Although we didn't test this R5 model, in our Alienware m15 R4 review, we were floored by its awesome performance and graphics. We gave it an overall rating of 4 out of 5 stars and our Editor's Choice award stamp of approval. 

We expect the laptop in this deal to be on par with its predecessor performance-wise. Aesthetically, the m15 R5 sports Alienware's new Legend industrial design with thin display bezels. With a weight of 5.3 pounds and measuring 14 x 10.7 x 0.8 -inches, it's on par with the m15 R4 (5.3 pounds, 14.2 x 10.9 x 0.7~0.8 inches).

Alienware laptop deals are only as good as stock permits, so we recommend you act fast.
