Wouldn't recommend buying a gaming laptop with a mobile nvidia chip anymore, at least not at this price point. You can get the newer models with the full desktop 1060 in it for this same price point or less. For the original price of this laptop you could get something with a 1070 or better.

Yeah especially with the newer chips out they need to drop the price of these dramatically. If it has a thunderbolt port, there's always the option of running an eGPU setup.

The new chips make the 970 GTX slow at this price-point. I'm running an Alienware computer with the almost the same specs less the 256GB SSD but mine has a 4K 17.3" screen, I paid $1,200 from Bestbuy 2 months ago for it.
