Alienware has been an elite provider of gaming rigs and gear for over 25 years, but their stuff rarely goes on sale. There’s a reason Alienware laptops, desktops, and peripherals are a constant presence on “best of” lists for PC gaming year after year — they work well and last a long time. Here are a few of the best deals from Dell’s Summer Sale, hand-selected by SPY editors.
Alienware Aurora R13 Desktop With Intel Core i9
The creatively-shaped chassis and supernatural blue glow from the transparent side panel look vaguely, well, alien. It’s fitting because the Alienware Aurora R13 Desktop with Intel Core i9 processor delivers a truly out-of-this-world gaming experience. The 12th-gen Intel Core i9 processor is lightspeed-quick, running up to 5 GHz in Turbo mode. NVIDIA 2nd-Gen RTX graphic cards pair with AMD Radeon Image Sharpening to create silky smooth graphic performance, and Radeon Anti-Lag controls save you from glitching in the heat of an online battle. Marathon gamers can grind all day without worrying about melting their rig because the Aurora R13’s next-level Cryo-Tech cooling system has an 11% larger-than-standard heat exchanger to keep the Aurora from overheating. A $900 discount on a rig like this is also too good a deal to pass up.
Alienware Aurora R13 Desktop With Intel Core i7
If the discounted price tag on the R13 is still a little too rich for your blood, you can take a small step down in perks and a giant plunge in price by grabbing the same machine with an Intel Core i7 processor. Marked down all the way to $1,199.99, you still get elite-level gaming performance from an AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT graphics card, and unlike many other competing high-end gaming rigs, the Aurora R13 is whisper-quiet despite its considerable power. You can check on the Aurora R13’s performance through the built-in Alienware Command center, which monitors thermal control, overclocking, and even the color of the FX lighting zones.
Alienware M17 R5 Gaming Laptop With AMD Ryzen 9 Processor
If portable gaming is your thing, Alienware has you covered with the M17 R5 Gaming Laptop, which starts at $1,499.99 — $700 off the regular retail price of $2,199.99. Alienware says this is the world’s most powerful 17-inch AMD Advantage gaming laptop, and it’s easy to see why. This portable powerhouse’s base configuration includes an AMD Ryzen 7 6800H processor which can cook up to 4.7 GHz, an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti video card, 16 GB of memory, and a 1TB hard drive that can be expanded up to a massive 4TB. The 17.3-inch display comes standard with Dolby Vision for an incredibly lifelike and immersive visual experience, bolstered by the advanced Dolby Atmos sound. The keyboard — an integral and often-overlooked component to quality laptop gaming — has per-key AlienFX lighting and German-engineered stainless steel switches for a 15-million-keystroke lifespan. Take $700 off this backpack-friendly dynamo during Dell’s Summer Sale.
Alienware 34 Curved QD-OLED Gaming Monitor
Even the best gaming setups can be completely thwarted by a mediocre monitor. If you can’t see your game in amazing color and with smooth, glitch-free movements, what’s the point? Alienware’s 34-inch curved QD-OLED gaming monitor is the absolute perfect companion to your Alienware desktop or laptop rigs, and customers who use code MONITOR10 get $100 off during the Dell Summer Sale. The 3440 x 1440 resolution and slippery quick 165 Hz refresh rate make this the monitor to live up to the power of your Alienware desktop or laptop for peak lag-free gaming sessions. And if you haven’t played on a curved monitor yet, you’re in for a serious treat. You’ll never go back to a cheap flatscreen again once you’ve set yourself up with the unbeatable combo of an Alienware gaming computer and monitor.
