Should I buy this Alienware laptop?

I'm planning on purchasing a gaming laptop, though I'm curious as to whether or not I should purchase this for £400-£700:

Its an Alienware M17x R4 with Intel Core i7-4700MQ, 24GB storage, 17 inch screen, with Windows 8, however, as seen via images the Y key on keyboard came off, hence I'm curious whether to buy this laptop and take it to a shop to order the key

.............and take it to a shop to order the key

You can get your replacement key kit from here and fit it yourself. It should take just a few seconds of your time. I've used this company before and can recommend them.

...........whether or not I should purchase this for £400-£700:

I think that nearer £400 would be the appropriate price for a fairly elderly laptop - especially if you have to pay for a Windows 10 upgrade.

I'm afraid we don't offer advice on purchasing decisions. We can certainly comment on the pros and cons of a specific hardware configuration, but judgments about value for money with regard to used equipment are for you to make.

That might sound unhelpful, but there are very good reasons for our policy.
