All Laptop Discounts, Offers and Sale - May 2019
As a strict definition of between it most certainly is between those two products :) If by between you mean eqi-distance in performance terms between the two then it's not.
1% off lmao
I mean, if it's faster than a 1050ti and slower than a 1060 it's definitely in between xD
Just be careful with the Dell, I heard their screens are awful. Maybe check a review of the panel.
it's good you show some numbers, however "between" doesn't mean "exactly halfway". Like 0.44 is between "0" and "1" and still between "0" and "10000". So yeah.. thanks for your point..
Can’t amend title to 899
A great laptop and a hot deal! (y)
Agree - Would have been super handy for my CAD work on site... the search goes on... (nerd)
£1299 at John Lewis
If only 16gb ram. Would be a winner.. Most people okay with 8. But 16 is needed for high power applications. (such as getting lowest possible latency on dj software etc..)
Peace and love
Apologies to all the readers, not sure why I got confused with a 570 model. This is a 560 so.. yes, a 1050ti will be better.
Just watched a comparision video, the 560 was about 20% lower in fps in some games than the 1050 ti.
I was looking at this a while ago. The 560x is marginally slower than a 1050.
thought the graphics were equivalent to the lower 1050? not equal or better as you claim than the 1050ti
Very good price, over £50 in many places elsewhere. Heat! Edit: Also this is an MLC drive so one should expect greater longevity than TLC or QLC drives.
Seeing a message on the site now saying they are getting a lot of automated traffic? Are lots of people looking at this deal? Is this link better? https://www.morecomputers.com/a?pid=MZVPW256HEGL-00000%3E%3ESamsung
Link seems broken....
Don't know why people are voting this cold, could possibly find a good deal. Their Holo 360 action camera is 200 off making it only £99
There's enough knowhow out there to do such a thing medium.com/other-oses/sailfish-os-3-could-be-your-next-mobile-os-71cd32726053 and if they thought it worthwhile Huawei could put their weight behind a new operating system. More likely they will use open source Android and push harder for business in emerging economies. You talk about Linux being the underdog, fair enough, but early on in development Linux was chosen as the basis for AndroidOS before Google even had a foot in. If you buy a Xiaomi phone in China your phone will have Xiaomi's MIUI App Store preferentially installed over Google play. If Amazon prime video can beat Netflix at their own game in India then there's room for Huawei to dominate emerging markets. I think if anything stops them it will be poor availability of hardware rather than software but they have already stockpiled 12 month's supply of hardware in anticipation of trouble with the US.
do you know how incredibly difficult it is to make an operating system from scratch,develop it,maintain it and convince developers to create apps for it? even Microsoft with all knowledge,expertise and resources failed to do that for mobile platforms and gave up. and Samsung tried to make Tizen but very soon realised its hopeless and now only use it for smart TVs and watches. Apple and Google rule the smartphone operating system with Apple being the pioneer..and Apple and Microsoft rule the computer operating system..even the well known,open source Linux never had a chance to compete with them. so it’s not as simple as “just” starting their own operating system.it’s entirely different than Facebook cloning and App developing.
They will just start up there own operating system, do it better, underprice Apple & Google, & take over, the phone world. They already have their own version of Facebook. As a matter of interest where are most Android & Apple phones made... altogether now.
All the Chinese Bots posting Huawei/Xiaomi etc should take a break now ....enough is enough guys..
well probably not the whole Huawei products line but surely if they are refused Android updates,google maps etc etc then their smart phone line is DONE.
Good deal, thanks :) Any good deals for those padded laptop sleeves about?
Cheers DealDroid (y)
looks like excellent value! Nice one @Frank30uk
Rating? Raving? Ranting? XD But yeah, the Ryzen 3 is possibly a better device.
Same here :)
Everyone was raving about the one from ebuyer hp 255 g7, 8gb ram 256gb SSD, 15 inch 1080p hd screen, Ryzen 3 CPU £299.98
Battery life looks to be the only plus with this laptop. Can't really see alot else going for it.
What is the brightness max on this, is the colour gamut really that bad also?
it's metal. https://icecat.biz/en-in/p/hp/3zu99ea/pavilion-notebooks-0192545956086-14-ce0505sa-57433809.html Designed with a new narrow bezel display, this is our thinnest Pavilion laptop ever. A smooth metal finish gives this laptop a sharp, polished look - from the elevated keyboard to the bold design, every detail was crafted for comfort and style.
go into bios under system config. should be able to switch is there. I kind of regret buying the pavilion as the keyboard is not that great in my opinion. back slash key in weird place. function key letters to small you can't see them at a glance. theirs just not enough contrast between the letters and silver keys. I've even considered buying stickers. no problem with the rest of the machine though.
I think there's normally an option in the bios you can select to change the function keys default behaviour. You can get into the bios when the laptop is switch on from cold boot. It'll normally tell you to press a particular button to get into the bios.
Ok, £550 for a plastic body with no service hatch. Excellent CPU. Those on a budget may prefer a Ryzen3 - spec otherwise the same - for £300. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hp-255-g7-ryzen-3-8gb-256gb-full-hd-156in-win10-laptop-3232169
It's not this deal it's your response to people that are looking to buy a laptop but just getting sarcastic remarks from you rather than being sent in the right direction.
done with the fancy words? if it's that good why does it barely have any heat? surely if everyone saw this as a good deal it would at least do better than 43 degrees
What a nice person you appear not to be
Would this be good enough for running Lightroom and editing RAW files and for editing 720p video? My current PC is so old it struggles with editing RAW files from my D5300, or very large files from scanned film.
£800 for mediocre Asus laptop with 1050ti, go ahead I dont care if it's not cheaper anywhere else doesn't make it a good deal
Good company,only negative i can think of is they do not tend to honour any pricing errors.Support was always great for me.
Really they seem to be one of the better ones. I've had no issues but Ive never had to return to them.
Yep, it’s a hard power limit and thermal issue. Cannot believe ASUS are still selling them to unsuspecting customers - they’ll seem to work largely fine assuming you don’t load it too hard but paying for performance you can never fully extract is just wrong.
This is also correct.
for a cheaper option you can get the 2017 mac book air for £650
yeah I mean I definitely wouldn't get this, the price point is so high, especially since it's dual core, and was released in 2018.
Probably the wrong machine for that surely? Most I know who do windows specific app development in VM or do dual boot on a macbook pro.
for developing UWP apps
So what's a good laptop from laptops direct, as ebuyer are a pain if you need to return things, budget £370
I'm afraid they're both equipped with the cheaper LCDs which you'll probably wish you stayed away from.
I got one from Argos eBay. Full 12 month guarantee with it too.
Couldn't send any screenshots on the screen to highest brightness by any chance
Is it possible to connect 2 monitors on it?
Yeah if it has hdmi output/input
Nowadays most laptops have an nvme slot and 2.5" HDD drive, not much need for any more!
Agree with your son I bought a similar model a bit higher specification and the build quality was awful along with screen quality and sound. Mine went back also. The ROG models a few years ago were much better build at similar price point.
My lad has just bought one of these and was gutted by the poor build quality, so he's sent it back today!
I never knew they were a thing... (embarrassed) Thank you.
I had one in my previous laptop and I ripped it out and used the space for an SSD.
Ferrari? I thought the deals was for an overpriced crapple laptop!
Well I suppose not everyone can afford a Ferrari
Thanks op, my fingers were itching for an apple deal to vote cold
The original and best, for those who missed it (y)
No - that one is the earlier 2017 non - touch bar model
Yeah the one I was looking at on very is a slightly better model I think as it's a FX505...... Edit: I have no real clue on laptops lol
Someone also found it for £820 at CCL, including bag/mouse: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/asus-tuf-gaming-fx504-gaming-laptop-core-i7-8750h-8gb-ram-gtx-1060-1tb-hdd-256gb-ssd-156-display-bundle-82064-at-ccl-3232389
Can currently get this laptop without bag and mouse for £839.99 at very with the £30 back code used on 12 months BNPL for anyone not interested in the bag / mouse and wanting to spread the cost.
And avoid the FX504 because they have hard thermal and power limit throttles built-in. I had one with the 8300H and 1050, so no idea how the hex-core CPU and faster GPU will fare. Google: ‘fx504 power limit throttling’
Tiny bag or massive mouse?
I know it is. That's why I said "an alternative".
Reviews seem to say that thermal throttling is reduced, but not eliminated.
Does the newer fx505 suffer less with thermal throttling, the fx504 is plagued with it I understand?
You can get an Asus with similar specs to this for £850: https://www.box.co.uk/FX504GM-EN150T-ASUS-FX504GM-EN150T_2344467.html?wgu=13045_116019_15581736819739_09e787ec8c&wgexpiry=1565949681&source=webgains&siteid=116019 Or £870 for the newer model: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07MWD86YZ
Thats the 1050i Model not the 1060
