This is one of the best times of the year to build or buy a new PC, whether it's a desktop configuration or a banging laptop. That's because Black Friday is in full swing. It's a particularly strategic time to buy a premium system
, as Black Friday discounts can take the sting out of their premium price tags. As such, you can hop over to Dell today and save $750 on an Alienware m15
The listed "estimated value" on this configuration is $2,149.99. That's a bit optimistic on Dell's part—the list price is not always the actual price—but you're still getting a strong setup for the money. When the discount goes live at 12:00 pm ET (9:00 am PT)
today, the Alienware m15 highlighted here will be available for $1,399.99
Here's a rundown of the pertinent specifications...
- 15.6-inch IPS display (1920x1080 resolution, 240Hz refresh rate)
- 9th generation Intel Core i7-9750H processor
- 32GB (2x16GB) of DDR4-2666 RAM
- GeForce RTX 2060 6GB graphics card
- 512GB M.2 PCIe SSD
- Killer Wi-Fi 6 AX1650 + Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity
This is a partially customizable system. There are additional storage options buyers can select, and also an upgrade option to swap out the stock 60Whr lithium-ion battery for a 90Whr battery for $50.
Some of the storage upgrades are not good values. For example, bumping up to a 1TB M.2 PCIe SSD costs $150, which is a silly price to pay for an additional 512GB of space. However, there's an option to tag on a 1TB SSHD for $50, which is a good deal.
Finally, this laptop also comes with three free months of Xbox Game Pass for PC
, so that's a nice perk. Go here
