So for the majority of time that extra CPU is just wasted. In terms of the GPU 2 gig is more than enough for most games. The vast majority of the games wont go over this anyway those that do you can scale back the detail to suit the machine. You are working on a 15 in screen it is not as if you are trying to output in ultra high to a 4k monitor. If you are that serious about gaming get a desktop or expect to pay 2,000 for a top range gaming laptop. This is a great laptop for what it is design to do play games on the go and to gives you a mobile platform. If you want to run battlefield and stupid resolutions you should not be buying laptops in the first place unless you have money to burn.

If you had to choose between this or this: https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/9S7-16J942-011-MSI-GP62-7RD(Leopard)-011UK_2078098.html

What would you go for?

My use is a mix of gaming and video editing in Premiere Pro and After Effects, so that's pushing me towards the MSi, due to the RAM being 16GB and the CPU being better. But the advantages of that 6GB VRAM and generally superior GPU has me stuck on which one to go for.

I owned one of these and sent it back as its only good for 1 hour of VR and then it throttles and the games are unplayable (Robo recall / superhot), Non intensive VR it works well though. Also it just cuts out at random points although i might have received a faulty unit but thought i would give my 2 cents on it. Also for non VR this is actually great had GTA V running with no issues for over 4 hours but i brought it originally to play VR in living room as moving pc all the time was a pain in the ass

Don't buy this laptop! Terrible and cheap plastic. You need to clean it every time you use it, as fingerprints are very visible on it (my hands are clean, while I am using it). Believe me - you probably will be better off paying £50 extra for a laptop with similar specs made by Asus or other company using better materials. Also GTX960m is comparable to GTX950.
Edited by: "Damians" 9 h, 11 m ago

That's a cracking price, the 960m indeed qualifies as a gaming GFX chipset in my opinion.

If your monitor is only 1080p then it is irrelevant what the maximum possible res of the game will be because you will only be able to play it at 1080p, so, as others have said, having more than 3gig isnt going to be of much use

ZahrinAdwa28th Sep

http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-980M-vs-Nvidia-GTX-1060-Mobile/m15596vsm164336It's no where near to the 1060



It depends on the type of 1060 as well. The 3gb max Q is probably weaker then a 980m for example (although it would keep all the advantages of being a newer card). The full 3gb version vs the 980m is very close so that extra power will matter.

In the end, for this laptop, I'd worry about that CPU. Laptop CPU's are still much weaker then desktop cpus.

The rocket league game promotion ended on 25th September.

TLDR- 1050 deserves more credit, price is good enough to be classed as a deal in my opinion, will run most/all games on low/med

Laptops of this spec IMO are great for secondary gaming machines or people on a budget. The 1050 isn't the best card, no but it will run most games on medium and pretty much all games afaik on low (Even runs low end VR games like Superhot and keep talking), i have a similar spec (Omen) which even ran PUBG pretty well before its recent 'optimizations'. I use mine when going to friends to have a bit on a LAN mainly play overwatch which runs great on high.

Crappy spec for a gaming laptop.
But it's a good price for what it is.

But I think you've possibly missed that this laptop also comes with a 1TB spinny disk, so there's no need for the cloud just yet. Presumably you would keep the OS and a few programs on the SSD, and your Steam library et al on the rotating platters of doom.

Lol I understand about price of sad but personally I wouldn't pay 800 pounds for a laptop with old technology hard drive. If I'm paying that much I want ssd and not old style HDD with extra weight and slower speed. For me they could add double ssd say 256 and forget about the old HDD and that would do it. Lighter laptop and more ssd memory

Thinking of recommending this to someone who needs a high spec laptop for Autocad work. Any reason not to? Thinking the ssd can be replaced with a bigger one at this price. Their current one has a 940m in it so this will be much better? Not upto speed on the gpu's.

You have to be patient although it took me a day to secure mine go to the 15% off thread on HUKD. You'll get the extra 15 off

Then there's time on there that they update stock, the site is very buggy - for mine in particular it kept taking it out of the cart... saying it's gone but when I came back 30 mins later to the same laptop it was there and somehow it let me checkout. Weird bugged website but you'll easily save 300-500 quid and people that have got it from there say that the laptops are normally so immaculate although it says "scratch and dent" they find none.

In business you have take a long term view but some might say it's not powerful enough. The person takes Ms Excel to the advanced levels so processor was the main thing, but it'll need more memory, I can get that a lot cheaper then direct from dell. But if you have ever bought for someone else you know that their own choices affect the decisions and she wanted slim, light. Only two choice really this one or a Asus Spectre

​My point was that its not that long ago. My 550 dell from 2012 is still incredibly powerful, more so than same priced laptops showing on HUKD atm. My second point was a general point on Intels being cheapskates putting poor cpus after the third gens which are more focused on efficiency than performance.

If you want to game 'properly' on a laptop then you need to be prepared to spend £1500 for mid level and £2000 and upwards for desktop level performance and in the end its completely wasted on your small laptop screen anyway. I know a lot of people who swear by gaming on laptops but apart from 'on the go' gaming they are largely a hugely expensive and due to the lack of upgrade ability, pointless endeavor.

They haent been a 'pointless endeavour' for me.....quite the opposite in fact.

I upgrade my MSI every 3 years and always get a decent return on my old one. I have a GT80 which has i7, 32gb DDR5 dual SLI and 18" screen...it is incredible and immersive to play games, watch films or listen to music via the dedicated amp & DAC. Yes it cost me £2500 but I'll get back half that towards next one. So yes outlay for laptops more, but get a decent brand and they'll hold their residual value far more than a desktop, as gaming laptops are always in high demand, they are very popular for a number of reasons.

I absolutely love gaming on it, chuck it on bed & away I go and the missus gets to watch the television.

I don't want a big ugly PC tower in house, and I don't want to take over TV in evening every night so a gaming laptop perfect compromise. Plus I love strategy games which are largely rubbish on consoles.

When I go away with work, which is a lot, I can take away with me and have some gaming time at hotel.

So, your pointless endeavour comment is well off base

If anyone has one of these, how bad is the fan noise and is it constant?

I have a 970M in my laptop and have often been surprised how well games run at 1080p compared to my GTX 1070-equipped desktop running at 1440p. Also, my GTX 970M overclocks by +350MHz (capped at that) and surprisingly runs at the same temp under load as when it is not overclocked (69C); getting close to GTX to 980M performance for no penalty other than perhaps slightly more power draw.


Out of interest, what laptop do you have?

saveonlaptops.com are terrible, we bought a laptop from them recently and a week later we rang and they said it'd just been shipped, another week passed and we rang and they said they don't have the laptop

We ended up getting the same laptop from ebuyer
ebuyer.com/754…0uk
Which is a good deal

Same specs as the laptop here except the SSD is only 128GB, but it's also £35 less...

Otherwise the build is lovely, other than the 'loose' trackpad, the chassis is lovely and is like a bigger version of my HTC M9. I didn't set the McAfee up and loaded Avast instead, all seems nice and quick so far.



think ill pass then seen a cheaper HP 255 G5 that does just the same for a basic laptop

worth the money is the screen ok ?

The Dell is a 1050ti which is slower than the 1060 in benchmarks tests. The true gem of this is the 1060.

Seems decent enough. Always dislike how these laptops never tell you the SSD speed though, as some are not much better than standard HDDs.
