In my opinion, we have here a decent gaming laptop, adequately priced (I think) :P in the hopes it can deliver good gaming performance on games such as bioshock infinite as well as getting me by at uni.

specs listed below (I hope)

so yeah! We all now know what I think but I'm wanting your options whether this is good or not deal - hmmm, time to pick some brains

It should play all games but I would expect some high end titles to run at low-medium settings at 1080p. The 860M is ok but its not a powerhouse, just need to manage your expectations.

Not bad price although personally if I was buying one I'd rather pay the extra £100 for a quad core MSI.

Agreed - for that price i'd be expecting an i7 Quad core tbh.
I know because i bought a dell inspiron 17r SE (17" Geforce 650m graphics, quad core I7, 1TB hdd, 8GB RAM) for £650

Massive thanks to those that have taken time to comment thus far:) I'm just looking at my options for a new laptop that will enable me to play some decent titles like titan fall and the latter. As well as a good all rounder for office type work, so I can keep on top of me dead lines whilst cheeky gaming hehe.

Furthermore, I'd be gratefully thankful if you have any better proposals for a laptop that would share these common traits.

So this is your idea of a good time at uni? Times have changed since my day! When I were a lad back at uni....

Don't give a foook! How lad-ish you are. Don't get me wrong, I love to go out but like to have a game or two on quite good-ish games. Hence why I want something portable so more along peasant
p.s. what's my fun meter got to do with you anyway :P

For an extra £50, why not treat yourself to 16gb ram and quad core i7?

So is this accurate?

BioShock Infinite 1920 x 1080 - Ultra preset + DX11 (DDOF)
top 10
GeForce GTX 860M
41 fps
GeForce GT 650M
17.45 fps

Crysis 3 1920 x 1080 - Very High preset + 16xAF + 2xSMAA
top 10
GeForce GTX 860M
18.9 fps
GeForce GT 650M
8.4 fps

If so, I believe the term is 'burned'?

if you can, it might be worth waiting for the glut of Alienware laptop returns that always occurs mid-January
Massively overpriced on retail but some bargains to be had in Dell Outlet.
But beware - laptop does not always mean 'portable'!

However, trying to hold out as much as possible, like you've pointed, as I fear something good may come along during the January sales lol (hopefully).Ahhh right, is that because of the weight and screens of some laptops then?

+1 for Dell Outlet, but not sure you will get a current gen Alienware 17 around this price range. Ive had good luck with Outlet though - had my XPS L702x for 3.5 years now

Having done quite a bit of research I'd say this laptop is a great deal but definitely add £63 option to go for the far superior i7-4710MQ processor.

As stated above the GTX 860M is a great value gpu and should play most high end games now however it's at it's limit. Beware though their is little future proofing if you like games to be played at the highest settings, in 2 years time you will be looking for a new laptop.

For most people who like playing the latest games but can lower down the settings if need be then this is a good spec at almost the cheapest price you will find.
