This is a hell of a deal. And regarding the performance of a GTX 1070 mobile, the performance may be actually better than the Desktop version in some Shader heavy games due to the higher number of CUDA cores, even the clock speed is lower.

Check the Mobile 1070 vs Desktop 1070 comparison here:-

In Store Pickup only.

Also another thing to mention, this Laptop is really lightweight for such a heavy weight configuration, only 4.8 lbs. Normally gaming laptops of this size and configuration come around 5 to 5.8 lbs but this one actually pretty light. It is also having G-Sync enabled Display, so gameplay will be buttery smooth.

Really great find OP, Repped.

Recall the days when there was a colossal difference between mobile and desktop GPUs? Well thankfully the current-generation Nvidia GPUs are temporarily minimizing that difference.

That's it precisely:

Note that thermal packaging becomes the big factor, so hopefully this beast of a laptop can keep enough heat pulled off the GPU to allow it to reach its performance limits. I WOULD NOT consider putting this thing on my lap.

Good luck!

I wonder which locations are honoring this coupon. Saw on reddit that someone drove to the store in Houston and they weren't offering coupon.
