Aww, this is exactly what I was after apart from the 1050 being the 2gb version instead of 4gb. Still a reasonable price though, particularly as it has an 8-thread i7.
Very poor construction! Flimsy DVD tray and very poor speaker quality. Not listed on the Scan website is the mention of back-lit keyboard. According to MSI it has a white back-lit keyboard, but if you call Scan they don't know if it has or not. Only good thing about the laptop is the 2 year warranty.

Speaking from experience owning one or a review you read?
I would call and ask if it has an iPS screen I'm surprised it doesn't most MSI's have this?

For the specs it's a good deal but the ips screen would make it a deal sealer.
2Gb 1050 is a little under powered so will struggle with most AAA titles. For casual gaming on the go it's not bad for the price. CPU is pretty good. I'm sure there was a similar laptop posted recently with the 4gb 1050ti for around the same price.

Not sure I've seen any i7HQ + 1050 Ti models at that price, but I posted this one recently hotukdeals.com/dea…601
Unfortunately it's gone up by £150 now. Wish I'd bought it instead of spending too long thinking about it, grrr

Maybe that's the one I saw. It is tough making a decision as something better will always come along. Could wait a lifetime though. Good luck in your search.

I hesitated to pull the trigger on the Asus mostly due to comments about a constant noisy fan...maybe with a gaming laptop that'll be unavoidable? Got fed up of waiting for the better deal/Black Friday so got the MSI as that kept going up and down in price and this is the lowest it goes at the moment. (Note: you can save £50 getting a Grade A used one from saveonlaptops but wouldn't recommend as it reduces the warranty)
BTW if anyone is wondering, I ordered one and I'm really pleased with it. I've been playing GTA V with no problems and also use a Mac OS emulator and emulating for app development is a breeze on this machine.
I like the display even though it's not QHD or anything too fancy. Brightness levels are also good. Fan noise is low for regular use - only starts the louder boost fan when gaming/intensive tasks or if you press the fan button.
Only area for improvement is the 128gb SSD gets filled too fast - couldn't fit 70GB of GTA V on it... so very useful having the 1TB HDD.
There is a bit of bloatware but it's easy to remove. The Dragon Centre app is very useful for controlling performance.
It's not that heavy and battery life looks like 4 hours if using battery saving mode. Otherwise probably half of that if gaming.
I'm tempted to add RAM for what I use the machine for. But I'll leave it for now as it voids the good 2 years and extra free 3 months warranty that you get.

Also Scan experience was very good, product came on Monday when ordered on a Saturday. DPD tracking so you know exactly when its coming. Box was very big and excessively padded.
