Alienware 15 w/ GTX 965M for $1049
For awhile, I wasn’t a big fan of Alienware products. Their quality had been somewhat lackluster. It seems within the last couple generations that they have stepped up their quality and made their pricing much more competitive, so that they stand up against some of the higher end Asus RoG laptops. Amazon is running a pretty great deal on one right now and it’s definitely worth looking into if you’re in the market for a great mid-range machine, you should take a look.
The newest Alienware 15 is currently available for $1049 making it the cheapest way to get a high quality 15.6″ machine with an Nvidia GTX 965M, IPS display, and the best battery life available in a powerful gaming laptop.
Current specs are as follows:
- Intel i5-4210H
- 8GB RAM
- 1TB 5400RPM Hard Drive
- 15.6″ 1920×1080 IPS Display
- ~7 hour battery life
If you’re looking for a great value on a mid-range gaming laptop, this is definitely one you should be checking out. Don’t be put off by the i5, as it will not bottleneck your performance with the GTX 965, and most games do not fully utilize the additional cores of an i7. This frequently overlooked facts allows machines like this to come on sale for some great prices.
