    At this point I am holding on due to sunk cost fallacy, if I saw an Asus Zephyrus S17 in stock today I would jump on it right away and refund the X17.

    While i don't love the design of the GE76, it's on sale with 3080/11800h/32GB/1TB/360Hz screen for 3500$ and in stock on Newegg and ship within 24 hours.

    So yeah, if they don't ship in time and don't give me a GG deal than

    Surprise surprise i just checked Dell website and the x17 is 200$ in rebate.
    Canceled my first order and ordered the exact same model with the +150$ 360hz display upgrade.

    So total is 3015$ (CAD) + taxes for 11800h/3080/512gb/16gbram/360hz/cherrymx

    That's the rebate I got mine at plus another $100 honey found so $300 off in total at time of purchase in July, 4k option of course, plus the $165 credit for the delay in production.

    You will probably face another long delay since you cancelled and re-ordered just an fyi

    Its crazy yall think these are good deals. If you want to pay the least for the most go with the legion 7i. I got mine for 2.4k with a 2 year warranty + accidental. I9, 3080, 32gb, 2tb ssds in raid 0.

    Student Discount 10% + their $800 off deal + 6% raktuken cash back. They have really good discounts pretty regularly, you just have to make sure you’re checking their website often. The raktuken cash back is usually 6%, but sometimes goes up to 10%.

    Even if you’re not a student, you can walk out the door with a max config under 3k (in the states at least) if you time it correctly.

    Without posting a single graphics benchmark result of his 4K variant, but still.. To be fair, he listed most of the drawbacks (with the most notable exception of the slow RAM). Overall, a somewhat superficial job unfortunately. The story about the review unit sounded suspect.
