Should I get this for school? I have an 800 dollar budget, and want to do a little gaming.
Specs- Intel i5-6300HQ 2.3 GHz Quad-Core (6M Cache, Turbo up to 3.2 GHz)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4GB GDDR5
8 GB DDR3L / 256 GB Solid-State Drive
15.6-Inch FHD IPS, Wide-Angle, Anti Glare Screen.
meh it's okay, in the "i know it's gonna last me a few years if i'm lucky" sort of way.
Looks like a decent deal, reviews make me sketchy though.
Adrian, and I have scholarship/financial aid. This is the money I have left over, so I'm using it to buy a decent laptop and doesn't have five minutes of battery life.

Fuck off faggot, you suck a shit-posting.
I'll look, thanks.
Britbong that was looking for the same price range, the only real options for me are the 7559, Acer aspire nitro V, some of the clevo/sager models and a couple of UK-based customs who seemed to use clevos as a base
Not really sure how dell have managed to stuff the shit they have in mine at this price point, expecting some really janky Chinese build quality but I don't give a fuck as long as it functions and I can fix it
Even cooling solution seems decent with it
I recently bought this one, more spec'd out than the one you are looking at and I'm liking it. Had it for a few days, about to put fallout4 on it to check it out. It's also 4k screen so the scaling can be bothersome if you are using it for school. And this model is more expensive than yours. I can put it at 1080 and it helps.
about the battery though
this anon is right. on battery I would switch to the intigrated intel video. Wouldn't recommend gaming on battery. I jerked off to some 4k porn in the bathroom for about 10minute or so and it took it down by over 20%, using the 960m obviously.

Literally the one I got except I went with the none-4k because I think it's a meme, also because laptops tend to struggle with 4k at decent quality imo
My only niggle is that i got a SSHD instead of a full-on SSD - the 8gb ram is in a single channel which is peak but as there's space for another one it'll work out better once I nab one
I got some 5% off coupon from somewhere off the internet so it was closer to 700 for me, that price is including VAT and delivery (didn't specify UK delivery, possibly applies to EU and US as well, p sure it's not coming from UK so I can't see why not...)
either way, I couldn't find anything else within £150 with the same specs that wasn't from some questionable 3rd party seller
Yeah when I was researching it, I saw the 8gb ones and that they had it only on one channel, instead of making you jew out more money for two 8gb.
Yeah, the 4k is probably a meme, but I got it for shit's and giggles. I watch a lot of movies, especially when traveling. And with 4k starting to be released soon as the norm for movies, it is perfect for my needs. It doesn't seem to struggle on vlc with a couple of tweeks.
Ah, if you watch a lot of movies then it makes a lot more sense - I don't watch any, so I'm probably jaded.
I figure the speed difference between 8gb single and 8gb dual probably won't be that big of a deal - if it turns into one I'll probably end up throwing money at a matching stick for 16gb ram, anyway.
P glad there's easy access to a free m.2 slot, always a massive pain when there's no free space or it require unscrewing 50 different things
free m.2 slot? is there another one? That'd be pretty fucking sweet. Mine came with a 128gb, And with the prices of them, I will soon be upgrading to a larger faster and so on. Plus I have some ssd's sitting around, so I'm going to get rid of the 1tb wd blue that it came with and use it as an external.
i mean new mobile gpu architecture isn't going to matter much, i play games on it, gets about 58 fps solid on fallout 4 on medium. battery life doesn't happen if you game but just web surfing and some settings adjustments it lasts a while on battery
This money is really leftover from a small loan, and not my scholarship or grants.
I need a new laptop, and I've already purchased my books. It is a very common practice to use leftover financial aid money to purchase a computer.
