Game

The PC Specialist Optimus VIII RS17-XT 17.3" Gaming Laptop is part of our Gaming range, which features the most powerful PCs available today. It has superior graphics and processing performance to suit the most demanding gamer.

Powerful Intel® Core™ i5 processing

The Optimus Laptop is powered by an advanced 7th generation Intel® Core™ i5 processor, so that you can get through everyday tasks without being held up by a thing. If you're looking for a responsive laptop with powerful capabilities, you can rely on the Optimus VIII Gaming Laptop.

Alongside the 1 TB hard drive is a 128 GB solid-state drive (SSD). With much faster data-transfer speeds than normal hard drives anything you save on the SSD will load faster - great for reducing the time you spend looking at load screens.

GTX 1050 Ti Graphics

You can enjoy advanced visuals with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics card. Driven by the new NVIDIA Pascal architecture, it can open up a whole new level of detail in your favourite games.

Gameplay is smooth and enjoyable with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology. This synchronises the display refresh rates to the GPU, eliminating screen tearing and minimising stutter and input lag to keep you in control.

Sound Blaster Cinema audio

Enjoy powerful audio to enhance your gaming experience with Sound Blaster Cinema 3 software, which creates extremely realistic audio for everything you do. Offering realistic surround sound whether you're listening with headphones or using stereo speakers, the Optimus VIII is ideal for taking your gaming to the next level.

Microsoft Office & Internet security

This PC doesn't come with a full version of Microsoft Office or Internet Security. But don't worry, you'll find great savings on software with the bundles available on the ‘Top Deals' tab on this page.

Really beautiful design and size, with great high power performance
The fan goes a bit insane even at low end specs, although I could need a platform for so may just be me.
