Why not this item:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6834315423

It comes with GTX 950M vs. the 940MX, and 1TB HDD with a 128gb SSD (vs. the 256gb SSD).

Amazon one has a backlit keyboard, that's the main difference. This laptop is super customizable though with the ability to have 3 drives. (2.5 sata, ODD SATA, and M2 slot). I was really trying to pick one up, got sick of waiting at the right price point(Pulled the trigger on an asus 13.3, Don't need discrete GPU).

Yes the 950m is about twice as powerful as the 940mx, but they both use GDDR5. Expect marginally less battery from the newegg laptop (50W TDP design compared to 25W TDP on the 940mx).

Also OP it has been this price $550, for the last 2 weeks. Not competitive when the non-GPU versions have been hitting $380 and the newegg one with the 940MX is going at $465(now $480 [newegg.com]).

I've looked at this model every now and then for a couple months and it's always $550.

It popped up on a scan I ran, and noticed nothing new on SlickDeals since that June post I linked to.

Re-posted its availability due to prior frontpage deal status.

Personally I'm waiting for a quad-core with SSD and Discrete gfx for less than $600.

Will pick this up if it doesn't have a discrete GPU.

Amazon must have something that if an item gets a lot of page views but don't sell much, they figure it's because of price, so they lower it. Because this has been $550 for quite awhile until this thread was posted. Still, I'm waiting for $500.

I bought the E5-575G-5341 from newegg for $575. Thanks for the better alternative $75 more for the faster GPU with a smaller SSD and non blacklightable keyboard. It just happened to be on the shell shocker for today.
