Deal | RTX 30-series laptops Dell XPS 17 and Alienware M15 R4 available with US$500 to over US$1,000 in savings
GeForce RTX 30-series desktop graphics cards may be hard to find at a reasonable price at the present but mobile gamers have plenty of choice in the laptop world – and with savings to boot. Dell has numerous SKUs with RTX 30-series laptop GPUs inside them just waiting to be snapped up by savvy shoppers. While the Alienware M15 R4 laptop is saddled with an 8-core Intel chip from the Comet Lake series, the Dell XPS 17 can wow with an Ampere/Tiger Lake combination. There is even a coupon code available that applies to either laptop for an additional discount (see below).
First off is the mighty Alienware M15 R4. Dell has this no-nonsense gaming laptop listed with an estimated value of US$3,049.99 but has slashed that figure by US$1,150 to US$1,899.99. For that amount, buyers will get an RTX 3070 GPU paired up with an Intel Core i9-10980HK for starters. 32 GB of RAM (DDR4 @2,933 MHz) is onboard as is a 1 TB SSD. As for the all-important display, this M15 R4 laptop has a 15.6-inch FHD screen that supports a 300 Hz refresh rate. For those who prefer an AMD-based option, there are some good deals (up to US$450 off) to be found on Ryzen 7 5800H-powered M15 R5 models too.
However, for something with a larger screen and with typical XPS sophistication, the Dell XPS 17 with RTX 3060 (70 W) and i9-11900H is hard to beat. This is especially so when you consider the estimated value is US$2,649.99 but the laptop is currently listed at US$2,149.99. Along with that US$500 saving, if you use the coupon code 50OFF699 you will get a further US$50 discount (this also works for the Alienware M15 R4 above). The 17-inch XPS 9710 (16 GB RAM, FHD+) can be configured with up to 64 GB RAM and upgraded from an FHD+ (1920x1200) or UHD+ (3840x2400) panel, depending on how much you want to spend.
