After Prime Day but before the Black Friday deals kick in, it's a sort of limbo period for gaming laptops deals traditionally. However, this Alienware m15 laptop, complete with RTX 2080 graphics card and i9-9980HK processor, has had a massive $1,250 slashed off its list price (opens in new tab). It's one of the best gaming laptops around, and one of the best deals on a powerful laptop we've seen all year.

$3,250$1,999.99 at Dell (opens in new tab)
The Alienware machines of the past couple of years have been exquisite in every way and this one is absolutely no different. This 15.6-inch laptop has a sleek and slim design, brilliant build quality, and some beastly specs under the hood: an Intel i9-9980HK processor, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD, and that monstrous RTX 2080 graphics card.
The laptop 'only' has a standard HD (1080p) display, which is literally fine, but what this does mean is that you'll be able to enjoy some incredibly smooth gaming with the hardware powering it. If your priority is power and performance then this laptop is a terrific choice for you, offering a great gaming experience that would certainly rival some of the best gaming PCs.
While it might not be exactly the bargain basement price that the words 'cheap Alienware laptops' conjure up, it is genuinely the best way to reach such a position, based on performance and power to bucks. The ratio is strongly in your favor in this one.
