PC Specialist Defiance IV (w/ Core i7 & GTX 1070)

Rating: 8.0.

The PC Specialist Defiance IV is a large, subtle gaming laptop that eschews extravagant features for solid specifications and a low price – but can this £1,399 machine outpace rivals that offer more glamour?

It certainly gets off to a good start – at least when it comes to the components. The GTX 1070 is one of the world’s most popular graphics chips, and it’s paired with a familiar Core i7 processor. There’s the usual 16GB of memory alongside an SSD and a hard disk.

It’s got a 17.3in screen, too, so it’s got the size advantage over many smaller notebooks – and the screen can rattle through the frames at 120Hz, which means gaming will appear smoother than on panels that rely on lesser refresh rates.
