Does anyone know if there's a noticeable difference in playing games between the i5 6300hq in this laptop and the i7 6700hq in other 960m laptops?

More ore less same unless the game is extreme CPU dependent. Dell also has an XPS model with exact same configuration. Check the review here:-

It will give you a good comparison between 6300HQ and 6700HQ.

Not in gaming. Both are quad core CPUs which is the important part (U processors are slower). The difference is the i7 has hyper-threading, which games don't use. The i5 is perfect for gaming and every day normal use.

The hyper-threading comes into play when you do video editing, 3D rendering, or heavy multi-tasking.

The i7-6700HQ model is often on sale refurbished with same as new warranty for < $700. I personally got mine with the i7-6700HQ processor for $640 shipped after tax with 1 year warranty, which was a great deal (was a 30% outlet coupon or something at the time).

I've been using this laptop on the road for about five months now. I fly every week for work so it gets tossed around in my bag a lot and has held up to travel with no issues so far.

The #1 and #2 upgrades you should do to it in my opinion are:
1) Swap out the 1TB HDD for a 256GB+ SSD -or- add a SATA-based m.2 SSD and use the 1TB for extra storage. #1 best upgrade for performance.
2) Add another 8GB stick of RAM (costs like $25). Small performance boost from running in dual channel mode with the 2nd stick.

The upgrades are super easy given that you unscrew ONE captive screw and then pop out the cover and it gives you access to everything. Easiest laptop I've ever worked on and you even have access to the fans and heatsink if you're an intrepid modder who wants to repaste their CPU/GPU.

I'm a bit of a power user and find the theoretically 30% faster i7-6700HQ to be worth it over the slower 6300HQ. It made like a $65 difference at the time I purchased the laptop, which was a no-brainer to spring for.

Downsides:
The 1080p "IPS" screen is hit or miss. Dell ships multiple brands under the same P/N so you have a bit of a panel lottery. I got the "bad" panel but it's sufficient for my uses - just not very bright or accurate color reproduction. Supposedly, the 4K panel is better in that respect, but for $640 I am definitely satisfied. If all you're used to is low end budget laptops, you won't be disappointed. If you buy $1000+ laptops with nice screens... oh well.

If you're looking for a gaming laptop, and you can wait, I'd suggest holding out for newer laptops using the newer nVidia 1070 and 1060 based mobile chips that will be coming out in a few months. They're a big jump in performance per watt versus even this 960m. That's not to say the 960m is bad, just don't expect to run more than medium to medium-high settings depending on the game.

If all you do is play MOBAs or games like Overwatch, I can confirm it runs those types of games very nicely however Smilie

I bought the same machine, except 4gb and the faster 6700hq cpu, for the same price 4.5 months ago. Brand new, not refurbished. I think I got the slightly better deal as I only had to pay < $20 to upgrade ram to 8gb, and of course you can't upgrade cpu. Plus I got almost $100 back from eb@+es cashback sale, and of course this was almost half a year ago. So ... OK deal, but I would think you could do better on mostly same/worse components after time has passed. My 2/4 purchase below.

p.s. agree with previous poster about the disk upgrade. I got a deal on 512gb m.2 drive so I went with that instead of 256gb. Helps save on battery, as well as add speed. I also agreed with small erformance boost from 2nd stick memory for dual channel, but I got it by adding 4gb stick (since started out with 4gb), and I think 8gb total is adequate for most people.

Got it for my son, who is mostly gaming on it right now (hasn't started college yet -- hope he isn't mostly gaming too then LOL!). We tried a HP laptop with 640m gpu, and he says this one has less heat issues even with better gpu and cpu.
