Dell Insprion 15 i5 gtx1050 + free Microsoft Mixed Reality VR bundle $799 (and many more) @Best Buy

+7 Deal Score
3,194 Views
Best Buy is offering build-your-own combo discounts with purchase of "select PCs" and Microsoft Mixed Reality kits. This is a different offer than the HP and Dell combos that are currently FP. The offer says "up to $200 off" but is ringing up the $399 Acer, Lenovo, HP and Dell kits for free, and the $499 Samsung kit for $99.

There are a bunch of Alienware machines, the Dell Insprion 15, and an Asus RoG laptop eligible for this offer.

Linky [bestbuy.com] Pick a PC, pick a headset, and add offer to cart. Headset should show up at the free/discounted price.

Update: Offer now says "up to $500 off" so doesn't look like a mistake.

Any chance to return/cancel the VR kit or sell it? Any resale value?

Looking at the return policy mentioned for offer, if you return just partial they'll refund amound - free item value/discount amount.

All of these laptops are terribly priced. Sad because I'd pay a little bit of a premium for a headset.

I just bought this. I really want to see how the Samsung Odyssey compares to my Rift. and buying it for $500 would make this laptop $300... which is insane for a 1050ti. Money maker? Probably not, but it would be extremely easy to offload the Dell for $600 flat. making the Samsung MR only around $270 (after taxes in CA)

HERE [pcworld.com] is a pretty decent review of it lambasting the screen for being crap, but I don't really care about that. As the 1050ti is almost double the speed of my old 960m based Lenovo Y700.

The idea of a really portable VR system for hotel trips and what-not for $48 a month (love that poor mans 18 month promo) is a steal.

EDIT: I should note that I just realized the reviews say it has a TN panel, but Best Buys site lists this as having an IPS... guess I'll find out soon enough.

EDIT 2: THIS [youtube.com] video confirms its most likely the IPS which makes this a crazy good value.

The 1050 was $799 and 1050ti is $899, dont see a 1050ti listed for $799.

HERE [bestbuy.com] is the product and included a screenshot of the order.

EDIT: watching THIS [youtube.com] video shows me that there is a high chance it really is IPS!

That said... looks like this may only be a BB Elite deal for the time being. It was $699, $200 off!

Looks like they raised the price of the laptop then =/
Would have gotten it but now it's at $899 for the laptop by itself.​

I just got the $899 Dell Inspiron Ryzen 7 desktop with a free HP VR set. The Dell doesn't show up in the list but the VR set was free with it in the cart. I'm picking these 2 up tomorrow. GL peeps.
