The markets changed. You'll be lucky to find the deals that were around a while ago.
That was a bargain, but when I got this I wanted the best for my budget at the time, this has the full 1060gtx 6gb mobile, not the max-q most come with, this also has speedy 1tb 7200 hdd as well as the 256gb ssd, the ram is ddr4 2666 and the screen is 144hz gsync, I still think this is a good deal tbh.
Yup. Cheaper laptops tend to cost less money.
So you bought a cheaper laptop, with inferior spec, for less money, shocking!
I'm sure it's great. It's just £300 more than most people would be prepared to pay for the spec. For example, whilst this has an inferior spec, only 3gb 1060 and 7th gen CPU, it's nearly half the price of this (it's the laptop I have ;) ) and this was way back in June when GPU prices were still daft https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/asus-fx503vm-gaming-laptop-intel-i5-7300hq-nvidia-gtx-1060-3gb-8-gb-ram-256-gb-ssd-69999-amazon-2985767
