With 10% ebates, 2299$ seems like a rather normal price for 1070 laptops at this point of time.

Best price was 12/2016 at a little over 1500$ with 10% coupon before ebates.

Not terrible but yes, there was a better deal last year. However, these new ones are actually fixed with no overheating issues, and the 1070 is factory OC to provide near 1080 quality gaming (and much better than the 1080 Max-Q)

Um, I've got a 15R3 with 1070GTX and where did you see that it is "factory overclocked" to rival a 1080?

BTW, I am very happy with mine, it is one of the earlier batch. Same specs as this but with an i7 6700HK.

As of those created after June 15, 2017 Alienware 15 R3's now all come with a factory overclocked 1070. This was confirmed by the AW rep on reddit AW_Khan and I can confirm from looking at mine (7700HQ, 1070, 60Hz G-sync IPS panel) that the base clock is now 1440 MHz and turbo is 2002 MHz; Firestrike scores with the new 1070 are better than the new 15 R3 with 1080 Max-Q (currently only available in the US). This is significantly higher than the previous; you can check yours on HWinfo as well.

1080 Max-Q is not the same as 1080.

Interesting, thanks for this and now I'm getting a little off-topic but since I have the 1070 with the better RAM (non-Micon, Samsung IIRC) do you think I can OC it to that speed? I've got some Gelid paste lying around I could try to repaste CPU & VidCard...
