You're kind of right, the fan at full power is still noisy. But, the updates mean the fan comes on less often, and almost silently for 90% of the time. Now, unless you're really pushing the processor, it's all good. All the wife does is shopping & office, so for us it's completely solved.


I really don't see the value here. Firstly the processor is a dog, I have a HP envy with an i5-7200U and it was so slow I hated it. I am not talking about gaming just general day to day stuff. The i5-8th gen is so much better it's worth the extra. Only a month ago I bought a refurb Dell 7373 with 16gb ram, 512gb ssd, i7-8th gen, USB C laptop charging, FHD Touchscreen etc for £652. Surely it's gotta be worth a little more?


I started looking at high end laptops recently and all of a sudden Macbooks don't seem overpriced at all. Some of these Lenovos and HPs go up to just under 2k :/ Who wants to spend that much on a WIndows virus backdoor? When buying Windows I always buy second hand cheap old laptops on ebay and upgrade them with a 120 GB SSD and replace CD drives (remember them?) with cheap 1 tb HDDs. You can get a lightening fast Windows laptop for a couple of hundred quid that way.. I found MS Surface Laptop is best value among the high end WIndows machine. Lenovo, HP etc have totally lost the plot when it comes to pricing.


Thanks - didn't know that. Really interesting. I was surprised to read that they do not put MIMO wireless cards into many of their expensive laptops which just seems cheap and results in potentially slower connectivity. Well, Lenovo are on the not buying list now. All laptop makes have their negatives but Lenovo's negatives are piling up.

Mine was being delivered to store for tomorrow. Just had an email "request for refund". Phoned them, apparently its gone missing from the delivery and they won't be getting another one in stock. Sigh. Useless.


Just my luck...arrived today, opened it up and...there's a key missing! Not in the box, just missing... Back it goes. This is now the third one returned - one to Tesco (faulty), two to PC World (wrong one delivered - twice!). I'm going to look for something else...

Intel Core I5-6600K Processor (3.5 GHz, 6 M Cache, LGA1151) - £166.07 @ Amazon (price is exclusively for prime members)
Found 6th JunFound 6th Jun
Price is exclusive for Prime Members Go to 'see other sellers' for the price sold by Amazon Cheapest its been according to 3 camels Positive reviews 4.7 out of 5 stars

Poor choice of CPU in 2018, and at this price it's a terrible deal. Try playing the new Battlefield on this when it's released and enjoy your 100% cpu usage causing dropped frames and poor minimum fps. No reason to go any less than 6 cores right now. If for some reason you do, the i3 series is effectively the same as this but will clock higher.


For gaming if you use a very fast gpu such as a 1080ti this cpu is a fast as anything Intel and amd have irrespective of price and cores. Gane development is stagnant and devs rarely use more than four cores. Of course not everyone uses their pc for gaming. Really? For gaming save your money on the cpu and buy the best gpu you can afford. For gaming at 4k using a cpu like this coupled with a 1080ti won't bottleneck. It's more likely to bottleneck at 1080p. Of course why would you want a 1080ti if you aren't gaming at 4k. For gaming, Intel are still the best along with nvidia.


The 8350K beats this outright for a new build and it's cheaper, but if you've got a skylake motherboard with a low end chip in it might be worth upgrading to this? Still, I don't think this is a great price.


I couldn't recommend these, the 8 series is a much better buy. Far better value and speed.


I bought one of those for around £200 new shortly after they were released. Its been a great cpu, mine's overclocked to 4.6ghz, but I wouldn't pay this much for one now. Especially given there was a big jump in cpu performance with this year's chips. Better off paying a little more and getting a newer i5, even if not the K version. (not considering motherboard issues, that is)

Get dealGet deal

I thought you meant this one. If they’re the same price, I’d still recommend the quad-core 8th gen over the older one. You can always add more RAM or a bigger disk later on but not a new CPU.


The ebuyer G6 Laptop I highlighted has 256GB SSD as well.


Swings and roundabouts as you get double the SSD which is arguably more useful than double the RAM and easily fixed otherwise - the CPU isn’t upgradable so best to get what you can now. Not sure I’d miss that extra inch on the display, but that could just be me.


14 INCH Screen vs 15.6 screen, 4GB RAM vs 8GB RAM but AO one too is a good deal


The AO deal is better still as you get 8th gen quad core as well:

Definitely a risk here, though how big / small that risk is is unknown. If the CPU was being sold directly by Gearbest I wouldn't be so concerned but the item isn't being sold directly by Gearbest - it's being sold by a marketplace seller called "Joybest" (whoever they are).

I bought a £200 laptop from Gearbest as well as various other bits and bobs over the last couple of years. Never had a problem with them. Zapals is the Chinese retailer to avoid - fake items, non-existent customer service, didn't even respond to numerous PayPal disputes from people on here etc etc.

Running full blown Linux applications is one good reason


Would this be covered by Google's two-year warranty on the Pixelbook? Very isn't an authorised reseller in the UK (as one of the reviews on the Very website correctly mentions). I'm currently debating whether to buy this from Curry's (using vouchers, 7% off their £799 price) or from Very (used before, never had an issue).


I've had this machine for 3 weeks now. I absolutely love it, the build quality is great, very light, and thin. I paid £799 direct from Google, and don't regret one bit. Best purchase I made for a while. I already knew what I was getting into with chromeOS, and it's perfect for my needs.This is a great price if you compare it to the Asus c302 which has a Core M3, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB eMMC, and costs £500.

Get dealGet deal

I'm still considering this bundle. The board appears to be the best budget clockable version, and although the 8400 is locked, you could always upgrade at a later date to a K chip which adds some future proofing (for v little extra outlay over the higher end new 'cheaper' boards). Right? The fact they fit the CPU for you is a nice little bonus. I did notice that the 16gb RAM option is Crucial brand without heat spreaders, until you reach 3000mhz option where it reverts to being Corsair Vengeance, at which point things become unnecessarily expensive. Not sure the spreaders make a blind bit of difference though.


If you had posted that would be a much better deal.


Well after all that I brought a used Asus Z370-P and 8600k i5 for £210 with a free artic cooler thrown in just deciding what ram to buy lol. Looking at the 3200 Ripsaw V as a starting point


Bundle is worth about £355-£360 if you shop around for the parts. The deal is therefore a small discount if you want to buy exactly those parts. You could buy similar parts for less, however.


Is it not a better deal to get this bundle with 8gb 2133mhz RAM instead of 3200mhz for £319?

Anyone recommend a 13 inch screen laptop for around £350 ?


Yes I have and I've done as someone else suggested and installed an m.2 250gb ssd. I timed the boot cycle from Windows, reboot and back into Windows before and after the ssd, it went from 2 mins 34 secs down to 31 seconds cycle with the ssd. The laptop overall seems great, good build quality and good spec. I must note I won't need any decent gpu for video etc so the on board doesn't bother me.


Decent laptop however disappointed by the screen, didn't like it at all.


Anyone taken delivery of this laptop yet? If so, what do you think of it? Really considering getting it.

Thanks, I'm in The Philippines at the mo, but I'll have a look I get back. I've got the mobo, I'd just to upgrade the current cpu


I don't understand why this is gaining so much heat. If it was posted as part of a system people would be complaining that it's old and redundant. It's standard retail pricing for this CPU, it isn't cheap. If you bought this, an old mobo, the rest of the parts you will not have anywhere near a decent system for any sort of game, of course it would be fine for normal use. Cheap, but not cheap if you get what I mean.


2 in a raid 1 setup for source material another 2 for a raid 1 setup for final rendered work. If it's for render work, it's unlikely to be simply casual, it may be for a course, or work. In which case raid 1 would be helpful to maintain speed without sacrificing reliability. Depending on the software there may even be a requirement for a scratch file so another SSD may be helpful there as well. Either way there's a requirement for high storage data throughput.


Can't tell if your being sarcastic or not. If you aren't why would 4 SSDs be useful for video rendering?


Sounds about right.. investing in 2 or 4 ssds are probably better... Money well spent for a video rendering setup...


400 for that GPU? O_o lol


You got a very good deal, the gpu itself is around 400 and ram is around 170.

re-googled and a ryzen build for way less (or similer price with a 1070) or coffee lake


where is the coffee lake+1060 deal you allude to?


just did a quick google and the first hit i see you can get a coffee lake prebuild with a 1060 for this money. imo anything that isnt 8th gen or Ryzen isnt worth considering unless its silly cheap. No kaby lake chip and mobo combo is worth more than £120 of the price. a 7400 is probably only worth having if it came free with a cooler. I feel sorry for retailers stuck with Stock of kabylake, but like any form of retailing they need to suck it up and give them the 'discontinued' price tickets they need.

description has been updated fromNVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10


so is it a i5 or i7 description can't make its mind up


Clock speed is Irrelevant, cross generations. 4 gig Vram is fine for 1080p. More is a waste,as Ncrappier knows. (GPU BOSS is as much use as a chocolate fireguard in every use case in history). As I did actually look earlier, this machine was shipped with gtx 950 - gtx 1080 cards. The vendor here states GTX 980, so I would expect that is what you would get. (Not like its uncheckable) Plugging GPU BOSS is like asking your 10 yr old sister to set up your electronic engine management system turbo wastegate controls. To use your language; The 980 beats out the 1060 IN EVERY GAME, but some prat might think other numbers are important. GPU boss could help daft people make more chronic mistakes in the future, if they listen to newbs.


To end the 980 vs the 1060 debate, the 980 beats out the 1060 on most areas but the 1060 has more RAM and a higher clock speed: Not that it matters as this thread has pointed out this rig probably contains a 1050 :/ still, figured plugging GPUboss could help some people in future :)


Motherboard is actually made for the pc model ( G11CD-K-UK034T) by asus, if the rest of their off the shelf gaming boxes are to be gone by. This is backed up on the site with a support list of cpu's and gpu's available as options. Which is why it can get a bit fuzzy. ( obviously the next letters refer to orderable variants.
