Deal | Save a crazy US$1,450 on an Alienware 17 R5 with a Core i9-8950HK, a GeForce GTX 1080 and 32 GB of RAM
Alienware and Dell laptop deals are aplenty, but few offer as hefty of a discount like the one that B&H is currently running. The retailer is selling the flagship model of the Alienware 17 R5 for a mere US$2,199. We say mere, as it retails for US$3,649, so you would be saving US$1,450.
The Core i7-8750H and GeForce GTX 1070 model scored 87% in our review unit last year, crushing any game that we threw at it in the process. The SKU on offer at B&H comes with the even more powerful Core i9-8950HK and GeForce GTX 1080 though, which should have no problem with taking full advantage of the R5's 1440p and 120 Hz display.
The SKU in question also comes with Windows 10 Home 64-Bit installed along with 32 GB of dual-channel DDR4 RAM running at 2,666 MHz. Additionally, the laptop has a 256 GB M.2 PCIe SSD and a 1 TB 7,200 RPM HDD for storing countless games. Finally, Alienware has equipped the R5 with a plentiful 99 Wh battery, although at 4.4 kg (9.74 lbs) the laptop is better suited being tethered to a desk.
The offer is not time sensitive, but B&H does stress that it has limited stock. Act fast if you want this one.
