Two Alienware 15 R3 Gaming Laptops Are Available for a Discounted Price Tag
If you haven’t purchased a gaming notebook right now, then you should check out this deal at Newegg because it involves two Dell’s Alienware notebooks. You should be informed that both of these notebooks are not running NVIDIA’s GTX 900m series of chips, but the GTX 1000 series instead and the fact that they are available to purchase at a discounted price tag definitely means you should give both of them at least a look.
Higher-end Alienware 15 R3 Has Been Discounted by $160 – Features a NVIDIA GTX 1060
Before we dive into the specifications, we’d like to state that both of these machines are running Skylake processors and provide support for both Thunderbolt 3 and Alienware Graphics Amplifier ports, meaning that if you cannot get your hands on the Alienware Graphics Amplifier then you can always purchase a different eGPU chassis and connect the Alienware 15 R3 to that using the Thunderbolt 3 connection. Having a choice is always a great thing, and you have the option to purchase either one of the two models (hardware specifications and price tag have been detailed):
- i5-6300HQ (2.30GHz) + 8GB DDR4 RAM + GTX 1060 6GB video memory + 1TB hard drive + FHD display = $1,269 ($130 discount)
- i7-6700HQ (2.30GHz) + 16GB DDR4 RAM + GTX 1060 6GB video memory + 128GB SSD and 1TB hard drive + FHD display = $1,539 ($160 discount)
The beefier version of the gaming laptop sounds like a much better option because you’re getting more RAM and an SSD right off the bat meaning a speedier and generally responsive machine. However, for those that can’t spend slightly more right away, you get the option of upgrading hardware later down the road because the Alienware 15 R3 definitely provides a ton of flexibility when you want to bump up the RAM, add an M.2 drive, or even change 2.5-inch drive in the machine.
We understand that Kaby Lake powered models are available to purchase right now, but we also believe that you’ll be saving more and getting your money’s worth with these models.
