Gamers hunting for a good deal on Dell's G15 or Alienware gaming laptops are in luck. Amazon is slashing up to $600 off select machines, including the Alienware X16 gaming laptop with a Core i9 CPU, 32 GB of RAM, and an Nvidia RTX 4080 GPU.

Alienware is known for making well-built and high-end gaming laptops, but the machines typically cost a pretty penny. However, Amazon is running a deal on Alienware laptops (and a Dell gaming laptop) that shaves up to 23% off various models. 

 Perhaps the most enticing is the Alienware X16 R1, which is discounted 20% down to $2399.97. This is $600 lower than the laptop's MSRP of $2999.97. The X16 R1 sports an Intel Core i9-13900HK, 32 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, a 1 TB NVMe SSD, and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080. The screen is a 16-inch QHD+ (2560x1600) panel with a 240 Hz refresh rate, which takes advantage of the high framerates pumped out by the RTX 4080. In our review, we highlighted the good low-profile mechanical keyboard and solid performance. However, we pointed out that the power adapter is necessary when using the machine away from home as the X16 R1's battery life is very short, managing only 2.5 hours in our WiFi battery test. 

On the other end of the budget spectrum is Dell's G15 5535 laptop, which is discounted 15% to $849.97. The G15 5535 has an AMD Ryzen 7 7840HS, and Nvidia GeForce RTX 4060, 16 GB of DDR5 RAM, and a 512 GB SSD. The display is a 15.6-inch Full HD (1920x1080) screen with a 165 Hz refresh rate, something that's not always found at this price point. The G15 5535 is fairly thick for a laptop, but it covers all the basics and has good specs for the price.

Also on sale today are the Alienware M15 R7 (AMD Ryzen 9 6900HX, Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, 32GB DDR5 RAM, 1TB SSD, QHD [2560x1440] 240 Hz display) for $1649.97, Alienware M18 (Intel Core i7-13700HX, Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070, 16 GB DDR5 RAM, 1 TB SSD, 18-inch QHD+ 165 Hz screen) for $1999.97, and Alienware M18 AMD (AMD Ryzen 9 7845HX, Nvidia GeForce RTX 4080, 32GB DDR5 RAM, 1TB SSD, 18-inch FHD+ [1920x1200] 480 Hz display) for $2199.97.
