Bought and exchanged twice due to backlight bleed in these laptops. Ended up returning it. Exchanged it at multiple stores hoping to get a unit off a good batch.

Good brand, but overpriced by about $250.

This popular deal is back from a few weeks ago. Amazon is still selling this for about $1800 and I have this laptop myself and at this price, it's a steal. Get it while you can!

Nice! I was waiting for B&H to open orders back up tonight so I could buy the P65 from them, but I'd rather have the GS65 for only $120. Bought it! 😁

Lol, after the Dell deal for $600 how can one buy this for roughly similar specs performance wise?

The specs on this one are definitely better, especially the screen. It has more RAM and a faster processor too and weighs less. Whether it's worth that much more than the Dell is a choice.

I guess if you don't care about build quality and are just looking at specs... Sure.

You must have not seen any YouTube reviews on the new Dell G3. That thing has superb build quality. And it looks pretty good.

By the way, I'm a huge MSI Ghost Series fanboy. I'm saving up for their GS75 Stealth with the RTX 2080 just because I think it's the best of all worlds laptop. And probably the best looking laptop I have ever seen.

But you have to RESPECT that Dell deal for $600. I actually got it for $600 along with $32 in cashback AND $45 in Dell rewards. Once heck of a deal.

Don't need to see reviews, I've used it in person and it feels like junk compared to the MSI 🤷 I guess if you're only using it for gaming as a desktop replacement and not planning to move it, it's fine. We're comparing the flagship MSI model to Dell's entry-level model here, though, which definitely isn't apples to apples.

I wouldn't call the Dell G3 junk, maybe non-premium feeling is a better description in my opinion.

As for the GS65 being their flagship model, that omage is reserved for their Titan Series.

But as far as performance and usage, being similar specced for over twice the price of what the Dell could have been had for one to decide.

I personally would love to see this GS65 at $999 for it to be a real slick deal.
