[Dell] WARM? Dell XPS 15 9570, i7-8750H, 1050ti, 8GB, 256GB SSD, 1080p Display, $1599+tax - 2% Ebates CB and Dell Advantage

Applying the $150OFF$1700PC coupon works and my cart showed $250 off ($100 sale price minus $150).

I actually upgraded the RAM and SSD, because unless you have a use for the old bits (doubt you could sell them for much) the upgrades are about $50 less than upgrades at memoryexpress.

Seems like a good deal. I had the i5 9560 and it was a really good.

I think it's a pretty warm price. NewEgg has something similar ($200 cheaper, but 1050, twice as much ram, and half the SSD size):

The real sell is the chip. I do a lot of data crunching/modeling for work, and have largely been confined to desktops because of how under powered laptops have been. Now there is a high end 6 core chip with hyper threading, that is roughly the equivalent of a Desktop Ryzon 1600x. The only other competitor in this space is the Asus Laptop that has the desktop 1700 inside, but I don't think it's available in Canada.

XPS15 is leagues better than that MSI laptop. Much better build quality, lighter, larger battery, etc.

I bought an asus gaming laptop with a 1070 and twice as much ram for $200 more about a year ago. The build quality on the xps is certainly better, but it depends what you're looking to use it for. I wouldn't trade the 1070 for the build quality and a 1050ti.

Nah, the xps is lighter and thinner.
I used to think size/weight were a non issue until I had to lug around a big heavy laptop for school for 5 days a week....
