Top 5 Dell Gaming Deals: Save $400 on a 1080p Gaming Laptop

Published

If your New Year's resolution is 2560x1440, then we've rounded up five of the past week's best gaming PC deals (and one fancy monitor) just for you. That includes a G5 gaming laptop that packs a punch, and a couple of Alienware brutes for the dedicated desk-bound gamers.


Dell G5 15 SE Coffee Lake i7 15.6" 1080p Gaming Laptop
Store: Dell Home
Price: $881.99 EXPIRED
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $387
Expiration: January 23

This G5 laptop doesn't have top-of-the-line specs in any area, but its a great all-rounder. It combines a zippy NVMe boot drive with a larger mechanical drive, so you can balance your performance and storage on a per-game basis, and also offers 16GB RAM, which should be more than enough to see you through all but the most dedicated Chrome tabbing adventures. The 4GB video card won't be pushing PS5-level pixels, but it's no slouch either.

Full features include a 9th-gen. Intel Core i7-9750H 2.6GHz Coffee Lake 6-core processor, 15.6" 1920x1080 (1080p) IPS LCD, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD, 1TB hard drive, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 4GB graphics card, and Windows 10 Home 64-bit.



Alienware Aurora Ryzen 7 8-Core Gaming Desktop
Store: Dell Home
Price: $1272.99 via code "100OFF999" EXPIRED
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $227
Expiration: January 23

If you're looking for an abandoned space obelisk that also plays video games, this Alienware behemoth should shape up nicely. An enormous 512GB NVMe SSD pairs with an 8GB Radeon video card that TechRadar said offered "excellent 1440p gaming performance". We may not understand why it looks the way it does, but we understand its insides specifically contain an AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6GHz 8-core processor, 16GB RAM, 512GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSD, AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB graphics card, and Windows 10 Home 64-bit.



Dell 27" S2719DGF 1440p FreeSync LED Monitor
Store: Dell Home
Price: $284.99 EXPIRED
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $29
Expiration: January 23

Tom's Hardware said the Dell S2719DGF was "one of the best-looking TN screens we've ever seen", and loved its high refresh rate and FreeSync adaptive sync. Adaptive sync is, of course, one of the best upgrades you can grant your gaming rig, eliminating all traces of nasty screen tear, and freeing you up to squeeze a little extra gaming juice out of your hardware. (Gross.) Best of all, the monitor is now at the best price we've ever seen. It features a 2560x1440 (1440p) native resolution, two HDMI inputs, DisplayPort, and four USB 3.0 ports.



Dell Alienware Aurora Core i5 6-Core Gaming PC
Store: Dell Home
Price: $734.99 via code "50OFF499" EXPIRED
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $115
Expiration: January 23

If you like the intergalactic artifact feel of the Alienware desktop above, but not the feel of its price tag, you can get this more moderately-priced gaming machine at $115 off its list price instead. It features what Dell label "Legend Industrial Design" – a missed opportunity to swap "Industrial" for "Engineering", and shorten it to the very apt "LED", in our opinion. This PC packs a 9th-generation Intel Core i5-9400 2.9GHz Coffee Lake 6-core processor, 8GB RAM, 1TB hard drive, Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650 4GB graphics card, and Windows 10 Home 64-bit.



Dell XPS Special Edition 8930 9th-Gen i5 PC with 8GB GPU
Store: Dell Home
Price: $1175.99 via code "100OFF999" EXPIRED
Shipping: Free shipping
Lowest By: $224
Expiration: January 23

If you want the gaming heft, but in a form factor you wouldn't necessarily hide from a Tinder date, this XPS desktop might be the answer. Its specs are a mish-mash of everything we've seen above – 16GB RAM, an NVMe SSD (although only 256GB this time!), and a very-slightly-different Radeon 8GB video card. (Or put more simply, still a very capable gaming machine, without the seemingly synonymous aesthetic choices.) The exact specs: a 9th-generation Intel Core i5-9400 2.9GHz Coffee Lake 6-core processor, 16GB RAM, 256GB M.2 NVMe SSD, 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive, AMD Radeon RX 5700 8GB graphics card, and Windows 10 Home 64-bit.
