Great price for an amazing spec, yes the CPU is a low power edition but it is still fast. I can confirm the screen is 1920x1080 not 1280x1080 as stated on the site. No Operating System.

Review here: techradar.com/rev…iew

"While its speakers could use a boost, this multimedia laptop boasts a crisp 1080p touchscreen, excellent inputs, and solid Core i7 performance – all packaged in an attractive aluminum chassis."

7kg are you mad mate

no not mad. The product data is showing 7.0000000kg.

Does the power chord fall out like many Dell laptops between 2008-2013. Dell really have terrible quality control. Cold.

Shows only 1 in stock

It won't win any awards for gaming power, it can play games just not that well >

Great retailer. Bought an XPS 18 and keyboard and mouse set from them over the last couple of weeks. Stuff all came next day and quick to answer any questions

Dual core i7

id pay a pound for that

Because it's not Apple?

This is the laptop I decided to buy back in September. I added an SSD to improve the overall responsiveness of the machine and I have to say I've been really impressed. Battery lasts all day whilst at uni - it can play all games from the XB360/ PS3 generation and a few of the more recent titles. I was playing Bioshock Infinite the other day at high settings/ 1920*1080 with a consistent 30+ fps.

It's a good 'all round' laptop - especially at the price stated. What sold me was the aluminium body and excellent build quality.

Pros:
+ Relatively cheap for the spec
+ Excellent build quality
+ All day battery for low-med usage
+ Excellent 1080p screen
+ Plays all 360/ PS3 gen games on high settings at 30fps+
+ Keyboard is nice to type on

Cons:
- Quite heavy for an 'ultrabook' (but if you have a backpack like myself it's not really an issue)
- Dual core i7 (which could catch some people out)
- No SSD (easily replaced)

Thanks for the feedback, really helpful. I wouldn't call it an ultrabook, I think there is a category called "sub-notebook"

It's an upper mid-range card.

Can play the majority of last generation of games at 1080p on high settings, but will struggle with newer demanding titles. Can still play those games with reasonable settings @720p though.

All round still a decent GPU.

Damn, out of stock.

I have this at my work and have to say its a really nice machine to use.

Battery can certainly last a fair while. My version has a standard 750G HDD with no ssd cache, this feels like the bottleneck often. This model with the ssd cache or replacing with a true ssd should lead to a rather good machine.

No matter how good a deal, no laptop deal can be a good one if your space bar key's defective. Google this design fault on the keyboard before buying.

For current games yes. But as I said, it can handle previous generation games just fine at 1080p. (Apart from anomalies like Watchdogs)

It can't do 1080p on previous titles unless they don't require much GPU power >

youtube.com/wat…U-A

Avg 24 fps. That's not 1080p gaming.

youtube.com/wat…sLg

Not even full settings at 720p

It's a 720p GPU even on previous gen titles. There will always be some games that it can play at 1080p but for most instances this is a 720p GPU.

BF4 1080p 32-40FPS @ 1080p, obvious it needs a resolution drop to game properly >

My spacebar was dodgy when I got it, but a guy from Dell came round and swapped out the keybaord and now it's ok.

The Acer laptop in the first video you posted contains the DDR3 version of the 750M, which is crippled compared to the GDDR5 version of the 750M found in some notebooks, including the Dell in the deal (as far as I am aware). At higher resolutions (1080p), the DDR3 version simply doesn't have the memory bandwidth to handle the resolution, which is why the FPS are low.

Also, the Acer has a dual-core processor, which will bottleneck any decent card. Crysis 3 really requires quad-core for higher settings, as mentioned in the recommended system requirements.

BF4 runs fine, the guy is playing at 1080p with high settings, with >30fps. I don't know what you're on about there.

About Far Cry 3, see the video below. Guy achieves 20-27 fps at ULTRA settings at 1900x1200. I'm sure at medium/high settings, its easy to achieve > 30fps @ 1080p.

Just give up m8. All I said was the card IS a 1080p card for previous gen (with a few exceptions), but only 720p for current gen.

You said it was 1080p for previous gen, but haven't provided any proof. Also the GDDR5 version is very rare as cited by notebookcheck so you'd have to be 100% sure this Dell has that version. This thread gives further proof that this is a 720p GPU >

tomshardware.co.uk/ans…tml

"The 750m is rather weak, unfortunately. I get 45+fps in RE6 on max settings and 1080p. 60~fps on Blacklight Retribution max settings 1080p. BF4 is pretty rough on it. I average about 45~fps on low settings and in 720p."

LOL, Tom's Hardware!! Full of clueless, ignorant posters. Thanks for the laugh.

Notebookcheck (on the 750M): "The very rare GDDR5 version even beats the GTX 660M. Most current games (as of 2013) can be played fluently in high settings."

Notebookcheck (on the 660M): "Therefore, current games as of 2012 run moderately well in 1080p resolution and high details. Only a few very demanding games, such as Metro 2033 or Crysis 2, may need reduced graphical settings for smoother gameplay."

Notebookcheck's statements are true. (As many benchmarks & YouTube videos prove (see any Y400/Y500/Y410p/Y510p gaming video), provided it is the GDDR5 version.)

"Nevertheless, the performance is usually not enough to render the screen's native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels smoothly, at least not in high details. High settings and 1366x768 pixels, which are interpolated quite decently, are possible without limitations in most cases."

In other words it's a 720p capable gaming laptop.
