I think it's a pretty good deal. Worth checking out if you're in the market for a gaming laptop.

Edited post, as user mentioned, there's a newer model which is also on sale.

980m? That is about the same speed as a 1060. Just stick with newer model.

It is a good deal. I think I spot it this morning. However, when I saw GTX 980M, it put me off. That thing is slower than a GTX 1060. It is more like RX 470.

Yeah. In my opinion you are much better getting less memory with better graphic and cheaper price like this:

It really isn't very fesible for a gaming laptop with this CPU and GPU to effectively use 32 GB ram, even if you really want 32 GB, you can generally add it later and come out ahead.

This is a terrible deal. Best buy has been selling better specced more current versions of this laptop with current cpu, 256gb ssd, and a 1070 for $2k. I bought one 3 months ago, and the deal has come up again since.

Don't spend $1800 on a 980m. It's as fast as a gtx 970. the 1070 is like 70-80% faster.
