The desirable Alienware x16 R1 relies on a high-end CPU-GPU pairing and has now dropped below the $2,000 mark as Dell offers massive savings of more than 40% on the RTX 4080 gaming laptop.

Just like the bulkier AMD-powered sister model that has recently received a mentionable price cut, Dell has now also put the well-performing RTX 4080 configuration of the Intel-equipped Alienware x16 on sale with a huge discount. In this particular case, the 16-inch gaming laptop also comes with a copious amount of memory and SSD storage.

More specifically, the Alienware x16 R1 with the Intel Core i9-13900HK and Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 graphics card can now be ordered for a record-low price of $1,979 instead of the regular MSRP of $3,449 at Dell's very own online store. Shoppers will have to apply the coupon code "10OFFCLEAR" at checkout in order to receive the corresponding discount.

The high-end gaming laptop is further equipped with a spacious 2TB SSD and 32GB LPDDR5 RAM, which is soldered onto the motherboard and not upgradable after purchase. The Alienware x16 also features a QHD+ IPS screen with a high refresh rate of 240Hz and 100% DCI-P3 colors, and we found that the panel is well-calibrated right out of the box.

In our in-depth review of the Alienware x16 R1, we also praised the mechanical keyboard and outstanding speakers of the Core i9 gaming laptop. On the other hand, the footprint is still pretty large for a 16-inch notebook, and we also criticized the unpractical port placement and short battery life of just 2.5 hours when browsing via WiFi. Nonetheless, the Alienware x16 is a powerhouse of an RTX 4080 gaming machine that should appeal to most gamers.
