Not everyone is the DIY type, and building your own PC is definitely not for everyone. If you're in the market for a prebuilt gaming PC, Dell is one of best brands we'd recommend. The Alienware gaming desktops offer a staggering array of options, all built into a custom chassis that's both easy on the eyes and easy on the wallet. Alienware gaming laptops in recent years have been redesigned to be thinner and lighter while still offering the same immense power under the hood.
For those of you on a budget, Dell also offers its Dell G-series gaming desktops and laptops. You still get to customize it to your heart's content, but at a much lower price point. If you're not looking for a gaming rig, the XPS laptop is perfect for the road warrior, and the Inspirons are great for students.
The reliable build quality, available inventory, frequent sales, and solid customer service are the main reasons why Dell is at the top of our buying list. Below, you'll find some of the best deals available on PCs and laptops on Dell right now.
Dell and Alienware Coupon Codes
Alienware x15 RTX 3070 Gaming Laptop for $1599.99
This might be the lowest price we've ever seen for an Alienware x15 with an RTX 3070 GPU. The Alienware x15 is a newer, thinner redesign of the m15. In fact, it's the thinnest Alienware laptop ever. Because it hasn't been around as long, it's harder to find a good deal on it. This particular config comes well equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7-11800H CPU, RTX 3070 GPU with a TDP rating of 110W (with dynamic boost), 16GB of RAM, and a 512GB SSD. There's even a coupon code that drops the price by another $100.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 3080 PC for $1799.99
The RTX 3080 is way more powerful than the previous generation's best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3090 are the only cards that are (very slightly) more powerful, but they cost hundreds of dollars more. The RTX 3080 is paired with an AMD Ryzen 7 5900 CPU, which is still one of the best processors out there, whether it be for gaming or for workstation purposes. It's been upgraded with liquid cooling as well. The rig is ready to go out of the box with 16GB of DD4-3200MHz RAM and a generously sized 1TB M.2 PCIe NVME SSD. Don't worry, even the power supply is up to snuff with an ample 1000W rating.
Alienware Aurora Ryzen 9 RTX 3080 PC for $1899.99
For only $100 more, you can upgrade that AMD Ryzen 7 CPU with 8 cores to a liquid cooled AMD Ryzen 9 5900 CPU with 12 cores.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 3060 PC for $1199.99
The RTX 3060 is no slouch; its performance is superior to the RTX 2060 SUPER and almost matches the RTX 2070 SUPER in some games. It will easily handle all of your games at up to 1440p. It's paired with a liquid cooled AMD Ryzen 7 5800X processor, 16GB of RAM, 512GB SSD, and a 1000W power supply.
Alienware Aurora R10 RTX 2080 SUPER PC for $1399
The RTX 2080 SUPER might be a generation old, but it's still a very competent video card. It compares roughly to the RTX 3060 Ti and supports both DLSS and ray tracing. It easily competes with RTX 30 series gaming PCs in the same price range. This PC also features liquid cooling for the processor and a generous 1000W power supply.
Alienware m15 R6 RTX 3060 Gaming Laptop
The RTX 3060 is more powerful than the previous generation's RTX 2070 video card (and more on par with the RTX 2070 SUPER). The RTX 3060 in the m15 R6 has a TDP rating of 125W (115W + 10W dynamic boost). That makes it more powerful than the RTX 3060 video cards found in most other gaming laptops, which usually have under a 100W TDP rating. That's a big win for this laptop considering the fact that you probably won't find a RTX 3060 laptop from any other brand for a cheaper price.
Alienware AW3423DW 34" QD-OLED Gaming Monitor
The first QD-OLED panel on the market
After much anticipation, Dell is now offering the Alienware AW3423DW 34" QD-OLED gaming monitor for $1299.99 on its website. Although by no means inexpensive, this is the first ever QD-OLED monitor we've seen and thus the price point is surprisingly reasonable for the new tech. Undoubtedly due to the hype, it has been going in and out of stock throughout the day, so don't hesitate if you've been waiting for this release. The estimated delivery date has already been extended all the way out to July.
QD-OLED technology was a big hit at this year's CES and Samsung earned the "Best of Innovation 2022" award for it. The QD OLED panel uses quantum dot technology to more efficiently produce higher peak brightness levels compared to traditional OLED TVs without losing the color accuracy and range and wide viewing angles that OLEDs are known for. Although Samsung is the one that publicized the new technology, it is Alienware that will be deputing it first to the consumer market with this AW3423DW monitor.
Alienware S5000 Gaming Chair
Factor in the gift card and you're basically paying $255. The Alienware S5000 gaming chair is produced by Vertagear and is modeled after Vertagear's best selling model, the SL-5000. This chair features a breathable PVC leather upholstery with extra dense foam padding, included neck rest and lumbar pillows, adjustable seat height, tilt, and recline (up to 140 degrees), adjustable armrests, 360-degree swivel, and 260-pound weight rating.
New 2021/2022 Alienware Aurora R13 Gaming PC
Unceremoniously dubbed the "R13", Dell's new flagship gaming PC sports a number of aesthetic, quality of life, and performance improvements over its predecessors. In terms of future proofing, the Alienware Aurora R13 is the first Alienware PC to come equipped with the newest 12th gen Intel Alder Lake processors. That's paired with a Z690 based motherboard that accepts DDR5 RAM. This proves that DDR5 RAM actually exists in the wild. Your video card options are great as well; pick your choice of RTX 30 series video card, from the RTX 3060 Ti all the way to the RTX 3090, at your expense of course.
New 2021/2022 Dell XPS Gaming PC
Until recently, Dell's only PC option that offered an Intel Alder Lake CPU, DDR5 RAM, and RTX 30 series video cards was in the form of the Alienware Aurora R13 gaming PC listed above. At a cost of about $2900 for an Intel Core i7 RTX 3080 combo, it's out of reach for many people. Now, Dell has extended similar buildout options to its new 2021-2022 Dell XPS gaming PC. Compared to the previous model, the new Dell XPS chassis is larger in volume (27L vs 19L) and provides more clearance for the CPU and GPU area for much better airflow. That's important because the new Alder Lake processors can run hot under intense loads. Like the Alienware Aurora R13, the new Dell XPS PC features a Z690 motherboard that supports the newest 12th gen Intel Alder Lake processors, DDR5 RAM, and RTX 30 series video cards.
Alienware X15 and X17 Gaming Laptops
Dell has launched two new Alienware laptops for 2021, the 15" X15 and the 17" X17. They succeed the m15 and m17 as Alienware's flagship gaming laptops. They also happen to be the thinnest Alienware laptops ever despite the fact that they're equipped with the next generation RTX 30 series video cards. In fact, they are thinner than the "ultra-thin" Razer Blade 15" laptop. The X15 model measures in at only 0.63" thin and 5.2 pounds and the X17 model is 0.84" thin and 7.05 pounds. The laptops also feature the newest Intel 11th gen H-series processors and a powerful quadruple fan active cooling system that keeps all the components nice and cool.
