Have I bought the right laptop ?!

    I was looking to purchase a laptop for work (writing) and playing the odd computer game (Tibia [anything will run Tibia] and World of Warcraft) on a moderately high setting. I already have a desktop PC (I7 5820K, 16GB DDR4, GTX 970) so was looking for something relatively cheap and cheerful.


    Purchased that laptop for £499.99 and understanding how Currys return policy is, nothing can be returned if it is opened.

    Looking for advice, if it is any good. Or I can purchase something else which is a better product than this for the same price? (Budget was £400, ended up at £500).

    Thanks in advance
