    I was looking at the 7700HQ version of this that's $1999 at MicroCenter. The 7820HK model appears to have been discontinued - the only place I can find it is Amazon where it's $2700 (plus tax). Doesn't seem worth it for that kind of price difference.

    Can you please post links to both?

    There must be more to differentiate them for that price difference than the CPU. :)

    The 7820HK model has 32 GB of RAM and 512 GB of SSD storage, versus the 7700's 16 and 256, respectively. Nice value adds, but again nothing I'd deem absolutely necessary given the $700 difference.

    The 7700HQ is on "SALE" at Microcenter for $500 off :)

    $2,499.99 SAVE $500.00
    $1,999.99

    That's the difference, the other $200 to get to $2,699.99 is parts.

    You need to find the 7820HK model at $2,699.99 on sale for $500 off, maybe call and ask Microcenter webcenter to see if they will be carrying it and putting it on sale soon.

    And, watch for online sales elsewhere. :)

    The 7700HQ version has been $1999 for weeks. The strategy here seems to be following the Kohl's model - have a crazy high MSRP then perpetually put it on sale so that people think they're getting a deal. And a deal it certainly is - you can't find any brand-new laptops with a GTX 1080 for that kind of money.

    As I said before, the 7820HK model is not available anywhere but Amazon right now, and I'm sure once they go out of stock there, you won't be seeing it again. B&H says it's been discontinued, and Adorama Camera says it's no longer available.

    Yeah, EOL laptop pricing is usually like that. The lower end model(s) left in stock are being moved at heavy discount to get them out of inventory. Top end models are hard to find and everyone with them are sitting on them at full MSRP waiting for them to hatch (sell).

    It's up to you, buy what you want at full price, or settle for a little less performance for a lot less.

    Or, wait for the new generation to ship :)
