Link me to the 1k deal from yesterday?

Also, "old" CPU is plenty powerful to run games at 1080p.

Yea. It's also not worth this price when you can get better for cheaper. 1060 is plenty for folks too in many cases.

Just search for it, I'm on mobile right now

The deal you're referencing is for a refurbished ASUS unit -- refurb may not appeal to everyone.

Unless you're thinking about the Alienware 13 (13.3-inch screen) from 2 days ago. Still not apples to apples, though.

I'm fine with manufacturer (but not seller) refurbs, but there are definitely enough differences that it's not a good comparison.

Thanks, MallowOni! That's primarily the point I was trying to make. Too many people just seagull an "it's not a good deal" comment without any support/facts.

Makes it hard for others to craft an informed purchasing decision.

I think it's pretty informed. It's a last gen CPU and a higher than usual price for the level of GPU on it. It's simply not a good deal.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I guess see if people bite. I'd be surprised. But there was literally a better deal only yesterday and there'll be another tomorrow probably.

In my opinion, your very first comment was vague and uninformative. Couldn't find or replicate the deal if I wanted to.

Besides the unit condition and processors it's worth noting this has a thunderbolt and a graphics amplifier port. I think, though I'm not sure, that the screen on this is better too. In any case while I'd take the refurb I do think you have to look at more than the processor and price.

Question: Why do all these "gaming" laptops all look so ugly? The garish LED lights, the hideous cheap plastic, priced higher then a comparable quality model, all to support a man-child hobby some people cant grow out of...
