    Bank holiday sale on.

    I still get a staff discount on my account, £765 for something I was considering buying for just over a grand last week seems rude to pass up.

    Damn, thought it was a 17 incher.

    Mechanical HD needs swapped out immediately for an SSD.

  10. Bugger, it’s out of stock!

    I literally just want an average enough laptop il have no problem running age of empires/FM/rollercoaster tycoon etc on.
     
  11. The Optane drive should speed things up a bit. It's no SSD but it is a nice boost for crappy spinning disks.

    Shame. T'was a good deal.

  13. SSD prices have come well down; it's probably about £50 more than the one I posted if you went out and bought an SSD to stick in it. The CPU is 'only' a 7th gen too (though i'm sure the HQ will more than hold it's own).

    Still a good price though.

    Yeh, I think its a great price - its basically the same spec as I paid £800 for in November. £200 cheaper, and the SSD is twice the size - and tbh, Dell is a better brand than MSI (which is the one I bought)
    Yeh, last gen CPU which is a shame - but its still a very decent one for a laptop, as its the HQ model.

  15. There's a reasonably spec'd HP laptop on the Very site atm.

    Pavilion 15-bc400na Intel Core i5, GeForce GTX 1050 Graphics, 8Gb RAM, 1Tb HDD, Full HD 15.6 inch Gaming Laptop

    To get the £545 price you have to buy on credit and use the code MYQC3.

    £545
    15.6" screen @ 1080p
    i5-8250
    gtx 1050
    8gb ram

    No SSD, but you can get a 240gb Kingston one for £40 on Amazon atm.

    It's still nowhere near as good as the one in the OP, but might suit someone (particularly if they're not fussed about having an ssd).

    I can't imagine paying over £500 for any PC and not having an SSD. That would be mad. Also, not everyone is comfortable opening a laptop up (especially if the M2 slot isn't easily accessible.

    That Dell deal looks really good to me.

  17. All very true, though if you are happy enough to install your own ssd and re-install windows it'd be decent.

    I reckon your probably right, for the extra £15 yours is hassle free.

    By the way, will FM run on a standard £300 i3 CPU (something like 4Gb ram and a standard HDD)
    If so, how well?
