Intel announces Intel Arc dGPU for Alienware x17 laptop.

One of the best gaming laptops of all time, the Alienware x17 R2, just got a ridiculous price cut at Dell. You can grab the powerful laptop at a $950 discount today, which brings the price down to $2,200. The RTX 3080 in there is what helps this beast of a machine compete with the best consoles on the market. If that’s the kind of oomph you’re looking for, and you’re will to pay $2K but not $3K, this is the gaming laptop deal for you.

Why you should buy the Alienware x17 R2

When we first reviewed the Alienware x17 R2 it was new, fresh, and expensive. As the first laptop with a 480Hz display, it was labelled as “crazy” and “absurd.” It was power so overwhelming even the most challenging games (to run) had no difficulties with it. As a laptop that had the power to play Cyberpunk 2077 at the highest quality preset, the Alienware x17 R2 was nothing short of intense. Its RTX 3080 being one of the best graphics cards of the day, stuffed in a laptop, was the icing on the “crazy” cake.

Now, less than a year later from that initial release, the Alienware x17 R2 still feels new and fresh. But with just a few months after release, the price is already starting to slide. What once was for those that “have the money to spend for a high-end spec” is becoming more affordable for the rest of us. The 12th Gen i9 processor, 16 GB memory, and 512GB SSD hard drive, 17.9-inch screen, and mechanical keyboard quality input panel are finally accessible.

If this sounds interesting, follow the button below to get your chance at having an Alienware x17 R2 of your own, with all of the crazy power but none of the crazy price. Remember, it is $950 down from its typical price of $3,150. That makes for a total of $2,200. Also remember that this laptop deal sells out. Fast! Missed it or just want to shop around for a moment?
