The i7 and 970m alienware 15inch is currently on sale for $1500, the 4k version is a extra $200+ are either worth it , do alienware break easily. Personally i have never had a problem with dell but i am hearing some horrer stories.

There's 19 games there ....turn the page.....the 970 is still 55% faster than the 970M and the 970 can't do 60 fps on..... 18 of them....only 5 break 40 fps. Are all these games unoptimized too ? Now consider that the 970M is less than 2/3 as fast. That puts 14 outta 19 games < 30 fps

So looks like the same price before discount but without any no name components. Did you call to see how much your discount would be ?



A GTX 970 desktop card can't handle 4k



The 970 (8th) is 55% faster than the 970M (21st) in 3D mark
