    I have been researching desktop gaming computers for a couple of months, and if anyone has experience with the followingPC, I would like input: Lenovo Navidia GTX 1660Ti, 9th Gen Intel i7-9700 3.0 Gz, 512 GB PCle SSD, 1 TB 7200 HDD. I am concerned because I have read about WiFi problems with this and other Lenovo PC's It has what I want and the price is good. I am trying to decide between this and the Alienware Aurora R8 with similar configurations. I would only use it for minimal gaming, mostly for everyday use.

    The only wifi issues I'm aware of are with adapter that have certain Intel chips that support AC, they disconnect at random times. I have one of those troubled adapters but there was a driver update in September that downloaded the other day, I haven't tested the connection though as I use a wired connection.

    Do you really need 1.5TB of storage?

    I'd take Lenovo over Alienware any day of the week.

    I do not understand why you question the amount of storage? I don't see any correlation in memory and the performance/reliability of either computer. BTW, that was the configuration that was available that corresponded to the other aspects of the machines. Why do you recommend the Lenovo over the Alienware. Just curious.

    Probably cause Alienware's are overpriced Dell machines. Only paying for the name.
