This is correct

Rich441 h, 32 m ago

& the 1050 ain't much better


LOL! Oh my god no, the 1050m obliterates the MX150
Super laptop with a quality screen and the GeForce MX150 is way way underestimated. This is a good deal. Well done poster.
Oh look didn't take long for a gaming snob to turn up . The MX150 is perfectly capable of playing games affordably. I've got two laptops with this GPU and it plays everything nice at full HD, yes you sacrifice some of the quality settings but it's about £200 cheaper than a 1050 based laptop & the 1050 ain't much better and most people take the pee out of that as well. 1060's are stupid money too.

Sure I will add some spec. " they dare calling it gaming laptop " good is only screen IPS.

Imho the MSI PL62 7RC at £599 from Ebuyer is better value, it doesn't have an SSD but does have an M.2 so one can be added for £50 which is the same ball park as this and has a proper cpu in it not a U class.

Seems a decent price.

Oh I personally wouldn't, but you could get some 720p gaming out of this with a suitable low profile card.

Very poor specs. I'd rather buy an i3 laptop for about the same price. Or try getting something second hand.

You can even get a much better one built for just around the same cost (including a monitor and a basic GPU):

CPU: Intel - Pentium G4560 3.5GHz Dual-Core Processor (£57.54 @ Aria PC)
Motherboard: Gigabyte - GA-H110M-A Micro ATX LGA1151 Motherboard (£40.50 @ Amazon UK)
Memory: Crucial - 4GB (1 x 4GB) DDR4-2400 Memory (£40.75 @ Amazon UK)
Storage: Hitachi - Ultrastar 750GB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive (£79.00 @ Amazon UK)
Video Card: Gigabyte - GeForce GT 1030 2GB Low Profile Video Card (£66.02 @ Ebuyer)
Case: Raidmax - Viper II ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: EVGA - BT 450W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply
Monitor: Sceptre - E205W-1600 20.0" 1600x900 60Hz Monitor

Total: £283.81

Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

That'll let you play esports and quite a few games on low settings. Just find someone capable of building a pc, it's a lot easier than you might think, especially for those who are comfortable working with computers.

ultimately it isnt really "buy now pay in 12 months" but "buy now, pay no interest for 12 months"
ive used them in the past also using discount codes and had no problem ordering a DSLR camera and also my PS4 from them (had a £100 off £400 code for the camera and £60 off £200 when the PS4 launched)
so buy this now, and you repay the minimum each month. it's a credit account so don't miss a payment or it'll be on your history.

I find Very are usually quite expensive, but they tend to do some nice offers and will send customers some pretty nice discount codes if you havent used them in a while.
do not buy their extended warranty. you simply cannot cancel without contacting them and they'll automatically take the money out.

Bought a new switch plus 2 games and within 2 weeks they sent me that my first payment was due. No discount added either. When I called them up customer service pretty much laughed and said there was nothing they could do and that I had to write to an address to plea my case. I had planned on paying it off in two payments in February and March. But it's the fact they didn't hold their agreement then I have to write to someone to "plea my case" that makes me wish I just had waited or just paid cash lol.

I'm not really disagreeing but can see this situation remaining some time until it's not cost effective to churn out lower resolution panels... hopefully won't be too long now as 4K is so prevalent now and people will perhaps start to demand more. There's no incentive for manufacturers to change unless customers stop buying them and clearly they're still selling them.

I care because I want manufacturers to stop shifting crappy 1366x768 pixelated to hell screens in to laptops to shift old stock. Most basic users don't know what they are missing out on until they are shown the difference and then they can truly appreciate the benefits of Full HD on a 14"-16" screen size.
It wouldn't actually make a huge difference in cost of manufacture either as you can easily pickup replacement 1920x1080 screens on eBay for £30-£40 when replacing damaged/cracked screens.
So the cost to manufacturer will actually be a lot less than that.

It's time to take a stand and SAY NO TO 1366x768 on laptops, at any cost.

An SSD is lovely and keyboard/touchpad need to be good enough but it's ultimately the screen you will look at for the rest of the laptops life.

Once you've sat a user in front of a Full HD screen they'll truly appreciate exactly why a 1366x768 screen is so poor in comparison.

I don't even accept less than 1920x1080 on my smartphone nowadays, let alone a laptop

Malabus has it been a good laptop so far? Does it have an optical drive?

May put this one on the wish list and wait for a sale.

Yes you can use a GPU to accelerate/offload rendering workloads. Although you wouldn't realistically do it on such a system.

If you like analogies it's like calling a pond a swimming pool.
Sure you can do the same activity with both of them but would you want to?

A 1050 is the absolute bare minimum to be considered a gaming device imo.

Where can I obtain this outdoor life you speak of?
Is it an expansion pack?
Link please.

Yeah. Happens all the time with gamers. They always blame a games poor performance and then are informed of this. Can probably change it in the bios also.

I guess technically it's not! But there's nothing to stop your dad/daughter/mate... whatever, from buying it in their name, then you paying them back! I would only recommend using family and close friends though.

CarlottaMonroe10 m ago

Do they even ship electricals outside the US?And then there's customs.


It does say that this item is delivered to the UK. Not sure about customs though. Also, I assume the price includes delivery as $550 is nearer to £417 than £535.

Thanks for the deal OP - without customs, it's a pretty good price for the spec, especially considering it has a 256GB SSD which I think would cost in the region of £70-£90?

I'm not sure how a GTX 1050 is built for 'next-gen' gaming. All in all this is not an overprice. But I don't think this classifies as a deal either, in fact I think for £724 I would rather have a better GPU.
Whats the best 1080 gtx 17.3" , preferably 2k 4k screen priced at the moment ????

4k on a 17.3" maybe a little much though 2k ... i think could be a win!
