I bought one of these from SVP a few months ago, very pleased with it, playing Forza Horizon 4 right now!
I've got one too, I reinstalled Windows on it and it's much much quicker without Acer bloatware although I've lost cool boost app and the dolby app too
I`m looking for a semi gaming laptop for my son for running steam platform games and for schoolwork as well honest lol The market has changed so much since I used to build desktop pc`s i`m all at sea with it
what's it like with a HD as opposed to a SSD? Is it still fast?
Don't buy from laptops direct they are scammers go read all the negative reviews about them before you do. The laptop won't ever turn up and you will struggle to get a refund

I'm not a gamer, but listing (NOT comparing) this CPU's rating alongside, for example, two now very common chips,
the lack of SSD in this makes me think of a
Ferrari engine in a Morris Minor Estate.

No, it won't be, but the Nitro 5 chassis accommodates M.2 so it wouldn't be hard or expensive to add one, more of a pain installing windows as you'll definitely want it as your boot drive

I would define the 1050 GPU as "semi gaming" so it should be a decent fit

The one you ordered doesn't seem like a great deal, I'd expect an i7 for that price.

Whether this one will be good enough for you depends on what you want to do with it, a 1050 will cope with gaming at low settings.

Depends how much you paid. If you paid current price listed of £1299 it seem a bit expensive for an i5 even if it is 9th gen. You'd be better off with a 8th gen i7 with a 1070 which can be had for this money or a few hundred less. Either way it is a much higher spec than this but 3 times the cost so not really comparable

Helios 300 are decent, but the fact that's £1300 and comes with an i5 instead of an i7, only 8gb ram and a 512gb SSD with no hard drive to back it up, does seem expensive ISH

You could spec up a i7 8750h with a RTX 2070 for less from PC specialist if your willing to wait a week to have it assembled and don't mind bigger bezels round the display

It's an issue for sure, you'll get stutters and performance drops in the latest games, especially if your 8gb is single channel. If your spending £1000+ you shouldn't compromise when it costs them probably £20 to install an extra 8gb.

Yes, I was rushing the buy just so I can get it before my trip on Friday but will give it a couple of weeks now to find the best solutions. Deffo gonna go for 16 gigs of dual channel ram, as you say when spending this much you want it to be future proof.

Any experience with PC Specialist, are they decent?
How would this laptop stand up to being a twitch streamer & video editing software like Adobe premiere.

I wouldn't be gaming on it, I'd be gaming on a console & streaming through this laptop using an Elgato HD60 pro.

I would say at least a 1660Ti. It's okay to buy a laptop with 8GB RAM because it's easy to upgrade it to 16GB yourself, costing about £30.

I dont know the company but i adore this laptop. Ive searched for a decent one for ages and this does the job so well. If you want it brand new instead its worth the price

I own a RTX Recoil 3, I love it, they have great reviews on Trust Pilot

I wouldn't pay the extra to have it made faster, I ordered mine on Tuesday afternoon and it arrived Friday Morning! Could just be luck they had a low workload on I guess.

Previously I had an MSI and that was super reliable and great overall
