This laptop has the quick access latch to the ram and storage on the bottom of the laptop which made it extremely attractive to me. Ram is upgradeable to 64gb and you can add another ssd to it. The thunderbolt and type c ports offer abilities in the future to add an external graphics card. The reviews on the laptop from every Tech reviewer seemed to be all positive(most gave this laptop 8 out of 10s and 9 out of 10s). The only downfall is the weight (7.5 lbs for the 15" and 8.71 lbs for 17")

I just ordered this laptop last week from Acer's Ebay Store. These laptops are Manufacturer Refurbs. Both come with a 90 day Acer warranty. I have personally never seen these kinds of specs on a laptop for this low of a price. This price usually is in the price range of Nvidia 970m Gaming Laptops. So even though they are Refurbs I think they are a extremely good deal. Will let everyone know how my laptop is when I receive it Friday. Also there are 970m Refurbs for $999. If anyone is interested in those I can link those aswell. I just think the 980m is worth the $200 more.

Good deal, TU. If hadn't gotten in on the Alienware 17 r2 with i7-4710HQ and 980m for ~$1200 from October, I'd be all over this.

Wow awesome deal on a 980m. I was on the fence on the ibuypower MSI ge62 deal since I don't trust their quality. I'm getting this one. Thanks!

Also if they sell out...they usually repost the ad for more pretty quickly (don't quote me on that though). I bought the last 17" and just happened to look again to see if they had more and that's when I seen that they restocked it again after a 3 day period.

I got one of these a bit back, I am having no problem and you can get a squaretrade ebay warranty to cover it for 2 more years.

Love the graphics card in this monster, it's a beast. I play fairly modern games at 4K max settings.
