This seems like a pretty solid deal for a laptop. I've been watching and searching for laptops in this price range for a while now. I bumped up the RAM to 16GB instead of 8GB. The total cost of the laptop with Free Shipping, increased ram and no tax (I'm in California) was $1074.00. They are also including "dead pixel protection" for 30 days for free ($35 value).
Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ Quad Core (2.8-3.8GHz TurboBoost, 6MB L3 Cache)
15.6" Full HD IPS Anti-Glare Display (1920 x 1080)
6GB GDDR5 VRAM NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060
Intel® Dual-Band Wireless 2x2 AC + Bluetooth 4.2
Premium Full-size Color Illuminated Backlit Keyboard with 10-key numeric keypad
I hope that this helps some others out there looking for a decent laptop in the 1k price budget. This if my first deal post, so if there is something I need to change, kindly let me know.
