First and foremost, I believe this is my second or third post, so please feel free to comment on things I forgot to add.

Found this perusing Best Buy's website, thought it was a pretty decent deal. Yes, the screen is 60Hz, but panel upgrades on this model are actually quite easy (spudger tool to remove the bezel, unscrew/disconnect old panel, install new one). You can get a 15.6" 120Hz panel for ~$70 and this is a pretty formidable upgrade to other $1000 1060 6GB laptops for only ~$170 more, as you are getting a full 1070 mobile card rather than max-Q.

Further, you can return these in-store to a local Best Buy, so if you are worried about TIM application and do not know how to repaste, feel free to order two and return one with worse thermals.

Also, this does have the 99 WHr battery and not the 60 WHr one, so it will actually have respectable battery life for productivity work.

Here is the model number for all specs:
AW15R4-7620BLK-PUS

Yeah, it has a better graphics card and probably better processor.

I bought a 17.3" MSI GE73 Raider RGB-672 for $1100 a couple months ago! It was on sale for $1300. I bought it and a few days later I call Costco Rep to ask a simple question regarding price match and the Rep accidentally gave me a price adjustment of another $200 off thinking that I purchased it at regular price of $1500. Came out to be $1100 after the price adjustment!

It might be helpful if you had a link to the 120hz panel upgrade.

I ordered one of these from Best Buy and it arrived; the packing was atrocious. The Alienware box was actually protruding from the box it was shipped in, there was no bubble wrap or protective wrapping of any kind, including in the Alienware box itself. I could shake the box and hear the laptop and power supply sliding around and hitting itself in there. I did not think a $1000+ laptop would be shipped like this.

Rather than open it and find a cracked screen, I took it directly to the store in the box it came in and returned it. I think the people who ship the .com orders really don't care.

I'm curious if anyone else has seen this when ordering open box excellent laptops from Best Buy.

It's really too bad too, that's a great deal to get into a 1070.
