Hmm, hold that thought. The M170 Dell Gaming Laptop has been discontinued as of Tuesday of this week. Expect falling prices VERY soon. I've seen a few in their outlet section that have crept towards the 1500 mark. The laptops in that section are not necessarily just rebuilt, but they may have never left the assy line. I.e. A customer ordered it, then cancelled - now Dell has their custom build and nowhere to ship it. Might check into it. Mine arrives Tuesday.
