If you buy this be sure to get a good cooling system because they seems to overheat easily.

The other thing I found out about this system after getting it is that the mobo/chipset doesn’t support gen 4 nvme ssd drives.

Aren't you confusing the alienware cases with the XPS case?

I still haven't received by 10% cashback from buying a lenovo legion during black friday. According to their support, lenovo didn't "confirm" my purchase and they had until the 11th of this month to do it. I followed all the instructions, can see my visit to the lenovo site on Rakuten's website and apparently got screwed. So yea, not trusting them anymore when it comes to deals.

XPS cases also have poor airflow and therefore higher temps

Anyone else struggling to get the 10% Email signup?

I went to Dell.ca Chose HOME, then on the top Deals / Email signup.

sends me to:
https://www.dell.com/preferences/signup ... l=en&s=dhs

I fill in my info + captcha but the page doesn't do anything (Little Spinning Square)

I went high-end with my last Dell XPS 8700 (Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790 ) about 8 years ago and I'm still using it. Other than a bit of slow browsing (Add-Block/Malware Web Guard are slowing me a bit) It still works very well. I'm trying to convince myself that I need a new PC.

You have to first confirm email, then accept to sign up for member advantages and then after 30 or so minutes you'll get a code.

You can go watch some review on youtube for the XPS, you need at least to add a better CPU cooler because the one they give you is trash and hold the performance of this PC.

Anyone buying this computer needs to immediately replace the RAM with dual channel x8 DIMMs. The single x16 they give you will be roughly 20% slower overall.

Desktop components really are too expensive these days. I see deals like this and realize that my recent G15 laptop is even better than I thought. I get better specs, a 165hz screen, half the power consumption, and portability all for a lower price.

Been using this PC (i5-11400) since Dec and it's working well.
There's no issues with cooling...

ordered a similar build from Dell in November. shipping has been delayed twice and still waiting on it. Used rakuten but didn't get cashback and don't expect it. I don't think I would purchase from Dell again based on the experience and it doesn't seem to be an uncommon one.

Dell gave me a $100+tax refund for a two week delay.

if a shipment gets delayed, does rakuten not honour the discount used when initially purchased? or is that gone? I've been waiting on my PC since boxing day

My theory...
Because you haven't received an invoice from Dell for the PC, Rakuten doesn't consider the transaction as complete?
