With RTX 30 series video cards consistently dropping in price, Alienware is pushing out some very aggressive deals on a couple of its flagship gaming laptops and PCs. The highlight is definitely the Alienware m15 RTX 3070 laptop, since it’s unlikely you’ll be DIY-ing your own laptop. Not only is it one of the least expensive RTX 3070 laptops we’ve seen, it also boasts one of the most powerful RTX 3070 mobile variants. The Alienware desktop PC is no slouch either, with its AMD Ryzen 9 and RTX 3080 pairing, and it’s over $100 cheaper than what we saw last week. These deals and more below.
Alienware m15 R5 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop
This Alienware m15 laptop is equipped with a powerful AMD Ryzen 7 5800H 8-core processor, 16GB of RAM, a 512GB SSD, and of course the RTX 3070 video card. The RTX 3070 found in this laptop has a TDP rating of 125W (115W + 10W dynamic boost), which is higher than the RTX 3070 TDP rating you’ll find in most other gaming laptops. Higher TDP means more power is supplied to the graphics card, and that directly equates to better performance in games. Most laptops are willing to sacrifice gaming performance in order to conserve power and reduce heat, allowing for thinner laptop designs with more basic cooling. Alienware laptops, however, prioritize gaming performance first and foremost. The video cards are more powerful, the proprietary “Cryo-Tech” cooling is more effective at cooling the components, and the main tradeoff is s slightly heftier 5.5lb weight.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 3080 PC for $1889.99
This is the lowest priced Alienware RTX 3080 gaming PC at the moment, and yet it’s still upgraded with some really nice specs. Instead of an Ryzen 7, this PC includes a liquid cooled AMD Ryzen 9 5900 CPU, one of the best processors you can get for both gaming and workstation tasks. The RTX 3080 is significantly more powerful than the previous generation’s best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best video card to get for 4K gaming without spending an egregious sum of money.
Samsung CRG9 49″ Gaming Monitor for $699.99
Need to add $14.99 Gamestop Pro membership to cart
The Samsung CRG9 shares many of the same features of the Odyssey G9 at a substantially lower price point. Like the G9, it boasts the same 49″ panel size, the same 5140×1440 DQHD resolution, and the same HDR1000 quantum dot (QLED) panel with 95% DCI-P3 color space. Unlike the G9, however, the CRG9 has a 120Hz refresh rate and it’s not NVIDIA certified G-SYNC compatible. The latter is really a moot point, though, because even though it’s not officially G-Sync compatible, plenty of people have reported that this monitor works perfectly well with G-SYNC enabled.
Meta Quest 2 VR Headset (Refurb with Warranty)
Meta (formerly Oculus) is offering a manufacturer refurbished Meta Quest 2 128GB VR headset for $50 off the MSRP of buying a new Quest 2. These refurbished units have been inspected, cleaned, and tested to function like a brand new unit, and even includes the original packaging. You get a 30-day return policy and a 6-month warranty directly from Meta. Since Quest 2 discounts are hard to come by (because the price is already unbeatable compared to other VR headsets), this is the best deal you’re going to get.
Seagate Firecuda 8TB RGB Gaming Hub
The Seagate Firecuda 8TB Gaming Hub is a USB 3.2 external desktop hard drive with fancy Razer Chroma-compatible RGB accent lighting. It normally retails for over $200, but Gamestop has far and away the lowest price at only $138.99 (Amazon has it for $199). Considering the fact that a regular ol’ non-RGB 8TB external hard drive usually costs more than this hard drive, you can see why it’s a pretty sweet deal.
XPG ATOM 1TB M.2 SSD with Heatsink
The XPG ATOM boasts read speeds of up to 5,000MB/s. That’s just slightly below the PS5’s read speed recommendation of 5,500MB/s. It’s doubtful that you’ll notice the performance difference. It will definitely work in your PS5 since it meets all other necessary requirements and it even includes a thin aluminum heatspreader that won’t interfere with the PS5 top lid.
10% Off $50 Nintendo eShop Gift Card
Save $5 off any game at the eShop with this digital gift card from Amazon. Use it to pick up rarely discounted favorites like Super Smash Bros Ultimate or Metroid Dread, recent new releases like Kirby and the Forgotten Land or Triangle Strategy, or DLC like the new one for Animal Crossing: New Horizon. Or you can just hold onto the card and use it during the next eShop sale, since it stacks with instant discounts.
HyperX Cloud Alpha S Wired Gaming Headset
The HyperX Cloud Alpha S normally retails for $129.99, but today you can get it for over 50% off at Amazon. Since it’s wired, it is compatible with all consoles, including the PS5 and Xbox Series X, as well as your gaming PC. It does a great job of simulating 7.1ch surround sound, and the audio quality is good thanks to its dual-chambered driver design. The aluminum frame adds to its durability and the breathable leatherette ear cushions are perfect for long gaming marathons.
2021 Apple MacBook Pro 14″ M1 Pro Laptop
Amazon is offering the lowest price we’ve ever seen on the 2021 Apple MacBook Pro 14″ laptop equipped with the new powerful Apple M1 Pro chip and a gorgoues 14.2″ Liquid Retina XDR display. The Apple M1 chip is a bona fide speed demon that offers better performance while generating less heat and consuming less power than any of the Intel chips that Apple used in previous models, as well as the previous M1 chip. It’s paired with a 14-core GPU, 16GB RAM, and 512GB SSD.
Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing Console with Game
This is a convenient bundle for those who want the Nintendo Switch Animal Crossing themed gaming console, the Animal Crossing: New Horizons game, and the official Animal Crossing Aloha Edition carrying case. It’s also cheaper than buying each item separately (the game retails for $60 and the case retails for $25). This themed Switch console is, in my opinion, the best looking and most thought out design of the themed Switch consoles. In addition to the exclusive pastel blue and green Joy-Con controllers, both the Switch dock and the rear of the Switch chassis features cute Animal Crossing designs.
Xbox Series S Console with 2nd Controller
Dell is offering the Xbox Series S gaming console (which comes with one wireless controller) bundled with a second Xbox wireless controller for only $317.99. That’s basically paying $18 for that second controller. Considering the Robot White controller normally runs about $60, that’s a great deal if you were planning to pick up a second controller anyways.
Lenovo Legion RTX 30 Series Gaming PCs in Stock
Extra 15% off with Lenovo coupon code: LEGIONDT15
The Lenovo Legion gaming desktops are often very highly rated for their build quality. People generally like the fact that Lenovo does not use proprietary components in their rigs, so future upgradeability is much easier done here than in other prebuilt PCs. Lenovo gaming rigs generally also utilize solid cooling, especially for the CPU, even if you opt for the base models. Lenovo gaming PCs are usually very expensive, although seasonal discounts signficantly drop the price. Because of their popularity, they’re also usually very difficult to find in stock.
Alienware m15 15″ RTX 3050 Ti Gaming Laptop
This is the lowest price you’re gonna get for an Alienware gaming laptop. This is an RTX 3050 Ti with 90W TDP (80W + 10W dynamic boost). The RTX 3050 Ti is a little bit more powerful than the previous generation’s GTX 1660 Ti, plus it offers DLSS support. It should handle 1080p gaming at high settings on most games without a hitch.
48″ and 55″ LG C1 4K OLED Smart Gaming TVs
Supports 4K @ 120Hz for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X gamers
This is the lowest price we’ve seen for both the 48″ and 55″ LG C1 OLED TVs. If money isn’t an object, OLED TVs are considered the best TVs you can buy right now. Compared to traditional LED LCD TVs, they offer better image quality, deeper blacks, better contrast ratio, wider color gamut, and super fast response times. They excel at both gaming and viewing 4K HDR content. In terms of general usability, they consume less power and they’re very thin and sit flusher against the wall. Amongst OLED TVs, the LG C1 is oft considered the flag bearer; it’s the one TV that all other OLED TVs are compared against. The LG OLED TV boasts several generations of optimizations under its belt and the latest C1 model is future proofed with technology like HDMI 2.1 (4K @ 120Hz), variable refresh rate, G-SYNC, the newest LG A9 Gen4 processor and a revamped webOS smart TV interface.
New Apple AirPods Pro Noise-Cancelling Earbuds
This is the newest generation model with the MagSafe compatible wireless charger. The AirPods Pro is considered one of the best noise-cancelling in-ear headphones you can get, especially for under $200. The noise cancellation is considered to be even better than the Bose Quietcomfort because of the natural noise isolating design of the in-ear earbuds. If you don’t care much for the AirPod Pro’s noise cancelling feature and you’re on a budget, the new 3rd gen Apple AirPods 3 with MagSafe compatible charging case is also on sale today. And even that’s still a bit too much of an overspend for you, the AirPods 2 with wired charging case is on sale for under $100.
Apple Watch Series 7 and SE
The Series 7 is Apple’s latest and greatest watch. Today, both the 41mm and 45mm models are heavily discounted on Amazon (cheaper than Black Friday). The biggest upgrade the Series 7 has over the Series 6 is the display. It has the same always-on Retina display, but it’s 20% bigger and features a more crack-resistant front crystal screen. It also adds on even more health-related features, like measuring your blood oxygen or taking an ECG. If the Apple Watch Series 7 is out of your budget and you don’t think you’d make much use out of the health features, the newest Apple Watch SE is also on sale today at the lowest price ever. This affordable smartwatch features a Retina OLED display, Aple S5 chip, optical heart rate sensor, fall detection, and an always-on altimeter.
Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED Gaming Monitor
The first QD-OLED panel on the market
After much anticipation, Dell is now offering the Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED gaming monitor for $1299.99 on its website. Although by no means inexpensive, this is the first ever QD-OLED monitor we’ve seen and thus the price point is surprisingly reasonable for the new tech. Undoubtedly due to the hype, it has been going in and out of stock throughout the day, so don’t hesitate if you’ve been waiting for this release. If you don’t put your order in now, you’ll have to wait a very, very long time to receive it; estimated ship date has already been pushed back to June.
HP Victus RTX 3060 Ti Gaming PC for $975
This is far and away the lowest price we have ever seen for a prebuilt gaming PC equipped with an RTX 3060 Ti GPU. Once you hit the product page, you’ll have to select “RTX 3060” for $250 and a “500W Power Supply) for $50. You can buy the system as is, or you can choose to add a few more choice upgrades. You certainly have leeway with this super cheap price.
ASUS Vivobook 14″ Laptop w/ WQXGA+ OLED Display
This ASUS Vivobook laptop has one of the best laptop displays we’ve seen, especially at this really low price. The 14″ OLED display sports a 16:10 WGXGA+ (2880×1800) resolution with a 100% DCI-P3 color range and Pantone color calibration. It’s paired with an Intel Core i5 processor, Intel Iris Xe graphics, 8GB RAM, and 256GB SSD. It even has a Thunderbolt 4 port.
