It’s not often we see an excellent deal on a gaming laptop, especially one packed with powerful specs under the hood and with a 17-inch screen like the M17 R5. Of course, this does tend to make the laptop relatively bulky, but that’s a fair trade-off for the deal from Dell bringing the m17 R5 down to $1,200 rather than the usual $2,350.
We rarely see high-end
Speaking of e-sports, if you plan to stream yourself playing, the AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX CPU is powerful enough to let you both stream your game to Twitch or Youtube. As for productivity, the CPU can handle complex tasks like graphical or audio editing, and the 32GB of DDR5 RAM makes programming and CAD use a breeze. In fact, the only real nit-picky part about the M17 R5 we could find is the 1TB of SSD space, which is certainly fine for most use cases, although with how big most modern AAA games are, storage space might become an issue after a while.
Overall, the M17 R5 is an impressive device, and while it doesn’t run at 2k or 4k resolutions, it’s truly a beast of a laptop, and with the massive discount from Dell down to $1,200, it’s a steal as well. Of course, we still encourage you to check out some other great gaming laptop deals, especially if you’re ok with compromising the refresh rate for resolution.
