Although the price is right, the complaints are significant and make this laptop itself just plain unusable.

Newegg reviews have lots of negative issues. [newegg.com]

Do I need a coupon or something? Or is the price $1399 for everyone in store?

Can you price match coupon with any online retailer?

No, it is in store coupon, and I don't think there are exactly same specs for other retailer

I would suggest avoiding ROG. My current one had a problem where unplugging the laptop dropped the processor speed by 80%. It was a 'feature' that Asus added to increase battery life. It also made it impossible to use unplugged. My coworkers with first gen i3's were laughing at how slow my new i7 was. I also couldn't disable the discrete graphics so miracast was a no-go. I know there were a few other features the BIOS was missing that made it difficult to work with. I don't need overclocking, but I do need normal clocking.

I bought and returned this laptop. The specs are fantastic, but it is one bulky machine that gets HOT. (Check out that mid-2000s screen bezel, too!) With a 1070 maybe the excessive heat is expected? Regardless, I suggest you check it out in person at MC. The in-store coupon was posted directly above the machine.
