Point & click: SteelSeries Rival 600

SteelSeries created an incredible pointer for gamers. Not only is the sensor accurate and reliable for even the most intense action, but it's also comfortable to use for longer sessions and feels great to use. The ability to configure just how much the mouse weighs using the bundled weights is a nice touch.

Hear everything: HP OMEN Mindframe headset

Built-in speakers have come leaps and bounds over the last decade, but a decent audio setup on your laptop is still no match for a solid gaming headset like the HP OMEN Mindframe. As an added bonus, these cups are super comfortable to wear for long gaming sessions, so you won't have to stop because of sore ears.

Budget bagckpack: AmazonBasics Laptop Backpack

Amazon makes a wide range of products under its "Basics" brand, and quite honestly, a lot of the products go far beyond what I'd describe as basic. This Amazon Basics laptop bag is just $34, sporting high-quality construction and materials, with plenty of storage for all of the accessories in this article and more. It sports space for laptops up to 17 inches.

Adding a few handy accessories to the Alienware m15 makes it a compelling gaming experience. Out-the-box, touchpad and keyboard just isn't the best way to enjoy your catalog of titles, which is where some of these additions take it to the next level and allow the laptop to perform as intended. Maybe get a gamepad, so you don't have to rely on a mouse and keyboard, or get a monitor to blow up that picture.
