With such a massive amount of products to pick from, Dell has pretty much anything you could want when it comes to computing, from gaming laptops, gaming PCs, headsets, and even gaming chairs, so you have a ton of options. That said, Alienware is the premium brand of Dell, and while it is some of the best stuff on the market, it’s also quite expensive, which is why we’ve collected a few of our favorite deals below. That said, if you can’t quite find what you’re looking for below, it’s also worth checking out some of these other gaming laptop deals and gaming PC deals, too.

If you really value an incredibly fast refresh rate for something like competitive esports, then the aptly named Alienware AW2524H is what you’re looking for. It can do an incredible 500Hz refresh rate, which we’re not even sure is possible without having an RTX 4090 and bumping all the graphical specs and resolution as low as they can go. That probably is the case given it’s a smaller 25-inch screen where a lower resolution doesn’t matter as much,

This Alienware 14-inch gaming laptop deal cuts the price by $600
Forza Horizon 5 running on the Alienware x14 R2.

While there is a lot of interest in larger gaming laptops that come in 17-inch and 18-inch sizes, for many, having a smaller laptop is much better, especially if they are constantly on the move and don't want to be lugging around something massive. That's where the Alienware x14 R2 comes in quite handy; it's a small laptop that's slim enough to fit into pretty much any bag so that you can travel and move around without having to purchase a specific backpack or messenger bag to fit something bigger. Of course, being Alienware, its quite expensive, but luckily you can grab yourself the Alienware X14 R2 directly from Dell for just $1,400 rather than the usual $2,000.

Why you should buy the Alienware x14 R2
Probably one of the most important parts of any gaming laptop is the GPU under the hood, and in this case the Alienware x14 R2 has a relatively solid RTX 4060. That's a great card for 2K gaming at around 60-70fps, and while you probably won't be able to have the game in ultra graphical settings, you'll get somewhere between medium and high. Even so, it's a great option for those who prefer more casual or indie games, or even free-to-play games like Rocket League and League of Legends, since these games tend to be better optimized for more hardware than just the high-end stuff.
