First time posting a deal on Slickdeals... forgive me if I messed something up.
Costco is blowing out their stock of Alienware R3 15" laptops for $1099.97.
It's fully loaded:
-Processor Intel i7-6700HQ
-Nvidia GTX 1060 6GB
-15.6" FHD (1920x1080) IPS matte screen (300 nits claimed)
-16GB DDR4 @ 2400mhz (2x8gb)
-256GB PCIe SSD + 1TB 7200 RPM drive
-Claims up to 10 hours battery life so it may have the biggest battery configured (need to confirm*)
-2yr manufacture warranty +2yr additional if you buy with costco visa card.
- Windows 10, blah, blah, blah
- Weighs something beastly
- Costco's lenient 90 day return policy
Model number: aw15r3-4712slv
Costco rep said they aren't planning to restock so whatever inventory they have left is what you get.
Citrus Heights, CA, Costco had 4 of them total:
1 display model, 3 new in inventory - ahem... make that 2 now.
Make a trip to your local Costco as soon as you can if you want to pick one up before they're all gone!
Costco Item number: 1106317 -- Probably easiest to just use this item number and call around to ask if they still have any in stock before you make the drive.
Edit: UPDATE / WARNING some of these laptops may be stock from prior to infamous heatsink/thermal-paste fix from Dell!
The outer box/casing the laptop comes in shows the ship date to Costco. At the time they fetch the laptop, ask if they have any ones past Dec 2016. THIS IS WHAT I RECOMMEND to save you the hassle. Observe picture- I've highlighted where to look:
