[Dell] Alienware m15 Ryzen Edition R5: $1980 + 10% CB plus $100 credit from Dell

Update:

If you chat with a rep to cancel after placing your order they may offer an additional $100 savings. Ymmv.

Because of the 10% Rakuten, I decided to go ahead and get my new desktop replacement laptop. I know it is a premium price, but I decided to replace my aging 27 inch imac and will use this with the Lenovo 27 inch 4k monitor. The Ryzen chip and video card were key to me to be able to future proof for about 5 years. Key features include:

-AMD Ryzen R7 5800H- 8 core, 20mb total cache, 4.4ghz max boost clock
-nvidia GEForce RTX 3070
-16 GB DDR4 RAM
-512 GB SSD
-15.6 screen 1920x1080


Original price: $2199
10% email discount:$1979
10% Rakuten: $1781


After Rakuten 10% back, its $1781.10 plus tax. Probably today only. Estimated arrival for me is June 16.

Bracing myself for downvotes because of the use of Alienware

Some details for those thinking about buying.

The 1080p screen is 300 nits + no GSYNC, the 1440p is 400 nits + GSYNC (unsure about windows hello). Oh and of course the 165hz vs 240hz.. 200$ upgrade might be worth it on a 2k machine.

The 3070 runs at 125W instead of the 140W in the intel version (R4) - both numbers are with the "boost" on.

Ram and Wifi card both upgradable.

Rakuten is still 10% today, so deal is still alive.

I signed up in the morning, but I didn't receive any email from delll yet.
Does it take that long normally
I spend time on RFD,
more than I'd like to admit.
But I console myself stating,
I'd need another job if I wouldn't

A mbp will probably be usable for another 3-4 years minimum over an equivalently powered windows laptop in my opinion. You will still be getting value out of it 7 years from now.

If you dislike it and plan on selling it, you should do it soon. The new 14/16 macbook pros are coming out sometime this summer.

No it's great. Just seems like I paid way too much. Oh well.

I saw in the other Dell forum that someone chatted with a rep to cancel and they offered an additional discount. I did the same and they offered an additional $100 but you have to be prepared to cancel if they do not offer it.

Total cost now down to 1681.

I've heard the story that once you accepted the offer, they will void your rakuten cash back, and they will void it after pass return window. So...YMMV

That's not true, I got a cancellation discount but still got my rakuten cash.
