    Good afternoon,

    I've been recently convincing myself to buy a gaming laptop and I'm struggling with the different specs and reviews and hoped anyone could give advice from use of something in the region I'm looking at.

    Budget ~£1,000-1,200
    Usage - Gaming, some light weight MMO + fps (including through a 4K TV)
    Monitor - 17", IPS if possible or a decent TN panel, brightness not the biggest deal as to use inside primarily.
    Portability not an issue
    Gfx - GTX1060 ideally, allowing for a bit of VR and connecting to TV for gaming, 4k if it'd take it)
    Trackpad - Not too bothered as I'll use a mouse 99% of the time.
    Keyboard - prefer numpad and decently placed enter/shift/arrow keys
    Storage SSD (M.2 nvme ideally) along with larger HDD
    CPU - i5/i7, believe they aren't massively impactful for gaming and both capable.
    RAM 8GB+

    So far I've found the following options which I'm pondering (and wishing Black friday was nearby)

    £950

    £1221

    Any help appreciated, I'm not the best at spending money and it could well be months before I commit if let to myself...

    Regards

    Rob
