It’s the time of year to start looking at buying gifts for the PC gamer in your life or even yourself. There’s no reason to miss out on some of the deals on offer just because presents are supposedly meant to be for other people. The good news is there are some amazing deals across the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. No matter the intended recipient, as long as they’re a PC gamer or have the desire to become one, we’ve picked out some of the best gifts they’re sure to love.
Alienware Area-51M Gaming Laptop
So perhaps, you or your “friend” isn’t a PC gamer just yet, they’re looking to get in more gaming on the go, or they just need an upgrade. Thankfully during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, you can pick up a discounted Alienware Area-51m Gaming Laptop and it’s a present anyone would love to receive. There’s some serious power packed into this bad boy with a ninth Generation Intel Core i7 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX2060 graphics card at the base model — and it can be upgraded to 2080. That’s eight cores of processing power and one of the newest and most powerful graphics cards on the market working in tandem. It also sports up to 64GB of RAM so there’s no doubt this can handle all the latest games and some. To top it all off, you can witness the glory of these games on the super fast 144Hz 17.3” FHD display. Though even when not in use, the slick design with two color options are breathtaking in and of themselves.
Dell Alienware 17 Vindicator Slim Case V2.0
Maybe they’ve already got a laptop and by some miracle it happens to be as cool as the Area-51M, or you’re looking to up the previous gift with an accessory. Then you can help them out with a sweet purpose-built case to keep it safe. It may be a cheaper option, especially during Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, while still being one of the most useful gifts a laptop gamer can have. Nothing is better than knowing your laptop has a dedicated case purposefully designed to keep it safe. However, if one thing could be it’s also knowing it will also be perfectly fine going through the airport with this checkpoint-friendly design. Why get a powerful, pricy laptop and then not put it in something worthy of protecting it?
Alienware 34 Curved Gaming Monitor: AW3418DW
The gamer in your life might be a little more stationary while they play, and there’s plenty of options for them as well. Or maybe they want to hook their laptop up to something a little bigger while they’re at home. A 34” curved gaming monitor will take care of that nicely, and what Alienware has on offer is no joke. 3440×1440 resolution at 120 Hz will give the edge in any competitive game by showing up all those little details lickety-split. The real kicker here is it’s packed with NVIDIA G-SYNC tech making it a perfect partner for those RTX cards to result in a tear-free gaming experience. Plus there’s nothing cooler than a huge curved monitor to have sitting on your gaming desk.
Alienware 55 OLED Gaming Monitor: AW5520QF
For some folks though, that might not be big enough. Introducing, the Alienware 55 OLED Gaming Monitor. This is for your serious PC Gamer who likes to sit a little further back and maybe even dabbles with consoles now and then. It is not uncommon for people to have their PCs hooked up to their TV and a huge fancy screen like this allows them to game without suffering any loss to the quality. It is a massive 4k screen so it’ll look beautiful for games, movies, binge watching, and anything else you can imagine. Where this really differs from a TV though is the 120Hz refresh rate, the AMD Radeon FreeSync tech, and the low input latency. Being a bit of a heftier purchase, picking up one of these during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales means you’ll also be saving a tonne of cash. This is what gamers dream of when they think of a perfect gaming TV and it turns out what they really wanted was a huge gaming monitor.
Alienware Wired/Wireless Gaming Mouse | AW610M
Mice area always a good choice for any brand of PC Gamer. Even if they’re rocking a laptop a good mouse can seriously up their gaming potential, especially over a trackpad. Often the hardest part about buying a gamer a mouse is whether or not they like to have the precision of wired or the freedom of wireless, and with the Alienware Wired/Wireless Gaming mouse, they don’t have to choose. This mouse boasts a high-performance polling rate of 1,000Hz and has a custom Alienware native 16,000 DPI sensor whether it’s plugged in or not, so you know they’ll be clicking plenty of heads. It will run for up to 350 hours of gameplay in between charges too. There are also up to seven programmable buttons and customizable lighting which can all be configured via Alienware Command Center software to give it the personal and professional touches of a perfect gift.
Alienware Low Profile RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard | AW510K
The other most important accessory in a PC Gamer’s life is a good keyboard, but why stop there when you can get an excellent one. The Alienware Low Profile RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard is a seriously fancy piece of kit for typing or gaming. Its low profile Cherry Red switches allow for incredibly fast, smooth, and accurate keystrokes and they’re good for over 50 million clicks. Like the mouse, it also has the ability to set your own programmable keys and RGB lighting so you know it will match whatever they already have, or you can pick up both for a bargain during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. Better yet there are a few extra little touches like USB passthrough and dedicated volume keys that just make day to day PC use a little smoother, and everyone could use that in their life.
Alienware Wireless Gaming Headset: AW988
The last key accessory is a headset that not only provides excellent sound but can also go the distance for long gaming sessions. This means it has to be comfortable, and also provide the battery life to play as long as you want. This is why the Alienware Wireless Gaming Headset is such a great choice. The battery can go for up to 15 hours while still being lightweight and comfortable and if you do go even longer, you can always plug it in while you play. There’s a 40-foot range on the 2.4Gz lag free wireless connection so it’s perfect for when you want to get up for a snack but can’t miss a moment and the mic is unidirectional and noise cancelling for your teammates benefit. It is also made for audiophiles with full Alienware 7.1 Virtual Surround sound and Hi-Fidelity 40mm Neodymium drivers so whether it’s games, movies, or music you know you’re hearing quality. The best part about this gift is that it’s not only fantastic for the recipient but also for everyone around them.
