The stunning Alienware m16 is one of the most alluring gaming laptops in the sub-$2,000 price segment as Dell has put the RTX 4080 gaming laptop with the AMD Ryzen 9 7845HX back on sale for $1,000 off MSRP.

Alienware gaming notebooks are not exactly known for their ground-breaking price performance ratio. However, thanks to steep discounts at Dell's official online store, the Ryzen 9-equipped Alienware m16 has once again turned into a bargain for high-end gamers who are in the market for an RTX 4080 laptop.

Similar to a popular deal from last month, the Alienware m16 R1 configuration with the AMD Ryzen 9 7845HX and 32GB RAM can now be ordered with a steep discount of $1,000 or 36 percent compared to the official list price by using the coupon code "10AMD".

This huge markdown results in a sale price of $1,799 including free shipping at Dell, which is the lowest price yet for this Alienware m16 SKU that further sports the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080 and a quick QHD IPS screen with 240Hz and 100% DCI-P3.

Although these technical specifications look great on paper, gamers who are interested in this 16-inch laptop should take a moment to read through our detailed review of the Alienware m16. We found that both the Ryzen 9 and RTX 4080 perform very well thanks to the notebook's effective cooling system.Moreover, the aforementioned QHD display looks great and has very fast response times, which make the Alienware m16 perfect for fast-paced shooters.

On the negative side, the Alienware m16 is a very chunky device with short battery runtimes, which means that this RTX 4080 notebook is not a suitable choice for gamers who have to carry around their laptop on a regular basis. Instead, this group of buyers should take a look at an ongoing deal for the Asus ROG Zephyrus G16.

Last but not least, we also criticized the lacking USB 4 and G-Sync support. Nevertheless, the Ryzen 9-equipped Alienware m16 R1 is a well-made 16-inch machine that might be one of the most appealing offerings in the sub-$2,000 price range right now.
