People had been getting this deal through customer sales chat the day before for $30 above the promised doorbuster deal. Last user report said they got it for the exact same price now that it's the day of the sale. Please post experiences in thread and update wiki as neccesary.

When going through chat you can do various upgrades. Some of these are:
Keep the stock 550W PSU and add AIO Watercooling (+$50)
Upgrade to 1000W PSU and add AIO Watercooling (+$200)

Add Killer NIC Wifi 6 Wireless Card (~+$20-$30)

There's more upgrades available. See the non-deal version of the R10 for possible upgrades here [dell.com] and rough prices.

R10 Specs (Updated 11/2020; Also attached to post): https://dl.dell.com/topicspdf/ali..._en-us.pdf

R10 Service Manual (Updated 8/2020): https://dl.dell.com/topicspdf/ali..._en-us.pdf

NOTE: Dell's Memory used in this system is a PROPRIETARY MODEL manufacturered by Kingston. As such, if you want more than 16GB, you'll likely need to either purchase more memory from Dell or replace all of the memory with retail memory; NO MIX OR MATCH.

See this post for Memory Info (Thanks quantecipher! Make sure to give them rep!): https://slickdeals.net/f/14826469-1200-begins-02-11-alienware-aurora-r10-desktop-3700x-rtx-3070-16gb-ram-512gb-nvme?v=1&p=145296352#post145296352

Stock Dell memory seems overpriced for what it is and many users highly suggest, if upgrading to 32GB, to buy your own 32GB kit that's compatible with this PC instead of buying 32GB through Dell. See post on memory again since not all memory modules are stable with the R10 system.

Hope that helps!

I thought it was a great deal until i found out that most of the parts are proprietary. Correct me if i'm wrong but even the GPU is their own custom GPU which means you can't just replace it with a full size 4070/5070 next time. There's also people complaining of thermal issues. That being said, ts a fantastic price @ $1199 for a 3070 but be aware of the limitations.
Considering the street value of even a used 3070 is north of $800 right now, this should sell out in all of about 6 seconds.
7 replacements? Your persistence is commendable. laugh out loud

Anything proprietary inside this PC that would prevent future upgrades?

Why does it say Ryzen 5000 series processor but it's 3700X?

I have an R8. Almost everything is upgradable. I've upgraded the RAM, the NVME and the power supply. The video card is upgradeable as well. The PSU was a little tricky because the form factor does not fit every PSU but there are enough PSUs out there that fit fine.

So its not quite as easy as upgrading a DYI, but certainly not a deal breaker IMO.

Seems like a great deal to me, it will be one of the cheapest deals that will allow decent gaming on a 4K monitor.

Wonder if these systems will sell out in a short amount of time, or available for a while after the deal starts at 4PM?
