  1. I mean... Unless the MEG is hundreds less than Dell, etc., why pick this over the Alienware and its excellent warranty? 🤔
    I agree, but this may have more availability. The Dell was months out for delivery on their site last time I checked.
  2. Yeah, I do like MSI products but I've never liked their current branding tier names. I believe that, for most companies, it's their marketing departments that rally behind them since it's their job to do so and the rest of us are just stuck with them.
  3. Any word or info when these will be available? HDMI 2.1 would be a plus also if it comes with it, not limited by the GSync module like the Alienware.

    Not really sure but my guess could be by the end of July or the beginning of August. It seems like there are a number of things (can't remember off the top of my head atm) that should launch then.
