I got my laptops for free through work and ended up giving them away eventually.

This one was a smokin' good price - latest i7, 1080p (didn't opt for 4k cause that seems ridiculous on a 15"), 16GB RAM, big enough SSD with 1TB 7200 for data, 970m which rates pretty well, for $1250. I couldn't find a comparable Dell that would match up, especially at that price. Best Buy had some deal on them and I got Dell to pricematch directly, which allowed me to use my credit. I also got a few hundred bucks back (some deal where you get a credit back, plus Alienware bucks or something), which reminds me, I had better go use.
I would have gone for that deal as well

it really was a no-brainer, especially since my previous laptop was ~4 years old and I rely heavily on it when I work remotely. The Microsoft Store was having even better deals (closer to $1k) but apparently Dell.com will only pricematch specific vendors, of which Microsoft Store is not one of them. I waited about a month before the BestBuy deal popped where I could get a pricematch.

My laptop is under warranty, but xoticpc has been slow to respond.

I threw a rig together..it's acting odd....I need to hit bed so let it download updates and games. It's too big to bring into work.

C9k is running an a MSI gaming laptop with a 970m. I guess it's working pretty good since that guy uses it 24/7.

Obviously with a Business laptop, you have to be more discreet and are stuck to playing infantry. With a gaming laptop, you can bring out the joystick and throttle, and do air support.
