Cyber Monday deals are just picking up steam, and Alienware laptops always makes our shortlist of the best gaming laptops. The end result? Plenty of tip-top gaming rigs on sale this week that we can personally recommend.
For example, you'll find the Core i7-equipped Alienware m16 on sale for $1,399 at Best Buy (down from $1,999.) That adds up to an extra $600 in savings — enough green for some sweet gaming deals or PC accessories to complement your new rig. (You'll find an AMD Ryzen 9-powered config of the Alienware m16 on Dell's website for the same price.)
Today's best Alienware m16 deal
Features: 16-inch QHD+ (2560 x 1600) 165Hz display, 13th Gen Intel Core i7 CPU, 16GB of RAM, Nvidia GeForce RTX 4070 GPU and 1TB SSD. It also has plenty of ports, including three Type-A USB 3.2 ports, two Type-C ports with Thunderbolt 4, one Type-C port without Thunderbolt 4, one HDMI 2.1 port, one Mini Display Port, a headset jack and a microSD card slot.
Release date: Q1 2023
Price history: When the Alienware m16 was announced earlier this year, the company said their premium configurations would launch at $3,099, with future configs starting at $2,149. The configuration in this deal is on sale for $1,399, which is a sizeable price drop overall.
Reviews: We haven't gotten the chance to test drive the Alienware m16 just yet, but based on our experience with the Alienware m17 R4 (which we gave 4.5 stars and an Editor's Choice award) — not to mention Alienware laptops in general — we have a good feeling about this config, and so do the editors from our sister sites. T3 gave this laptop a Platinum Award-winning 5 stars in their full review, and TechRadar gave it 4 stars.
Buy if: You want best-in-class gaming performance, a stunning 16-inch display, and a unique chassis design.
Don't buy if: You're in the market for a cheaper gaming laptop; you don't have to break the bank just to break into PC gaming, after all.
