Dell often runs price cuts across its gaming machine ranges, and if you're ever after a cheap gaming PC or gaming laptop sale, this can be a good place to begin your search. However, the current Alienware discounts you can currently get over at Dell (opens in new tab) are very tempting indeed. A saving of $500 off an incredibly powerful laptop? Yes, please. What about $150 off a quality gaming PC? Well then, read on...

We have started off big with a premium laptop that has a hefty price tag, but the quality and value on offer are still present. The Alienware m15 laptops are easy to recommend and are definitely up there when it comes to the best gaming laptops (opens in new tab) in our opinion thanks to their premium composition, design, and performance. The one on offer today is supremely well-specced and has a saving of $350 (opens in new tab).

Elsewhere, the Alienware Aurora R8 desktop (opens in new tab) impresses for value alone and will offer a great-quality build to experience games with. Despite it being replaced by the R9 desktop (read more in our Alienware R9 review (opens in new tab)), this is still one of the best gaming PCs (opens in new tab) you can get right now.

The last two models are R1 laptops, but each one offers different packages, the most immediate difference being size: one is a 17-inch behemoth (opens in new tab) and one is the standard 15.6-inches (opens in new tab). They offer savings of $345 and $500 respectively, and the composition of both is incredibly tasty - make no bones about it, these will chew through any game you throw at them. Despite being the ever-so-slightly-older models, these are still great value offerings and I would jump on them myself if I could.

The slightly bigger savings to be had are on the slightly older models, we'll admit, but that's not to say you'll be left behind or scrabbling around on a sub-par machine: these are still some of the best in the business.

Alienware Aurora R8 gaming PC | i5-9400 CPU | GTX 1660Ti GPU | 16GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $1,150 $999.99 at Dell (opens in new tab)
While a little older, the R8s are still excellent gaming PCs. This is a great price for an Alienware machine at the just-below-ray-tracing level. It'll still crunch through anything that you throw at it and you'll have the ability to tinker with it over time too.

It's always a pleasure to consider a bigger laptop than the usual size, and getting a 17-inch machine is an incredible purchase to make. This has some really solid specs too and will have you capable of enjoying ray-tracing gaming immediately.

While slightly smaller, this variant of the laptop will get you a graphics card that's a step up and a more compact SSD. It's all swings and roundabouts with gaming laptops but this is an excellent configuration for a 15.6 Alienware beast.
