I think this laptop is fine if you want a general-use 17.3" laptop with a decent display, but I don't think it's a particularly great deal.

Most normal use won't benefit from a particularly fast CPU, and the i7-6500U isn't much different from an i5-6200U (if you do need CPU performance for video editing or something, you likely need a quad core, which this isn't). Similarly, the 16GB of RAM might make it sound like a nice choice, but you have to be doing something that particularly benefits from that amount of RAM to be able to take advantage of it. Plus, RAM is cheap and easy to upgrade on your own in most laptops anyway.

If you want to play games. for example, this is better: https://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-Ide...01I7WYHJ2/ (GTX 950M DDR3, 15.6" 1920x1080 IPS display)
