Currently at £1099 from 3rd party sellers due to stock. Do you guys still think this is worth it?
I swear now much more worthy to playing on gaming laptop than desktop, because the friggin' miners can't put 10 graphic cards in.

If your laptop has thunderbolt 3, yes.
Is it a good idea for me to buy this, along with a decent vga, connect them to my laptop then connect them to a monitor for gaming purposes? I know it sounds like a pain and ppl would recommend getting a pc but just for the sake of argument, is it viable?
You gotta buy this for £200 then add another £280 for a worthwhile graphics card (1050 Ti's don't count as their performance is shocking for 2018 tbh). All just so you can play Minecraft at 200 fps instead of 150 fps.
£20 is a fair price for this rubbish, just to test and then would go with the rest of my junk in the loft.

Reduced to clear. Seems a great bargain
I'd say it is cold. For that money you could build, even buy a better pre-built one. Or add 50 more and get OMEN by HP 880-020na including up to 3 downloadable games and a free keyboard. The one I've linked is performing tiny bit worse with games, the CPU is overclockable easily, has better GPU with more memory, the RAM's speed is higher, the motherboard has more slots for upgrades, plus 500W PSU.
The AMD would come ahead while multitasking. So I'd throw that 50pounds in.

If link doesn't work, look for OMEN by HP 880-020na Gaming Desktop - Radeon™ RX 580 in HP store.

Took the plunge and bought this after much research... picked it up today and first impressions are great... had been looking for a much needed upgrade to my 5 year old PC Specialist Vortex laptop and the spec on this was the best for the money. Equivalent PCS kit around £300 more. Missed the VR Headset deal but still good compared to what else is out there. Only thing missing is a SSD drive but can upgrade that relatively cheaply in due course.. Thanks OP...

Considering buying this (because its a good deal, and John lewis 3 year warranty), but read many posts about HP products overheating due to poor design, or their build quality being poor.
I don't need a gaming laptop, a lighter laptop with less capable GPU(like mx150) would be ideal, but cant find them yet. May be I should wait.

yes it would be fine, although the 1050 is low end of that range, the 10 series is optimised for VR. So even a low end 10 series would beat a 980ti on performance. I have owned a 980ti, 1060, & 1080.

Not strictly true, yes WMR headsets can run on low spec but once you get …Not strictly true, yes WMR headsets can run on low spec but once you get in to gaming the required spec is the same. Arizona Sunshine on wmr requires at least a 1060 3gb with i5 4590, recommended spec is a GTX1070 with i7 6700K. When you add in the Rift can use ASW to make 45fps look like 90fps i'd say WMR actually needs more power to run games.The thing is WMR isn't suitable for gaming anyway due to the design, when you move about the visor moves making the screen go out of focus. It also gets incredibly hot, you can feel the heat on your eyeballs.


That's not my experience as far as visor movement or heat goes, it suppose it depends upon which headset and the shape of your head.

I bought this about 8 months ago or so... runs overwatch, pubg etc fine! Upgraded mine to 16GB and replaced the mechanical drive to an SSD.
I posted this deal a few months back cause I bought it for the wife. Cracking laptop but mine didn't come with the SSD but was 599 from John Lewis. I would say that now it may be worth waiting a couple weeks for black friday pre deals to pop up as usually some good things around this time.
My daughter has this laptop and it runs games like PUBG, WoW and other high spec games. She has this for uni and has found it runs all the programs she uses.

Only thing she is not happy with is the logo on the lid is a metal sticker , its not etched in, so its started to peel.

I'm confused, this is i7 yours is i5 so isn't this more powerful ?


Well this laptop is tailored towards gamers, and having a GTX 1060/i5 combo would provide a better gaming performance (since the GTX 1050 Ti is bottlenecking the i7 here). That being said, if you maybe wanted to do video editing of some sort, this i7 would be better than an i5 since it has hyperthreading.

I checked it’s parts on its oem sheet and in parts it totals £1500

im sure people will dispute that, and that’s ok, but for the price pre built I feel it’s reasonable
For around £1050, I would go for a build with a six core Intel i5, 32GB of Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB, running at DDR4-2666 memory (I'm assuming the HP has 2400) and a 6GB GTX 1060 (my part picker is otherwise quite similar to the one above but with a cheaper SSD. Keep in mind that the HP is steel, very heavy, and very large on a desk. I like the aesthetics of it, myself, and that's the selling point, for me. The case, alone, used to retail for £550, now around £300.

I gave heat, though, just for the originality of the thing.
