Thanks for posting, OP.

Doesn't seem to let you use the $100 email coupon - maybe because Lenovo only lets you add the laptop to your cart with the code 'LEGION5PRO' and you can't apply more than one code?

Correct me if I'm wrong :')

It was weird to me that they included an ecoupon that didn't provide anything. It's poop if the purpose of the ecoupon is to allow you to add it to cart.

Absolutely crazy how a few days ago you could have had the 165hz, rtx 3070 alienware m15 for 1600~ or the Dell branded model for around 1300~.

This price just does not seem worth it.

Agreed - I could see it being used like that just to prevent you from applying other coupons to it, but that seems an inelegant way of doing things.
I'm curious if anyone else is able to apply their $100 coupon code, or if it's just me doing something wrong.

That was for the 3060 version, 3070 was an extra $300-400 on top.

The alienware had QHD 240Hz Gsync+Adv.Optimus for extra $200.
Base Model FHD + 5800H + 3070 was approximately $1620 after 10% email code and another 10% rakuten.

Dell branded only 3060 and I agree both those Dell units having nothing on this Legion. Not even close. Way way better screen and cooling. Legion wins hands down.

Was it not $2200 with the screen option before discounts?

You are correct.
I ended up canceling the AW M15R5, and instead ordered the new Aorus 15p. It seems the new 11th gen beats out the Ryzen 5800h/5900hx in most games. The MSI GP66 and Aorus 15P both come in with i7 11800h+3070 130W for $2399/2299 respectively. It's a little strange that despite the similar specs the GP66 benches a little more than the 15P, could be due to the 280W power brick vs 230W on the Aorus. The Aorus however includes SD card slot, Thunderbolt 4, and 99.9Wh battery vs the 65Wh on the GP66 for $100 cheaper.

Yeah but then your laptop would crap out a month or two after warranty ends. Dell is the definition of planned obsolescence.

what's the tdp difference on the cpus? thermal throttling from increased power draw under heavy loads could offset any gains

The reason why people prefer the legion laptops is because you can turn off nvidia Optimus and use the rtx card fully and also legion laptops use the full wattage for the GPU which is 130W where Alienware is only 115W

I didn't say they weren't popular. Consumer Dell products are awful from my experience. Server and commercial grade are good.

I've tried numerous times for alienware, or Dell, they fail right after warranty ends.

People buy them because they're cheaper than alternatives.
