Game on the go
The PC Specialist Optimus VIII ST15 is great for gaming on the go and don’t want to cut any corners on performance. The Intel Core i5-7300HQ Kaby Lake processor gives you the extra push in performance compared to normal laptop CPUs, as they harness more power and process high density physics without sacrificing the framerate or experience.

You also have a 2GB desktop grade graphics card to hand in the Nvidia GTX 1050 which means you can run graphics intensive games in full HD without compromise. Thanks to the display connectors on this laptop, you can also connect it to a monitor when you are at home and game on the big screen.

Portable dedicated graphics
The Optimus VIII ST15 comes with a 2GB Nvidia GTX 1050 dedicated graphics card. This is a desktop grade graphics card inside a laptop. The main benefit of this is that it allows you to play high definition games on the go and at full HD resolutions, all without compromises. The GTX 1050 can run a lot of AAA games at HD resolutions at 60 frames per second.

Next generation DDR4 memory
The Optimus VIII ST15 comes with 8GB of HyperX DDR4. This new type of memory is great for laptops, as it has better performance compared to DDR3 though uses less power. Memory-intensive tasks like gaming, video editing and photo editing will use less power and conserve your battery life better than before. It also means that your laptop will not get as hot under load as it would with DDR3.

Excellent display
The display at the heart of the Optimus VIII ST15 is a 15.6 inch full HD 1080p IPS LED panel. Watch videos, movies and play your games in full HD with this high-resolution screen. The IPS technology that makes up the screen allows you to see richer colours and have better viewing from different angles.

Upgradeability
The good thing about the Maplin exclusive PC Specialist laptops is that they do not use any proprietary hardware or software. The computer you buy is quite upgradeable in terms of hard drive and memory. You also get three-year standard manufacturer’s warranty, so if something turns out to be defective or faulty you can get it sorted easily.
