    Default £1000 budget for gaming laptop or tower

    My nephew has a budget of £1000 to spend on a gaming laptop or tower, he also needs to be able to pay monthly not an all in one payment.

    Any ideas on what to buy and where to buy it would be great?

    He doesn't build his own so a full set up would be needed.

    Thanks

    overclockers.co.uk are brilliant. I'd hold off for a few weeks though, AMD's latest CPU, Ryzen, is due for release, and leaked benches look very impressive.

    Sign up to very.co.uk

    You can buy now pay later on all purchases over 200 up to 12 months no interest...

    You pay a little extra over RRP for the privilege but there are plenty of gaming laptops on there

    I think Scan have payment plans and they are my supplier of choice.

    I always use [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Always been very good, cheap and the offer finance through Paypal finance.

    Edit:

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    More powerful GPU but only 15.6 inch screen.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Less powerful but bigger screen if he prefers.

    Teach your nephew a valuable life lesson. Get him to save up the £1000 and then buy the PC. He will value it a lot more and the kit he buys will be a lot better than what hew can buy now.

    Thanks to MHP
