    I've seen some of the TM Model Barebones eurocom is selling on eBay get accepted for offers much less than what they are asking I think I've seen offers as low as 1200 USD Get accepted.

    The other way is to get incredibly lucky and buy used on ebay ~8 months old (with the balance of a transferable 3yr warranty) for a touch less than half price. Original invoice incl tax was maxed out overkill spec about $8200 AUD, I bought for $3800 then sold off 32Gb of the RAM and both 1Tb SSDs recouping over $1k. One of the few benefits of a small market here in Oz - sometimes there's no competition and you're the only demand.

    Hi TheDantee,

    You got a unbeatable steal of a deal!!! I wouldn't be able to get such a price unless I used a 5 finger discount to get anything close or cheaper than $2250! Just the 7700k and your GTX 1080 SLI with vapor chamber alone are about $2250 (USD)!!! Nice!

    What naive elderly woman (or desperate for money Clevo enthusiast) did you steal that sweet P870KM from? :)

    Hi Bennyg,

    I hope the seller of your P870TM isn't reading this because you got a huge bargain as result of the small market in Oz. Well, it's a win - win transaction, you got a bargain and she/he got their probably much needed cash. Not to many people that can pay $3,800 for a used laptop.

    Congratulations!

    Hi Meaker@Sager,

    Thanks. And I like your straightforward candor conveyed in a very polished diplomatic manner. That type of skill usually can only be gained by an analytical person with years of experience dealing with various personalities.

    Cheers! :)

    I live in Canada near the Toronto area lots of good tech deals come up around here I got 64GB of Ram at 2666MHz a few years back for 330$ Canadian also a good deal at the time. The guy I bought I off said he was getting out of gaming and had a few laptops for sale and didn't really know what the clevo was worth.
