GL703GM comes with 8th gen processor... but youre right, less RAM and smaller SSD...


That’s got less RAM and a smaller M2 SSD. Also the details and description in the actual text of the advert says it’s a 7th Gen


Extra £70 and you can have 8th gen...


This was £979 from John Lewis last Friday if you where lucky enough to get one.


I'd have liked to see the current 8th gen processor included at this price. They are reputed to be a significant improvement over the 7th gen (to compete with AMDs current Zen range)

No mates rates involved. Just research what you're buying. I've bought 3 Stone Small factor PC's 1 i3 and 2 i5's. They are Intel motherboards and so still supported (they have a bios updates to fix the recent CPU security issue). They're ex schools, pretty small and quiet. OK they are several years old but take the hdd out and put a £23 SSD in bang per buck they are amazing. Providing they still have the windows 7 sticker on you can install windows 10 using the old product key. Stone i3 or i5 2500 Mhz PC on ebay ranging from £45 - £52 00 SSD £23 Additional 2gb DDR3 memory £5 (they come with either 2gb or 4gb) Total £73 If you want more memory you can go to 16gb but that's not necessary unless you're a gamer - in which case this is not for you (cheeky) Personally 8gb is fine.


Fair play getting all that kit for less than £100. Case, CPU (is your CPU your graphics?), SSD, 16GB of presumably DDR3 RAM, PSU, Heatsink, any required cables. All for less than £100? Don't act like everybody/anybody is going to be able to get all of this for under £100. Did you get it at mates-rates? Also, anyone reading this, buy yourself an SSD to turn your not nippy machine into a nippy machine.


If you're a gamer then go for it. Most peoples actual needs are way less but they feel compelled to buy new and spend a lot. My needs are not basic, but are not top end. I'm happy with mynew to me nippy i5 that has 16 gig of memory, HD video, an SSD and change from £100. I guess you wouldn't be but that's OK. (highfive)


I'm not even bothering arguing, but you're wrong on every count. Flat out wrong.


This is a such a load of ****. You mean for your needs (basic browsing, simple applications) you see no improvement, completely ignoring all the other uses where better components massively improve the experience.

ASUS ROG Strix-Scar edition GL703 Laptop, Intel Core i7, 16GB, 1TB + 256 SSD, GeForce GTX 1060, 17.3", Black at John Lewis for £979

144HZ Display Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB GDDR5 16GB RAM 256 GB SSD 1TB HDD I7 7700HQ 17.3" 1920 * 1080P Display Insane specification for the price imo

After watching some YouTube reviews it says that TN screens have better grey to grey refresh rates than the IPS anyway. Still the closessed price for the same laptopwas over £300 anywhere else so I suppose I’m not bothered either way.


Type 'settings' in the search bar (bottom left of desktop) > click on 'Display' > click on 'Advanced Display Settings' (bottom of screen) It'll tell you there. Genuinely curious to see what screen it has. If it's 144hz it's even more of a bargain than it already is!


4 websites, 2 144hz and 2 120hz. I’ll report back after 2pm when I collect it. Not sure how I will know though as I’m a bit of a PC virgin, I’ve not had a PC for over 10 years as I’ve used Mac’s


Again though, it states 144hz in ASUS's marketing blurb which Overclockers have just copied into the description (no doubt where JL have gotten the 144hz from) If you look at the product spec info at the top of the Overclockers page you'll see it states 120hz. This particular laptop has a 120hz screen. If it was the 144hz screen option, the part number would be different (as far as I know) Tbh, it doesn't make a great deal of difference, 120 or 144hz, its still a great laptop at a great price and well worth a pop. *I've edited my previous comments swapping SKU with part number as that's more accurate. Sorry for the confusion mate.


I’ve looked and the 120hz panels are TN (with Matt finish) where as the IPS are 144hz and gloss finish. JL clearly states IPS Gloss finish. Suppose I’ll find this tomorrow when I collect from store That first link you’ve shown is the 144hz IPS panel version and the other 2 links 120hz panels.

I'd support the throttling of crypto mining with these...if that is possible lol. Stop this bs so we can get some affordable components


The current rumour mill which likely has some weight to it is that the next set of consoles will be going the AMD APU route again, so it's more likely it'd be a reactive move to seeing where things are shifting outside of Nvidia's development efforts (given, Nvidia do a lot of deep learning stuff so compute's big on their agenda too, just not so much for home hardware). The die size part is a good call though, seeing as the 11xx kit will likely be 12nm while a bunch of foundries have 7nm in production now. The real world boon such a difference makes remains to be seen, but I'm hopeful.


They will sell the 11 tech at high prices to begin with to PC enthusiasts this year and let the cost of the tech and die size drop towards 2020 for a cut price console chip.


Personally, I'd say the 11 series is going to be a bit of a gamble from the get-go, since the current suggestion is that the next console generation will start in 2020 going off of Microsoft's hardware planning sheets. It's a bit long in the tooth to run a 9-series or lower end 10-series until then, but depending on how the new consoles are oriented (possibly towards GPU compute for things like realtime raytracing etc) it might be prudent to see how the consoles change the market. Likely to know more around E3 next year.


Second hand TI and Titan Pascal's are going for 450 used with plenty of warranty so too dear.

Excellent response :)


1180s are rumoured to be out end of this month, so not long to wait. If it was me I’d see how I got on with what I have and what I want to do with it, and upgrade if/when necessary.


I am into racing games, but its not where I spend the bulk of my time. I think thats a good shout , perhaps I'll wait until the 1180's are released and upgrade to that if that makes the most sense?


Your GPU will be the bottleneck, if you feel the need to upgrade that will be where you’ll see the biggest benefit unless you’re heavily into sims (flight, racing etc).


No, you won't. If anything, you'll need to upgrade your PSU.

Do you need a small system? What’s the budget? Probably best to PM me.


Thanks for the build Ollie. I think I'm going to go with something like this. Could you recommend a build using a Ryzen 5?


You can also buy licence keys off ebay for about £3.


That's just your opinion Ollie. I see plenty of 15.6" laptops on the train every day. Just for my info, how much does a mITX weigh?


Any "laptop" over 13 inches is too big to be truely portable. It's not just about weight.

Awesome board, just ensure the BIOS is updated. This is x370 (Ryzen first gen) but will work with the Ryzen 2 (or is it 1.5!) chips.


Down voting as mis-tagged sounds sensible. Thanks for explaining the tagging mechanism. Knowing the poster is able to correct them, albeit not directly their author, is helpful :D


Indeed, HUKD autotags posts. This item is listed with a "gaming laptops" tag probably because of that. I always find the irons tagged as "steam" entertaining, but downvote such mis-taged posts, because ultimately the poster should check that the tags are correct.


"We found a deal matching your 'gaming laptop' keyword alert!": So you have a laptop case I could put this into then? I've had this keyword alert set for months. It seems to be just the last few days I've started getting large numbers of incorrect matches. Some person or algorithm is unhelpfully labelling AMD desktop components as matches for "gaming laptop". Please stop it.

Great board for people on a budget intel build.

Difference is minimal, possibly a difference in memory performance of around 5-8% but in this article they simply say if you aren't overclocking then go for the b360.


On one of th tech sites they reviewed a B360 (MSI b360 mortar) and they found it strangely low performing .. about 10-12% or more , not sure if this true of all B360 boards (pmsi b360 mprtarlaceholder link) :/


It is but not all users are going to utilise all the bells and whistles. Pair this board with a 1070 and an I5 8400 and you will have a fantastic 1400p capable rig. Great for those who don't want to deal with overclocking etc. Personally I think that's all the fun but if people didn't buy these boards I suppose they wouldn't make em.


I wonder why people buy b360 stuff when z370p is going as low as 100 quid. I know its another 30 pound on top but isn't it worth all the bell and whistles?


Is this good for minig? Can support 6 gpu?

Thanks alot!


I have the asus fx503vm so not quite the same version but same specs and looks like a similar chassis too. I believe what you get with the strix version is an unlock bios. I cant remember my stock temps with stock thermal paste but they werent great in the high 80s if i remember correctly but i changed the thermal compound to thermal grizzly kryonaut and undervolted the cpu by 0.120v and my max temps are 76c cpu and 74c gpu so quite a stable and good temperature and thats in this heatwave in a very hot room so when the temperature outside starts dropping my max temps may well go lower. With the strix version i believe you can control your fans so dont have to wait till the hardware gets hot for them to start cooling it off.


Does this get relatively hot /overheat or somewhat stays cool?


It's their second attempt at making a laptop but they have made computer components for years. It's got good reviews and hits a good price point.

Don't feel too bad, this is last generation, and unless you are into extreme multi core loads, rather than gaming and normal applications, Amazon has done you a service and allowed you to buy a motherboard/cpu that will serve your purpose better, for cheaper.

ah, good to see the scum stopped in their tracks ;)


So I ordered for me for a future rig and one for my brother. Just received an email from amzn fr to say (via Google translate) 'it was brought to our attention that the number of units selected by you for your xxx order manifestly exceeds the normal needs of a household.

Excellent points. I own an expensive ultrawide freesync which I don't fancy forking out for the GSYNC equivalent even for a cheaper 1080.

Vega 56 when it was £380 ish was the smart buy. Shame the price went up to such a ridiculous price. Wouldnt buy this at this price when nvidia 2x series due to drop.


1. You're a miner 2. You bought Freesync That's it. Although spending £100 more on a card which is worse than a GTX1080 kind of negates the premium for a Gsync monitor anyway. That and the near future of AMD actually building anything decent high end isn't exactly looking great either.


Some people like myself are with Freesync monitors, so makes sense to go Red.

I think it's quite difficult to come up with an average number for this sort of stuff, and even if you can, it's kind of meaningless. The achievable overclocks on a CPU follow almost a negative expo curve. Without getting to mathsy, you get a lot of people able to OC to 3.3GHz, and very few able to get to 4.1, or even 4.0GHz (I think it's something like 20% can hit 4.0GHz with a 1700). In addition to that, you have to consider the ambient temperature inside the case because of the passive cooling on the VRMs. So all in all, its near impossible to say how hot the VRMs will get.


That was a typo. Does it matter? You can’t space out 4 slots to make them usable with dual slot cards - anyway the 1x slots will accommodate 16x cards as they’re all open backed. I guess it does matter to you or you wouldn’t have gone to that effort. But hey, I can’t judge you for how you spend you time.


Well on average I would say 3.9GHz on 1700

Supports AMD RYZEN and 7th Gen A-series Socket AM4 Mystic Light Sync Max. Memory Capacity 64GB (4x16GB)

I got mine today, on the box it actually says 'AMD Ryzen 2000 ready' so I'm guessing it is from a later batch and will already have a compatible BIOS flashed on it? P.S. I know Ebuyer and Yodel get some hate on here, but placed the order at 11pm Wednesday with the free delivery option, delivered this morning (Saturday) at 12pm...can't grumble at that!


Got boot kit off AMD and flashed to latest BIOS and all up and running. If you thinking of ordering Ebuyer will flash to latest version at no extra cost if you send them a request.


Mine arrived yesterday & put it together last night but it will not post. CPU LED is on so I assume it's the BIOS needs updating. Have sent AMD a request for boot kit will see what happens.


It will probably depend on the bios version that the board is shipped with


Would this be a good choice to start for a new build? would a 1200 or 2200 be better considering price and on a budget? (last build I done was a socket 775 all those years ago

About £90 cheaper than anywhere in UK.

I have this and would switch to Nvidia, but they don't display full dynamic range or 10bit properly even after changing the driver settings. The colours are grainy and washed out. Apparently I would need a quadro or black magic card.


Debatable. I'd take EVGA over Asus, I always have. FTW, Classified and Kingpin cards are boss.


Chances are most people buying an Nvidia card have bought them previously, so I'd assume most team green hardcore gamers already have the Gsync monitors


Where can you get a Strix 1080 for less than this? There are cheaper Vega cards but Asus Strix are the best.


Cold from me. So long as this thing costs more than a gtx 1080 it's bad value.
