Need a laptop which is *relatively* future proof


Jan 4, 2018
So, I've gotten a job which requires moving from place to place every few months and i need a good gaming laptop which will last me for as long as absolutely possible. I don't have too much to spend, maybe £1250 MAX although i originally set a maximum of £1000. The only requirement is that it has reasonably large storage space "at least 1TB hdd) and will last as long as possible before i have to upgrade.

What sort of Gpu would be best? Pretty much all of them come with I7 which will be fine but will a GTX 1050 4gb be enough for 5 years at least?

Forgot to mention, I am in the UK. Suggestions can come from any site as long as it can be delivered relatively quickly (no month long waiting periods). I need it for the start of February although its not a solid deadline.

Laptops I've found:
Dell Inspiron 7000 15.6" Gaming Laptop (Intel Core i7-7700HQ, 16GB RAM, 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD, GTX 1050Ti 4GB Graphics)

MSI GP62 15.6" FHD Gaming Laptop (Core i7-7700HQ, 8GB RAM, 128GB SSD, 1TB HDD, GTX 1060 Graphics, Windows 10 Home) 7RFX Leopard Pro 880UK - Black

ASUS GL502VM-FY497T ROG Strix 15.6-inch Full HD Gaming Laptop (Titanium) - (Intel Core i5-7300HQ, 8 GB RAM, 128GB SSD + 1TB HDD, Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB Graphics, G-Sync, Windows 10)


Yeah, as King Dranzer linked, you really need to get a budget up in the range where you can get a 1070 if you need that much longevity. "Laptop" "gaming for five-years" and "mid-range budget" do not go together well and you'll pretty much have to choose two.
