Fierce PC Dream Machines P960RN Gaming Laptop Review
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Picking the right gaming laptop is even harder than picking the right desktop PC. You can get compact and slim laptops, fast laptops, light laptops. However, the slimmer, faster, or lighter they are, the most expensive they tend to be. Even more so if you’re wanting all three aspects together. However, Fierce PC think they’ve found a nice balance with their new Dream Machines series. We have the P960RN Gaming Laptop 2 in for testing today. They have a version called “Laptop 1” also, which basically has a different storage configuration, but their price is broadly similar.
Fierce PC Dream Machines P960RN
The model we have is certainly well equipped. With a screen size of 16.1″ it’s a great size for portability, while still being competent for work and gaming. Furthermore, with a 144Hz IPS Full HD panel, the picture should be silky smooth with fantastic colours too. The powerhouse isn’t exactly lacking either, with a mighty Intel Core i7 9750H processor, and the super-fast Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q graphics card. However, despite all that power, the system is just 19.9mm thick and weighs just 2.09kg. For a sub £2000 laptop, it’s ticking all the right boxes.

Why have one box when you can have three. I don’t normally take a picture of the box, as they’re a bit dull. However, we had one large box full of bubble wrap, with a hard-wearing cardboard box inside that, and finally the laptop box inside that. Three layers, plenty of protection. It’s no wonder it got to us without a scratch. Thank you Fierce PC!
