Exclamation Alienware m15x Discount Question.

I am a few hours away from buying the Dell Alienware m15x laptop but when I was looking for coupons I found a 15% off discount and wondered if it is any different that the original laptop. Reason I say this, is the laptop with the discount looks a tad different, but the main problem I have is when I'm configuring the processor is;
<.< Hope I can post links, but I need a few opinions.

Link to the discounted m15x model :
http://configure.euro.dell.com/dells...&~lt=alienware

Link to the original m15x model :
http://configure.us.dell.com/dellsto...&~lt=alienware

The discount processor says :
"Intel® Core™ i7 Processor 820QM (1.73Ghz, 8MB L3 cache)",
but the original, non discounted one, says :
"Intel Core i7 820QM 1.73GHz (3.06GHz Turbo Mode, 8MB Cache)".

What I would like to know is: Will the discounted model be the same as the original and have the turbo boost processor? Even though they seem like the same processors it does not state the turbo boost is on the discounted model.
Also, is the discounted model m15x inferior to the original 1,500$ one in any way?
I know they're stupid questions but I would rather be stupid now then not get what I payed for and suffer later.
If anyone could please help me understand this more, I would be very appreciative.
