Fixed the typo :p
Sorry for that I'm a knob sometimes🤣 hope you find something lekker. Some pretty awesome deals on 2070 machines. And at 1080P it's perfect. If you get 4k display you'll be limited to 60hz unless you wanna spend big bucks and there too 2080 might not be best bet. Just my 2 cents and I hope it helps

You are the high roller here - maybe you should buy a RTX 2080 brand new, use it for a week and then sell it to me for dirt cheap ;)

I am thinking of selling my Alienware Area 51m. Darkside of the moon, 1080p 144mhz ips with gsync and tobi eye tracking. i7 9700k, RTX 2080, 32Gb ram(2x16Gb 2400mhz) has 4 ram slots. m.2 - 1 Samsung 960 Pro 512 Gb, m.2 - 2 Intel 660p nvme 2 Tb, Ssd Samsung 860 QVO 4 Tb. Both m.2 drives got the dell heatsinks. Warranty till 7 March 2020 and it can be extended for $177.65/year online special, something I was planning on extending as dell has good warranties and change of ownership and country for warranty(was bought in the US) is all easily done online. I got the box as well still in its brown wrapping. I also have the alienware vidicator 2 backpack but it got some bad scratches on the alienware logo. I am thinking of rather getting the new m15 or m17 as I travel alot and the area 51m with its 2 power supplies does get heavy.

Howzit man

I am interested - what would you be looking at pricewise for the laptop?

Any chance I can get the service tag so I can get a quote on extending the warranty?

I also do quite a bit of travelling, but looking for something beefy to use at work and home when I crunch data. Would like to add another 32GB of RAM at well

Hi I do not really like haggling so shoot me a fair number the service tag is COHZNF2, It has win 10 pro. And when I upgraded the 1tb hdd, I did a complete disk partition copy so you get the original dell recovery aswell. As you prob know the area 51m only supports upto 2400mhz ddr4 and 32gb is plenty for gaming but if you need more, only 2 of the 4 slots is populated with 16gb sticks. So you can get to 64Gb.

I am in the cape town area at the moment, but will be going to Nelspruit around 12 December maybe we can meet up then?

I also sell stuff on bidorbuy as such I started using the courier guy for deliveries and I am willing to use an escrow service like shepherd(from gumtree).

@JanvN

I've got the following on hand:

DEMO MSI GE63 Raider 8SG RGB 15.6” Gaming Notebook
Intel Core I7-8750H 2.2 GHz Coffee Lake Hex Core CPU (6 cores, 12 threads) with 9MB Cache (Turbo up to 4.1 GHz)
24GB DDR4 RAM
Intel 2TB M.2 NVMe SSD + 1TB 7200RPM Hard Drive
15.6” Full HD 144Hz G-Sync IPS Display (1920x1080)
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 graphics with 8GB VRAM
Infinitely Variable Steel Series RGB Backlit keyboard (Full Keyboard with numeric keypad)
Windows 10 Professional
Ex display demo – excellent condition (tiny scratch on top cover)
Balance of 2-year Warranty till July 2021

Give me a shout if things don't work out on that Alienware and you're willing to take a lowly 8th Gen CPU... (not that the 9th Gen H-series chips are anything more than a shameless rebrand anyhow ;) )
