Deal | Incredible Alienware m17 R5 offer from Dell shaves US$950.50 off from Ryzen 9 6900HX and Radeon RX 6850M XT configuration
In addition to the Alienware m15 R7 deal we reported previously, Dell has slashed the Alienware m17 R5 price by US$700 bringing the US$2,199.99 list rate down to US$1,499.99. You can take this price down further to an incredible US$1,249.99 by applying coupon codes GAMING15 and ARMMPPS at checkout (via slickdeals).
Moving on to the specifications, the Alienware m17 R5 on sale features an 8-core Ryzen 9 6900HX, an RX 6850M XT with 12 GB of VRAM, 16 GB of DDR5-4800 memory, and 1 TB of PCIe Gen 4 storage. Complementing the powerful internals is a superfast 360 Hz 17.3-inch FHD display with a 1 ms response time and support for AMD FreeSync. Other niceties include a 97 WHr battery and an AlienFx per-key RGB keyboard alongside a decent touchpad.
In our review of the Alienware m17 R5, we remarked that the laptop was well built and had good inputs. On the performance side of things, Ryzen 9 6900HX and RX 6850M XT-powered configuration, although not a chart-topper, proved to be plenty fast for gaming. For instance, the notebook pushed 126 FPS at 1080p/Ultra in Witcher 3, 86 FPS in Dying Light 2 at 1080p/High, and 87 FPS in AC: Valhalla at QHD/Ultra settings. In other words, if you are primarily an eSports player, the Alienware m17 R5 will comfortably push out >100 FPS allowing you to take full advantage of the 360 Hz panel.
All in all, the Alienware m17 R5 for US$1,249.99 is a potential bargain considering the performance on offer.
