Microcenter is selling the Dell Inspiron 15r Special Edition for $699 plus $20 shipping. This is for online sale only.

Link to deal. [microcenter.com]

The specs are:

15.6" 1080p Widescreen Matte Display
Intel Core i7-3632QM
8GB DDR3-1600 RAM
1TB 5400RPM Hard Drive
AMD Radeon HD 7730M
8x DVDRW Drive
8-in-1 Media Card Reader
Microsoft Windows 8 Home

As an owner who bought this in Black Friday, here is my feedback on the laptop as a whole, and its gaming potential for those interested:

The 1080p screen is exceptionally good with a non-reflective nature (no lights reflecting from all angles), has superb color reproduction, and is a joy to watch movies, photos or even game.

It won't play recent games at full res (1080p) fluidly at highest quality, with few exceptions. Here is a practical reply with no charts. I prefer a fluid playing experience over an extra notch of whatever. Choppiness kills a game more than anything for me.

Skyrim - I play it with some 30+ mods (which obviously slows things down), mostly high-res textures. I play it at 1366x768 at High, with 16xAF and get 40+FPS outside (with plenty of shadows), and more inside.

Batman Arkham City Benchmark - avg 33FPS at 1080p.

Deus Ex HR - I play this at 1600x900 for added fluidity. I get at least 40+FPS at all times.

XCom Enemy Unknown - 1080p, all options on, completely fluid even cut-scenes. I only mention, as I love the game, and deserves mention.

I should add that when playing I use a very light OC (quite safe), going from 575/900 to 620/950 with a slightly better fan profile. It is not noisy FWIW, nor does the keyboard or rest pad below it get warm. The backlit keyboard is a true pleasure.

Overall, I think it is an outstanding laptop for the price.

If this was last year's blackfriday deal, I would've gotten it, but times have change and my expectation is higher now. Thanks for your input.

Passmark: 7123 [cpubenchmark.net] very impressive for a laptop.

Do they take competitor coupon the BB $100 off?

Or does MS carry/price match? I have a bunch of GC from last year left over.

How do I edit the title?

Edit: Nevermind, I figured it out.

Edit 2: It is actually for online sale only, which I added to the post. I edited the price to include the shipping though.

Why? It looks like it is available online. Am I missing something? Is it ship- to- store only? Never bought anything from MC. So I am new to their buying process...

Great deal. The only thing this is missing is a touch screen.

Yeah - I'm looking for a laptop for my kid for his bday in early April. Would prefer to be touchscreen and hope for closer to $500, but also don't necessarily need an i7.

Sorry for the confusion. At first glance it looked like a B&M deal.

Nice deal - although 1080p on a 15 inch seems like overkill. I think 900p would be perfect.

What makes it special edition?
