    Not 'alf. I'd have given that a good wipe down with iso before the shoot!

    Maybe it's just me... but spending the best part of £3,000 on a gaming computer that's described as only "pretty powerful" is ludicrous. Yes, I'm sure I'm missing the point of it...but you can get "37fps and 47fps in Battlefield 1 and Fallout 4" at 1080p on a cheap-as-you-like desktop (or console) for what,10% of the cost of this?

    :/

    Just got mine and love it!
    Fingerprint magnet - yes, but still looks stunning.
    Build quality is apple like but with a proper laptop keyboard. Dont love the separate touchpad buttons - would prefer it was all one part.
    Upgrading the SSD is ridiculously expensive. Its cheaper to throw away (ebay) the cheapest 250GB and buy an aftermarket 1TB - you will save at least £ 100 if not more. You would also end up with a faster drive.
    Battery life for office work could be better but if I wanted an office computer I wouldnt order this.

    One more thing.. my 250GB version came with Samsung PM951 - slower and older drive.

    If I had to live with one single computer this would be it.

    Luckily I don't. So for less money I can get a very portable ultrabook and a itx gaming desktop. Best of both worlds.

    IIRC Dell owns Razer so the HDD price hike isn't surprising.

    Are you perhaps thinking of Alienware, there? Dell doesn't own Razer.

    Don't like Razer because of their driver practices, and then to read they partnered with Lenovo is of course a final big NO for that company.
