It's higher price at some other retailers but it's the lowest I've seen it for so far it could probably come down more with the 1050, 1060, 1070 and 1080 graphics cards coming out in other laptops but they don't seem to have budged much in price so far.

This is a good deal, I don't know whether to wait until January to see if they come down any more

Also, for £50 more you can get the Dell Inspiron 7000 with twice the storage on the SSD, twice the RAM at DDR4 2400MHz and twice the VRAM on the 960m

I would wait until January for the 1050Ti laptops...

Direct from dell they have 7% off in the sale with 'save7uk', you can use 6% top cash back, but I would ring and speak to an advisor, I have bought 3 laptops from dell in the past and they always give about £50 quid off the price if you ask for the best price.

Pretty crazy to spend almost £800 on a 2GB 9XX based machine when the 10XX series (with its vast performance advantage) is already here....

Err, price?

Yeah, but you have to take a wider view IMO. £780 for this is not an insignificant amount. You buy one of these and it will last you what? 1 maybe, 2 years before you start coming across games where you have to turn down the settings? And let's not forget what's coming in 2017. Star Citizen is going to bring a 960m down onto its knees. If the 10XX range was only minor improvement like 9XX over 8XX, then sure, it's fine to go for the older chip, but the performance jump with the 10XX is huge. The benches for the 1070 for example are extraordinary. You might also even see laptops with Intel Optane in 2017 and tnat really will make a difference in games with in between level loading times.

I got the GP72 6QF LEOPARD PRO 17" laptop (its the same spec's) and grabbed it back in August for £800. Its superb but a few drawbacks / potential issues for some:

DVD Drive: For me, complete pointless and if I didn't have my extended warranty for 2 years, I would swap this out for another bigger hard drive. I check with MSI and apparently this would void my warranty (who knows).

Upgrade the RAM: It came with 8GB and its borderline acceptable these days and with me doing development, I needed to upgrade. After checking with MSI support, it was OK to remove the sticker on the back where a screw is in place that said "void if removed". I upgraded it to 16GB of RAM and its just fast. A very good Idea from the start

Killer Nic Software: One of the main reason for choosing this over most if that finally I would have a Killer Nic card in the machine. Always wanted this for a few years. If you plan on Keeping Windows 10, when the anniversary edition came out, the Killer Nic software suit used almost 100% RAM. It had issues with the latest Windows 10 and currently im just using drivers only which sorted the issue. Gutted by hey, I can use the PC again.

Linux (Ubuntu in my case) is a nightmare to Install: Yep weeks I have been dring to get a dual boot going and after so many patches, fixes and all sorts. It worked. Kind of. Its all to do with Nividia card and how the drivers are. When in windows they have a thing called Shift Mode that keeps the temps down. Not in Linux and trying to use 3rd party apps dont quite work. Also, the Main bug with Linux is that when you shut down, the Laptop doesn't actually shut down, you have to hold the power button in to turn off. I found this out the hard way when I was commuting home, got home and found the Laptop on for about an hour in the bag Its fine but im not going to have Linux installed if it cant shut down.

Keyboard: its an oddly layed out keyboard and some buttons are bigger than they should be. On odd thing to complain about but when you are in the zone programming, the # key is the same size as the enter key

If you OK with these or know work around (please let me know) its a blazing fast bit of kit. Loads within 8 seconds (I do have hibernate on mind) and its great for gaming as well as for work. Playing Battlefield 1 currently and its pretty good considering its a laptop
