty of video editing full HD etc (though not gaming) on my £400 build from 2012 and I'm only starting to look for an upgrade now. Considering this I'm pretty sure a £350-£400 pc now should be more than enough for most people

Just had a look. Much better with the 8750h but still, I’ve not seen any laptop with the 8850 like mine but it has been out a month.

It’s a beast though. This was my 3Dmark score. Scored better than my desktop which has 1070sc and 6600k. I just wouldn’t buy a 4K screen laptop personally since not many films are true 4K but also it makes you want to game in 4K but let down by the specs.

Also I wasn’t just on about this laptop. I went to returned mine as turned up with corrupt windows 10 and couldn’t use the hard drive etc but got it fixed etc. Anyway, every laptop I look at even £500 more had this 7700HQ, bar the MSI GP73 at Overclockers for £1300, 8750h and 1060 6gb but 1TB hd and 128gb SSD.

Good laptop, great screen, but 1060 with 7th gen i7 for 1150, thanks but no thanks...
Good price, but personally I would check out the Dell outlet where you can get an Alienware with a 1060 or 1070 for about the same price with a years warranty etc.

Take a look at the Defiance XS II. 18.6mm thick, and has a (at least partially) metal chassis, i7-8750H, 144 Hz screen, and can be configured with a GTX 1070 Max-Q. I'm looking at one now configured with the 1070, 16GB RAM and 1TB SSD (500 M.2 + 500 SATA) for £1681. The good thing about PC Specialist is that you can lose the Windows license if you don't need it, saving almost £100
Are there any visual differences between the IPS 4K Screen & The Full HD Screen? I was looking at this laptop a year or so ago and the price seems to have stayed the same... Unless they brought out a 2018 Model? I remember the one I was looking at had a shiny premium IPS Screen like the MacBrook Pro has however in the pictures attached on this one It looks like a cheap Full HD Screen or is that Just the stock image?

Might as well pay £40 ish more and get what I got, proper 1070 and the 8850h and 2TB SSHD and 256gb SSD etc

Use Intel XTU or Trottlestop. Do undervolting step by step until it will crush during stress test. That voltage - 0.02V is you stable undervolting value. Mine is 0.130V, resulting in about 10 degrees lower temps

i5 8400 as someone previously said £130
h310 mobo can be found for about £50
8GB but 16 would be ideal
1060 6GB
and of course get an SSD, it makes a massive difference 240GB

You could pick up Alienware 15 for less (with discounts) . though wont have the 144hz IPS screen...
I bought my daughter the 1050ti version of this. Luckily from the outlet store for £564. Price was due to a mess up with the 1060 version I ordered for £650 which they could not find the laptop. Meant to be a scratch and dent but looked new without any scratch or dent.

The screen is nowhere as bright as my Alienware 13R3 with 120hz TN Panel. watching a film on it however was far better on the Inspiron since an IPS screen
