Same computer went Frontpage a few days ago from B&H for $1099, so I think this is a great deal as it is $100 cheaper and you get the bonus items.

The difference between 60hz and 144hz is night and day. If you've never used it, I would understand why you don't get this. The difference between 1080p and 4k on a 15"-17" monitor is nowhere near the difference between 60hz and 144hz. You are gaining zero tactical advantage by running 2k or 4k over 1080p at such a smaller monitor. Additionally, monitors in general are pretty terrible at 4k. They lack the brightness that you find on 4k televisions (300 nits compared to 1000+ nits).

No one is pushing 144hz in 1440p on a laptop. It's not happening. No one is buying 1440p/144hz laptops. They don't make them for a reason. Laptops struggle to push 1440p at high refresh rates.

Very few laptops are pushing 60 FPS in 4K either. So few people are going to be willing to play games in 4k under 60 FPS for a higher price when they can play the same game in 1080p at 144hz. Don't think your RTX1060 on a laptop is equal to the RTX1060 on a PC. This is why all tech websites break down these GPU by their application (PC vs Laptop). Laptop GPUs are almost always weaker, with very few exceptions (Max-P versions instead of Max-Q versions)

There was a Tech Linus episode this week comparing 60hz gaming to 144hz gaming 244hz. They pitted a bunch of pro-players against each other for different reaction tests, aim tests, speed tests, and sniper battles. Shroud was one of the top known pro players who was involved in the test. Shroud took 40 attempts at 60hz to nail the "double door dust" sniper shot that all pros practice. This is a professional CS player struggling to find the timing to nail this shot. Then put him on 144hz next, and he nailed 8 out of 10 attempts.

144hz is a huge advantage over 60hz in FPS games, which is the biggest genre in gaming right now. Games like PUBG, Fortnite, Counter Strike, and Modern Warfare all offer huge advantages in higher frame rates over lower frame rates. At the same time, you actually struggle in 4k mode due to the fact that the game in 4k mode now offers more "realistic" imagery such as a giant sun shining in your face and making it impossible to look in certain direction due to the blinding sun and shadowing.

I play in 1440p / 144hz and can't stomach playing in 60hz anymore. I would easily go with 1080p 144hz over 4k in 60hz in any game.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OX31kZbAXsA <- 36 minute test of 60hz vs 144hz and 244hz between pros of FPS gaming. Features Shroud, MrGrimmmz & Corey from Justice League, they also have two casuals to help show that a casual player perspective.

Thanks for sharing but what in the mind of newegg to give a backpack fit up to 15.6" with a 17.3" laptop. Very strange offer.

I got restocking fee before even if the product is unopened. They will open the box when you returned it to make sure its the right product and then charge you the fee. 😔 never again newegg!

Newegg policy states: Returns are subject to restocking fees of 15% – 25% of the purchase price and return shipping fees.

But then: For purchases placed between November 1, 2019 and December 24, 2019 you will have until January 31, 2020 to return your product. There's nothing additional that you have to do!

Does anyone know if this will still get a restock fee if returned?

I believe later in their policy they say no restock fee if product is unopened. You are just responsible for shipping.

Shady, but that's what the restocking fee is for... literally charging you for the extra work they put in to secure themselves from further loses instead of eating the cost and the price to do business.
