Christmas is steadily speeding towards us but you’ve still got time to pick up some great gifts for the PC gamers you love. Or maybe you’ve missed the Christmas rush and are just hoping to scope out some savvy Boxing Day deals for yourself or a loved one. It can be hard choosing the perfect gift, but the good news is there’s a slew of PC gamer approved Alienware products on sale to help you out.
Alienware m15 Gaming Laptop
This 15 inch gaming laptop represents freedom, portability, and power for your favourite PC gamer. It’s the thinnest 15” laptop Alienware’s ever made and only weighs 2.16kgs making it one of the most portable gaming laptops around – it might even fit into a Christmas stocking. Despite this, the base model sports a 9th generation Intel Core i5 processor and an NVIDIA GTX 1650 graphics card – which will keep most gamers completely satisfied. For those that want that portability and their games to look the best around you can up this to a i9 processor and an incredibly powerful RTX 2070 complete with stunning ray tracing capabilities.
No matter the model you choose they all come equipped with the Advanced Alienware Cryo-tech V3.0 which means overheating is a thing of the past. One of the great things about gaming laptops is they’re the ultimate personal computer and part of that is picking the one that best suits the needs of the person who’ll be using it. The Alienware M15 Gaming Laptop gives you so many easy to choose options that you can be sure it’ll be the perfect fit for your intended recipient.
Alienware Area-51m Gaming Laptop
So the 15” wasn’t big enough for you? We get it. Take a look at the Alienware Area-51 “17 inch gaming laptop. This is essentially the step up from the previous build and while it does sacrifice some of the portable advantages of the 15” it more than makes up for them with pure power. For this base model you’re looking at an Intel Core i7 paired with an NVIDIA RTX GeForce RTX 2060. This can be boosted all the way up to an i9 and 2080 graphics card complete with a whopping 64 GB of DDR4 RAM.
Perhaps one of the most PC gamer things about this laptop though, is the ability to upgrade it after the fact. With the Alienware Area-51m Gaming Laptop you’ve given the gift of long lasting tech where they can make the changes they need as it comes. The Alienware Area-51m Gaming Laptop is gaming power in a box and it’ll make your gamer feel like they never left their home PC.
Alienware Aurora Gaming Desktop
“What if they don’t want to leave their desktop!” you cry. Well, we hear you on that one too but I bet they’d love an even better setup than they currently sport. For a lot of gamers, those laptops could still be better than their current PC but there’s something to having a dedicated, reliable, beast of a unit at your desk, and that’s the Alienware Aurora Gaming Desktop. Perhaps even better is that it’s at a great price for Christmas and Boxing day.
This PC is VR ready and like the laptops, can be configured to meet the needs of whoever is going to end up at the keyboard. You can get it in up to an Intel Core i9 processor with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 which is some top of the line power but it’s also built with the tinkerer in mind. The incredibly sleek case has been specifically engineered to make it as easy as possible to make upgrades in the future which includes things like liquid cooling and overclocking for the more hardcore enthusiasts. It also gives you full access to a plethora of ports that any peripheral junkie will tell you is a bonus that pays off in spades.
Alienware 34 Curved Gaming Monitor
Speaking of peripherals, aside from a PC one of the most important items any gamer can own is a good monitor. The clarity and precision of a screen can totally make or break a gaming experience so it’s nothing to skimp on. This Alienware 34” curved gaming monitor is the perfect companion to sit proudly atop your gamer’s desk. Think of it like the star on a Christmas tree.
Not only does it have IPS Nano Color technology to really bring out the full spectrum but it also sports a 120Hz refresh rate to make clicking heads easier than ever. It also comes with NVIDIA’s G-SYNC tech which means it’ll be ready to roll with NVIDIA graphics cards to keep things perfectly in sync. This 3440 x 1440 curved wide QHD display is sure to up the immersion and during the Christmas and Boxing Day sales, you can get it for a fraction of its usual price.
Alienware 27 Gaming Monitor
Not everyone has the desk space for such wide unit and that’s where something like the Alienware 27” Gaming Monitor comes in. This is a smaller model but offers a higher refresh rate with 240Hz at your disposal. It also supports NVIDIA G-Sync and AMD’s FreeSync so no matter what (Christmas) card they’re running you can be sure they’ll experience tear-free gaming. Despite the power, this monitor is a more affordable option and with the Christmas and Boxing Day sales, it’s even cheaper again.
Alienware 55 OLED Gaming Monitor
Perhaps dropping to the 27” was the wrong direction for your giftee. More and more PC Gamers are using their computers in the loungeroom on a TV. Unfortunately, doing this they sacrifice the speed and quality of a monitor which is precisely why the Alienware 55” OLED gaming monitor exists.
This absolute unit is big TV-sized without any of the downsides. It absolutely won’t fit in a stocking but with Christmas and Boxing Day sales discounts, perhaps it’s worth just buying a bigger sock. It’s 55” screen sports a 4k resolution with the unprecedented contrast of OLED technology. It plays with a 120Hz refresh rate and an 0.5ms image refresh time so you’re not losing any frames like you normally would in a PC Gaming TV scenario. AMD Freesync is also supported and there’s even a Gamer-centric on-screen display to further dial in those gamer settings.
