My buddy and I picked it up the morning and we’re somehow lucky enough not to have to pay duty. Showed them the receipt for 2 and everything. Deal just got hotter for me

Went to Blaine to pick up from 5D package. Only $2 per package with no annual fees and free to register.

Was nervous crossing back because I didn't want to get taxed. thankfully, my line up ended with a cutie , like a younger Sandra Bullock. Thick frame cat eye glasses. Told her I got a $800 laptop. She was surprised at the high price. So I told her it's a gaming laptop. She asked who it's for. I said it for me. She waved me through.

Playing some over watch in stock setting to get a baseline before I undervolt. So far I get 100fps on medium in overwatch.

I'm one of those folks who admits when he's wrong. Looks like, just avoid Overpowered Desktops. The Laptops are better reviewed!

Linus Tech Tips and Gamers Nexus had a field day just ripping on these "Overpowered" pc's....Dont buy based on their reviews...



Ready to eat some crow?

Edit- I never saw your post above haha. My bad. That’s what I was trying to tell you lol. Totally different beasts. I love this laptop, beautiful screen and now bought some dual channel memory and sold my stick to another RFD user.



Also to these guys

there are tons of videos on youtube showcasing why you shouldnt buy a gaming computer from walmart. aside from shipping completely wrong computers, it seems like walmart has doesn't care at all how the computers are put together, slamming parts together all willy nilly. be prepared to returns and headache. pass.

Not sure why so many people take what Linus or any other pundits have to say as useful info. Linus et al are for the most part, youtube clowns making a show versus actually reviewing products. Taking Linus' advice for buying a computer is like watching Unbox Therapy to decide what phone to buy.

The laptop itself shouldn't be that bad. I think people are giving it too much bad publicity because it's a Walmart. Most of the bad rap is from YouTubers but it's about the desktops. These specs are amazing for the price if you can't even appreciate that then just move on. You will not be able to find a laptop here with those specs at that price point.

I can confirm, once you swap out the single stick of ram for dual channel, it’s fantastic.

I am so happy for you that you got a great deal and you showed all those nay sayers that it is possible to get a good deal if you just put some effort.

Keep up the great work and keep posting.

The 15 inch 1050 is back in Stock for $499 USD! Awesome screen with solid specs for a student who does some light gaming too. The screen alone should be worth a few hundred.

This is an even better deal than OP. If anyone plans on going over to pick this one up LMK I can compensate you if you pick one up for me as well!

I politely disagree with you sir.
Linus knows his stuff, even in this video, his diagnosis of the single channel RAM was in the right direction. And that was real time without deep inspection of the laptop.

Two, his opinions are not biassed. Just this week. One of his video was sponsored by Origins PC. Yet another video gave them the worst review out of six PC makers.

Three, he's from Vancouver. Best city in the country, therefore best reviewer in the country.
