We reviewed this new for 2019 laptop scored it an “Amazing” 9.2/10.

The Alienware Area-51m is a true desktop replacement laptop in every sense of the phrase. The Area-51m is the first notebook with a socketed desktop CPU and a swappable GPU. Talk about a future-proof laptop. It’s well designed, exceedingly powerful, and kept up with anything I threw at it.

The CPU and GPU in this Area 51m are both desktop-grade components. The RTX 2070 is much faster than an RTX 2080 Max-Q mobile GPU. The Intel Core i7-9700K processor will also run circles around any mobile processor variant.

Score an RTX 2080 equipped Alienware desktop for under $1300 following the instructions below. Stock specs include an Intel Core i5-9400 6-core processor, 8GB of memory, and 1TB HDD.

If you’ve got deep pockets, you can upgrade to the RTX 2080 Ti instead. This is the only way you’ll be able to get a brand new, fully warrantied pre-built RTX 2080 Ti configuration for under $2K.

The G7 is Dell’s highest end gaming laptop outside of Alienware. This particular config comes equipped with the latest 9th generation Intel Core i7 processor and the new GeForce GTX 1660 Ti video card. The GTX 1660 Ti mobile variant performs on par with the RTX 2060, which means it’s about 10%-25% faster than the GTX 1060. It also boasts a 15″ 1080p IPS display, Intel Core i7-9750 processor, 8GB of memory, and dual drives.

Factor in the Visa card and you’re essentially paying $899.99 for this very powerful gaming rig. This Alienware chassis houses a 9th generation Intel 6-core processor, 16GB of RAM, and your choice of either a 512GB SSD or dual drives (256GB SSD + 2TB HDD). The equipped GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is equivalent in performance to the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, which is more than enough to run any game from the Steam Summer Sale at up to 1440p.

Dell Outlet is currently offering a really good set of tiered coupon codes that work on all Dell and Alienware laptops, desktops, and monitors. All Dell Outlet PCs include a full 1 year Dell warranty, same as buying new.

240Hz?? You read that right. The Alienware AW2518HF 25″ 1080p Monitor is all about speed and gaming accuracy. Besides having a blazing fast 1ms response time, this is one of the very few monitors that can support a 240Hz refresh rate, and possibly the only such monitor priced under $300. It’s also equipped with FreeSync for those with AMD video cards.

Dell’s Black Friday in July sale officially kicks off with best-of-2019 prices on several TVs. You will find both value-minded and uber high end options available. Not only are these TVs marked down to the lowest current prices you’ll find anywhere, they all also include a gift card that can be used on almost anything at Dell.com, including consoles, monitors, VR headsets, games, video cards, and PCs. The gift card carries a 90-day expiration.

Premium 4K Smart HDTVs with True HDR:

If you’re looking for a smaller TV, i.e. for a cubby, dorm room, bedroom, or anywhere where a bigger size just won’t do, this is one of the best deals you’ll find. This TV has built-in smart integration via Amazon’s Fire TV interface and the 720p resolution is enough for the screen size.

Amazon has just dropped the price on the brand new Airpods 2 to $139 from $159. The new Airpods 2 introduces hands-free Siri, boosts the battery life, and promises faster performance over the previous version.

If you missed out on this gem, now’s the time to jump in as it’s at the lowest price it’s ever been. The Game of the Yorha edition includes the expansion and all released DLC.

Update: Box art revealed!

This newly announced collector’s edition Blu-ray set normally sells for $330, but it’s currently preorderable for only $250. You can say what you want about Season 8, but I’m sure most will agree that Game of Thrones is one of the best series that has graced modern television. You’ll be able to binge all 8 season (73 episodes) in glorious HD. The collector’s edition will also include 15 hours of bonus content and never-before-seen footage.

Regarding preorders in general on Amazon, you won’t be charged for your order until the item actually ships. There’s no penalty to cancelling at any time. If the price drops even further before the item ships out, your price will be automatically adjusted to the lower price without you doing anything.

After plunking down $300 on a Nintendo Switch, you might find it hard to spend more money on accessories. Unfortunately, the Switch only comes with 32GB of onboard storage, which is inadequate if you hope to build out any kind of digital library. Fortunately, you can increase your storage capacity 9-fold for only $40. For most people, a 256GB card is all you’ll ever need to hold every single one of your games.

The Samsung EVO Select is a faster memory card than the other memory card (SanDisk Ultra) we like to push. This is a U3 card as opposed to the U1 spec of the SanDisk Ultra, which means that the Samsung EVO has a faster minimum sustained write speed.

The Switch internal battery has a 4,100mAh capacity. That means that this charger will essentially triple your battery life. For a limited time you can get it at no additional cost to buying a Switch.

You’ll need to create a (free) account to get this” Power Deal”. PS Plus membership discounts only happen a few times a year so grab this deal when you can. This membership gives lets you play games online, the best discounts at the Playstation Store, and new free games every month.

The new 2018 model Vizio D-series TVs are priced lower than what we saw on Black Friday. At its price point, the Vizio D-series TVs are one of the best rated panels around. Extending the warranty to 3 years only costs $26.

The PS4 Pro is a more powerful version of the PS4 and PS4 Slim. If you want to run games in 4K with HDR enabled, this is the console to get. This was a Day of Play deal from E3 but Walmart is currently the only vendor that’s still honoring this price.

If you’ve decided to keep Kindle Unlimited for the long haul, there are great deals for extended plans. The longer the plan, the bigger you save. This deal is in the form of a gift, but you can simply gift it to yourself.

Log into your Amazon Prime account to see this deal.  An Audible membership normally costs $149.50 per year. With this deal you’re paying $119.50 and you’re getting a 3rd generation Amazon Echo Dot for just $1. With this membership you can listen to Amazon Audible’s extended audiobook library whenever and wherever you want. Every month you also get 1 credit worth 1 audiobook at any price. This you can keep forever.

If you commute long hours daily, then this is definitely for you.
