If you want to upgrade your gaming machine but you don’t need the portability from gaming laptop deals, then you should be looking at gaming PC deals.

For example, Dell is currently selling the Alienware Aurora R12 Gaming Desktop at $600 off, which brings its price down to $1,400 from its original price of $2,000.

The gaming PC also features a 1TB SSD, which should provide enough storage to install multiple games at a time with all their necessary updates.

The Alienware Aurora R12 Gaming Desktop runs on Windows 11 Home out of the box, so you can start installing or downloading games as soon as you set it up. The gaming PC features a thermal design that includes four 10mm copper heat pipes with integrated vapor chambers, while the Legend industrial design ensures fluid and efficient airflow, so even if you don’t realize that you’ve been playing for hours, the machine will still be working at peak performance with no chance of overheating.

The 5 best gaming laptop deals in Dell’s 4th of July sale
The Dell G15 gaming laptop powered by AMD Ryzen.

While gaming desktops are great, they don't have the same excellent portability as gaming laptops. So, if you've always wanted one of the latter, then these 4th of July sales are the perfect opportunity to grab yourself one. Of course, if you do want to go for a more traditional desktop option that's still from Dell, then these Alienware 4th of July deals are worth taking a look at, while our roundup of the best gaming laptop 4th of July deals should give you a few more options on top of that.
G15 Gaming Laptop -- $1,000, was $1,150

The Dell G15 is probably one of the most popular gaming laptops on the market when it comes to budget-oriented options. In this configuration, you get a solid RTX 406o, which should easily handle the FHD resolution and 165Hz refresh rate of the monitor with minimal graphical compromises. The Intel Core i7-13650HX is also a reasonably powerful CPU that will handle most games just fine, and productivity tasks should be a relative breeze to do on the G15. Similarly, the 16GB of DDR5 RAM means you get some good speed and capacity for having apps and tabs open, while the 1TB SSD is a good start and will probably be enough for a year or so of gaming before you may have to start deleting games or thinking of expansion with an external hard drive deal.
