    Laptop Specs - Good deal, or wait?

    Hey guys, I'm looking to get a new gaming laptop.

    Here's the link to the deal I'm referring to:
    https://shop.lenovo.com/us/en/laptops...g&action=testD

    To save you from the trouble of clicking it, here are the main specs:
    4th Generation Intel Core i7-4720HQ Processor (2.60GHz 1600MHz 6MB)
    15.6" FHD IPS LED Backlight (1920x1080)
    8.0GB PC3L-12800 DDR3L SDRAM 1600 MHz
    Hybrid 1TB 5400 RPM+8GB SSHD
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 2GB

    All for $899 (before tax) Is this the best price I'll ever see for this level of specs? Should I wait until black friday?

    Pretty decent deal for a laptop. I purchased a Y series from 2012 and it still has great performance.

    Thanks for all the replies! I know these are pretty good specs, especially for the laptop, but what I'm trying to figure out is if it might be worth waiting for Black Friday

    Good price for a laptop. I would recommend DDR4 though since DDR3 is nearly becoming obsolete

    Sorry, I'm not too experienced in this area. Is there a big performance difference between the two?

    Not a huge one but it is something to look into to.

    DDR4 is faster by a little bit. However more expensive.
