Do be aware that mobile variants of a GPU are weaker. Though the 780M is still about as strong as a 7970, apparently.
Let strength be granted, so the world might be mended.

great deal if it's a desktop.
i still haven't found what i'm looking for...

Come on guys, that's a great deal. Alienwares usually cost a bunch, it also has a 780. If it's a laptop it's an even better price since they're usually more expensive, even though the 780m isn't as good as the 780.

great deal for a laptop.

only alright deal for a gaming computer.

also, don't care what anyone says but any above-mid-range-laptop absolutely requires a cooling pad or say goodbye to it within a couple of years of regular gaming.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

Can you people not use Google? It's a desktop. The i7 and 780 alone cost about a grand. Good deal TC.

Nice steal. DELL is crap but that sweet case is worth $200 alone. That's the only great thing about Alienwares imo.

I have Corsair 600T case which is good in it's own right but I would love to switch it with that Aurora case.

That's not bad. You may want to get a better PSU in the future, but I can't really bash that.
