      Indeed, Alienware are always overpriced and it gets worse when combine with JB-HiFi pricing.


      yea that's true, ive got an old gen gigabyte gaming laptop, 4th gen, still running like new, only issue the laptop construction (this model) is not sturdy solid build. but happy with the performance and spent only $1500 new.

        Still running on my 3 year old laptop. GTX 880M, 32 GB, 2xM2-256GB in Raid 0. i7, Bit more then $1500 when new


          nice, mines GTX 850M 4GB, 16GB RAM, 128 solid state, 1T, i7 2.5GHz, pretty sure it was either $1500-1600 new.

          i suppose theres no need to upgrade, just tempted to grab a good deal when i see one lol


      Yeah, I agree. It should be cut down to around 1500 for good deal


    50hz, why??

    I'm fairly certain 50Hz is a typo on the JB website (from 60hz)


    Is there any good gaming laptop on bargain nowadays? I'm looking for something similar with 512SSD (or 256) + GTX 1060 (or 1070), but would like to avoid Alienware and Metabox stuff


    At that price I would be hoping for at least a GTX 1070 minimum and much higher storage SSD or a 4k screen touch or no touch with a GTX 1060.

    For best bang for buck GTX 1060 laptop this is still my go to for the best value GTX 1060 laptop, the Acer Predator Helios 300 from Amazon.


    Acer Predator Helios 300 Gaming Laptop Specifications

    7th Generation Intel Core i7-7700HQ Processor (Up to 3.8GHz)
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 with 6 GB of dedicated GDDR5 VRAM
    15.6" Full HD (1920 x 1080) widescreen IPS display
    16GB DDR4 Memory & 256GB SSD
    Up to 7-hours of battery life
    Red Backlit Keyboard

    Disclaimer: US power plug

    $1673.10 AUD after shipping and handling and import fees deposit (fluctuates with USD AUD exchange rate)

    Only drawback/issue is maybe longer 3-4 weeks international shipping and the need to source an AU plug or adapter since it is US shipped from / located.

    Also no 1tb HDD only 256gb SSD so need to add more for your own personal HDD.

    It is a barebones but greatly specced GTX 1060 laptop with room for improvement and customization.

    But personally if I were to buy this I would be putting in my own 1tb or 500gb Samsung SSD and maybe a Seagate or WD HDD for media files.

    Not sure if RAM is upgradeable to say 32gb or 64gb but I assume so sorry can't confirm.

    Overall it is a great buy for a new laptop but if money and time is a concern the one up above is also a great bang for buck laptop (the refurbished Asus eBay one).

    Still finding my dream GTX 1070 laptop as that is the peak optimum level that I want to game at and buy. If one pops up with maybe even a 4 screen I would happily pay $2k AUD for it

    GTX 1080 prices are still way too crazy for my liking price premium is crazy.. even 1070's are pretty pricey but the bargain hunt is more manageable I feel for me and so the hunt for the best value price continues.


      Most products shipped directly from the US dont include international warranty, and if you're dropping $1673.10 AUD on anything, you would be insane not to get warranty on it :L
      That being said, imo if you find any gtx 1060 laptop in Australia for less than $1600, you're getting a crazy good deal.


        Pretty much yeah haha lol.

        I just have bad experiences with warranty because mainly if something were to go wrong with one of my own laptops it would be because of uncovered user error and abuse than standard replaceable warranty errors haha lol. So warranty doesn't weigh that much for me. But yeah if I were to get a doa item anytime soon it would possibly maybe be Marist and would definitely affect my future purchases and possibly make me reconsider. Sometimes the raw price of the item gets to me and attracts me too easily haha lol :p :)


          For me warranty is really important if i am shelling out loads of money for the laptop and if something goes wrong, i shouldn't be burning even more money….worst part is that you might not be able to get it repaired if you have got it from onsite as they might not be supporting it in your locale…


    How come all of these gaming laptops have such small screens?
