    Hi everyone, posted this in the Alienware 18 forum but thought I would get your input.

    Water damage to my Alienware 18 (SLI gtx 880m, I7 4870, 16gb ram). They are looking to offer me the 17R5. I requested to have the specs before I sign off, I just wanted to hear from you guys if it is worth it. Will update with the actual specs

    Alienware 18 has little future left and has too many limitations.

    Sounds like you're getting a deal but have to know what the specs are.

    Definitely a deal IMO, assuming 8750H+1060

    Ok, I will accept. I just got a new P65-F1 and looking forward to hooking up a good cpu to play some of my games. Thanks
