Nah fam. Wait on that Asus G15 when it goes on sale. U get 1TB Nvme, Ryzen 5900HS CPU, 90Wh battery life, Dolby Atmos speakers (louder) and perhaps better thermals.

Only good thing I guess about this laptop is 2.1 HDMI (120Hz via HDMI). Same RAM, GPU, WiFi card, 165Hz screen and everything else.
When do they usually go on sale?

Quite unfortunate. I used Dell personally for almost 20 years and bought various desktop and laptop for friends and family (70 - 80 of them). I have had a couple of bad models but the rest have been decent especially refurbished (good value). I work with many companies that use Dell and they were ok. I am not sure how it went so wrong for you. On the other hand, I would never ever buy Lenovo. I avoid Chinese brand tech company whenever I know.
You be fair, they both suck ;-)

Sold out. Wasn't compatible with any coupon codes either. Not an amazing deal, but definitely a better option than that hideous cheap plastic G15. Guess I'll be waiting for a while for the X17 or m17 R4 to go on sale.

Quote from BoastfulMice8832 :
No it's way way worse cooling then R4. That's why the R4 was never this low priced, it legit didn't go below 1500$.. meanwhile these R5's are way less.

Essentially these alienware R5's are low quality rebrands of their Dell G series laptops. That's right the alienware R5 isn't an alienware, really, it's a Dell G series(not high quality) repackage. The alienware x15 is the successor to the R4, but that is a really bad laptop.
that is a shame they watered down the R line

i guess thats what you get for separate business units competing against each other
but the problem is, there is one VP that manages the whole dell gaming and alienware...

The deal ends, but Dell replaced it ( use the same OP link) with deal with identical configuration with 512GB SSD instead for $1273.99

This could be in limited a supply. Good luck!

To each their own, but did you watch those videos or at least a few minutes or them? Dell is doing borderline criminal things like charging people for antivirus when they decline and charging for various warranties when it's declined. Not to mention most of their products are made with crap parts.

I get you don't want to support Lenovo, but Lenovo's stuff is far higher in quality at least.

Ignoring the Dell discussion for now, but on the Lenovo front I cannot agree with this since IBM sold the business. China or not. Lenovo has done some shady stuff with software as well over the year...

Anyway, back to my P71 purchases since I picked up 3 of the units for business. The major difference was one had an RTX 3000, one the RTX 4000, and the last one RTX 5000. Even at a deep discount (SD) the systems were expensive with the RTX 5000 around $3200 I believe.

I used all three before handing two out to the client and my intention was to keep one of them for myself. All had QC issues and the forums at the time were less than friendly.

- New model that was discontinued rather quickly. Maybe it was just a bad apple to begin with. https://www.lenovo.com/us/en/thin...e%3Abv0as6
- Users could not get parts (MB failures) a few months after delivery. I could not get a replacement on my RTX 3000 that failed from multiple days (8 hours a day) GPU stress test.
- The RTX 3000 performed about a well as the RTX 4000 and 5000 after throttling. It seemed like a software issue, but the RTX 4000 was definitely the fastest when it worked. When throttled it was slower than the RTX 3000.
- One out of 3 systems had MB failures when doing a mix of 3dMark and Superposition for several days. The other two seemed to fry the GPU since after the first day the 4000 and 5000 series laptop cut performance by a 2/3 (estimate) and even a total OS rebuild did not help.
- All three laptops had varying degree of screen bleeding. All three were 4K screens.
- Lenovo was absolutely no help in resolving and could not get parts. They went as far as telling me that they would send me new units and that sounded strange since they had no MB for replacements. I reinforced that I had three units and all three had the issues with the video card and LCD bleeding.

Not the most structured, but a bit of a rant/discussion if anyone is interested. All vendors/manufacturers have their issues and this goes for individual parts and full systems.

Heck, I saw that Gigabyte has issues with their motherboards failing on AMD.

This is a random question but can these laptops be charged through it's USB-C port? Yes, I know it will throttle down blah blah and no I won't be gaming off of it...but if it could work for office and web browsing, I would be interested. Right now I'm also eyeing the Zephyrus G15 which can do this, but the reviews on that are mixed.

I have a 100W USB-C charger.

Maybe you got a bad batch. Reviews of that machine are great everywhere:

https://www.notebookcheck.net/Len...884.0.html

They say light bleed is fine and thermal performance was great.

Also, I was confused by your naming of the cards. Wink I was like RTX 4000 and 5000? Are you in a time machine? They're Quadro cards, not RTX.

By the way, I got a Lenovo workstation laptop for work about 6 years ago. It was a beast with zero problems at all... still runs today.

Man so much dell bashing here - here's my experience with these OEMs

- ordered 3 dell xps/g5 3060ti desktops in march - best price at time when you couldn't find 3060 cards anywhere - most shipped in time - those that didn't i got dell to refund me some $$$ - able to upgrade cooler/nvme/ram no problem - mining eth straight for months and all run fine/play games fine - almost 2 computers paid off with eth - bloatware wiped with clean windows install that took 15 minutes

- ordered another xps with 1660 super last month - arrived on time - mining nicely - best price around

- ordered dell g15 i7 3060 laptop for friend last month $900 after all offers/cb - arrived on time - mining for him like a champ - runs much cooler than asus he got from bestbuy at $1500 which he returned

- ordered dell g15 ryzen 3060 laptop last week - arriving tomorrow - with double dip amex offers + cb site getting it for almost $800 after taxes

- ordered 2 dell monitors 1440p 75hz and 165hz - both well reviewed on rtings - fantastic price

- ordered hp i5 3060ti on last deal - fair price - delayed shipping over 1 month

- bought over years multiple lenovo T400s series laptops at office - usually pricey - 3-4 have broken in some way over past 6-7 years - have about 4-5 in service at any time so % failure quite high here

- in all years i've owned dells - ONE PSU failed - replaced under warranty - guy came to my apt to swap

In terms of slickdeals - dell as of late has been killing it - yea i would never pay msrp prices like YT reviewers have for dell - no one has to the way amex/chase and cb sites have been running offers constantly on top of dell coupons - not to mention all the dell cash i've earned that rolls into the next purchase

The deal is still available:
https://deals.dell.com/en-us/productdetail/9omn

and maybe more stock coming tomorrow:
https://deals.dell.com/en-us/productdetail/9d89

I think Slickdeals may need a feature to allow resurrection of an expired deal.

Does anyone know if there are any coupon codes that stack with this? I don't find $1180 to be a particularly compelling deal considering the much higher binned and more premium M15 R4 with the 3070 has dipped into $1300-1400 territory multiple times after cashback. This would have to be $1100 or less for me to bite.
