Care Plan for Laptops

A Care Plan protects your laptop if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap. You also benefit from a computer healthcheck every year.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

Enjoy the best of today's most demanding games wherever you are with the high-end PC Specialist Vortex IV RS-880 17.3" Gaming Laptop.

Desktop performance in a portable package


The Vortex IV is powered by a quad-core Intel® Core™ i7-4710MQ processor. With eight threads, a 3.4 GHz TurboBoost clock speed and a 6 MB Smart Cache, it delivers rapid processing that won't bottleneck or hold you back, no matter how intense the on-screen action.  

A vast 16 GB of Kingston RAM provides smooth gaming, loading and multitasking so you can play without restriction. And although essentially overkill for gaming this amount of RAM allows you to edit and create using industry-standard photo, video, music and design software. It can even accept up to 32 GB should you find yourself needing more in the future.

Gaming graphics


You can enjoy games at their best on the move thanks to the impressive NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M graphics card. Featuring 1536 CUDA cores and a surprising 8 GB of memory, it delivers impressive high definition gaming packed full of detail without compromising on FPS.

A large 17.36” 1080p LED screen works with the GTX 880M to ensure games, everyday computing and Blu-ray movies look their absolute best wherever you choose to log on. It also features a matte screen finish for reduced screen glare in direct light.

Serious storage


A 480 GB solid state drive (SSD) is the perfect storage solution for high-end mobile computing. With ample space for Windows along with your favourite games and software, it provides vastly improved read and write speeds for rapid booting, smooth gaming and instantaneous file recovery.

Supporting the SSD is a 1 TB hard disk drive that offers plenty of room for documents, media, games and more. Unlike most laptop hard drives it runs at a desktop HDD speed of 7200 rpm for faster file access. 

Gaming with Windows


Windows 8.1 is the perfect OS for serious gaming as it takes the established Windows formula and adds a number of performance and visual improvements to help you make the most of your games.

While the familiar Start button and traditional desktop remain, the Start Screen now features live tiles. These handy squares show live updates, messages and notifications for all your most used content including social media, emails, news and more.

There are plenty of functional updates throughout Windows 8.1 including adjustable four-way multitasking and a completely reworked search bar; simply start typing to search your computer, connected storage media, the Cloud and web.

Convenient connections


Four USB ports, three of which are USB 3.0, make it simple to add your choice of peripherals while integrated WiFi and a Gigabit Ethernet port offer easy access to internet.

You can even add additional monitors or game on a bigger screen thanks to HDMI and DisplayPort connectivity.

Don't compromise on gaming on the move with the impressively powerful PC Specialist Vortex IV RS-880 17.3" Gaming Laptop.
