I don't think that's a horrible price. You can for sure build something better for cheaper if you build a desktop yourself but in the pre-built world this isn't that bad of a price. I would suggest looking at local used products on Facebook and craigslist if you're open to that kind of thing.

It is a recommendation for someone who isn't exactly comfortable building one themselves.

I'm honestly surprised we haven't seen more on their laptops. The one OP listed doesn't actually seem to be all that bad. In fact, I wouldn't mind owning it myself (provided they're not as bad as their "custom build" desktops).

At times. Use to get a very nice verizon discount... went from 50%($120) of bill to 60%($30) of my primary lines access fee. I guess I shouldn't complain though... I do save about $400 every 6 months on my auto insurance now.

well I'm not sure about their laptops but walmart's PCs are pretty terrible, so i would probably go somewhere else for better value. A desktop will definitely be cheaper than a laptop, and what PC you get really depends on your budget. Around the $800 mark there are some very good value ryzen CPUs. pair that with a cheap am4 mobo and 16gb ram and you've got a great budget PC. Obviously building yourself will be the more cost efficient option, but if you want to go prebuilt i recommend cyberpower. They let you pick the parts, and have one of the lowest manufacturing costs.

It's a TongFang GK5CN6Z. Good build quality and cooling. It's not made by Walmart so don't bash those laptops if you don't have enough knowledge

 

Only concern is after sales support

Won't matter. Even if Walmart refuses to service it, you have a massive assortment of other retailers to choose from, so you're absolutely not on your own. I just bought one. :D Am SUPER excited. I know BobOfAllTrades on youtube has been extensively reviewing this machine over the past couple weeks... so yeah, it gets his seal of approval and he's easily one of the most comprehensive laptop reviewers. Probably along the same level of @HTWingNut if I might say so. :D

Because the price went down, which matches its build quality and makes it a decent choice. I believe it's Dave2D who is shitting on it, and after the price went down, he admits that it is a good choice.

It has been a LONG time coming. I swear... this machine is going to be so freakin' epic of an upgrade. According to Userbench, the 1060 mobile is approximately 2.7x faster than the 960M I use today. :D Which is the same GPU power increase I had last time. :3 (went from a 560M to a 960M and now a 1060N. Nice few jumps. :3)

Those two laptops (the 17" and 15" Overpowered Walmart laptops) are basically the deal of the year for anyone who needs portable gaming that doesn't suck.
It's still more expensive than a desktop of the same specs (DDR4 2400 mhz RAM is not that expensive on desktops unlike higher spec stuff) and conceivably besides a CPU (8600 non K or 9600 non K), you could be spending more on a case and PSU than the other components, the monitor might be one of the most expensive parts, assuming this laptop supports gsync and you're comparing a gsync monitor.  I have no idea if the laptop is optimus (no gsync) or dGPU (usually supports gsync).

 

Regardless anyone who needs a laptop for gaming should jump on these.
