Feels like a slightly strange hotch potch of a laptop to me.

If I want a strong video editing rig, then I want much more ram and storage and if I want a really strong gaming experience in 2019 I want an improvement on the 1050ti as the 8750 will absolutely sleepwalk though games whilst the 1050 is fighting for its life.

Because it sits somewhere in a kind of purgatory between a gaming rig and a video editing rig I'm not totally sure who it appeals to and as such how the price point sits.

That’s a good one for sure

Well please with it, if that helps.

Probably not worth £420 more, but let's see:
- gtx 1050ti instead of 1050 =£30
- 128gb ssd instead of intel optane=£30
- i7 8750h instead of i5 8300h=£100
- 17inch instead of 15inch=£40
- new instead of refurb=£50
- 7200rpm HDD instead of 5400rpm=£20
- 2 year warranty instead of 3 months=£25
- 2400mhz ram instead of 2133mhz=£10

Those are the main differences I could spot, prices are what I'd consider each bit to be worth over the nitro's (e.g. I'd pay £30 more for a 1050ti over a 1050).

Comes in at £305, so not worth it imo - I've seen a fair few better deals than this one OP posted, although perhaps not ones that are happening right now. Main point with this deal is the niche combination of an i7 8750h and 1050ti - seems great for cpu intensive tasks that are helped with along with some better graphics, such as photoshop/editing? (Which they did state)

Are you referring to the £680 Acer Nitro, in the sale for £500 thread as they are refurbished ones??

If so, loads!!

This is a 12 thread, 6 core i7 whopper, with a 17.3" top of the shop eLED panel in it, that sells and is selling, everywhere else for £1140-1199

There is no comparison to a 15" screen, i5, hence why I popped it up, as the specifications for the current deal price, not seen at less than a grand before and that was a naff brand!!

Thanks for the info pulis, how are you finding the screen, as it has the later eLED panel in it, the one, similar to the high end HP 17.3" ones, which seems to be Fab for all uses that need a decent viewport & bit of power!

So a £350+ Q3-2018 6core / 12 thread Intel CPU, that wipes the floor of most made, is redundant.. please do not apply for a job anywhere else in tech, apart from Curry's, they need staff like you...

Too right. OP has seen one spec and a low red bar chart, jumped the shark and gotten a little defensive, bless him.

If you want to game at 1080P, there are far better options for less.

Well I'm no gamer, I do however do a bit of video and a lot of photo editing. I used to buy IT for a major utility so understand the basic needs for a basic end user, I've bought PCs for cad and imaging systems etc. All I can say is with the one I have which is slightly different model, it's on about 15 hours a day and it hardly get hot, it has a key to press which doubles the fan speed should I be concerned too. The screen looks fine to me and video playback is impressive. When I first opened it I wasn't too impressed with the looks as it does tend to feel plastic but it's sturdy enough and my mind was chanced on that as I move it a about a lot. The raw basic speed make it a joy to use and never slows down - I tend to downloads lots of "stuff" and update websites while having about 5 browser windows open.

Hope that helps, not added heat or taken it away as my comments are probably for the brand not this exact model. I would certainly put it up there with any other brands I used for quality.

Almost right.. bless you...

Of the 4 x i7 17.3" laptop specs VS the money we have spent, that are under £1400, this is up there, nobody gets defensive, check out what gaming laptop I have (see all the other deals for them) VS this, then you might see, its about the value here, compared to the others, with less features or specs, after all, its a deal site, not a social media dating site...

I ordered last Friday and received it yesterday got it for 750 when they had the make offer option. Beast of a laptop, running well cool.
Does look nice. How upgradeable is ram? Looking to Photoshop and vid edit - mainly the latter.

Could not agree more, a laptop with an I5 8300 and a GTX 1060 would be a much smarter buy as both would cpu and GPU would bottleneck around the same time.
I would avoid this laptop unless you can find it for cheaper, around £700. Otherwise you can find laptops with 1060 6GB for under a grand easily and they blow this one out of the water. It's an okay price but not a deal.

Haaaaaaaaaang on this build has "a key that you press to double the fan speed if you get concerned" this sounds absolutely awful . So if I forget to do it or can't be bothered does the unit explode? Sorry but this sounds very archaic, the controller for the fan should 100% be automated and adjust its speed accordingly.

Just because you don't understand the concept doesn't make it a bad idea.

As it is the laptop run silent & cool - perhaps that's because the fans are only running at half speed? although they are still auto controlled and I can adjust them in the setup as normal.
I've never had a real need to use the button, it's an option and having probably bought 20,000 more laptops than most people in my time I understand what heat does to processors and components seated around them - anyone who suddenly can't connect to wifi might understand that :-)
So I like the option of having extra air flow to keep the system as cool as possible if for example I'm converting a video and leave it running. When I do that I'm not concerned about the extra noise from the fans when they are boost. Not sure in fact if it's extra fans or an increase in speed.
Seems this gets hot just doing updates. 6:05 ....

Sorry! you just get used to the attention seekers on here. All well used Laptops get warm and the longer you use them that gets worse with dust and wear on thermal seals. By using my "magic" button I hope to make this Laptop longer than my last ones. That's why I like it.
