In celebration of the 4th of July weekend, Dell will be discounting its latest generation Alienware m15 M5 gaming laptop by at least two- to three-hundred dollars for a limited time. The final retail price should prove attractive to many gamers given that the m15 R5 is an upper mid-range model packed almost to the brim with auxiliary features.

The most notable aspects of the deal are the Zen 3 Ryzen 7 5800H CPU, GeForce RTX 3060 GPU, and 165 Hz IPS display. Such a combination would typically retail for much more or come with slower native refresh rates or Intel 10th gen CPUs.

Some drawbacks to keep in mind are the small 256 GB NVMe SSD and soldered non-upgradeable RAM. Per-key RGB lighting will also cost an additional $98 USD over the base four-zone lighting feature. Users should take note that this m15 R5 is likely on sale in order to make room for the newer and sleeker Alienware X15 series that launched just a few weeks ago.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
