I purchased this one, last week, for $700- tax free in FLA. How does this compare? I may want to dabble in VR 1-2 years down the road.

That's not a gaming laptop. This one is a gaming laptop. A comparison would be meaningless between the two.

If you are talking about VR gaming, you can't do at all with that. Even this wouldn't make a good experience due to motion sickness.

Not really, are you willing to wait 3 months+?

What's with all these notebooks not having at least one TB3 over USB-C port?

If you're one who plans to "dock" this occasionally and use it like a desktop w/ better monitor and keyboard/mouse, I'd get something with TB3 so you can future proof a bit and at least get an eGPU a few years from now when the 1660 Ti's age is showing.

If you're never gonna use it in a desktop-like situation...this is a good deal for you.

Picked this up on 8/1 on the same deal. My observations from the last time this deal was posted:

1. 8GB is not enough RAM.

-System was hovering at 75-80% utilization at idle. (This could be partially because of all of the DELL bloatware that was pre-loaded and updates that were needed.) Once all updates had completed and I removed most of the bloatware, Utilization sits at around 60% at idle with nothing open. (It's 2x4GB so if you want to upgrade you'll need two dimms.) It performs much better with 2x8GB.

2. This thing runs HOT.

-Temps all over the place at idle ranging from 55-75C. During windows updates, this climbed to the mid-80s and stayed in the 75-85C range while running updates and installing software. Gaming on medium settings drove the temps up to 100c. Took a .140v undervolt to correct the issue.


Also, this does have a spot internally for a 2.5"x7mm drive.

Originally wanted to send it back, but I decided to keep mine. After the undervolt, some other settings tweaks, and a RAM upgrade, this thing performs pretty well.

Costco gent said it was VR ready- but that's Costco

If I wanted VR Ready in laptop, what price point might I be starting at?

thanks again!

A 1660Ti is fine for VR in the vast majority of titles. Hell, when I had a Rift I used a 1060 3GB and only needed ASW in a few very demanding titles like Lone Echo, Robo Recall, and The Climb. A 1660Ti is about on par with the 1070, which is a fair bit beefier than the 1060 3GB. With the highest end sets at higher resolutions or supersampled there may be trouble, but with a midrange like the original Vive or Rift he should be fine.

Granted, I'm not super susceptible to motion sickness, but I'm also not immune to it either as I've experienced it with PSVR a couple times.

You're dead on about that other laptop, though. Not a gaming laptop at all and if the dude wants to do VR in the future he should definitely return it.

Regarding this laptop, this is definitely a decent deal but I wish manufacturer's would cut this 8GB nonsense out. 16GB or bust. Also, if you can't get the student discount, this thing can be had as low as $720 Open Box.

People always thumbs down comments on computer threads... people here just angry? Trying to establish dominance?

Idk, but what I do know is this will play age of empires 2 perfectly.

Hm, got the G7 with the i7 - originally 1200-1300 - at 720$ at best buy a month ago. Not that good of a deal imo.

Was this a student deal or open box?

This laptop from this post can do VR like another poster said. You're looking at $800+, maybe $1000+ if you buy when there are no deals out there.

Also I'd recommend doing some research on your own and trying to get a feel for what level of investment you want to make on a computer (laptop or desktop) and a VR headset. You can go bare minimum or ultra high end or anything in between. If you ask some stranger here they're just gonna tell you things that might or might not be true, and being completely uninformed doesn't help. Just like how that Costco salesman misled you on how an MX230 could even come close to doing VR. There's credible articles out there that should help guide you and it shouldn't take too much of your time.

https://www.cnet.com/special-reports/vr101/

I'd also recommend testing out VR somewhere before plunking a few grand on the whole set up just to find out you don't even like the experience.
