You could pay a little extra and get one with an ssd and a gtx 1050, why settle for an mx150 at this price. I dont get it?
Nice the MX150 is a lot more powerful than I originally thought it was. So close to buying one of these just need the price a little lower....

Don't buy this laptop! Terrible and cheap plastic. You need to clean it every time you use it, as fingerprints are very visible on it (my hands are clean, while I am using it). Believe me - you probably will be better off paying £50 extra for a laptop with similar specs made by Asus or other company using better materials. Also GTX960m is comparable to GTX950.
Edited by: "Damians" 18th Oct 2017
That's a cracking price, the 960m indeed qualifies as a gaming GFX chipset in my opinion.

I've replaced the HD with a solid state one and it's now got 16gb RAM. It goes pretty well for an old machine. However these are XPS laptops - There are often current versions of the XPS range that make their way onto the Dell outlet site (where I got mine) with hefty processors and dedicated graphics


Yeah stuck an SSD in ours too it runs beautifully, never really needed to upgrade, Intel nerf the processors IMO they need competition

Basically a massive waste of an i7.Clearly designed to con those who don't know any better, that card is better paired with an i3.Given that for only £100 more you can get a laptop that's about 96% faster for gaming. I don't really see it as a good deal, 96% more gaming performance for only 11% more cash? Yes please.Granted you don't get a crap bag or a cheap headset and mouse, but given the performance delta between the two I could forgive that easily.



I agree. Given the performance of the quad core i5 you get these days (in single and multithread), i7 does seem to be largely a marketing gimmick here. There was definitely scope to fit an i5 and a small (128GB) SSD instead of this i7 and a uselessly slow mechanical drive. Even if the hypothetical i5 is a bottleneck it'll be much less of one than a slow disk or the GPU

I have used this laptop for 6 months. Yes, HDD is very slow and needs a SSD to speed up load times on boot up and games. Runs games at 1080p if you make a little sacrifice in settings. Screen is very vibrant and colours pop out at you. However, blacks look grey and washed out no matter how you tweak settings. Fan noise is inconsistent, keeps speeding up and slowing down cyclically at idle loads. Overall, it's pretty decent at this price.

Actually it came back in stock on Wednesday or at least thats when I checked again before taking the plunge on either one. It arrived on Friday and my wife seems pretty pleased with it. Personally it really needs SSD but will be getting one for it shortly. I have bought from JL a few times and been great even with returns but as with any company they will have good and bad. Anyways the Omen only won just with reviews on battery life that tipped me over.

Im holding off upgrading until this 'mining faze' has passed - GPU costs are crazy currently, that being said this is a nice spec for the money but I think if your looking to drop £600+ I would ideally want a 1050 or better as performance improvement and with it future proofing (ps pro and xbox one x will raise the min spec a fair bit going forward) is significant, not that you couldnt play games perfectly well on this system (ignore the elite Pc gamers who disregard anything that cant run every game on ultra settings at 4K and 60fps - you can game perfectly well at 1080p high or medium and even as low at 30fps game type dependent.- honestly 'hairworks and all that other crazy GPU heavy stuff very rarely adds much to the gaming experience.

Price is even lower now, at £1049
so is this not a very good deal then, after a replacement machine. Toying between a fully fledged powerhouse laptop or Hybrid. This seems good price compared to scan, JL etc when googling model, no SSD is a shame but I have one in my current machine anyhow we can swap.

Anyone suggest anything similar in performance for same price.

Also noticed a Quidco Offer for a Lenovo Yoga 900 i7 256gb SSD VERSION, comes out at £903 after cashback and also includes an additonal £50 MS Store Gift Voucher, only issue I have is its Intel 520 Graphics. I am mainly using Photoshop and Lightroom so prefer a dedicated gpu is possible. My current Lenovo Ultrabook is getting slower so need to replace it.

2gb graphics..,.., jog on mate. COLD
I got the GP72 6QF LEOPARD PRO 17" laptop (its the same spec's) and grabbed it back in August for £800. Its superb but a few drawbacks / potential issues for some:

DVD Drive: For me, complete pointless and if I didn't have my extended warranty for 2 years, I would swap this out for another bigger hard drive. I check with MSI and apparently this would void my warranty (who knows).

Upgrade the RAM: It came with 8GB and its borderline acceptable these days and with me doing development, I needed to upgrade. After checking with MSI support, it was OK to remove the sticker on the back where a screw is in place that said "void if removed". I upgraded it to 16GB of RAM and its just fast. A very good Idea from the start

Killer Nic Software: One of the main reason for choosing this over most if that finally I would have a Killer Nic card in the machine. Always wanted this for a few years. If you plan on Keeping Windows 10, when the anniversary edition came out, the Killer Nic software suit used almost 100% RAM. It had issues with the latest Windows 10 and currently im just using drivers only which sorted the issue. Gutted by hey, I can use the PC again.

Linux (Ubuntu in my case) is a nightmare to Install: Yep weeks I have been dring to get a dual boot going and after so many patches, fixes and all sorts. It worked. Kind of. Its all to do with Nividia card and how the drivers are. When in windows they have a thing called Shift Mode that keeps the temps down. Not in Linux and trying to use 3rd party apps dont quite work. Also, the Main bug with Linux is that when you shut down, the Laptop doesn't actually shut down, you have to hold the power button in to turn off. I found this out the hard way when I was commuting home, got home and found the Laptop on for about an hour in the bag Its fine but im not going to have Linux installed if it cant shut down.

Keyboard: its an oddly layed out keyboard and some buttons are bigger than they should be. On odd thing to complain about but when you are in the zone programming, the # key is the same size as the enter key

If you OK with these or know work around (please let me know) its a blazing fast bit of kit. Loads within 8 seconds (I do have hibernate on mind) and its great for gaming as well as for work. Playing Battlefield 1 currently and its pretty good considering its a laptop

Err, price?



Yeah, but you have to take a wider view IMO. £780 for this is not an insignificant amount. You buy one of these and it will last you what? 1 maybe, 2 years before you start coming across games where you have to turn down the settings? And let's not forget what's coming in 2017. Star Citizen is going to bring a 960m down onto its knees. If the 10XX range was only minor improvement like 9XX over 8XX, then sure, it's fine to go for the older chip, but the performance jump with the 10XX is huge. The benches for the 1070 for example are extraordinary. You might also even see laptops with Intel Optane in 2017 and tnat really will make a difference in games with in between level loading times.

No, the integrated 520 of the Intel will do just fine for loading up photos to look at as it's more than powerful enough. If you have no use for the dedicated graphics then all it becomes is something that makes the machine more expensive and uses more battery. The only time a dedicated card will benefit you is if you use programs that will need the graphics card or can make use of it to speed up what they do.

Not sure I'd really want to opt for this myself as the 940MX can only be considered playable at 1280x720 resolution at low detail settings for games like, Fallout 4, Batman: Arkham Knight, Just Cause 3, Far Cry Primal, The Division and Need for Speed 2016. So it's really entry level and frankly that it will struggle to play modern games from the last 12 months makes it seem a poor deal. http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-940MX.156033.0.htmlSame laptop is available cheaper herehttp://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/msi-gl72-6qc-024uk-core-i5-6300hq-12gb-1tb-hdd-nvidia-geforce-gt-940mx-2gb-9s7-179675-024/version.asphttp://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/acer-aspire-v5-591g-intel-core-i7-6300hq-8gb-1tb-8gb-ssd-hybrid-nvidia-gef-nx.g5wek.002/version.asp950m for less money than this deal seems a better proposition too.

8, 12 or 16gb of RAM that you can upgrade later.

Graphics card which you can't

I know where I'd spend my money.



See above regarding why this isn't a good deal. Adding things later to bring a machine up to speed is better than having those things and something you can never change without buying something else entirely. This really isn't a great deal for what you are getting and as has been mentioned, gaming is a push for it at HD ready resolutions. It will struggle/not play many 2016 titles at 720p which really defeats the point of it. When you can get 950m cards for the same money it's a no brainer to get a machine that will perform somewhat better, then add the RAM/SSD etc down the line when you've got a bit more cash.

It really comes down to your budget. If he wants to game easily at 1080p then your looking at around the £1000 price range for laptops which could include a 960/970m.

If your budget is lower then the laptops with the 950m/960m are the only real options.

I use a 850m on my laptop (similar to this) and its fine for most games just intensive games like GTA/ARK etc it will struggle to run.

You could build a half decent gaming rig for less than £500. If he is using at home permanently then you should probably make the decision for him.

I do take your point about the PC specialist price, it is a little cheaper, but you also have to decide whose build is more reliable, both makers have decent reputations. You do I believe have to pay extra for more than a years warranty at PC specialist, this deal comes with 2 years included. This spec is good for HD video editing also, hence you should expect to pay more for such capabilities.
I paid £700 or 800 for an msi laptop in late 2013 (great btw) and the specs are not far off this. Or not far enough. For 1329 I would expect quite a lot more. Admittedly not studied the market.
pcspecialist.co.uk/not…17/

£1230 for the same general spec and guaranteed to know what hard drives you are getting as well as being built to your order.

Looking at a few other custom builders most are cheaper than this option with like for like core specs. Not sure I'd justify spending £1300 on a gaming laptop now that I've seen the light with having a half decent desktop that will perform just as well for a lot less money and change to buy a nice portable laptop to stream steam games to.

Small cases making air intakes small meaning heat dissipation more difficult. Desktops for gaming computers for me. For a laptop, I would not want a 960M due to the noise of the fan and without the gaming it would not be needed


The same money will buy a better gaming desktop, which is upgradable too, but it won't be portable and can't be put away when not in use.

That said, my son was playing Crysis happily on all settings except AA which was one setting down, using an Asus G750JX, i7 4700HQ and GTX770M - which is about the same perf. as a GTX960M.

I couldn't hear the fans at all - it was quieter than my gaming desktop.

​You also get 8gb of RAM with the Dell as opposed to 16gb here. But an 8gig stick to add on top will only cost you £35ish quid. So you're looking at £735 max for a higher spec, smaller screen laptop.

I've been looking at laptops like this. I'm not a gamer but want something to do 3D and graphics work on. Is this type of thing a good choice for that or is this overkill and is there something better to go for?

Hi

Sorry the mistakes, I don't speak english. I paid £766 for a returned Dell laptop (returned, not refurbished). Alienware 17 R2 core i7 4720 gtx 970m 16gb ram, 1tb 7200 rpm, 1080p screen, alienware graphic amplifier port (you can fit a desktop graphic Card to use the laptop screen or others monitors). You can try on Dell outlet website but you need patience. If you want it asap, matar the msi is a good option.
