The RTX 4080-powered gaming laptop also comes with a 240Hz QHD display as well as a spacious 1TB SSD. Thanks to a coupon code at Dell's official online shop, the Alienware x16 is currently on sale for its lowest price thus far.

In less than a week, many well-known gaming laptop manufacturers will probably introduce their latest and probably very expensive machines at CES 2024 in Las Vegas. Therefore, impatient gamers who are looking for big savings might want to take advantage of some considerable discounts on already available high-end notebooks, such as the RTX 4080-equipped Alienware x16.

More specifically, Alienware's parent company Dell is currently selling the x16 gaming laptop at a steep discount of 32 percent or $1,050 relative to the machine's official list price. This deal is for the high-end configuration with an Intel Core i9-13900HK, soldered 32GB of LPDDR5 memory as well as the aforementioned Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 dGPU. Furthermore, the Alienware x16 Gen 1 sports 1TB and a fast 240Hz IPS display with a QHD resolution of 2560 by 1600 and full coverage of the DCI-P3 color space. Bargain hunters will have to apply the 10% newsletter coupon, which can be requested via this link.

We reviewed this exact model variant of the Alienware x16 R1 last year, and prospective buyers of this impressive gaming notebook should also check out our review video on YouTube. We found that the 16-inch laptop offers a lot of performance considering its relatively thin chassis. Furthermore, we praised the well-calibrated QHD panel and mechanical keyboard, but we noted that the port placement is not ideal and that Dell does not offer any OLED or 4K options for fans of higher-resolution gaming. Overall, this deal is worth consideration for demanding gamers who have a budget of more than $2,000 and are not particularly interested in the updated but pricey machines that will likely be announced in just a few days times.
