    Could you provide me with a link to that model? Or the model name? Because I haven't seen any 1060 models going below ~$1600s, and the 1050 TI model seems to be consistently around $1300

    I apologize if this has been asked and answered before; what is the maximum thickness of a hard drive that the AW 15 R3 can hold? Can it support 15mm HDDs? I'd like to get a 4TB HDD for mass storage if possible and they only come with a 15mm thickness.

    Might want to ask in the 15 thread and not the 13. But to answer no 15mm will not fit.

    So, I had thought my battery had settled in at 5% wear but it is now showing 10.5% on hwinfo.

    I have had the laptop for about 3 months now I think. Should I call dell and ask them to send me a battery?

    I'm in europe and for some reason my access to the US Dell site is blocked. Try their search function and search for alienware 13 R3 6700HQ or something like that. On the German website it was also not listed under the current Alienware offerings but you could find it in the search. I know they will be selling it here until at least the 3rd of May.

    Thanks for this resource. I was able to find a $1439 refurbished model with OLED, but upon further research I've settled on an AW13R2-5567SLV and just plan on swapping out the Hybrid drive with a Samsung 850 Pro (256gb). Stays neatly <$1200, and works for me since I really don't need anything more than last year's tech. GTX 965M is more than enough for the games I play. Thanks for the suggestions @Drinky, @Digital1337!

    Why isn't OLED an option when you configure the system with dell? I got the i7 version with the 1050Ti and OLED screen for 1700 CAD.
