I cannot believe that it was $1085 ever for a new and even $856 for Open Box is hard to belive. Not all Alienware 17 R4 are same. What was the internal configuration?

The hardware configuration is similar but that model is 17 R3 as per Micro Center product page, AW17R3-7001SLV-OUS. Also If you go through the thread then you will find out that it is $1300 for most of the Stores or not available at all. It probably lacks the Thunderbolt 3 Port as well.
So on the basis of a deal, which is not available for majority of the folks, giving TD to this deal which is available for every people, is not a good idea.

The hardware configuration is the exact same. It's a better deal still sitting at $1300. Still has thunderbolt. The r4 and r3 have very different cases. The pictures, and all of the specs are the same as the laptop in this post.

But, not everybody lives in Ohio, yeah!
I had checked the deal you are talking about.
It was just one piece and same with the open box that you bought.
Only luck matters in those cases.
1400 for the piece above is really a good price.
With Newegg you don't pay taxes for all except CA and NJ.
For NJ, it is easy for all to get it delivered to some friend or family in NYC, PA or DE to avoid 7% tax.

As of Microcenter deal, I think, somebody at Ohio store listed the 17R4 wrongly as 17R3 and that's why the very low price.
It is available at no Microcenter store with that kinda price now.
And I don't think it will ever be available for 1084.99 again.
An inventory mistake, it seems.

Thanks for talking some valuable words and describing the actual scenario here. I was a bit upset because of all the TD in this thread because of some deal which is not available to 99% of the folks out there and only some extremely lucky folks. And as you have mentioned, that price was due to probably price mistake, by listing it as R3 model instead of R4.

I went to the Micro Center Site and checked for various states and it was nowhere to be available. But people may be missing this deal thinking that they can get this at $1000 and then find out that is impossible.

Thanks for the appreciation.
If you are Okay with 17" screen and weight of the 17R4, go with the Newegg deal.
It is the best deal so far for a NEW Alienware with the GTX 1070 and other specs that the deal model carries.

I saw that and it was B&M only with incredibly low availability. None were ever available in my area. A lot of people in that thread are saying none available too, and I doubt more than 10 were available at that price.

IMO this is a better deal than this SD sponsored/rebate Alienware deal. You'll be surprised how the shills in that other thread are up voting it and posting that it's a great deal and that their planning to get it.

I agree this is a better deal than the sponsored one directly from Dell. 8GB RAM + 256 GB M.2 SSD + Windows Pro and not having to deal with a rebate are worth $230 - tax to me. (The RAM + SSD are probably worth about $175; tax for me is > $85.)

Really? Do you have a basis for comparison? How do you feel about the price of this model [dell.com]?
