This is an ebay front page deal.

Intel 6th Generation i7-6820HK Processor (8MB Cache| 3.60GHz Turbo Mode / 2.70GHz non turbo mode)
256GB SOLID State Drive + 1TB SATA Hard Drive 7200RPM
Display 4K 17.3" UHD (3840x2160) IGZO IPS Anti-Glare 400-nits Display
Video Card NVIDIA GeForce GTX980M with 4GB
Additional Features 4-Zone, multi-color RGB keyboard with AlienFX lighting controls, 2.1 Megapixel Full HD Camera with Dual digital microphones
Wireless Card Killer 1535 802.11 ac 2x2 WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1
Battery 8 Cell Battery
Memory 8GB RAM at 2133MHz (easily upgradeable to 16GB with Newegg ram)
Condition Brand New in Original Dell sealed Black box. These are Brand New units and not Outlet New.
Operating System Windows 10 Home 64-bit English
Shipping is free

I like this model because it has the higher end i7 6820 processer, the highest graphics at 980 and the higher screen @ 4k and a large SSD and a 1TB drive. Memory is low at 8GB but adding another 8GB to make 16 is about $30 on Newegg and 5 minutes to install in the bottom panel.

I'm not the best at posting so just tell me what the change... I'm sure there is something.

Fwiw I saw this model along with the R2, the MSI GE and the new Asus ROG line and the Asus has the best build quality, albeit its a bit larger. Asus ROG also has G-sync which the alienwares do not

I have similar configuration now. Screen is awesome and processor can overclock to 4.1Ghz on bios setup without hassle.

There is a little glitch with some old game because of nividia optimus issue.
Ram is DDR4 so expect extra cost than DDR3 laptop ram.

One 2.5 HDD bay, Two m.2 SSD bay.

Have decent subwoofer instead of ODD but you may need to boost bass on creative sound blaster tools to get perfect sound.

Two slots for M.2sata hard drives
one 2.5 slot for standard hard drive size. So 3 possible. This config would likely have 1 free m2sala slot since it has two hard drives to start

first this not retailing for $3299? link please
at least you will have 16 min ram for that price
then the cpu seams wrong in the ebay description.

this is right:
Intel® Core™ i7-6820HK (Quad-Core, 8MB Cache, Dynamically Overclocked up to 4.1GHz)



not sure about this.. to many mistakes to be real..

2*4GB ram , max 32GB ram. Pretty decent specs/price. Problems is over heating ,Warranty is draw back , now it's only 5 month left for warranty. Perhaps need to renew warranty at the end of 2016.
