Ok, so the GPU is last generation but you get 16 GB of RAM,a 512GB SSD and the real star of the show, a 4K UHD screen - covering 100% of the sRGB colour spectrum and 88% of Adobe RGB.

Granted, you wont be playing many games on this at 4K, but it's perfect for Photographers, Graphic Designers and 3D animators/modellers

    Do people actually buy these laptops? Madness.

    The large SSD and internal Blu-Ray drive are nice luxuries, but I'd question whether 4K really makes much difference at 17.3". For a laptop clearly intended to be focused on gaming, you'd do better with a 7-series processor and GTX 1060 (or even 1070) instead, for similar money. This isn't a *bad* price, but there are better options around IMO.

    Because they have the money, and it shows well they can make it all work in a laptop. Look at the 21inch Pedator laptop for instance, and that has a 9k price tag.

    Are you referring to the 4K screen? If so, I don't disagree - that was my point about "nice luxuries" - but there are better ways to direct your money if you're not going for all-round top-specs (which this isn't).
    need a laptop for use during day not so much gaming but browsing doing some books a general type any recomendations as to a good manf ?? any pointers cheers all

    that is by far not a decent deal in any way. Way overpriced for such miminal spec especially given price you paid. Even at a £1000 you would be overpaying

    Over paid :-) I didn't say it was a deal for everyone, I said it's a better deal then the OP and it is by far. It'll be be still doing it's job 5 years after the OP one is dust and it'll do a better job now. Sure Acer will do cheap if that's what you want but a good deal needs more then cheap it need quality too. I take my £1200/5 years against Acer £1100/2 years any time.

    Also pretty sure someone might get mine cheaper if they try, I didn't as I need it quickly for business.

    I agree there are better options for gaming at this price point (not sure you're going to find a 1070 for that price though?) But as I stated in the post, for Graphic designers etc, it's a decent option. The 4K screen will definitely make a difference in that context.

    I appreciate the comment, Pullis, but I have to question why you bought a laptop with that spec for business? Seems like overkill IMHO.
    The way this is getting colder and colder suggests that there is a hive mind mentality around here, with people auto voting cold based on how cold something already is.

    EDIT: ironically, I accidentally voted cold rather than hot and can't see a way to undo that

    Most manufacturers will cater well for what you want. Asus, H.P., Acer, Dell. Apple (if you're familiar with the OS)

    I'd go for at least an i3 processor, 8gb Ram, 1TB HHD (possibly a small SSD - 128GB or there abouts)

    Hope that helps

    A 1060 is the more likely graphics chip at this price-point, agreed (it's probably in the region of another £100-£150 in most cases for a 1070), but I wouldn't be all that surprised to find the occasional offer that includes a 1070 for this sort of price.

    Agreed re. the 1060 - definitely the better option for gaming. Put this up more for design professionals (the 980 isn't a slouch at that either tbh) The screen, ram, processor and SSD combo is a good deal for those guys I reckon.

    Will keep an eye out for any 1070 deals - sure I remember seeing an HP Omen floating about below the £1300 mark not long ago, can't seem to find it now though...typical!

    I knew it would be voted cold tbh - This does seem to be a gamer-centric forum where anything below a 1060 that's above a grand (generally) gets voted down.

    I didn't post it for gamers as such, more for design professionals and in that context, I think it's a good deal.

    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

    I seldom vote anything down, Didn't vote, it's just that I was looking at laptops for around £1200 the last 24 hours so commented on my findings. To be honest anyone gaming shouldn't be looking at less this latest processors unless they know what the need. 4K ? waste of money, DVD writer can do without it, duel HDs nothing but trouble. BIG plus is at the CPU type big negative is the brand. It is what it is decent for games for 12 months.

    Fair enough. Got to say though, I don't see the point in comparing a laptop bought for business to one specced for design and and gaming. Different uses for different situations and all that.

    P.S. my last Acer lasted 8 years

    4k is utterly pointless on a screen that size. It's just dumb people thinking they have to have the best stuff that buy this kind of thing
