So a cousin heard of my dilemma and knows how much I use my PC for gaming and keeping in contact with the world. She asked if I had a lap top and I told her yes an old one that is out of date. She then told me she has a few friends at Dell and to find a lap top for gaming and send her a link, so I didn’t think she was serious and I built a laptop from Alienware and sent her the build specs fully expecting her to say it was too much. Today I got an email saying it has been ordered and to expect it after Thanksgiving…I was blown away. Now I know Alienware makes high quality stuff but is a bit expensive and I fully did not think she was going to buy it for me…I thought she wasn’t serious until I got the email. Long story short I am getting a new monster laptop and feel totally humbled and blessed.
I called and said it was too much but she insisted and told me she got a killer deal from her contacts and not to stress. To top it off she is going to pay for another month at the motel for me too. I have been speechless and in shock most of the day so I called back and said I couldn’t, in good conscious, accept both. I was told I am family and she wouldn’t have me on the streets and without a laptop and to shut up and be happy and she loved me. I cried like a slobbering old fool and we hung up. I looked at the invoice and she even added a carrying case and an external USB dvd reader/writer because the one I chose didn’t have an optical drive.
Here’s the specs:
- 17.3 inch UHD (3840 x 2160) IGZO IPS Anti-Glare 400-nits Display
- 6th gen Intel® Core™ i7-6820HK (Quad-Core, 8MB Cache, Dynamically Overclocked up to 4.1GHz)
- 16GB Dual Channel DDR4 at 2133MHz (8GBx2)
- 512GB PCIe SSD (Boot) + 1TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gb/s (Storage)
- NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 980M with 4GB GDDR5
- Windows 10 Pro 64-bit English
- Killer 1535 802.11ac 2x2 WiFi and Bluetooth 4.1
And assorted accessories and swag. Needless to say I am excited to be able to use a pc and humbled and grateful by her generosity. Just wanted to share and say I will be back online gaming soon (if this motel ever fixes the wifi coverage).
I will however miss the opening week of Albion but I will be there eventually.
