    Sweet Thanks!
    I ordered a 17R4 with the QHD 120Hz screen for the time being.
    I could not hold out any longer for the 1080. When the 1080 comes out I guess I could bless my wife with the 1070, or something. ;)

    I did the same thing in the UK but the QHD was not available at first glance until I checked Reddit and someone mentioned it was there just hidden from view until for some crazy reason you click to change CPU and then the QHD appears, weird.

    My question is the QHD 120hz a G-Sync panel or standard ?

    Thanks

    the only options I can seem to find is 1080p, 1080p with tobii, and 4k with tobii on the US Dell site.

    Also, there is no 4k 120hz correct? not that it would ever really be utilized though.

    No 120hz 4K correct

    I was able to see the QHD Option by selecting the second config in from the left and changing the option on the CPU, it doesn't actually give an option to change it (stuck with 6700) but it opens up the QHD option (must be a bug on the order page)

    This is for the UK site see if it works on the US one?

    actually found that it's the third option for the us dell site.

    I don't know why they have to complicate things for the buyers.

    just give us the stock and let us pick any option through customize wtf.

    i wish there was a non-matte option though for a flat glossy screen. not a big fan of exposed bezels.

    The QHD does indeed have G-Sync.

    For those in the USA, Best Buy has these available now, with a configuration of the 6700HQ/FHD/1070 for $1799. They had a couple in stock at my local store, but it wasn't on display unfortunately.

    Really want to buy this but speaking to dell sales reps they say the g sync panel is not available in the uk. Although i don't think they know what they are talking about.

    So trying not to be rude. Is it 100% gsync in the uk?
