980 will become obsolete very soon. At this price try to look for atleast a 1050ti.

Obsolete in what sense?
It looks like the 980M is 40% better than the 1050Ti:

You appear to be ignoring the sentiment and market share stats. Very convenient.

If you actually look at the stats properly, the 980M has a higher user rating. But you're saying I should buy the significantly slower card because it has a bigger market share? Okayyyyyyyyy

in real gaming no more that 15/20% at the very best

This ticks most of the boxes for an affordable gaming laptop. Sure you'd like a newer GPU and 7 / 8 series CPU, but you'd need to add over £100 to the price and choose a less reliable brand.

no, still better than a gtx1050ti but at this price I would expect a gtx1060 instead

It's almost as if I were joking.

Not much in it between 1060m and a 980m, but the appeal here is the 17” screen, large ssd, cpu and 17” screen. I’ve not seen this beaten for value, largely because its last years tech.

How have they implemented the dual-screen setup? Does the second 17" screen fold out?

Have you seen the Razer Valerie?

Ha! Dual 17” screens are the future.

Intel HD graphics has a large market share, get that

In terms of raw gaming power the 980m is a very good laptop GPU but it is less efficient, hotter and overall less powerful than the 1060. I also wouldn't spend a grand on a GPU, which because of it's age, which will have less driver support going forward.

I'd still take the older card if it's faster, personally.

Decent price for the overall spec. Sure, you'll get a 1060 laptop for that price but not with 16gb ram, a 256gb SSD & i7-6820HK.

Good for gaming, great for video editing, 3D modelling/rendering and possibly some graphic design work if you can calibrate the screen.

Heat added

FYI, the price has gone up to £1029.97
