Do not pay £829 for a 3GB 1060 when you can get a 6GB 1060 for £799 from box:

Yeah, 3GB VM 1060 and by the looks of it only a 256gb SSD, with no HDD.
Have a look at the laptops deals at Scan, son-in law just got an I7 1050 TI 4g Asus gaming PC with extra bit for £799.
Also it has both a 256g ssd and a 1TB hdd plus 8g of ram.

Fairly big performance jump from a 1050Ti to a 1060, and the i5 will make little difference

More to factor in than just which card it comes with.

Prefer the build of the MSI ones personally.

Not bad. Will I get 2 hours out the battery in gaming with screen turned off? (Thinking Vive use)

The 1060 3gb is infinitely better than the 1050 ti, they arent even close to the same performance.

Partly but the card is the only thing you can’t upgrade later on and are stuck with.

Now it is today yes, snooze you lose and all that but it wasn't when I replied above. I guess the days of "cheap" 1060's is drawing to an end as 7th gen stock gets cleared out.
Can anyone recommend a 1070 laptop?
Was thinking of geting a GM501 Asus Zepherys

A lot more going on than just the GPU. For one thing, if you're gaming then go for an i7 if you want a chance at keeping up with most modern games a few years from now.

Get something that feels right in the hand, too. MSI (or at least the upgrade of the one in OP) suits me but a lot of people harp on about the build quality of recent Alienwares like the 13 (plus that OLED display makes all the difference).
I managed to grab the 1050 version of this laptop in Amazon Warehouse for £530 a few months ago so not sure how great this price is...

See what notebookcheck.net have to say about it, their reviews are very informative and they recommend a couple of competitors to that Asus that you may wish to check out:

Only thing I've read is the screen looks washed out. But minus screen its good specs add an i7 quad for 100
