    Good buy or bad spec to price? This will be the first Laptop for me. Been a desktop user going on forever now.

    Got it from wally world so if I don't like it I should be able to return

    Seems like the best GPU/CPU I could find for the money.

    I think it's a good price. Probably getting ready to close them out for the newer 2XXX series Nvidia and 9th gen Intels.
