I've been looking around for an i7 / 970m combo, and this deal stood out as the best you can currently get.

(The PC Specialist Proteus II works out cheaper with similar hardware specs, but the screen is awful [speaking from experience].)

1TB 7200rpm drive without SSD for £20 less here:

Those voting cold - Please let me know where I can find a better deal! (Looking to buy right now!)

128SSD is an idiotic size for a gaming laptop, GTA V take up 60GB alone and no one wants to play close to grand for a laptop without a SSD.

Check each working day on Dell's outlet around 3pm and you'll be able to find one of these for a LOT less.

A couple weeks ago this exact same spec minus the SSD was available for 750 delivered. I also recently saw the AW 17 with i7-4980HQ and 980M for 995 delivered. These guys like all the other resellers are buying from the same place (Dell Outlet) so if you're willing to be patient, you'll be able to save yourself a pretty penny. That's what I've done in the past and saved myself a small fortune for the various computers I've had/have.

Not voting as it's more of a head's up for you so hope it helps.

Yeah, but there appear to be issues with Alienware from the Outlet at the moment. I've had 2 A 17's in the last few months from them (one to replace the other). Both have failed within a few months and Dell are terrible to deal with. Their support guys don't have a clue (reinstall windows is their only fall back for everything) and their customer service (if you can call it that) is run from India and they don't give a damn.
It's been a complete nightmare to get anything done both time (and that's even involving their exec office!).

Theres a Alienware 18 on outlet right now although its £1300

Yes, I had a similar experience a year or so ago with an Alienware laptop. Dell attempted to repair it three times on-site. This didn't address the issue and so it went back to their factory and they 'promised' me it would be repaired satisfactorily. I took that with a pinch of salt. I was without the laptop for nearly a month before getting it back.

Lo and behold, the computer was the same as before and didn't even power on, despite another mobo, new DC-in jack and wiring assembly. Complained about it once again and asked if the guys even test it at the factory as it was obviously still faulty. All they could do was offer a full refund once the laptop was collected. It wasn't a great experience but I did get my money back on a computer that I'd been using for 9 months.

So, I'd hate to know what would happen if you bought a laptop from a reseller and Dell could do no more after numerous attempts at fixing a faulty laptop - something to consider if purchasing from a reseller as they would likely wipe their hands clean and you'd have a faulty laptop with little comeback if it's outside of eBay's 60 day protection.
