    That is a fair comment, but G-Sync and Freesync also helps at lower FPS (often down to 30-40fps). Indeed the most important aspect of a gaming screen's performance ought to be the sync range, not the peak, yet that is often missing from the specs.

    Agreed for newer games, But gamers wanting a cheap laptop that can do 120? theres nothing. don't like the Gsync stuff.

    Using the word gaming in articles describing laptops equipped with GTX1050 is rather misleading.

    Only if your idea of the entirety of gaming is post 2012 AAA titles requiring 60 FPS. A 1050 still makes this vastly more competent than anything running an Intel HD chip.
    But you do have a point. Thing is though, the article is calling it a gaming laptop because that's who it is aimed at by the manufacturers and resellers. Just because our opinion is different as enthusiasts doesn't mean that we can change what it is.... sadly.

    Re: Lenovo Legion Y520

    The currys variant makes some sense (£150 more than the acer aspire from last month for a better screen and better GPU), but why on earth would anyone shell out for the john lewis/very version?
