Is this a good laptop for the price?





I5-8250U 2,5 GHZ quad core

Nvidia GeForce MX150




Priced at £610 ($780) currently. Could I get better elsewhere for the price?

Its not a horrible price


But before you spend any money I'd recommend watching Dave2D's video on Xiaomi laptops and buying xiaomi products outside of Asia and how their customer service is

Maybe look for a Dell G5 or inspiron.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B


Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Really depends, for a gaming laptop, wouldn't recommend it but if it is a slim perhaps quite portable one than yes. For gaming I would recommend the Asus ZX553VD or something similar, 700£ but it has i7 7700HQ, 8gb ram and a gtx 1050 2gb

If you don't mind the aftersales service and unknown longevity, then yes
