Being an OEM 1070 will make it one of the less desirable cards on the used market. Tbh this doesn't seem all that amazing of a deal; laptops direct have had the same CPU+ram+HDD+1060 6GB for as low as £580. Upgrading a 1060 to a 1070, and throwing in £20's worth of SSD doesn't seem like it's worth ~£170 extra. On a related note, has anyone noticed the increased volume of GPU sales on eBay? Has the market finally peaked?!

Emmet_Dallat

Mate can I upgrade the ram and would you recommend upgrading to an i7 for video production? I'm new to PC, bored of Macbook :0

I bought this for 698 on the ebay deal, from argos and it is a solid PC. Literally no complaints apart from small ssd, if you want a good gaming pc for cheap get it

When Sony or Microsoft go to AMD, they tell them "We want you to design us a custom motherboard with graphics, CPU, memory etc. we're looking at paying $XX for each chip" AMD can go away, look at their CPU and Graphics technology and build custom chips for them that strip away features that will never be used in a console. They can solder the chips straight into the board so don't have to provide features and connectors that ensure it will plug into thousands of different motherboards. Lots of little things they can trim off in a specialized custom console that'll save them lots of money. Then you've the fact that they can sell 75 million of these things. That's a dedicated factory line that can just keep churning out units nonstop without expensive retooling and downtime you get when switching between products. That's more money saved. Finally they sell these chips direct to the console manufacturers who themselves then sell the consoles at a tiny markup (or even a loss). Game stores also have a very tiny markup on consoles, making most their money on games. Compare this to a graphics card where AMD sell the chips to someone like Gigabyte who build the graphics card, sell it at a heavy markup to Ebuyer, who slap on their own markup. Lastly, these PCs are many times more powerful than games consoles but there are a few factors which may not make this clear in direct comparisons: -Compressed youtube swallows up a lot of fine detail. -There is diminishing returns in graphics, it takes increasing amounts of power for slighter visual upgrades. -Most games are designed for console limitations then ported to PC nowadays. PC gets better resolutions, frame rate, better textures and some nice graphical effects but it doesn't change it being designed for weaker systems so it doesn't take full advantage of the extra power. "PC First" games like The Witcher 3 look significantly better on PC but Assassins Creed or FIFA generally get a frame rate and resolution boost but not much else.

thedecalhut

Absolutely spot on. I have a Xbox one x and also a Alienware alpha r2 with a gtx960 graphics card. The Xbox games are more expensive and also not as many games come out for the Xbox as they do PC. Pc always gets the updates and dlc first although Xbox are starting to enhance some older games for Xbox like red dead redemption which I think is great. As for the graphics there isnt really any difference between both but I like that I can adjust the graphics and update the alpha when it gets old.

stsonic

I am guessing a 1070 can't play many modern games at 4k 60fps though. My rx vega card can barely hit 60fps on far cry 3 with ultra settings at 4k. A 6 year old game.

It's labelled as a gaming laptop and the GPU is bare minimum in that regard. For general laptop with odd bit of gaming it'll probably be fine.

No sh*t! Even faulty LGA 2011 motherboards go for £60+ on ebay (annoyed) It's absolutely insane! There are Chinese knockoff LGA2011 boards, though I've read that they aren't proper x97 chipsets. As such they only support ancient Xeons, not Sandybridge-E nor Ivybridge-E; even then, they still cost £50-60 =/ Such a shame as there's some amazing LGA2011 bargains on CEX; the 4820K for £50 for instance! That's almoSt half what they go for on ebay!

WessexUnderwater

I have Oculus Rift and the main mobo consideration is that it takes up 3 USB 3.0 connections. So you probably want at least 6 overall. Given what what you say about VR/gaming being some way down the road, I wonder if a good strategy would be to get an AMD Ryzen 2200G or 2400G with one of the new X470 chipset Mobos. The CPUs have an integrated, cut down, Vega GPU, and come in at £80/£126, and are really well reviewed, good for all but the most demanding gaming. I say it because if the onboard graphics could see you through till Autumn you'll have the new Nvidia cards to choose from and hopefully some cooling of the current price craziness.

whopaysrrp

Basically I want it mostly for Microsoft office. But at some point I will be getting a vr headset. I want something that will load instantly. I will be playing the odd AAA game at some point. I will give that website a try.

WessexUnderwater

Hey dude, tell us a bit more about what your most demanding apps are and what your budget is and I'm sure you'll get some helpful suggestions. For what it's worth I've always found mobos the component where you can agonise too much, especially if (as i5/1070 suggest) you are looking for a sensible blend of upper middle performance and price rather than a bleeding edge system. Mid range mobos are much of a muchness once you get your needs straight. If you select your CPU first, identify the mid range chipset to go with that. Clarify your needs around the main selection questions - size, any specific connections you need, any new tech that really grabs you (NVMe is the obvious candidate at the moment) and it largely becomes a question of shooting for bargains and looking at review scores. You might want to think through whether overclockability means a lot for you, as that's where higher end boards compete - but you can get a sensible OC out of a mid range board and it I find the way specialists like Scan structure their product selection very good at helping narrow in on the right choices, even if you then go on Amazon to buy it.

whopaysrrp

I wasnt trying to troll. Just interested. The support though is a big thing I am guessing. Basically I bought an ASUS i5, gtx 1070 deal from laptops direct. They sent me 2 and neither would turn on so I have been refunded. Now I am looking at building a system. But things like processors and graphics cards are the easy bit, Its what motherboard to get that is giving me the headache. I want to get parts from amazon for the extra cover.

They are not duty free and you get UK/EU warranty. Not everything is cheap but they often have decent bargains to clear to meet targets. Ancillaries are always expensive though. I got a brand new pair of Sony WH1000MX2 NC BT headphones for £180 recently, a couple of laptops a few years ago, iphones etc all at a significant discount to High Street/online prices. And you don't have to be travelling. Airport staff can also buy stuff. If you want current prices you can always ring your local airport branch and they'll tell you the price. And no, i don't work there, but I am in an airport a lot.

You'll know that the 4GB will never manage photoshop with large photos, multiple layers and so on. On the other hand, I know first hand with experience of the 4GB devices that they'll function very well for everything else. I owned the SP3 from around its launch, and only upgraded to the 2017 SP last Black Friday. My workflow on my SP is pretty much the same every day. Office, NVivo, Mendeley, Onenote, Web, SPSS (Although that's being used less these days), Spotify, Skype, Media consumption. No graphics work, which is why 4GB works for me. Even if I were 'running out of RAM' the swap is sufficient for my purposes that I don't notice it. That will not be the case when you've got heave RAW manipulations going on. It sounds to me like the Surface Book 2 is the machine for you, but yeah, hopefully a deal will swing your way soon.

daBluone

Got a powerful desktop for my design work so not sure the Surface Pro i5 8GB RAM is essential as I want it more for the tablet form factor. But 4GB feels like it definitely wont be enough. Kicking myself hard for not jumping on a Surface Book 2 deal/price glitch now as I'd much prefer a true laptop form factor that can become a tablet but not liking the alternative 2-1s when compared with Surface Pro.

mcav

The chances of getting a 4GB device to do reasonable in depth Photoshop is slim, but given that one of your alternative device will be a new iPad pro, it seems like the kind of photo editing you have in mind will work more than well enough on the 4GB surface pro.

The difference is minimal between the two regardless of newer tech and more cores - cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i5-8250U-vs-Intel-Core-i5-7300HQ/m338266vsm223877 Whereas the difference between a gtx 1050 and using integrated is huge. Frankly I don't see why anyone would buy the 8250u over the 7300HQ laptop I linked. If your doing browsing the cpu speeds are virtually the same, and if you want to play games you go for the 7300HQ. Literally neither target market would benefit from buying the 8250u laptop. The gtx 1050 is up to 400% more powerful than the inbuilt 620 in the 8250u. Heck even the inbuilt gpu (630) of the 7300HQ is better!

LankyChris

Depends what you're planning on using it for. The 8th gen i5 in this is faster and has more cores than the 7th gen in the Asus you've linked.

MagicBoy

Lenovo figured that one out after getting mass complaints from corporate customers, including me. I did get a private admission from the area manager that they knew they'd screwed up. Hence the W541 which appeared a few months later with proper buttons on the same dumb trackpad for the really important workstation customers. They really didn't sort it out properly until the x60 series.

Gkains

Actually, the backlit keyboards on the T440/T540p are quite tricky as they've hidden the mounting screws behind the keys and you have to slide the front of the keyboard to get at the screws underneath. You're meant to use a special tool, but any flatheaded screwdriver can do but might (will) scratch things a bit. Stupid design. Speaking of stupid designs... That all on one click trackpad is a total joke and makes using the touchpoint almost impossible. Either Lenovo do zero user testing during design or some project manager who never uses a touchpoint was really stubborn. Anyway, sorted on my T540p by buying an 'unofficial' proper 3 button trackpad from Ebay. Problem with the 'unofficial' bit is that there aren't really drivers for it. The generic ones work fine, but Win10 insists on downloading and installing the newest (i.e. wrong) one. More stupid design choices, this time Microsoft's.

Sorry, but you can't get around the fact that this price is poor for an i5 without discrete graphics card or SSD from the pretty poor brand HP (bought a bunch for work and they weren't even set up correct out of the box. Two different models too so not even a glitch). It's cold. I wouldn't recommend anyone buy it.

True, but there is an option to upgrade it with £25 SSD, but you can't upgrade/change the CPU easily.

With a conventional HDD the performance will be totally hamstrung, so the generation is pretty irrelevant for most people.

What's the difference between lenovo 320s and 520s

There is a big jump of performance increase on the current 8-gen Intel CPU over the few previous generations of CPU. The few previous generations CPU were merely improving the battery life but performance had not improved much for past several years. However on the current gen finally the performance improvement could be as much as 40%, so this should be included in the consideration over buying older laptop.
