  • Q: Does this have a UHD G-sync screen? When is it available for sale?  (2 Answers)

    By RalfTech 

    • Best answerThe screen is QHD with G-Sync at 120Hz on this model . There are configurations with UHD, but they are not G-Sync and run at 60Hz, although the display quality on them is fantastic. One thing to be aware of with the G-Sync models is that they do go through battery a little quicker, but can be worth it in terms of performance. Also if you are gaming on it I feel like QHD is the sweet spot for a GTX 1080 on a 120Hz screen. While I can't speak for Best Buy or Alienware officially, one of the Alienware reps on Twitter mentioned these will be officially dropped sometime late February to early March and I'd imagine Best Buy will get them sometime shortly after that.

    • Best answerIt last for quite a while. I have had it run 4 hours straight doing heavy things. You may already knee or not that gaming computers speed is faster when it is plugged in, which is helpful when you want things done in a timely manner. Even when its not plugged in its pretty fast and stays cool due to its built-in fan vents, which is not small like others so it has great circulation.

  • Q: can i order online and pay cash when i pick it in the store ?  (2 Answers)

    By yuri 

    • Best answerNo. It doesn't work like that, however you CAN go to the store and tell them "I WANT THIS ONE!!! MWAHAHAHA" And then they say yup okay it's three grand. You slap the cash on the counter like a balla that you are the magical wizard behind the counter presses a few mysterious buttons and POOF within a few days your laptop manifests from absolute nothingness, and you get a weird text message on your phone and you look outside your window with the realization that it's time. IT'S TIME TO PLAY GRAND THEFT AUTO FIVE IN 4K. GRAPHICS OF THE GOOOODDDDDDDDDDDSSSSSS AHAHAHA

  • Q: Is the 32gb DDR4 2400MHz better than the 16gb DDR4 2666MHz for gaming or is the 2666MHz faster and better?  (2 Answers)

    By Jonny 

    • Best answerI have this exact same laptop at home and I ended up choosing 32 GBs after looking it up on dell’s website. I copied and pasted their info below. Basically, if you’re only going to run a single game, maybe you’ll be better with the 2666 MHz. If you’re into streaming like I am and want to run teamspeak, stream, and your game all at the same time then you should probably go with the 32gbs. Random access memory (RAM) — commonly known as memory — is the temporary storehouse for the data flowing to and from your PC's processor. All else being equal, a system with more memory can: -Deliver fast performance -Handle more open files at once -Open large files -Work with more open software programs at once -Respond faster when gaming Memory speeds are measured in megahertz (MHz). One hertz equals one action per second. A megahertz equals 1,000 actions per second. That means memory rated at 1,333MHz equals 1,333,000 actions per second. The faster the memory, the more actions can be completed in a short span of time, and the greater the system’s multitasking capabilities. A system containing 6GB of 1,600MHz memory can perform better than an identically configured system with 6GB of 1,333MHz memory.
