This is kind of a niche system but the CPU will last a while and the GPU is on par with a 2070 115 watt version.

It's good this comes with the next day warranty, because if you buy an Alienware you'll definitely need it
What are some of the typical issues these have? overheating and shutting down? Or GPU fails?

People buy Razer blades that literally last 30 days, I've had quite a few experiences with AW and never once had a bad system, and if there is a error it's nice to know I'll have my system within arms reach at all times instead of weeks of RMA time.

Alienware systems have solid build quality but unless you get them on sale they tend to be overpriced. The nice thing about this system in the CPU which is unlocked and will overclock fairly well especially if you are using the graphics amp. Discussion here:

Same, was ready to pull the trigger. This was at my max spend and then saw tax added. Had to pass.

Unfortunately, the tax free deals are pretty rare unless you live in a state without sales tax.

Not with the 1070. If you are willing to tweak it, you can get some great performance out of the i9 especially if you use the amp down the road. It will be relevant much longer vs the i7 due to the higher clock speeds.

The coupon has been extended through 5/5 but the bonus points have ended. I would hold off and see if the bonus points offer comes back in the next couple of days.

Thanks. Keep going back and forth if I should pull the trigger or wait on something else for a little less $$$. Will be used a lot for video editing. Need something with a 17" screen as I won't always be able to plug into a monitor.
