On the cutting edge of dedicated gaming PC hardware for 20 years, Alienware is marking the start of its third decade in the business by shining a light on some great offers on its super-spec’d gaming PCs and laptops. 

From upgradeable desktops to LAN-party ready laptops that you can throw into a backpack for some on-the-go gaming, you don’t need to break the bank to get the FPS count you deserve either, with Alienware offering options on its previous generation of systems that even give you change from £1,000.  

 Out of this world 

Announced at CES, the Alienware 15 and Alienware 17 laptops have recently been refreshed with Intel’s 7th generation processors - but you can bag a bargain by looking at the incredible offers Alienware has on their predecessors.

Take the Alienware 15 laptop, currently up for sale at just £999 as part of Alienware’s wallet-soothing promotions. With a 15.6-inch display, it’s powered by a speedy GeForce GTX 965M graphics chip with 2GB of GDDR5 video memory, along with 8GB of RAM and a 6th gen Intel Core i5 processor. Plenty of power to wipe the floor with your MOBA competition. 

Need a little more screen to stare at the lush vistas of The Witcher 3? The Alienware 17, with its 17.3-inch screen fits the bill nicely, squeezing in an Intel Core i7 processor alongside an Nvidia GeForce GTX 970M graphics card. It’s down to just £1,149

And if you’ll spare no expense to run Battlefield 1 with all the bells and whistles pushed to their max settings? Check out the beastly Alienware Aurora gaming desktop. At £1,829, it’s a supremely powerful machine, powered by Nvidia’s ferocious GeForce GTX 1080 graphics card and and an Intel Core i7 processor. 

All come pre-installed with Microsoft’s Windows 10 Home operating system, the most gamer-friendly version of the popular OS there’s ever been. 

Whatever your gaming need, Alienware has a frag-filled future awaiting you. Here’s to another 20 years of superior PC gaming.
